To make a bat costume, start with an all-black outfit. Then use an old black umbrella and cut off the handle (you may need a pair of heavy duty scissors for this). Cut out three or four of the sections. Then attach large rubber bands to the stokes that are on the inside of the umbrella and wear over your arms as you would a backpack. Dress up the outfit with a pair of ears or fangs.
