Sushi Costume with Headpiece | Instructables    How cool is this costume!? You do need a little bit of sewing experience to create the piece of fish but the rest is pretty straight forward - the ‘wasabi’ headpiece is made from felt and then you just need to wear white clothes and tie your fish on with some black ‘seaweed’.
