Homemade MA.S.K Agents Gloria Baker and Matt Trakker Costumes
Back in the mid 80's a cartoon came out called M.A.S.K. It captivated me and has made me a life long fan. So, this year for Halloween I thought it would be great to go as Matt Trakker and drag my girlfriend along as Gloria Baker. This issue with being one of the M.A.S.K characters is that because it hasn't been around for over 20 years, costumes were hard to come by. I couldn't even find an example of someone doing something like this online, so I just started from scratch and the Homemade M.A.S.K Agents Gloria Baker and Matt Trakker Costumes were born.
Modeling the clothing off of pictures that I had, my girlfriend sewed the costumes and I made the helmets. Getting all of the details were hard, and because I'd never made a mask before, they were far from being perfect, but the results still turned out fairly well for me. The helmets were constructed with a cardboard base for the skeletons and then covered with paper mache.
Then the painted and detailing finished everything off. It was a lot of work to put it all together, but it was one of the best and most rewarding costumes I've had to date.

My daughter wanted to be WordGirl from PBS for Halloween, so we made her a WordGirl Costume including Captain Huggy Face. We used a yellow t-shirt under a scoop neck red unitard, and made a cape with orange and red satin. The head cover I ordered from a dance wear store to match the unitard.
The emblem on the front is just cut from craft foam and double stick taped to the unitard. The gold belt is from the thrift store with a buckle cover made of craft foam. The boot covers are just the bottom half of red tights. You can only use them once (because the get pretty beat up when you walk) but they worked for the night. The gloves are red fleece gloves for winter, and since we live up North this seemed to be a good choice once night fell.
Captain Huggy Face is one of those monkey with Velcro on the hands that you can put around your neck. I used fabric scraps to make his costume and used scraps of craft foam to make the emblem and belt. A silver pipe clean at the top finished it off. Our daughter was one of a kind!
We always make our own costumes and these Homemade Bluntman and Chronic Costumes just might be the hardest one to do! I'm a BBW and my hubby is thin, so we always have to match.
I hand made these costumes in less than 12 hours. A lot of paint, sewing and hot glue! When we went to the bar, none of our friends knew it was us. Everyone thought I was a man. I have long brown hair so that was easy, but for the beard and mustache, I bought it at a Halloween store and made some adjustments to it. I even used the hair I trimmed off to glue to my eyebrows.
My husband's wasn't too bad, cut up some shorts and some longjohns! We won $500 bucks that night!
