For Bunsen Honeydew: First I got a big ball from Walmart and paper mached it. Then I cut the mouth big enough so my daughter would be able to see out of it. I used clay to paper mache the big nose and ears and glued them on and painted it all green. I grabbed some large glasses from the dollar store and glued that on as well. I found lab coats and ties at the Goodwill for both costumes.
For Beaker: I used flexible plastic that I found at Walmart and shaped it so it looks tubular. Then I cut an area out for his mouth and paper mached it all. I used more clay to make Beaker's large nose, which I paper mached as well and then glued on. I painted Beaker a pink color and found orange colored fuzzy yarn at the fabric store. I got two big Styrofoam balls for his eyes and used a black marker to draw small circles in.
The girls had so much fun with these Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker Costumes and a lot of people wanted to take pictures with them! I just hope that Jim Henson would be proud!

Homemade Beaker from the Muppets Halloween Costume
This is my beaker costume from 2008. I went out in San Francisco and people loved it. I was stopped every two seconds to take a picture with someone...
I made it with construction paper, fleece material, carve-able foam, lots of hot glue and spray glue. The top was made with a plastic bowl that I glued the red furry hair material onto. The eyes are foam balls that I filled, sanded and painted. I can see through some screen material that I covered the inside of the mouth with.
As a final touch I carried around a flask with “water” and dry ice that I could drink through my bendy straw.
