This is my tribute to the Muppets. I absolutely love the Muppets and am very excited that a new movie is about to come out. My husband was Beaker, I was Gonzo, and my sister was Animal.

For Gonzo, I took a football helmet and built it up using pieces of foam and hot glue. It took about three to four layers to get it to that size. I also used foam around the front part of the helmet to get the mouth shape as best I could, as well as around the neck.

I then crumpled up some newspaper and wrapped it in duct tape to get the nose shape. I hot glued that to the head and then covered it in blue felt. I used the blue felt around the mouth as well. I used blue furry material and covered the rest of the head.

For the eyes, I cut off about 1/3 of a styrofoam ball (to give it a flat side to glue) and covered it in white, yellow, and a small piece of brown fleece material and hot glued them to the head. As a finishing touch to the head, I added black feathers to the back crown of the head.

I also took some leftover fur and made some hands. I simply safety pinned them to my vintage suit that I bought and wore with my dad's vintage bow-tie because Gonzo is such a snazzy dresser.

I had a great time wearing this homemade Gonzo costume and we were stopped quite often for pictures.

Coolest Power Rangers Woman's Couple Costume

GO GO Power Rangers!

My friend and I decided on a Homemade Power Rangers Woman's Couple Costume this year. We couldn't find any online that we liked so we made them fairly easy.

We found the tube top dresses and the leggings on Amazon. To make the diamonds we bought some white fabric and glued them on to the dresses with fabric glue.

To make the belt buckles we found a PR logo to use and tried to make it look similar to the original. To make the buckle more sturdy we glued it onto some cardboard. We couldn't find any cheap white boots so we just used shin guard socks and with marker made the diamonds. We wanted some sort of weapon but the only thing we could find were swords.

Overall spent about 35 dollars each. Easy to make and got a lot of compliments.

**A side note that we discovered, because the dresses were stretchy it was best to glue the diamonds while the dresses were on. Otherwise they got funny looking

Example of our inspiration ;)

This year we had decided to go as Dwight and Angela from the hit TV show The Office. I found clothes to be Angela at my local Goodwill. It wasn't hard to find stuffy grandma clothes there, lol! And already had the stuffed cat to tote around (since Angela is obsessed with her cats).

Dwight's outfit was also found at a thrift store. We spent the most on the glasses which we took the lenses out of and the signature calculator watch which we found at Walmart. We hadn't even planned on the watch but after stumbling upon it at Walmart, we couldn't resist!

We topped Dwight off with a wig which we customized as best we could to try and achieve the Dwight haircut. All items cost us under 30 bucks. I added special touches by creating Dunder-Mifflin names tags with our pictures on them so wear around as well. All in all everyone loved our Dwight and Angela from The Office Couple Costume and we were immediately recognizable. :)

Coolest Homemade Price Is Right Contestant Costume 3

Homemade Price Is Right Contestant Costume

Homemade Price Is Right Contestant Costume

This is a homemade Price is Right contestant costume. It is made to look like I bid the winning number and am ready to 'come on down' to contestants row.

I made this with a sturdy white board that I purchased from a convenience store and carefully placed yellow and green construction paper to make it look like the Price is Right contestants row. The black microphone was made from black fuzzy twist ties and a simple wire was placed in the back so I could easily put it around my head and it would look like I'm standing behind it.

The name tag was also made from yellow construction paper to make it look like I came right from the television show. There are always College students on the show, so I decided to wear a Penn State sweatshirt to pose as a crazy college guy who won. Total cost = $30 and worth every penny.

I wanted to heckle people all night with this Homemade Waldorf from the Muppets Halloween Costume. No costume is better than one of the critics in the balcony on the Muppet Show!

Made out of paper mache, felt, fur fabric, lots of glue.
