Coolest Charlie Brown and Gang Group Costumes
We made these costumes for a Christmas parade in Mt. Pleasant Tennessee. We also made Snoopy’s Dog house, Lucy’s Psych booth and Schroeder’s Piano. We won first place overall and first place for a church. The heads are papier mache, Luc’s dress is a XX-large T-shirt with a ruffle sewn to the bottom and buttons added.
Papier Mache was 2 inch newspaper. We started with the balloons that you can punch (has a rubber band on the end) and used a recipe I found on the internet. Lucy’s hair is black felt, hot glued to the head and shaped by putting the cardboard from toilet paper rolls underneath.
Linus’s hair was black pipe cleaners, we punched small holes in the top and hot glued them in place.
Had a blast!!
