I started making this Eric Cartman costume because it was for my art class during the Halloween season. I started by using paper Mache and making a large sphere and then wrapped it in chicken wire to make it sturdier then some more layers of paper Mache.
Obviously next I painted the face and used Styrofoam balls for the eyes. I used cloth that I sewed to make the gloves and the yellow part of the hat. I found the jacket lying around the house then stuffed it with some padding to make myself look chunkier.
Total Spent: $20
