Homemade Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Costume

My husband made this costume after our six year old son decided he wanted to be the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man for Halloween this year.

He got an extra large adult T-shirt and extra large sweatpants, sewed them onto a T-shirt and sweatpants of our son's size, and stuffed them full of batting. He added stitching to a few areas on the legs and around the wrists, to make that "bunched" sort of look.

For the head, he got a cardboard hatbox, painted it, cut out the face and drew on the eyebrows. He attached an old ballcap to the inside so that it would fit our son's head more snugly and comfortably. For the hat, he used the lid of the hatbox, with some more batting covered with fabric, and then attached the tassle with a button he had covered in blue felt.

For the collar part, he just used blue and white felt, and red ribbon. The final touch was some plain white gloves. The costume was a huge hit with everyone who saw it. It was a bit tricky for him to navigate while walking around trick-or-treating, so we had to hold on to him, but he was thrilled with his costume!

Coolest Marshmallow Man Halloween Costume 4

This is the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Halloween costume from Ghostbusters fame. He is about 7 1/2 ft tall. The upper body is made of layers of foam remnants clear packing tape and held together by hot glue. The skin is felt like material from a dry goods store and glued on like a moppet. He probably weighs twenty pounds and was easy to wear.

Foam doesn't breath so I added small holes for ventilation and used a battery powered fan to circulate air. The pants were sweats covered in rolls of foam.

The head was the hardest part, sheets of foam were rolled into a cylinder and glued together. The face was carved and painted.

Finally he was transported around in the bed of a truck

Here is our Completely Homemade Ghostbuster and StayPuft. All but the Ghostbuster patches were homemade. We had a great time and the Stay Puft was the center of attention all night. He WAS hard to miss!

Our Ghostbuster pack was packed with lights. We used battery operated LED Christmas lights and blinky star lights in the "cyclotron" I added EL wire to the end of the gun to illustrate the blasting as in the movies.

StayPuft was made from foam pipe insulation, duct tape and foam sheeting. He was covered in white polar fleece fabric. The head was paper mache and paint. for his feet we covered white Crocs with the foam and fabric. Leg marshmallows were attached to white sweatpants.

Wow!!!
by: Heather

Please please give me detailed instructions on how to make both of these costumes. My son's 6th birthday party is in October and something like this would blow his mind!!! It would be something I know he would always look back on and say "Wow mom. That was pretty cool!". Plus me and his sister (who is 4) always try to wear matching themed costumes and they would LOVE me for doing this for them!! If you would, please e-mail me at heathereverage@rocketmail.com

This Homemade Ghost Buster Costume was my daughter Christy's idea. We used a large cardboard box and painted it red. Used another piece of the box to cut out the face. After cutting out the face we smeared glue on top of the box and placed the fabric over it to make the white ghost face.

We used the rest of the bed sheet to make almost a poncho but from the head. Very easy to make and looks amazing in the dark.

Coolest Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Halloween Costume 3

Stay-Puft!

Stay-Puft!

This Stay Puft Marshmallow man Halloween costume wasn't very difficult. The pants, I had to make, with a simple pattern, but made the waist huge, and with an elastic band that stretched.

The top was a white sweatshirt. I made the blue handkerchief and tie. The hat is Styrofoam discs glued together, then I hollowed out the inside to fit on his head.

Pinned on a large hat with padding inside.
