This is a completely Homemade Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Costume. My boyfriend's favorite movie growing up was Ghostbusters and he looked high and low to find a good costume and it didnt exist so he decided to make his own. The Best you will find.

The head is made out of chicken wire which was then paper mached twice. After drying for the 2nd time the head was painted white and eyes were drawn and holes were cut out to see. The eyebrows and cheeks were made with chalk. The mouth was drawn, cut out and covered with speaker cloth so it was breathable. The Stay Puft hat rim is made out of cardboard. The rest is an old t-shirt stuffed with plastic bags.

The pants and shirt, both XXL to XXXL, were found at the Goodwill. The belly was a trash bag wrapped around the neck and stuffed with tissue paper. The arms and legs were both filled with bubble wrap and tissue paper taped together. To give a marshmallow appearance rubberbands were used. The bib and scarf were both made from access fabric.

The costume cost less than $25.

I got the idea for this Homemade Stay Puft Marshamallow Man Costume from this site, but I am someone who needs perfection so I decided to elaborate on it. I bought 2 pairs of sweat suits (1 med., 1 XXL) and I sewed them inside of the other. Then stuffed each section with stuffing from a craft store and sewed each section shut piece by piece.

For the head I took a cardboard box, beat the crap out of it until it formed a close shape and then used 3 rolls of tape to get it to hold that shape permanently. After, I used felt to cover the head and cut the eyes and mouth out. Using nylons I glued over the eyes so that I could still see, yet made the costume look near professional.

The night was a blast, I won 3 costume contests and also got very very drunk. Double WIN!

I made a Homemade Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Costume this year for Halloween 2010. I used 2 cardboard boxes, for the body, and head, and a couple of frisbees for the hat. I cut an old navy blue hoody for the bib and hat part and I used white trash bags, to cover the body and head..

The eyes were just drawn on paper, and I used electrical tape (red, blue,and white) for the writing on the hat and bib lines and I used glue and clear tape to hold the trash bags together.

It turned out better than I expected. Hope you like it.

I wanted to make a big Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Costume for a long time but never thought I could do it. I made this for Halloween this year and I think it's going to be my best costume ever. It was done all in one week and all hand stitched and stuffed.

The head is made out of round card board with fabric on top. It's super hot to wear walking around California but it's worth it when dozens of little kids want to take pictures with you.
I'm just not sure how I'm going to top it next year.

I've alwasy wanted a Stay Puft costume since I saw the movie when I was 5. Now being 25 I figured why the heck. I heard about a costume contest at a local club and started on it. After 2 days of trial and error on how to make the body I finally got it right.

Total cost of building the costume was about 50 dollar. I ended up winning the contest. The next day took my son trick or treating and needless to say he got extra candy and took more pix with kids and parents alike. Enjoy!
