Homemade Colonel Sanders Riding a Chicken Costume
I started this Homemade Colonel Sanders Riding a Chicken Costume about 10 days before Halloween. I began by bending chicken wire to shape the outline of the chicken itself. When that was in place, it gave it 4 layers of paper mache. There was a large hole left in the middle for me to stand in.
I purchased 2 feather pillows and cut them open and spread the feathers all over the chicken form using flour and water for glue. The beek was made of cardboard covered with felt and so was the crown. The mask I wore was originally a Santa mask. I revised it by cutting some of the beard off and simply added the hat. I bought the white blazer at a 2nd hand store and carried a cane and KFC bucket.
The chicken was quite heavy so I used suspenders to hold it over my shoulders. The legs are just gold colored leggings with lines drawn on them. The feet were cut out of foam bed covering (the kind with the bumps on it). It ended up being so large that I needed to ride in the back of a truck to get around town. A good time was had by all.

Homemade Colonel Sanders and the Chicken Couple Costume
My parents were invited to my cousin's wedding which was on Halloween and there was to be a costume contest involved. My mom was trying to figure out what they would be. She got the brilliant idea to do Colonel Sanders and a chicken since it was right about the time people were claiming that KFC used genetically modified chicken.
So she got to work on making her Homemade Colonel Sanders and the Chicken Couple Costume . She made a suit out of fur, then hot glued feathers/felt for the top of her head onto the whole thing. She wore orange tights and hot glued black fake nails onto slippers that she had dyed orange (sorry it isn't pictured, it was epic!). She went to KFC to get a clean bucket which she turned into her purse for the evening.
My dad had it a bit easier. He rented a white suit and hat from a tux shop, bought Buddy Holly glasses and wore nice black shoes. He ended up using White-Out to make his goatee more white because his had some brown in it.
They ended up winning the competition and had a great night!

This is my daughter Zoë on her first Halloween. She was about seven months old at the time. During my pregnancy, eggs, and fried chicken were my favorite. It was especially funny as before I was pregnant chicken on the bone in any fashion was something I just wouldn't eat.
The chicken costume was adorable as is, but then I thought, 'How about a bucket of chicken?' I suggested the Homemade Bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken Baby Costum idea to my husband as a joke, but he just thought it was the cutest idea. My mother-in-law created drum sticks from cut down pencils, felt and batting, and we sat her in an empty KFC bucket filled with blankets and cut-out leg holes. You had to see us at KFC asking for empty chicken buckets in varying sizes- the cashier thought we were crazy!
Zoë had a slight cold in these pictures but she loved to ham it up for the cameras, and was such a good girl letting me pose her for multiple shots.

We dressed as Colonel Sanders and a Bucket of KFC Chicken. We handed out chicken to our party guests. The bucket was homemade from a Keg tub and printed off Google Images and red duct tape. The Col Sanders costume was pretty basic but we bought a Santa Clause beard/wig set and cut it.
