Homemade KIA Soul Hamsters Costume

My friend and I decided to dress up as the KIA Soul Hamsters from the commercial. We love Halloween and make our own costumes every year but this year was by-far our favorite costumes. We bought all the matericals from boots to furs at the local thrift store and came out to about $20/costume.

We used old baseball caps, taped paper plates to the front the make the brim longer. Then we taped foam and crinkled up newspapers on top of the hat. We covered it with furs and scarfs we found at the thrift store. The eyes were made from foam and covered with garbage bag. The whiskers from plastic cups. The nose from construction paper and the ears from paper plates.

We won first place for our Homemade KIA Soul Hamsters Costume at the party we went to and played the song from the commercial when we entered the party, everyone sang along and joined in. Great time! Happy Halloween!!

Coolest Kia Hamster Costume

Homemade Kia Hamster Costume

Homemade Kia Hamster Costume

Here is the end results of my attempt to make a Homemade Kia Hamster Costume. I made the whole thing in about 10 hours. The head is made from plastic canvas foam and fur. The eyes are clear Christmas ornaments. I also hinged the jaw so it moves when I talk and I can drink normally.

I made the stencil for the hoodie on poster board and painted it on. It was the first time I ever made pants and they turned out pretty good. They have suspenders built in and I made the baggy so I could put a pillow in the front. The pants are plenty easy to move in. I finished just in time to make it to my friends costume wedding.

Everyone loved this Homemade Kia Hamster Costume and couldnt believe how well it turned out. I work at a KIA dealer and plan to get a picture in a soul.

Looking to make a Kia styled hamster costume
by: Suzanne Strehl

Such an awesome costume!! Looking to make one. The head you did is the best I have ever seen for any costume. That is the hardest part of a costume. Any information you can pass along either your own knowledge or a website that was very helpful would be greatly appreciated. About 20 years ago I was able to put together a dragon costume that ended up being over 6 foot tall with a 10 foot wing span. It started with a purchased dragon mask with many transformations in between. That you created this right off the bat is so majorly awesome! Take care and God bless!

Coolest KIA "Party Rock" Hamsters Costume

Homemade KIA "Party Rock" Hamsters Costume

We all LOVE the Kia hamsters commercial and decided to make them for Halloween this year! The heads are made out of paper mache and fur using painted door stops for the eyes. Cutting out the mouth and some of the eyes gave us breathing room and somewhere to see out of.

This KIA "Party Rock" Hamsters Costume took about 3 weeks and about $60 to make including the clothes found at our local thift stores! Clothing was all hip-hop clothes with some added "bling". We also made the cardboard box car in the the "this or that" commercial. This was a BIG hit at our local party.
