Our company decided to have a Halloween party in lieu of a holiday party so we knew we wanted to be something obscure as there was to be a contest! So we decided on Hamburglar and Officer Big Mac Costumes.
For the Hamburglar (ette), I used the striped top and bottom from a prison costume; the cape was from an old Dracula costume we had. The red scarf was cut from a piece of material and I used fabric glue to make mini hamburgers from various felt pieces. The hat we had from an old Zorro costume and I used yellow felt to make the McDonald's "M" on each side. Red gloves finished the look.
Officer Big Mac was a British "bobby" police costume and I used more felt to make the "M" belt buckle. The hat was more challenging. I found a hamburger hat and actually used 2 of them and stuffed them with crumpled paper to get the height. I sewed them on top of each other and added the felt eyes. For the very top I covered a piece of a toilet paper roll with dark blue felt, added a yellow "M" and then sewed that to the top of the hat.
Of course, the McDonald's bag added the finishing touch. BTW, there were more than 400 costumed people at the party and we won!
Homemade Hamburglar Costume - (caught in the act!)
Being that Halloween has been my FAVORITE day of the year, I am known to always appear in a handmade costume with any necessary PROPS in hand. My best friend and I enjoy the month of October for two obvious reasons... Halloween and McDONALD'S MONOPOLY GAME PIECE TIME!!! We figured it'd only be appropriate to express this via costume at our city's annual fright night bash!
At first, I discussed with my friend how I thought the Hamburglar would be perfect for her... and it was then that we saw it vital I go as the Hamburger! Week of Halloween, I began to create our attire. Being that we are in our twenties, we spiced the outfits up a tad!
I hit up the fabric stores around town in order to make the cape, tie, tops, and juicy McDress! Can't paint the town without a purse in hand, but unfortunately those only become a hassle on Halloween... NO WORRIES! I had sewn in two pockets (one on each side) of the Hamburglar's cape and attached a wristlet holder to a McDonald's To-Go bag to take care of the goods! Now we are hands free and ready to getting every Photo Op possible for this wild night!

This year I decided to dress in a Homemade Hamburglar Halloween Costume. This was a fun costume. My buddy Shawn went as Mr. T, another very good costume as well!!! This was so much fun. I went to McD's and ordered, well... HAMBURGERS!!! We got pics of it and everything. Also we went to West Hollywood for the big costume parade and it was a blast. The costume went over very well, and the photo opportunities were a blast! Unfortunately for Mr. T, he headed down to WeHo a little late and ended up getting stuck in horrific traffic and never made it to Santa Monica Blvd.
This was a fun costume to create. I shopped all over and found several pieces at various shops on Hollywood Blvd. I bought some felt, used some cardboard, and even made the yellow ribbon by cutting a piece from the cape of my old Batman costume.
This got a lot of great compliments and was so much fun to wear out and around!
