Kermit the Frog took me about 2 weeks to construct and and alot of trial and era but finally got this masterpiece to look like the real deal. We went to a couple of big parties in arizona and placed 1st at one with over 1000 people there and 2nd at the other with over 400 people. Everybody loved the costume and all the hard work paid off. We were featured on many local radio station websites as well. The best part that most people do not expect is that I'm a guy and people can not believe a guy can sew something like this. I will admit that it is not perfect when you look closely at it but I think it turn out pretty good for not being a pro.
My girlfriend and I love Halloween and enjoy making our costumes because we do not want to buy a costume that everybody can be. We love be different for everyone else and having the shock factor when we walk in the room or attend a party.
In case you were wondering how Kermit the Frog was constructed? It is made out of Fury blanket material from Joann's and stuffing. The head is constructed out of Styrofoam, foam, stuffing and a screen to look out of through the mouth.
Miss Piggy is wearing a wig with homemade ears sewed on and a pig nose that was glued on her face.

Homemade Kermit and Miss Piggy Couple Halloween Costume
These Homemade Kermit and Miss Piggy couple Halloween costume ideas came to my fiance and I because we wanted something cute and not often done for Halloween.
We found a green hooded sweater, green pants and a light green T-shirt. We then crafted the light green T-shirts into triangle shapes and placed them around the neckline, wrists and ankles of Kermit. All we used were safety pins to hold them in place. For the eyes, we bought Styrofoam balls and made them look as similar as Kermit's eyes as possible. We then sewed the eyes on the hood of the sweater, painted his face green and voila!
We bought a cheap red dress, blonde wig, crown, craft foam, fake eyelashes, pig nose, spirit gum and boa. For the wig we crafted pig ears then glued the ears to the crown. Once dried, we then glued the crown to the wig. For make up mascara, blush, purple eyeshadow and fake lashes! Oh, and can't forget the red lips! We also added pearls, long gloves, a ring and a black cover up.
Since we had a lot of the items in our home, both outfits cost us roughly $30.00 to make.
I came up with the idea about a day before the party I was going to and I went to the store spent about 12 dollars total on the Kermit the Frog costume. 6 dollars for long johns (pants) and I bought a ping pong ball for the eyes - 50 cents. I got some hair spray for 3 dollars and some paint for my body and face... and felt..
This picture was taken towards the end of the night so half of the paint is worn off. I don't have a better picture of earlier in the evening. The only thing I would have done differently is gotten better paint and got extra felt to put on my shoes to make it look like webbed frog feet. Everybody loved this Kermit the Frog costume and it was different. Thanks, Enjoy.

Homemade Muppet Miss Piggy and Kermit Couple Costume
I have a reputation of always having great costumes. I feel the good pressure every year to come up with something brilliant that makes people say "She's done it again!"
This Homemade Muppet Miss Piggy and Kermit Couple Costume was one of my husband and my best costumes we have ever done! We had a famous couples dance for Halloween and we wanted something better than the average costume. Something that fit our body types. We decided on Miss Piggy and Kermit because I'm curvy and my hubby is skinny. I had a really sparkly diva-dress and heels. I bought a "hannah montana" wig on clearance and made a nose on string and ears on a headband. My husband wore green clothes and I made him flippers and a collar like Kermit.
