I created this Sulley from Monsters Inc costume from some Cosmo Girl! I decorated with fabric that I got on sale. (This Sulley is about 6’5" so I got almost three yards.) I just outlined a pair of his jeans and a shirt. I suppose a pattern would have worked too. I draped some fabric over his head for a hood and used a Styrofoam heart (cut in half) for the horns.
The spines on the back are kitchen sponges that are glued on. The tail was just pinned on with safety pins.
Total Spent: $35
