Homemade Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head Couple Costume
We decided to be Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head and the best part was that we actually had parts that you could change and move around the whole night; we even had the pocket in the back for these extra parts and we changed our faces throughout the evening.
We thought about adding a bucket of fun but we felt that the costumes' back pockets were even funnier than doing a bucket of fun.
First, we made the body of the Homemade Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head Couple Costume. We then added a ring on the inside of the bottom to keep the shape of the body and used Velcro on the back opening for easy access and fastening. It was not very easy to drive with these on!.
The progression of our costumes can be seen in the various parts we cut out and mounted: - multiple mouths: talking mouth, vampire teeth, bucked teeth, surprise mouth and the normal original smiling face - multiple noses: original round nose, extra small nose, big nose as seen in "Toy Story". - tear drops, nose ring, bandage, eye patch.
Everything had Velcro affixed to it, even the pupils, so we could track the different moods of our 'Potatoes' throughout the evening. We even made extra parts to show that Mr. Potato Head was getting sleepy and then, when he was angry. The mustache came in handy here because it also served as eyebrows. We would be happy to send you multiple pictures to show the different phases.
Last but not least, we drew on the black holes where the pieces for the original Potato Heads were affixed.

Homemade Mr. Potato Head Halloween Costume
My son and I love Toy Story and Mr. Potato Head. So I decided to go all out and make this Homemade Mr. Potato Head Halloween Costume. It is made with chicken wire, papier-mâché, and foam. His hat is an extra-large bowl painted black. The eyes were made with two clear ornament balls and black wire mesh behind them, so my son could see and breath out of the costume. The shoes are vinyl over very large clown shoes.
I started preparing this costume back in September so that the papier-mâché would dry properly. I created a shell shape and arm holes, to support the papier-mâché. I used my son’s Mr. Potato Head as the model, including taking it to the paint store to match the color. If I had to do another costume using this technique, I would use a stiffer type of wire, rather than chicken wire. The chicken wire bent and gave a little too easily.
My son could not believe how much it looked like Mr. Potato Head. He was very happy with his costume and likes to see and share the pictures of him in it. His friends ask him where did you stand? His answer is, “Inside of it silly!”

We decided to make this Homemade Mister Potato Head Child Halloween Costume because our son loved the toy. It was actually very easy to do.
I followed the pattern of a bumblebee and made the body of the potato. I then included an extra flap in the back and had false pieces hanging out, just like the real toy. I used felt and foam for the rest of the body parts.
I dressed my son in flesh-colored tights (MPH doesn't have legs so I did not want them to stand out!). He also wore a white shirt and white gloves. He wore an oversized hat that I made out of a foam hat and extra foam. The hat covered his face but he had space to see and breathe. To top it off, I spray-painted his shoes with glossy paint.
The costume was a hit! We won a local contest and we were all so pleased.
