Cool Homemade Yip Yips Halloween Costumes
Muppets are big this year. PBS under fire. Brought out the Yip Yips to make a stand for the Muppets, as well as bring back a little bit of our childhood. Was so great to see people light up and smile when they saw us or when we were chanting ‘yip,yip,yip..ring,ring,ring’. People loved taking their pictures with us.
Costume is easy, take a sheet, cut out the mouth, put black mesh in the mouth so you can see out but not be seen in photographs. Take two Styrofoam balls and glue on top and put pupils on the balls, and a couple of pipe wires for antenna and you have an amazing costume. Mouth is manipulated with sticks from inside the costume. Costume didn’t get hot, and arms only got a tiny bit tired by the end of the night. Was worth the soreness to have people smile and enjoy the costume. Was a great Halloween!!
