I love Halloween and I really love creating unique and original costumes. Every year I try to think of something fun and out of the box. This year I decided to make a Homemade Animal Costume from the Muppets. It was a HUGE HIT. Everywhere we went people went crazy for it. It was really fun and interactive… the drum set was the key.. everyone cheered along and chanted ANIMAL ANIMAL ANIMAL!
I made this costume myself using a hard hat, lots of felt, papertowel rolls for the fingers… and a ton of hot glue! I bought the drumset, sticks and wrist band / chain but the rest was all homemade and sewn. I made it so the jaw could open and close which worked really well when banging on the drums (or needing a drink). The teeth are made out of styrofoam and I could see out of the mouth.
Here’s a few pictures of the costume! I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it and being…..
