After looking at this site for potential Cap’n Crunch costumes I noticed people had good ideas but no one really nailed it. I came up with my own way of making this costume for literally under 30 bucks and No Sewing Needed!
Bought (4) 9×12 blue foam craft sheets. Made a hat pattern glued it together with foam glue sold next to the foam sheets.
Foam Sheets cost like 1 dollar a piece and glue was like 2 bucks.
For the “C” on the hat I bought gold sticky back foam sheet, also 1 dollar and white sticky felt sheet for the eye brows and mustache.
This was the hard part to find something similar instead of trying to sew some fleece together and have a cheap crappy looking jacket. You wont find a jacket like this in the men’s dept. sorry. I looked in the women’s and found this blue blazer at Walmart for 8 bucks. I tried Google searching everything from chef coats, pea coats, smocks, lab coats, captains coat, blazers, etc. to find the perfect jacket for a reasonable price.
Again with gold sticky foam I made the buttons and epaulets. I bought some gold fringe at the craft store to glue onto the foam epaulets. Also bought some gold ribbon and with double sided hem tape I was able to stick the ribbon around the jacket’s cuffs.
Anything white will pretty much do. If your mom is a nurse like in my case you can use her white pants scrubs. I’m sure anything down to white sweat pants would look fine.
I had the boot covers from an old pirate costume I had or maybe it was the Santa costume, I forget. If you don’t have boot covers I think they are fairly cheap at costume shops if not I think some fisherman rubber boot type galoshes thing might be reasonably priced at a Walmart.
I think that covers the costume. I ‘m pretty good with Photoshop so I went a little over the top editing this photo so I apologize.
