This Danger Mouse Costume was a lengthy costume to make, but well worth the time and effort.
DM is a legendary British cartoon hero, from back in the 80’s. He is a white secret agent mouse and has a trusty bumbling sidekick hampster assistant- Penfold.
Trousers: white chino trousers left over from a summer holiday.
Shoes: white trainers from a cheap shoe shop.
Sweater shirt: the only piece I couldn’t make and which did cost a £20. I found a local printers who were more than happy to print it on for me. I grabbed the DM logo online. I added the back logo which is technically out of character) at no extra cost.
Hands: A pair of Mickey mouse hands my wonderful Fiancee bought from EBay for me.
The mask: A local £1 shop were selling furry animal masks. I bought a meter of fake fur from our local textiles shop, plus an eye patch and some black felt.
I tried out a local costume maker to start it off, but I wasn’t impressed or happy with the end result. So my fiancee and myself spent a couple of nights covering the mask with the white fur and working out how I was going to see out if.
Gloves: £3.50 (P+p)
Total = £33 and a truly amazing costume.
