The theme is Cartoon charaters/ Kids shows. We couldn’t resist these two classics, but didn’t like any of the ones available online.
Time to get creative and make our Homemade Bert and Ernie Halloween Costumes.
My friend and I carved the heads from foam (the same foam in car seats). Wigs were glued on along with eyes and the nose. After that felt was sewn in place over the foam. I even stitched gloves out of felt. A few rolls of coloured duct tape later and I had a sweater. It was very important that we could see and breath and drink.
A actually learnt a lot about sewing while making this costume. My wife made a fragile rock costume that looks great also. This is a costume that I will wear at my kids birthday parties. If Sesame Street is popular anymore? Heck I’ll wear it anyway.
Hope you like it!
