We decided to make this Homemade Mister Potato Head Child Halloween Costume because our son loved the toy. It was actually very easy to do.
I followed the pattern of a bumblebee and made the body of the potato. I then included an extra flap in the back and had false pieces hanging out, just like the real toy. I used felt and foam for the rest of the body parts.
I dressed my son in flesh-colored tights (MPH doesn’t have legs so I did not want them to stand out!). He also wore a white shirt and white gloves. He wore an oversized hat that I made out of a foam hat and extra foam. The hat covered his face but he had space to see and breathe. To top it off, I spray-painted his shoes with glossy paint.
The costume was a hit! We won a local contest and we were all so pleased.
