I’ve always admired the character “Nanny” from “The Muppet Babies”. She was the wise character with the striped stockings who always came in to snap those Muppet babies back to reality. The best part about her was you never were permitted to see above her knee. So mysterious and stoic.
This year I convinced my buddy to be the other leg. I made both costumes with green, white and purple fabric, about 50 hot glue sticks and the shoes are made of thick yoga mats that I cut up. I also purchased a cheap shoe and cut it up for a pattern. I drew an enlargement and patterned it on the yoga foam. It took about 2 weeks and six hot glue burns to complete the costumes but it certainly did not disappoint! It was also quite the commitment because those costumes were pretty hot to be in all night.
If I had to do anything differently on this Homemade Nanny from The Muppet Babies Couple Costume, I think I would have installed a fan at the top of the sock so we have some kind of built in cooling system. It was so worth it though!
