Coolest Homemade South Park “The Coon” Halloween Costume Idea

My Boyfriend didn’t want to dress up this year, and after 6 store trips he still wouldn’t pick a costume. Finally I told him to tell me what he wanted to be and I would make him his costume. His eyes lit up with delight as he brought up the picture of “The Coon.” So, I studied the picture and off we went.

A plain black mask, hot glue, felt, construction paper, a red plastic tablecloth, store bought Nerf darts, store bought cat ears and tail, silver hair paint, fake rubber fingernails, and a fake mustache is all that was needed!

I cut out brown, grey, and black felt to make the raccoon face and glued them to the plain black mask. A fake mustache was turned upside down and glued to the top to look like the fuzzy eyebrows.

I cut felt in a white circle and glued it to a plain black sweatshirt and also onto the red plastic table cloth that I cut to be a cape. Then I cut the “C” in grey and black felt and glued it onto the white circle.

Cut the tips off the Nerf darts and taped them with electrical tape to a belt.

Added yellow construction paper belt buckle and cape buttons.

Finished the costume off with ears and a tailed (stripped with the silver hair paint to look like a raccoons).

The COON was born.

Some people who don’t watch the show had no idea who he was. The people who watched South Park though all stopped in their tracks when they seen him. It was hilarious to hear people yell “Look it’s the COOOOOON” from across the room.

  1. I was thinking about being the coon for halloween as well, but I can’t figure out how to make the mask. Can you explain how you exactly did it? Thanks!

  2. I love it! Idc if my friends ask me what i am,or if they judge me cuz i’m a girl, i am going to wear that costume! ?.? but first imma make it. Hah thank you, thank you! Thx soooooooooo much :)

  3. I have been wanting to make a Coon cosplay for ages. I had no idea of how I was going to do it, than… I found this. Thanks brah~

  4. Im being the Coon for Halloween and your tips helped soo much. I was lucky enough to find raccoon ears and tails together, but everything else I had to piece together. So excited to wear it! Can’t wait to see it when it is all done.

  5. 1- I would love to sell it to you but after a night or two in Atlantic City the Coon costume has seen better days. Sorry bro, I don’t even think we have all the pieces.

    2- The claws were rubber fingers nails (prob made for a witch costume) and the nails came silver. We got lucky.

    3- The mask was a plain black mask. I first cut and covered it with brown felt. Them I elaborated on it by cutting the design of racoon eyes out of grey felt and just hot gluing it on top (The felt extended past the original mask to give it the pointy sides). Finally a Mario style mustache was flipped over and glued upside down on top. That gave it the bushy look. hope that helps!!
