My 3-year old son is obsessed with Spongebob, so I decided to make him a Homemade Spongebob Squarepants Halloween Costume this year. What possessed me, I’ll never know, as I am not what most would consider “creative”. However, it all turned out pretty neat, we thought.
First, I cut and taped a regular brown shipping box to fit my son. Then I covered it in egg crate. The clothing and face were made from different colored felt pieces. Spongebob’s belt, freckles, and sock stripes were made from colored electrical tape. My son wore a white tee shirt and brown shorts underneath the box, and some black dress shoes. You can’t see it too well in this photo, but Spongebob’s nose is a cylindrical piece of egg crate which is 3-dimensional with the costume.
I don’t have a photo of them together just yet, but his 1 year old brother went as Plankton (also home-made). Too cute.
