This homemade Towelie costume was a hit!
I first started out with 3 yards of blue fabric (there were leftovers). Next i got towelish looking white stripes at the craft store, 2 on bottom and 2 on top. Black and white felt was then used for the eyes and mouth. I cut out the mouth on the blur fabric and hot glued the black felt over it (top only so you can drink beer or punch :).
Then for the eyes I got black mesh and hot glued the black felt around it so you can still see. To give shape of the Towelie I used a straight piece of Styrofoam (2×2 inch) and sewed it into the top so it could not fall out. Left the arm holes open and voila! My boyfriend was famous that night! You’ll drive a lot of attention especially in college!
