My boyfriend is a drummer and a fan of the Muppet’s Animal. He needed a costume for a Halloween show. We found nothing in stores, so I decided to create a mask of my own. The biggest hurdle was that he needed to be able to see out of the costume to play the drums. An engineering masterpiece was created!
This Muppets animal costume took 2 weeks to create using everything from heater hose, to dental floss to sew it all together. He can see out of the mouth, but nobody can see him. It’s light weight and breathable. He even had a hand in painting the eyes! Materials cost less than $60!
Then I needed a costume. I needed to be a book character for our work party, so I decided to be Thing 1 from Dr. Seus. I created the wig from a pair of fuzzy slippers! This project cost less than $20 for materials and only a few days to create. It was so much fun!
