Coolest Sesame Street Costumes

The costumes you see here were NOT brought to you by Sesame Street. I, being a big beautiful woman, decided on a Big Bird costume. My husband was supposed to be Oscar, but then tried on my son’s Elmo costume and I died laughing, so we went with that idea, adding onto his costume in a number of ways.

My costume was entirely hand made using a bustier – all the feather boas and the bustier were hand dyed and dried. The boas were individually hand sewn onto the bustier and onto a knit toque (a Canadian winter hat), with orange fishnets and yellow and orange birkenstocks my “look” was complete.

My husband has squeezed into our 5 year olds’ Elmo costume – has orange face paint and “tickle me” written on his tummy, an Elmo doll stuffed in his orange shorts and Elmo shoe covers made from our little boy’s outgrown slippers.
