Fun Homemade Costume Idea: Sam-I-Am from Green Eggs and Ham
I found a yellow maxi dress at Goodwill that I cut up the bottom of it to make it jagged. Then I threw on some white tights and some white snow boots that I had laying around. The hat was a s Smurfs hat I bought from a Halloween store, but just spray painted red (you can see it started to wear off by the end of the night). The green eggs and ham platter was made out of a piece of cardboard covered with tinfoil. The Green parts were made from the plant foam you can find cheap at Walmart, and the egg white was hot glue, then painted white after dried.
I carried around the sign that said “I am Sam” on one side and the other said “Sam I am”.
