Ohh yeeahhh! Behold the koolest Halloween costume ever built, Kool Aid Man! I initially looked online to buy one but I couldn’t find it anywhere. So I had to resort to Plan B, build it. So here you have it. Here’s how I made it.

Materials used:

  • Hula Hoops
  • Cardboard
  • zip ties
  • tape
  • foam spray
  • joint compound
  • red & white paint
  • wire mesh
  • plastic jug
  • LEDs
  • Red long sleeve shirt
  • red sweat pants
  • red socks, and red gloves

The hardest part of the costume is to shape it to your body height and size. I knew I couldn’t simply make holes in Kool Aid’s mans face so I had to make sure my head was just high enough for me to peek out from the top. To disguise my head, I came up with ice cubes which were made out of a few boxes. I cut a hole and placed wire mesh so I can’t paint over it. The clothes I bought on Amazon. In total, I think I spent a little over $100. There’s a bunch of stuff that I bought that I didn’t return so I’ll be heading to the hardware store soon to return it.
