Beaker from the Muppets
|Costume type:||Costumes for Adults|
This homemade costume for adults entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.
I rolled up a large piece of foam and glued the ends together to make the cylinder. I made the eyes out of cut styrofoam balls that were about 1/3 cut to make a flat side to glue to the head. The nose is made of newspaper wrapped in duct tape covered in red fleece. For his hair, I cut the hair off of an old clown mask that we had and glued it to the front top of the cylinder. I bought two old oxford shirts at the thrift store and buttoned them together in the back and hot glued the shirts to the cylinder. I then put on an old lab coat, cuffed pants, and striped socks.
