Gonzo the Great - Homemade costumes for kids

Gonzo from the Muppets

Costume type:  Costumes for Kids
Categories:Halloween Costumes, Movie and TV Show Costumes

This homemade costume for kids entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Sharon, the 'Gonzo' costume creator:

I grew up watching the muppets and I'm so excited about the new movie. To make this costume,I simply took a football helmet and hot glued pieces of foam to it to build it up. I shaped the nose out of crumpled up newspaper wrapped in duct tape and hot glued it to the helmet. I cover it with blue felt and shaped the mouth with the foam and felt as well. I then covered the rest of the helmet with blue fur. For the eyes, I cut about 1/3 off of the back of a styrofoam ball and covered it with white, yellow, and a little bit of brown fleece. They were then hot glued to the helmet.

As a finishing touch, I glued some feathers to the back crown of the head. For his attire, I wore a vintage, polyester suit along with one of my dad's old bowties. (Gonzo is always such a snazzy dresser). I also made some hands out of the blue fur and safety pinned them to the suit.

My favorite muppet. Where's his girlfriend, Camilla?
