Evil Krusty vs. Simpson Couch - Treehouse of Horrors III
|Costume type:||Costumes for Adults|
This homemade costume for adults entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Jay, the 'Evil Krusty vs. Simpson Couch' costume creator:
My costume is based on the Simpsons Treehouse of Horrors Episode from 1992. The episode opens with the skeleton couch gag and features the Evil Krusty doll that Homer buys Bart for his birthday. My brother gave me the idea when we were driving home from last year's Halloween party.
The couch is made from blue insulation foam. It's very light, but it's on wheels because of it's awkward size. The mask was purchased but re-painted to look like Krusty. The skeleton were purchased online, but the skulls were painstakingly carved from blue foam and coated with a mix of latex primer and drywall compound to provide a base for spray paint.
All of the elements were compiled, built and assembled in roughly 2 months. The costume is so great for freaking people out because people assume that it's a decoration. I stay perfectly still until the last moment. Only the slightest movement is needed to make people jump.
I believe that the true challenge of Halloween is making a costume that has never been done before.
