This homemade costume for boys entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Steve, the 'Plants vs Zombies Chomper' costume creator:

My son, JJ (9), is wearing this hand made Chomper costume based on the character from the Plants vs Zombies mobile game.

The head was made out of paper mache (5layers) using an oversized beach ball which was then deflated and pulled out. A small section was then cut out and a pool noodle was inserted to make the lips. The teeth and spikes were cut out of foam sheets and hot glued. The leaves around the base of the head were cut from foam sheets and painted green. This ended being a very light-weight mask (just over 3 lbs)

BODY (only item not custom made)
Lycra bodysuit purchased at costume shop.

The leaves around the ankles were cut from foam sheets and spray painted neon green.
