This homemade costume for couples entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest, and won 3rd place in the Best Couple Costume nomination!

A word from Froggi, the 'Professor Farnsworth and Mom' costume creator:

Presenting Professor Farnsworth (Kaveh) and Mom (Froggi), from Futurama!

I had so much fun crafting these costumes, to look as much as possible like the actual characters from Matt Groening's cartoon series.

Here's a little about the costume-making process:

Professor Farnsworth
Lab coat - Cartoon Farnsworth's lab coat doesn't have lapels, and lays more like a bathrobe. I modified a bathrobe pattern, and narrowed the front sides so it would drape exposing the belly. A small pillow makes Farnsworth's round stomach.
Head - I built the head prosthetic using newspaper and masking tape, then stretched a bald cap over the whole thing and blended the skin tones together with costume makeup. I was sure to add the liver spots!
Glasses - I cut 2-inch vinyl tubing at an angle to create the extra-deep look, and glued circles from translucent tupperware lids to the front to complete the lenses. The nose and ear hooks are bent from aluminum ground wire.
Makeup - I dabbed the lips and eyebrows with pale foundation, to reduce contrast.

Mom
Hair - I placed two polystyrene balls in a pair of pantyhose, which held them together and provided a way to secure them to my head. I sewed quilt batting over the surface, and attached the widow's peak and sideburns to my face with spirit gum.
Saggy boobs - I bound my chest with bandages, and below the bandage I hung tiny boobs made from a handful of rice in the toes of pantyhose.
Boots - I found a pair of stilettos at a secondhand store, and used them as the base for the boots. I attached long cones to the toes for the extra pointy look, and then sewed a thigh-high cover for the whole shoe from stretch-vinyl. The cuffs are folded over a thicker piece of upholstery vinyl.
Makeup - I drew on Mom's two signature eyelashes with eye pencil, and accentuated the upper lip with liner.
