Mr. Peanut 2011
|Costume type:||Costumes for Adults|
This homemade costume for adults entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.
I am really into making iconic figures for my Halloween costumes. After seeing the claymation videos of the "new" Mr. Peanut, I knew I had to be him. I (Steve) am inside the suit. The costume took me 5 days to make and is constructed entirely out of foam. The main armature and structure is made of camping foam, and is later covered by a veneer craft foam. I had to sew a suit (which was the most difficult)to fit around the body. The suit covers a parting line where the head and body separates at. After stepping into the lower shell, the body is pulled up and capped by the head. The viewing window is Mr. Peanut's mouth, being a 4x2'' smile. I had a great time with this one, and hope you enjoy it as well!
