The NEW Mr. Peanut - Homemade costumes for adults

Mr. Peanut 2011

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

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

A word from Stephen, the 'Mr. Peanut' costume creator:

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!

Hi!
Was wondering if you were still renting the costume and for how much. I'm in Los Angeles.

I would love to rent this suit as my daughter just got a job with Kraft as a Peanutter. Driving across the country in a peanut moble. I would love to rent this suit for her graduation party from college, which is May 18, 2013. We live in PA. We do have a friend in Maryland who can pick it up. Where are you in Maryland and how much would you charge?

I really want to make this for a costume contest this year... Can you give me the exact instructions??? Please!

Thank you for all the interests! Unfortunately, I cannot rent out my costumes, being that that they usually got through wear and tear during my one time usage. I would be interested in selling as is. All my costumes are constructed from various foams and soft good materials. Unfortunately, I do not have instructions to build these, being that I make them up as I go. Again, thank you for all the interests!

Hi, I'm confused about how you used foam. Do you 'unstuff' the foam? How do you get it so that you can fit inside of it and slip inside? Sorry, does my question make sense to you? I'm not sure how to say what I mean haha

Hi Stephen,
I'd like to inquire about the cost of this costume, if you are still interested in selling. I'm in New York. Thanks!

Hey everyone,

Michelle, to answer your question: The foam is actually a two part process. The main shape is built from camping mat foam. This can be bought from Walmart for $10. After the shape is made, I laminate the form with EVA craft foam from Michaels. I usually attach this with super 77 and hot glue. For contours, I hit the foam lightly with a heat gun. I will soon put up a link to my process on FB for anyone to follow.

Kaela, Please contact me at 240 426 0797. Thank you!
