This homemade costume for women entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Amanda, the 'Reptar' costume creator:

I am wearing this lovely rugrats Reptar costume that is handmade from teeth to tail. In whole the project took me 25-30 hours of fun creativity. I came up with the idea after having made some muppet-like puppets for a class. I molded the teeth out of glow-in-the-dark, polymer clay, while most of the rest is made out of fleece and other scrap fabrics. I designed the head and tail myself and used a jumpsuit pattern for the body piece. I also carried around a portable ipod speakers in an added pocket which played the Rugrats theme song. Most of the costume is sewn though hot glue was used for some of the attachments.

Hey I was interested in buying this costume. If you would like to sell it how much would you price it as. Thanks you.

I put a lot of time into this and the seams are not wonderfully finished. I wouldn't be able to sell it for less than $250 and I don't know if the quality Is really worth that much.

Hi Amanda,

Did you ever end up selling this costume? I'd be happy to pay what you're asking for it in the above comment. Let me know!

I have decided against selling it, but I would consider making another. I would need at least a month to make it. Let me know if you are still interested.

Thanks so much for your response. I am still interested. Could you send me an email so we can discuss this further? Thank you.

I made one last year after remodeling the design a bit with materials and 40 hours labor, I sell them for $950 shipping. I am in the middle of two projects now. I wouldn't be able to do any more by Halloween.

Hello Amanda,

My dance/step team will be competing at the National Competition in the next three weeks. We will be doing a Rugrats theme as that is what the students chose to do.
We already have Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil and even Angelica.

REPTAR would help us take home the 1st place trophy for sure. I understand if you don't want to sell it. However, would you mind renting it to my step team for a week? Just to practice and use it for our competition.

Please let me know. I looo forward to hearing from you.

I wish I had your talent. I would definitely make myself a Reptar onesie. Mine would be the purple version.
