A word from Amber, the 'Russell & Kevin from Up' costume creator:
The movie Up! is one of mine and my boyfriend Cody's favorites so it was a perfect idea for a costume. For the Russell costume I purchased a plain yellow shirt from Academy and orange foam for the flag and badges. I also used an old hat and green t-shirt from around the house. I cut 2 orange triangles from the foam and painted the circle with the wilderness explorer emblem on each side. I them got an old wire hanger and hot glued the two triangle pieces together for the flag and stuck that into the zipper of an old backpack. I painted the old hat yellow and cut another wilderness explorer emblem out of the foam and hot glued it to the hat. Last I cut a sash out of the old green t-shirt and cut circles out of the foam and painted them many colors and glued them to the sash. For the Kevin(snipe) costume I chose to make a colorful tutu. I purchase yellow, red, orange, purple, and blue tulle from hobby lobby and attached to a strip of elastic. I purchased a cheap navy tank top and glued yellow and blue feathers to it. I also used an old headband to hot glue 5 blue pipe cleaners to and them glued feathers to those. I wore some black leggings under the tutu and some sparkly flats. I wore blue feather earrings I already owned, and I bought a yellow boa at hobby lobby and cut it in half and tied each piece around my wrists for extra detail. Total cost for both costumes was about $40 because I already had a lot of the things I needed laying around the house.
