This homemade costume for families entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Lori, the 'Sponge Bob & Friends' costume creator:

Our family Trick or Treats for the local Food Pantry & I hand make our costumes every year. This year my 1 daughter was Sponge Bob, my other daughter was Patrick, I was Mr. Crab & we had our 1 cat dressed as Gary the snail who went with us as we collected. (I even had the shows theme song playing as we walked around) My daughter loved this show growing up & really wanted to do these. I tried to make them as detailed as possible to the actual characters. I made all of our costumes out of foam & light fleece fabric. I was able to get giant googly eyes for 2 of the characters & made the other one(crab)

MR. CRAB......I made the whole body of thin foam w/light fleece fabric, I used a black leather type trim for belt & gold stretchable sequence for buckle & glued them. I cut foam poster board glued them together & added yellow & black felt for the eyes, red felt for lashes & wrapped red fabrics to the backside, then black pipe cleaners around the eyes made slits on top of head poked thru & hot glued until sturdy. As for claws I used red fabric cut in claw shape attached black felt in the middle opening, stuffer with fiber fill, sewed shut & then sewed on red gloves. teeth were made from jewelry.

PATRICK.....I made the whole body of thin foam w/light fleece fabric, I made it as 2 pieces & used Velcro to attach bathing suit & legs to the torso. I added purple fabric as eye lids, glued black pipe cleaners around eyes & used black felt for eye brows.

SPONGE BOB........I made the whole body of thin foam w/light fleece fabric, I opened the googly eyes to change eye color to blue & put a black pupil (made of felt) I also used black felt for eye lashes & black pipe cleaners around the eyes for effect. I sculpted his nose from foam & put material on it, same for his lips & hot glued on.

We collected about a full car load of food for the pantry & made a lot of families happy.
