I'd been working on my costume for weeks and it was really fun to see all the pieces together. I decided to dress up as Big Bird after seeing a costume online. It was hella money so I used its general concept and made it myself.
|I couldn't find yellow boas, so I dyed white ones. A fairly intense process, but it worked out in the end. I sent the picture to a ties-aren't-just-for-the-office friend who described it as a "Muppet Crime Scene." Amazing.|
|They looked really bad afterwards and I thought I'd ruined them (and threw a small tantrum)|
|A quick blow dry though and they came back to life -- yellow! The feathers went everywhere but it was worth it.|
|Next I painted styrofoam balls to look like Big Bird's eyes.|
|Some foam, wire and a glue gun can make almost anything!|
|I had to add a hairband as I got a little carried away with its size and there needed to be extra support.|
|Because I can't resist, the boys were a couple a weenies.|
