Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem rocked The Muppet Show. I bet they take the party anywhere they go. Coolest Homemade Costumes user Peter built the entire band from Janice to Animal for Halloween, and he and his muppet friends were a hit. He used pretty simple materials and techniques to assemble the costume and seeing how easy it was has me wanting to make a muppet.
I made the heads by paper macheing balloons for the heads, stretching fleece over the heads, and adding fake fur, felt, feathers, and foam-materials that all start with F.
To save money on fleece, I bought those $5.00 micro fleece blankets instead of paying $8.00/m at the fabric store. I used the Dollar Store for materials as much as I could, such as Zoot’s over sized sunglasses, and Animals eye’s which are painted Christmas balls. There were thing that I could not find in town so I used eBay for Zoot’s blue hair, and the ostrich feather for Animal, and Sgt. Floyd Peppers stash. The ostrich feather was the most expensive material @$5.00/ft for ostrich fringe.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
