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.
