Simpsons Treehouse of Horrors III Costume #ElectronicHalloween

simpsons cosplay

The Simpsons goes spooky every Halloween with their Treehouse of Horrors episode. Their third installment featured a skeleton couch gag and includes the Evil Krusty doll that tries to kill Homer. Instructables user Mr. Noack was inspired by the opening and constructed an elaborate and wearable couch with the Simpsons for Halloween. He steps in as Evil Krusty and wears the entire couch with a harness. It’s detailed and incredibly creative.

He used blue foam to make the couch and made it look cushy and couch-like with cotton batting. He used wire to make the piping on the couch, and he found a huge piece of fabric to cover the couch at Value Village for only $6.99. He highly recommends using a thrift store for the fabric.

He added a cheap sound module to make the costume even cooler:

It was 15.99 retail, and arrived at my door in less that a week for approximately $25 shipped. I opted for the model with 4 buttons and speaker input. The software to load the WAV files in on their website and it is really straight forward and easy. I then scoured the internet for Evil Krusty sound clips. Let me point out some key features:
Because the module comes without a case, I decided to quickly model and 3D print a housing for the board, batteries and buttons.
I also purchased a pop-up speaker from thesource.ca for 12.99 on sale. This little speaker gives my sound effects some serious volume.
I cut out sections in the foam part of the couch to mount the module and speaker, making sure to allow access so that I can turn the speaker on and off. I also needed the ability to remove the module if necessary for changing batteries and loading sounds.

As for all those skeletons? He found affordable versions at Skeleton Factory. Seriously.

See how he wears the costume in this video:
