Cuphead was recently released. The retro-looking game has already inspired several pieces of fan art, and I have a hunch it will be a popular choice for Halloween. As Redditor kupkakekhaos proves, you can pull a quick costume version of Cuphead himself together using supplies mostly acquired from the Dollar Tree. That’s what they did for their nine year old son. They said:
Yes! Incredibly easy! Used a dollar store hamper with poster board taped around it. Them just cut and super glued felt on. For the straw just rolled up more of the poster board with foam around and that’s it! You can find the gloves in child and adult sizes at party city.
