Threads Halloween Costume Contest 2010

A Very Grouchy Oscar

What a face!  I started with Oscar's head - the hardest part to get right and still be workable for the wearer.

Even though my children are all adults, they still expect something wonderful to wear every halloween!  This costume was made for my 6’4″ son (it made him almost 7′ tall!).  It all began when I found the wonderfully awful green fur in a little fabric shop – it just called out to become Oscar.  The crinkled silver metalic fabric was perfect for his can- lightweight and flexible so he could sit.  The wearer looks out under the chin of this costume and there are four pieces in all: the  head, the torso (jacket), the legs (pants with attached boots) and the can (garden hose rings top and bottom to give it shape, held up with suspenders).  It was a big hit, but my son did say that it may be the hottest costume I have created so far!
