waldorf and statler

Waldorf and Statler, they're not half bad, but then again, they're not half good either.

This year, we created the two crumudgeons that sit stage left on ‘The Muppet Show’, Waldorf and Statler. To do this, we found couch cushions (and vinyl) that somebody was going to trash, spent a total of $16 on faux fur and polar fleece, used things from around the house (for example; glue, thread, and magnets for the eyes). Aside from that we shaped, sewed, affixed, and designed everything entirely on our own without the help of any machine or professional (home made and hand made!!!). Everything, including the balcony, took about a month to create.

    Are these costumes that someone can wear or are they more like halloween decorations?

    Kmegamom........Thanks for viewing my submission and questioning it's validity. Actually, YES...these are wearable costumes. We made them out of old couch cushions, magnets, and things around the house. The polar fleece was purchased, but we spend less than thirty dollars to make everything. Also, the curtain was put up for the photo, it wasn't carried with us while celebrating Halloween. The balcony however, was! It's wrapped around a walker...making it light weight and mobile. Hope that helps you understand that these are definitely not decorations!

    Creative and just the right kind of retro! If I ever needed an idea of what to be halloween, THIS IS IT! Awesome idea guys!

    By far, the most effort, creativity and enthusiasm I've seen toward a halloween costume in a while. These guys take the cake - no doubt!!

    Such an original and creative idea. I wish I would have thought of it! However, even if I did I wouldn't have been able to nail it like these guys did! Can't believe it's mostly scraps from around the house, looks like high quality work! Love it.
