after seeing smarmyclothes mayor mccheese costume (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60755.0
) 3 years ago, i've been DYING to make it. this year, my boyfriend agreed to be the mayor.
couch cushions (3)
felt for the cheese and eyes
styrofoam balls for the cheeks and eyebrows
styrofoam cones for the nose
fabric and cardboard for the hat
spray paint - i used flat paint and this textured stuff for the bun. you know, to make it more bun-like.
i thrifted the purple womens suit and glued ribbon stripes on. the sash is just scrap fabric i had laying around that i painted "mayor" on.
mayor was a little inappropriate during the night...
