My boyfriend and I love us some Futurama.
He also does a wicked Nibbler impersonation, and we'd noticed that no one else had ever done this costume. Shame, too, as Nibbler is insanely cute!! Grin
For reference, this is Nibbler:


I had a blast making it, which didn't take as long as one would think, and it was my first official try at a mascot-style head with a more slim-fit to it.
I also was able to get rid of a couple of odds and ends in my fabric boxes and propmaking boxes, like cream-coloured velvet scraps, tons of short-pile black faux fur, random foam pieces, and clear ornament globes.
Also, I seem to like drafting my own patterns these days, so that added to the fun...

He totally digs how the cape flies behind him when he runs.
Heh heh. It's just too funny to see him wearing this!

It's all handmade (literally, by hand. My sewing machine is a piece of junk, and has been for a long time), excluding the base for the shoes, which are recon-ed pink house slippers, and the undershirt which is a slim-fit black shirt.

Yay, Nibblonians!

(next up, he gets the Birthday hat, giant ball o' Dark Matter, and the Lord Nibbler suit to go with this!)

Heh heh...we tried to, but he was too tired from a mix of PBR, smoky bar, and carrying the head and cape around. On the upside, there are always conventions, since I've converted him to my nerdy sci-fi/fantasy ways..

Thanks for all the compliments! Cheesy

(and Happy Early Halloween!)
