Even before I was ever pregnant I had always said I wanted to dress our family up as Aqua Teen Hunger Force for Halloween. I figured I'd better do it this year because I probably wont be able to decide what my son will be next year.
I had no problem finding a Frylock & Master Shake costume for my husband and I online (I wasn't about to make 4 costumes this year, I also made a toddler size Sally dress for a friends daughter). I knew I would have to make a Meatwad costume for my son so I just used a pattern for a pumpkin costume to get the basic shape. For the eyes & mouth I just bought 1 sheet of white craft felt & 2 sheets of black & cut them out freehand. I looked at one of our DVD covers to get the shapes right. It was really quite easy. The black outlines behind the eyes are actually larger than the whites of the eyes. They're sewn together at the edge of the white part with an applique stitch. I can provide a close up photo if anyone needs it Smiley

What do you think?

Getting a decent family photo was difficult and my hair ended up a mess because I forgot a hair tie...oopsie!

My lil man in hes "Bee-ball Cosoom" as he calls it.

As soon as I have pics from my friend I'll post some pics of the toddler size Sally of Nightmare Before Christmas dress I mentioned before Smiley

Thanks for looking!

He's so cute!  The Meatwad face is perfect also.
