My family owns a Big Boy restaurant in Michigan. I found a mask of our mascot on Ebay and bought it to play a prank on one of the servers. Then I figured "what the hell, why not make the whole costume" And so I did!



The overalls are made up of 4 inch red and white squares cut from $5 bedsheets I found at walmart. I had to sew the patchwork because they don't make a red and white checkered fabric print. I looked everywhere! I used extra red from the sheet to do the straps. I added blue buttons to the straps to finish off the overalls. I hand painted the blue bands and text onto a white T-shirt and finished it off with my purchased mask.

I worked at the restaurant on Halloween and of course I wore the costume! It was a hit!

That is awesome. The time it takes to sew the squares together I am sure was time consuming. Bed sheets are the best way for yardage as well as fabricating the look you wants. Great job.

Nope, this one is much farther south. Smiley  Our franchise is located off 94 between Detroit and Kalamazoo.
