I love taking beloved characters and making them a little bit twisted for Halloween. I give you - Furious George!

It's the Man in The Yellow Hat after Curious George has rabies!

My wedding was two weeks before Halloween, so I had decided to buy the really cheap costume and dress it up. The hat had to be reinforced because it was cheap, so I added a bit of wire, but otherwise, the yellow tie, pants and shirt and hat were bought and then I proceeded to destroy them with rips and blood.

The bite marks on my face and arms are removable tattoos I made so they would stay on. The neck would was made from papier mache with toilet paper and then I painted it.   

The mesh eyeball covering is a piece of fabric I made like an eyepatch, and then blending the eyepatch strands into the bloody mess makeup I did for my face. The eyeball is hanging from a pipe cleaner strand that was painted and attached to the mesh and it didn't hinder my sight.

I bought a Curious George doll and then made fangs and claws out of paper and glue and then glued them to him. I made the shirt piece myself and painted the eyes on some metal pin covers and glued them to his face.

All in all, I had a great time going out with Furious George and here are some action shots and close ups!

My gosh! Did you sleep??? With wedding, and all. Holy cow! Fine job, and looks like you had fun. I loved CG as a child. Very creative costume. And love the little doll, too. He made the outfit special. And something fun to pass around at the party? I love to bring "toys" where I go, too. People can be silly that way, and get away with adult kindergarten!  Cheesy

Furious George...I am DYING!   Cheesy  That is just too funny and too clever and, as others have stated, obviously due to your lack of sleep.  I adore puns (especially bad ones) and this just made my week!  Wish I'd thought of it!
