Oh these costumes are great.  LOL!  Those giant ones are amazing.  I would never have thought to do something like that.  Do you have a background in puppetry?

No, I got all my inspiration from the internet.  This site has step by step instructions for backpack puppets: http://www.gis.net/~puppetco/index.html  but there are LOTS of pictures if you do a search on giant puppets. (WHO KNEW?! I had no idea...)  They're surprisingly light.  I want to make a scary one for this year but  my kids are cooking up a few things involving those dollar store laundry baskets that they were wearnig around on their heads...
Thanks for looking!

2/18/12 - I no longer have the directions for wrapped pens, I lost them several years ago. To obtain them for yourself, do like I did, contact DMC threads directly and ask for them.

There are actually pieces of thick foam on the front of his thigh and then the back of his calf. His feet are actually flat on the floor, even though they don't look like it. He made the hooves out of PVC and bondo, I think.

Oh! And the horns are superglued directly to his forehead....I was stunned when he did that.

He's pretty crafty.

This year he's doing a skeleton Elvis to go with my Frida.

Whoa!  I bet he scared a few kids with that costume...the legs and hooves look so REAL and it hurts to think of pulling off those horns,  but what dedication! Can't wait to see your elvis and Frida.

Actually, the kids loved it! We have a bunch come back to our house a second time and stand on the porch and giggle at him.

The horns just popped right off...didn't leave a mark or anything. If I had done that it would have peeled off layers of skin.
