This isn't really related so much to a gift, but I didn't know where to post and I'm starting to get desperate.  I'm helping to plan a retreat at my college, and my committee's job is to put together a big skit show for all those going on the retreat.  One of our skits calls for someone to be Kool-Aid Man...any ideas on how to create that costume?  We have limited time and funds but we want the costume to look as good as possible.  I'd love some advice, thanks!

here's a link to a picture if you forgot who he is!

When we made a giant egg sostume, we got one of those giant balloons and papermache'd around it. This would be similiar, except you would need to attach a handle and build up one edge to make it look like the lip of the pitcher. Red tights with foam around the legs and red tights for the arms might work.


Guess who's back?

i was mr. peanut one year for halloween.
if you go to your local hardware store you can find piping (we used white flexible but i know there has to be clear) and then you can stretch red fabric over the bottom half and vinyl over the top  half... then paint on the eyes and make it so you can put your arms and legs out.
its a pain in the ass, but it works.
