the animals. Scoots the grey tabby, and Baloo the German shepherd went
to an animal costume contest as Red Riding Hood, and The Wolf in Grandmother's
Scoots was fully enclosed
in a cloth bag, with the paws being stuffed fakes. No scratching, no arguments.
Matthew called him the "living hand puppet."
Now for us. I went as the mushroom guy from Super Mario brothers, but as fate would have it, only one picture of me turned out. My big paper mache head broke halfway through the night too. Bad luck!
Here is Matthew as an entire Thanksgiving dinner. The reaction of people was unbelievable. Walking through the street party downtown with this 6'3" "Tableman", as people were calling him was simply amazing. About 50 strangers took pictures with him, fondled his food, and generally worshipped him. Watching the reactions was actually surreal. Have a look.
The turkey is paper
mache, the buns are real, and glued down, the gravy was just painted cardboard,
the potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, and cranberries
are all real food that I just put a silicone glaze over. (except the mashed
potatoes which just sort of hardened up all by themselves!)
We found a comfortable spot at one point and lit up all his candles! Romantic!
All the costumes on this page
were made by me, Terri. If you have questions on how to go about making
any of these costumes yourself or about the materials used, please feel
free to email me about it.
Other cool Halloween costumes I have seen on the Web and considered making for myself in the future.
