Some friends and I wanted to do an awesome group costume this year- the winning idea was the Muppets! My Beaker costume is entirely homemade from supplies I found at thrift and dollar stores. I already had the clothes and the lab coat from school. The head base is just a big piece of poster board rolled up. I hot-glued on big craft styrofoam balls for eyes, and cut the nose out of a piece of foam then wrapped it in orange craft felt. The hair is a couple of orange plastic leis. The whole thing can be made for under $10 and we were the hit of the party! Everyone was coming up asking if they could have their picture taken with me all night!
