inspired. want to be skeletor.
let’s round up the whole gang. i wish i had more friends who want to look gross and disgusting come halloween
in case you’re interested, there are so many characters: take your pick
how about this guy?
My coworkers were all pointing at me laughing and speaking in Spanish. I was like wtf guys..? and they were like “you remind us of someone but if we told you you would be mad”… so… it turns out to be this girl on some show. every spanish speaking person seems to have watched this show before. Anyways, I decided to embrace it. Totally dressing like this to work tomorrow and saying to everyone “What? I have no idea what you mean cuz I don’t look like her at all??”
This is one of those dorky costumes you wear to conventions.
Finn is super easy – the only part that takes any sort of skill is the backpack which can of course be accomplished via funtimes with felt. Jake is a challenge if you don’t want to make a full on furry costume. Which is why the Jake glasses we made were a real accomplishment. so good i think cartoon network will steal the idea for Jake merch.
I saw 4 other Finns, 1 other Jake and 2 Bubblegum Princesses at the Weho street thingy. No ice kings though… This ice king I found on the internet is the best!
Mostly kids 5-10 yrs old and nerds recognized us. They did so by saying either “Adventure Time!” or “what time is it?”. I would say 90% of people didn’t know who we were and thought we were “some pokemon” or “doggie!”.
When I saw this movie a year ago… the moment I laid eyes on Ash… I knew I wanted to be him.
1) white beanie with a stuffed sock sewn on top. it’s pretty hard to find a white sock with red toes so you pretty much have to paint one. i didn’t have red paint so i just used felt. i had a shitload of felt. I didn’t want to paint the stripes around the neck either so I made a collar with leftover sock tops (see below)
2) ears – now you can make this… but you can also just buy some on etsy for cheap. that’s what i did.
3) awesome wool cardigan I found at goodwill with “A” button made with felt
4) American Apparel sweatpants
5) socks from skatersocks.com. In case you were wondering if Ash wears flip flops he does not but I had to wear them when I went out because I didn’t want to get the socks all nasty
6) tail – don’t call animal rights but i bought a real fox tail at the fair in Germany. According to the movie, foxes don’t die when their tails get cut off. They live long and prosper and have quality time with their family and friends haha.
7) towel cape – you actually have to cut up the towel to make it wrap around your neck.
8) Dried Squab Giblets made with Cinnamon Toasted Crunch Cereal box. Should have printed the image on a colored printed for better effect. oh well.
Rion didn’t have a costume so last minute he wanted to be Mr Fox. With some planning, the easiest way is of course to buy matching corduroy jacket and pants. With zero planning: discount corduroy fabric x determination to make a tailored suit from scratch in a couple of hours. We didn’t get to the party until 11pm because the suit took 4 hours (with no help from me) and we didn’t stay at the party long because the suit held together for a little over an hour before it started to rip in all sorts of places (no thanks to drunk douchebag at party).
Friends were Calvin and Hobbes. Adorable eh?
Seymour + Audrey II!
stolen from christine nguyen’s facebook…
chop chop master onion! (christine made this!)
marc is the alarm from dr. klahn’s fortress in Fistful of Yen. You don’t need to see the movie to appreciate his execution.

DO IT YOURSELF costumes are the way to go. doesn’t have to be perfect, just need a great idea.
wow. i’m impressed
ASIMO COSTUME FOR SALE!!!! only $400!!!
i think the less realistic $400 one is better than this guy’s
knew the McDonald’s gang since I was a wee kid (there’s me in the black dress and next my first “boyfriend” in the white jacket)…
A lot of people are scared of clowns and Ronald is among the scarier ones… that doesn’t stop me from wanting to be him… esp after seeing Miss McDonald do it so well…
i’ve also seen people do the fast food gang thing for halloween and it seems like such a good idea until you try to get it all together… here are some folks who deserve honorable mention:
awwww….. the chicken is a nice touch. so is the baby. that’s totally not fair. babies in anything will get way more attention than adults.
a pair of 3-D glasses (nicolelindner from etsy)…
a bag of popcorn (nicolelindner from etsy)…
a letter (daydream nation modeled by susie bubble)…
a bunch of post-its…
