It’s hard not to crack up laughing at this costume. This over-sized moon head was inspired by an old campaign from McDonald’s featuring Mac Tonight with a guy with a huge moon head.
Glad to be bringing you the tutorial for this hilarious costume:
Cut, tape and glue together sides and back of cardboard.
To curve the cardboard easily, score it first.
Bottom is left open and will be partially covered with white felt.
Cover all sides with white fabric using hot glue.
Cut an opening to see through.
Create the nose using foam core.
Cut sun glass pieces using foam core. Mouth is white card stock/mat board with black marker around the edges.
Hot glue everything on and voila – a giant moon head.
Looks even more hilarious when a tiny boy is inside and all you can see are legs and feet.
Time and cost breakdown:
This costume took about 5hrs and $5 (white felt) to make.
Hope this inspires you to make something so good it makes you laugh out loud.
This costume was 1 of 4 space themed costumes we made for our family this year.
