2008 - Drunk Monkey
I made this whole suit, lots and lots of hot glue and burnt fingertips went into this costume!
In case you are wondering, I did succeed in actualizing the drunk part of the costume.
Everything was handcrafted, even the cigar (its was a grocery bag!)
2009 - Reverse Mermaid
This one was a real crack-up! I was a reverse mermaid, fish up top--woman on the bottom!
I stood about 7 feet tall in the heels and head. It was hilarious! Can you guess what my BF is there in the back? I made that one too...it was a last minute thing. Kinda un-PC but funny none the less!
Ok, give up? He's a turd burglar...ewwwww, lol!
Whew boy was it hot in there, but it was worth it...I WON 1st place!!
Now...are ya ready to see this years effort?
First you need to know about the movie UP, by Disney/Pixar .
I decided to be the OLD MAN, Carl Frederickson!
It took a lot of paper mache, hot glue, and paint and about 10 hours of work in all...
Guess what? I WON FIRST PLACE!!! Lets celebrate with a little dancin'! (thanks Jeff for the video!)
Pretty cool huh?! I can't wait till next year!
