"Breakfast Princess" 2013 - From one of my favorite animated television shows, Adventure Time. I didn't have enough time to construct the bacon belt, but at least I got one slice done to serve as my bacon crown. I constructed the entire costume out of sheet foam and felt.

"Behemoth" 2011, 2012 - With this costume I attempted to replicate a Muppet monster named Behemoth, who is one of the lesser known full-body Muppets.
H Favorite
I focused on creating Behemoth's head, as the complete costume would be far too warm. Cameo by my friend Eric as the Tin Man.

"Zombie Gaga" 2010 - I jumped on the Gaga trend this year and based my costume on what is commonly referred to as Lady Gaga's "Red Riding Hood" outfit. I paid close attention to the details of the belt and gold chain, and created the hood out of silk charmeuse.

"Child Attacked by Monsters Under the Bed" 2009 - For Halloween 2009, I wanted to be a little girl who was getting attacked by monsters, as though her own stuffed animals had turned against her, emerged from under her bed, or come alive from a children's book. To craft them I turned existing plush animals inside-out, stuffed and sealed them, added and subtracted appendages, and painted and decorated them with felt. The red yarn tops off the bloody attack.

Monster 1 - The face design for this monster was inspired by another plush monster, Jayson Thiessen's "Inko", which I really admired. The original stuffed animal was a cat.
H Favorite
Monster 5 - I added horns and tail to this teddy bear. I wanted this one to have creepy, zombie eyes so I added white pupils.
H Favorite
Monster 2 - This plush was originally a rabbit. I swapped out the ears for other pieces with wire in them so I could manipulate the eyes. The wings were crafted from the dog ears of another stuffed animal.
H Favorite
Monster 3 - I specifically looked for a stuffed animal with parts I could add to one of my monsters for tentacles.

Monster 4 - Here is my Cyclops, with extra legs for good measure.

"Yip Yip Martian" 2008 - My costume is based on the wonderful Yip Yip Martians from Sesame Street, pictured below.

"The Yello Dello" 2007 - Being a long-time fan of the cartoon website www.homestarrunner.com I chose to make a costume that would get me featured in the cartoon's annual "Strongbad Costume Commentary". The top photo is a screen shot of my appearance on the website, and the bottom image is my costume inspiration, the character The Yello Dello.
