Dr. Zoidberg of Futurama Costume! :)

(thank you for the direction into the forums! haha) :D :D :D



I didn't even know who Zoidberg was until my boyfriend told me that he was going to be HIM for halloween, right after we met haha. SO, I was wondering how he was going to do it and I had a few ideas...

I ordered a Lab Coat from AllHeart.com or something like that, and had it embroidered with "Dr. Zoidberg". For the Claws, he bought a hot glue gun and some felt and I was kinda puzzled as to how to make them .. cute/realistic/wearable, just make sure to have good scissors, stack the felt 2 at a time and wisely cut so that the 2 pieces match up. I used elastic to keep them on his wrist and stuffed them with polyester fill, to make them more functional. For the FACE...lol..we lucked out. Tripped over a bart simpson mask at Target and we ended up making the eyes into the shape of goggles, leaving tabs on the side for elastic attachment to hold them onto his head. The "mouth fingers" were a pair of women's gloves. (I cut the thumb off and hand sewed it shut and then took the part and attached it to ITSELF in the back, behind the mask, also stuffed the fingers a little. We then painted his head with some cream makeup from.. a halloween store ($1.50) and it goes a long way. You can cover the elastic with it too, but be careful not to dye your eyes red unless you are going to go as Zoidberg with PINKEYE. lol.

As he would say "bwoo bwoo bwoo bwoo bwoo!"

Who has the upper claw now!?
Once again, the conservative, sandwich-heavy portfolio pays off for the hungry investor.
By the way, i took the liberty of fertilizing your caviar.

. That is GREAT! (Dr Z is one of my favorite cartoon characters)
.
. I think his "bwoo bwoo bwoo bwoo bwoo!" is copied from The Three Stooges. When Curly does it, it sounds a little more like "whoop whoop whoop whoop whoop." If you like physical comedy, the Stooges are great.
