What happens when you have a college student, and friends who work? You get people with no lives and plenty of spare time on their hands.

Well we found a couple Angry Birds costume online and we were appalled by the prices, and how simple they looked. I found a lot of one dimensional costume and a few that are actually round like the birds. We also enjoy feeling accomplished after building something, so we decided to take a crack at the birds and pig.

Step 1: Materials

For this costume, we actually bought more materials than what we had originally planned. As we were building we had to make significant changes to our design. Note, you might use less material than us because we made mistakes, but here is the list of what we used.

For Birds and Pig
  • 1 Exercise Ball (72inch circumference)
  • 3 Yellow poster boards
  • 5 Black poster boards
  • 6 White poster boards
  • Large Cardboard Box(Home depot about $1.49)
  • Newspaper
  • Cornstarch
  • Hot glue gun
  • 3/8" x 4 Dowels (From home depot)
  • 5 rolls of duct tape
  • Packaging Tape
  • Box Cutter
  • Hand blade
  • 2 1 gallon tub of lightweight spackle
  • 320 Grit sandpaper (We realize this was to fine, so you will be better of buying the 80 grit for sanding)
  • 80 grit sandpaper
  • Screen mesh
  • Paint brushes
  • 1 can of white spray paint (For bellies)
  • 2 cans of Candy Red Spray Paint
  • 2 cans of Green Apple Spray Paint
  • 2 cans of Yellow Spray Paint
  • 2-3 cans of Black spray paint (This was the cheap brand so it needed a lot of coats)
  • 3 cans of Lacquer (we accidentally bought an extra one, but more the merrier!)
  • Permanent Marker
  • Candy

Sling Shot (I do not remember the size of the PVC pipes i used, but i believe it was 3/4 inch) You can make the slingshot to the size of whatever you desire
  • PVC cement
  • 3 PVC pipes
  • 1 PVC Slip Tee
  • 2 45 degree S Elbow
  • Bungee cord

In all we spent over a hundred dollars, about $30-$40 per person, which comes out cheaper than the higher end angry bird costumes.
