This year’s Halloween costume stemmed from a very obscure desire (Muppets are cool and I wanted one). 

About the time of last year’s New Years I had started watching shorts, both recent and very old, of Jim Henson’s Muppets. They are so funny. The ones I remember so fondly were the vegetable/fruit Muppets that were made to sing by getting hit with a mallet on the head.

Originally, I was going to do a movie-quality costume of Connor from Assassin’s Creed 3. There is nothing like a man in colonial garb. NOTHING. And a tomahawking BAMF on top of that? Please………the ultimate. I had everything needed but it boiled down to not having enough time to do all that I wanted, the way I wanted it.

So, PLAN B, a grocery bag containing Muppet vegetables and fruit because that made so much sense. I had so much damn fun making this and it was so damn cute. Going to make presents for friends out of the fruit and veggies.

Are the fruits and vedgies small or large?
kieshar (author)  SillyChily1 year ago

Um, more like medium to a little bigger. the cantalope is 7 inches in diameter and the tomato is 4-4.6 inches

This is the cutest, most detailed thing I've read here. Great job.

"blush" Thank you!
quick question: Do you think it might be too detailed or does it work as is?
No, it is not too detailed. My knee-jerk reaction was, "I could never duplicate that." Then I read the instructions and realized that you made it so that anyone could make it. It is adorable, you did a great job.
You rock! I love this idea.

Love the fruit and veggies idea instead of just a regular grocery bag

Thank you. To be honest it was all about them. I know I am dating myself but "what the hay". I remember a certain episode of the "Muppet Show" where there was all these cute veggies lined up and this guy behind them with a mallet. He would hit them on the head and of course they made an "ow" sound which in turn became the song they produced by getting hit on the head.
I think I might be in love with you.
