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.
