Step 1: Getting Started - Materials

Picture of Getting Started - Materials

You will need the following items for this costume:
  • 1" thick flexible foam - about 1 roll of 2' x 4' (shoes and head)
  • 3'x3' blue felt (bottom line on shoes)
  • 2'x4' red fabric (shirt)
  • 1 sheet of 1/4" thick flexible foam (for star on shirt)
  • 1 collapsible laundry hamper (for the body, I used the Household Essentials Pop-Up Spring Hamper-Mesh from Target)
  • Elastic band (for shirt neck and to keep the shoes on)
  • 1 4x8' sheet of stiff blue insulation foam (for head frame)
  • 1 2x5' sheet of white flannel (for the final layer on the head)
  • Stiff cardboard/cardstock (to stiffen the bill on the cap)
  • 1/4" thick black foam (for eyes)
  • Blue pipe cleaner (for propeller)
  • White tights (legs)
  • Hot Glue
  • Super Glue
  • yarn
  • staples
  • pins
Equipment:
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Sewing Machine
  • Scissors
  • Exacto knife
  • staple gun
Optional:  mp3 player with portable speaker for sound effects (which can be downloaded from the Homestar Wiki page)

I couldn't fit all of these items into a single picture, so please enjoy this Homestar-o-Lantern picture instead:

Step 3: Legs

Picture of Legs
Homestar has white legs, so I went out to the store and bought some white tights/long thermal underwear.  Be sure to pick a pair that isn't too see through, or else you'll have to layer up!

Thanks for the great tutorial! I used it and made a costume that I wore to fanime con 2014 this year. And I even had a Coach Z with me!
