This is a design I created for the New York City Halloween parade. Muno appeared with his buddies Sock Monkey and Mr. X (as featured in the classic Kia commercial).
How d'ya like me now?
Step 1: Materials and Prep Work
Muno was designed to fit a 6ft brit, who happens to be quite thin. This costume can be adjusted accordingly, but the instructions provided here will be for a tall thin person.
Weeks before starting this project, I had already decided the bumps on Muno's body would be made from the tops of 1 liter seltzer bottles. I made sure to save them so I had a large quantity at my fingertips. Make sure you select a brand that has a perfectly round top vs one with a v shape!
