This is my home made James P. Sullivan project. It was fairly cheap to make using mostly supplies from Home Depot (excluding fur and fabric). The total project cost me 155$ And the fur was 106$ of the total. So if I chose a character to build without fur I would have saved time and money, (Mike Wizoski for example only cost me 45$).

Amazing, amazing amazing, did I say amazing? I think this looks better than some if the characters you see at the parks, although I've never seen sully, just mike. I can't wait for you to get in the contest so I can vote! I noticed you made another of my favorite costumes last year, Carl from UP. Keep up the great work! You are what makes Halloween awesome!

what did you use for the eyes? I like the finish.

For the eyes I used a large grapefruit sized bouncy ball and cut it in half. The paints i used were all glossy acrylic paints. Once the paint was dry I sprayed a glossy acrylic clear sealant. The sealant was made by MODGE PODGE from walmart.

do you rent it out?
wmorey37 (author)  ecarbajal10 months ago
after halloween I just put them in storage or throw them away. I never really thought about renting them out.

I'm right there with you. Big costumes are fun, but the garage is filling up. Had to make a very awkward trip to the dump with a giant lego :) Excellent build and I'm impress with how well the finish product turned out using simple chicken wire. I may have to abandon my complex 3d modeled dragon and just go redneck sculpter

Your stuff is awesome and trying to replicate the stuff is really fun. Keep it up!!

This really looks awesome, but I can't believe no one has pointed out that this is actually Sully from Monsters University, not Monsters, Inc.
While technically it is the same character, it is definitely a different look. And you sir, nailed the look perfectly. I love it.

I know lol, while typing the step by step I was thinking if I should label Sulley monsters inc or university? i figured most people would recognize or search "monsters inc" more often and I also made the jacket separate so I could walk around as older Sulley. Making the jacket separate helped because walking around with it on way pretty heavy, older Sully is much more enjoyable. Thanks for looking and commenting.
