Step 8: The Jacket

1.  Im using hula hoops for Sulleys belly (to make him look wide) so I measure the circumference of the hoops and made that the base of my jacket.
2.  I then measure from where I thought his belt line would be on his stomach, up and around the shoulders and back down to the belt line.
3.  you dont have to be very accurate because Sulley wears his jacket open.
4.  Sew the sides and edges.
5.  You may want to taper off by the shoulders to give the jacket its "varsity" look.
6.  for the sleeves i cut out the pleather to fit the circumference of the shoulders I created.  I measure from the top of his should to his belt line.  cut out the fabric and sewed with fishing line.
7.  for the collar trim of the jacket, measure the wrist cicumference, jacket width, and neck circumference and cut out the fabric accordingly.
8  I hot glued a pleather strip to each piece then sewed them in place.
9.  for the school logo, the giant M, I cut out a dark blue M, a slightly bigger white pleather M, and a slightly bigger baby blue felt M, then hot glued them all together and to the jacket.

This is easily one of the nicest things I have seen on here. Very impressive. Thank you for sharing.
This looks better than the one that I saw over in Disneyland! Great Job, keep it up.
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!
do you rent it out?
after halloween I just put them in storage or throw them away. I never really thought about renting them out.
<p>would you be willing to take an order for a sully? if so how much would it be? </p>
Do you sell it?
<p> I never had sold one but want to. I just build them as a hobby or for friends.</p>
<p>I would love to buy/rent this. It's amazing!</p>
how much?
I'd like to buy the Sulley costume.. Or have one custom made.. please email me at jfiti6@yahoo.com. Serious inquiry. Thank you!
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 <br>
I need it for my son birthday next month, please email me irunlbcdjhd@yahoo.com

<p>Absolutely Amazing!!!!!!</p>
Awesome!!! Do you rent it or sell it?
<p>Amazing job! How did you form his head?</p>
<p>what shade of blue fur did you use? Or was it just blue</p>
<p>omg, this was exactly what I was looking for, thanks!</p>
what did you use for the eyes? I like the finish.
<p>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.</p>
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. <br>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 &quot;monsters inc&quot; 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.
I don't even think Disney World has a Sulley costume this good...
Wow- that is incredible!
That's amazing the head is from Argos
Wow. Great job!
