here is a nice little instructable for someone who has a little too much ambition, some time on their hands (sleep is for the weak) and a strong desire to have the best costume at the party

Step 1: tools

gather these tools to begin your quest

riveter and rivets
drill and bit that can cut metal
duct tape (lots)
rubber cement
sewing pins
non-hemophilia (my amateur metal working puts the emphasis on 'amateur' and the metal is sharp
tin snips
NOW I know what to do with those green shag area rugs in my basement! And that beat up can in the shed... great idea! Oscar was the only one beside Snuffleupicus I could relate to, and he would be beyond me. <br>Nice job! :)
where did you get the fabric for the costume?<br>Amber
very funny!
I Love This, Great Job!!
Where did u get ur lime green fur, i found some at walmart, but its 17.99 for a bathroom rug, i dont wanna pay that much for so little
most fabric stores will have fake fur of various colors, don't bother with walmart, if they actually sell fabric (I've only ever seen a couple that did) they won't have anything like this, try to find an actual fabric store or something like a Joann craft/fabric store.
you can use a jig saw with a metal blade<br />
need a little help finding the fabric for this costume. if anyone could be of adssitance it would be great. thank you.
I went to a store called 'fabric place' which i think is going out of business unfortunately. i was actually going to use a dark green felt fabric until i luckily stumbled upon this.
thank you but i can seem to get on that site. it just pops up a big banner.
lol i posted that in september <br/><br/><sub>yesterday, all my trouble seemed so far away...</sub><br/><br/>lol<br/><br/>gotta love the beetles<br/>
pretty much, yes

You actually played the sesame street theme song in your costume... that's awesome. I'll have that to the list of things to do when I make mine. I decided a sometime after Halloween last year (after fulfilling my lifelong dream of being a ninja for Halloween) that I would be oscar the grouch. It's nice to find someone else who's done it so I can get some ideas.
Its not Halloween anymore.
why that sounds like a comment from someone who doesn't love halloween.
indeed. and who could not love Halloween? It's a joyous festival!!!
But the Halloween contest is open until the end of this weekend!
Nice Johnny Cupcakes T-Shirt.
Does it have armholes?
Could you use a big plastic garbage can - either a gray one or one you spray paint silver? This would cut down on injuries. And how about adding some garbage coming out of the can? That would be awesome!
i am able to come out of the can. i'll try and get some pics of me like that. and plastic isn't authentic. i don't like to do things half-way.
That's great! My son LOVES Sesame Street and would love this.
