Step 1: More Pictures

Side view... I used a pillow to make his stomach bigger :)
The costume is about 5' tall and weighs about 15 pounds.

Step 2: Head Shots

I carved a foam cylinder bought from a hobby store to make the basic face shape and stuffed his cheeks with polyester stuffing.The beard and hair are from the lining of an old jacket. And lastly it took 45 work hours to make... just in time for halloween!

    Wow, really incredible! In school, we learned how to build mascot-style costumes, so I know how much work went into this. The scale and everything is really well handled. Nice work! (next time - documented steps please!!!!) :D

    Thank you so much! It's so great to have someone like you (you stand out to me and you have been featured tons of time!) commenting on my first Instructable.
    You are right soooo much work went into this and I am sorry about not have having steps because I didn't even know about Instructables then. Thanks again!
