Awesome Hungry Hungry Hippos Group Costume



We made the heads out of poster board. We pretty much cut up the board until we made it look like a mailbox  (which we were told it looks like without the face made). We used superglue, regular paper for the eyes and teeth, and small wooden sticks for the eyebrows. It took a lot of practice, time and patience but it finally came together!

Headband

Cut a strip of poster board to a headband size to your liking and measure your head circumference. super glue. This is the band that is going to keep the rest of the board up.

Head:

Take more of the poster board and fold it over the headband. superglue the sides. cut the excess part off the front. You need to super glue a separate piece for the back and front (face). We had the most difficulty with this part.

Face:

For the mouth part, you need to fold it to a table shape, superglue the front of the mouth, and connect to the rest of the head. By now, it should look like a mailbox. Add eyes, eyebrows, teeth and ears.
