Funny DIY Halloween Costume Idea: Nightmarish Purple People Eater on the Prowl



While trick-or-treating, watch out for this 7’5” One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Eater!  With a pair of purple scrubs this monster came to life one night in Grandma’s sewing room using recycled materials.

The black “eyebrow” is made using privacy screen from a screened door or porch, so he can see out, but you can’t see in!  He flies on wings of shear curtains with pipe cleaners sewn on them like veins with bones to give them a shape.  Hands are leather gloves painted in neon yellow with green fur; he’ll get noticed even at night.  Don’t worry though, his claws are fake, made from x-ray film.  With boots made from black denim with furry toes sticking out, you can’t take him too seriously.  Human body parts sticking to him are really just a stuffed surgical glove on the end of a shirt sleeve. Sweet dreams, Nikolas!
