Honestly!!  How freaking funny is this mask?!  When I finished making it, I brought it with me to school to pick up the boys so that when the bell rang I stuck it on my head to surprise Isaiah. (Yes, I AM that Mom!)

He was absolutely thrilled to see it all done and ready for him to wear because he wanted a turn to walk around in it.  It was a hit with his friends at school too so total Mom win!

Simple right?  Finding the orange hair for this Beeker muppet costume was the hardest part of putting this costume together because I had to search everywhere.  I found it in the craft section at Fabricland $70/metre!!  Good thing that it was on sale…

We paired the Beaker mask with a plaid t-shirt, solid blue tie and mint dress shirt to complete our Beaker muppet costume look.  I just love how he turned out because it is seriously priceless!  I can just picture the boys playing all sorts of pranks on each other and their friends with this mask!

Hi
Love this mask! Where did you put the eye holes to see out of? (Or did he see through the mouth? (Confuses as you said to put red felt over mouth?)

Thank you!

How does the back of the mask look?
