And if we see ’em, we’re gonna share ’em!
Yearly for the previous 20(!) years, we’ve been scouring the web to gather all of our favourite Muppet, Sesame, and Henson-related costumes. We’re persistently blown away by the creativity of some cosplayers, and it’s such a deal with to witness devoted Muppet followers within the wild. That’s why we’re excited to share the newest installment of the ToughPigs Halloween Parade!
In the event you’re dressing as a Muppet this Halloween, or when you see a Muppet costume out in the actual world, please you’ll want to e mail them to us to be used in subsequent 12 months’s Halloween Parade. And now – on with the Parade!
Let’s begin issues off with a bang! (Sorry, no Loopy Harry outfits this 12 months… I hoped I may’ve summoned one with that remark.) These of us are all celebrating their love of The Muppet Present with some fluff, feathers, and mustaches. I respect how a Swedish Chef costume doesn’t really feel full and not using a stuffed rooster, simply as a generic “previous man” outfit turns into a Statler or Waldorf as soon as they pair up. The informal Gonzo and Fozzie outfits might be worn year-round, and whereas that Sweetums seems to be terrific, I simply fear about that doomed Kermit in his mouth.
I’ve seen loads of Rely Von Rely costumes in my day, and it’s good to see somebody keep in mind that he will also be a spooky vampire who hangs out in graveyards. He’s a killer, and we should always worry him!
Y’know, these Darkish Crystal characters are already so intricately detailed, I’ll by no means perceive how any cosplayer would even start to emulate them. From the creases in a Skeksis face to the wings of a Gelfling – the Frouds could be proud.
Hey, that’s our pal Matthew Gaydos from the Kermitment podcast! Matthew is significantly nailing that Caroll Spinney outfit, with excellent particulars proper all the way down to the monitor strapped to his chest. What an ideal method to homage the person who introduced Large Fowl to life.
Kermit and Miss Piggy all the time have their justifiable share of cosplayers. Frankly, I don’t know why Disney doesn’t simply promote pig snouts, pointed collars, and ping pong balls. They’d make a fortune each October.
Ever surprise what’d occur when you left a Muppet out within the solar too lengthy?
Fraggle Rock has a brand new sequence on Apple TV, so I count on we’ll see an uptick in Fraggle costumes within the coming 12 months. So, extra pom-pom pigtail wigs, banana tree shirts, and home made baloobiuses. I gotta give additional props to the dedication of the spraypainted shirtless Doozer, in addition to anybody who decides to cowl themselves in rubbish simply to pay homage to their favourite Fraggle Rock characters. Properly accomplished!
What a intelligent method to carry your little trick-or-treater round! And that Bruno doesn’t even want to fret about puppeteering their child Oscar.
Wow, now discuss a deep-cut! This unbelievable cosplayer is dressed as Miss Piggy from Muppet Treasure Island!! With out the accompanying photograph, you would possibly suppose she’s only a fan of leopard print and feather boas, however that costume is delightfully spot-on.
I’ve been having this recurring nightmare a couple of monstrous lizard and a ferocious bear train me the right way to journey a two-wheeler and OH MY GOD IT WASN’T A DREAM!
The household that cosplays as a gaggle of ragtag selection present performers stays collectively.
KERMIT THE DOG. DID YOU LAUGH? I WILL NOT BE TAKING QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME.
Unusually, these two didn’t intentionally costume as Gary and Mary from The Muppets. They’re simply fashionable boomers.
I’m loving all of the tiny particulars on this Jim-and-Kermit duo costume. The scarf, the flipper slippers, the “dad sweater”, and the arm rod. This isn’t simply parenting accomplished proper, it’s hope for a brand new era of Muppet fanatics.
Okay, it’s time for us to fess up. That is how ToughPigs actually began – with a Kermit the Frog demise cult. We had been recruited younger, however it all appears to have labored out up to now.
I’m fascinated by this household’s Labyrinth group costume. Each one among them is ideal – Tiny Ludo, Big Didymus, Pirate Hoggle. I want my dad and mom beloved me sufficient to decorate me up as an previous girl carrying all my belongings on my again.
I imply, significantly. Take a look at this child because the Worm! Bloody sensible.
That is what occurs if you cross the Muppets with Rocky Horror Image Present. And hey, they may’ve included a Tim Curry cosplayer and it nonetheless would’ve labored for each franchises!
Look, my senior promenade was… memorable. Let’s go away it at that.
I am keen on these Electrical Mayhem cosplayers. Every one among them is terrific in its personal means. If solely these 4 all acquired collectively and, I dunno, began a band or one thing. They’d in all probability get their very own Disney+ sequence.
Bean Bunny! It’s a Bean Bunny costume! Have you ever ever seen one thing so pleasant in all of your days??
Yearly we discover one significantly spectacular Sweetums costume. This 12 months, the function of Sweetums will likely be performed by this bush.
The winner of this 12 months’s parade is that this spectacular Frank Oz costume. We’ve seen Jim Hensons and Caroll Spinneys, however it’s uncommon for anybody to actually seize Frank’s essence, his panache, his… mustache. The cosplayer in query is a little bit of a ringer – skilled costume artist Rob Johnston – however he definitely put within the work to place him head-and-shoulders (and ‘stache) above the remaining.
And that’s a wrap on this 12 months’s ToughPigs Halloween Parade! Because of everybody who despatched us images, and you’ll want to ship us all of your Muppet costumes for subsequent 12 months’s Parade!
