HallowMeme: But That’s None of My Business Costume

Between memes and Emojis, the Internet and technology have really shaped the way we communicate.  I have about ten different memes saved in my phone under favorites and I use them to communicate with my friends and family on a regular basis. Sometimes nothing really drives the point home like a picture of a stunned cat or dog. The Kermit meme exploded on the Internet scene over the last year and its easily become one of my favorite pictures to post, so I decided to do something different and be the Kermit meme for Halloween this year!

This costume was extremely easy to put together. Here’s what you need if you don’t already have a Kermit costume.
  •  A green sweatshirt with a hood (I bought mine from Goodwill on Waterloo Rd for $5). You can also get them on Amazon.
  • Optional: green pants or tights. I got mine on Amazon.
  • A green piece of felt (craft stores sell them in pieces like scrapbook paper for 25 cents)
  • A glue gun
  • 2 table tennis balls or 2 cotton balls (I found a pack of 6 table tennis balls at the craft store for $1)
  • A black marker
  • White foam board
  • X-acto knife or regular knife
  • A glass tea cup ( I bought 4 for 50 cents a piece at Goodwill on Waterloo Rd)
  • A tea bag

To make Kermit’s costume: 

  • Trace triangles with a marker on the felt
  • Cut out the triangles
  • Place them on your sweatshirt around the collar
  • Use your glue gun to glue them to the sweatshirt
  • Use your black marker to draw Kermit’s eyeballs on the table tennis balls. Don’t glue your eyes to the hood until after you put the jacket on (do this carefully and with assistance, don’t burn your head!)

To make the meme board: 

  • Write the saying with a black marker
  • Trace a rectangle in the center of the board
  • With an X-acto knife, carefully cut out the rectangle, creating a window.
  • Brew some tea, put on a smug face and get ready to have a Happy HallowMeme! (Obviously don’t brew tea if you’re going to party!)
