How to make a Perry the Platypus Costume for Halloween

Got a box? Got an hour? Make a homemade costume for creative play, trick or treating, or a fun spontaneous parade. We saw an episode of Phineas and Ferb and Candace was wearing a Perry Costume. We had to make our own Perry the Playtpus Homemade Costume for Halloween. Enjoy!

So, I was surfing Facebook and caught this photo of Candace dressed in a Perry the Platypus costume, and I immediately knew I'd be recreating it for the blog. What a great idea for creative play- Box recycling. Who doesn't love a box?

Who indeed? Of course, the family cat loves a box.


How to make a Perry the Platypus Costume

First, I grabbed an old box.Then, I tried to match Perry's teal color with paint I had on hand. I got a drab teal by mixing blue + white + a dash of red.


 

I didn't want to go to the store. It was hurricane weather- even Indiana was cold and windy. So, I searched my stash of junk and found old paper plates, squished turquoise crepe paper garland, styrofoam circles, and lucky me an old, beige fedora!


Start by taping an end to the back, and then line glue all around 
and attach the crepe paper.
Paint your beak orange.
Paint a mouth on one side.
Attach paper plate beak to inside with tape.
Cut out paper eyeball and wrap crepe over for eyebrows.


Finally...




  • Insert kid as Candace. 
  • Find Phineas and Ferb Friends. 

This took a couple of hours. I loved that we had everything on hand and could recycle my craft supplies. Full Disclosure: I ran out of crepe, so I made sure to cover the front and let the sides go with just paint.
