Homemade Monsters, Inc. Family Costume
These are our cool homemade Monsters Inc. family
costumes. I dressed as Mike, my husband was Mike and our little girl was Boo.
For Mike's costume, I used 9 layers of paper mache over an exercise ball. Be careful not to cover the plug so that you can deflate it and save it for another occasion. I then painted it with Mike's features. I used an ordinary construction hat that I painted to resemble the hats in the movie.
For my husband's costume, I used about 3 yards of furry fabric. I dyed it three times because it was acrylic, a material that does not absorb dye very well. The spots were fabric paint which comes in an aerosol can. I put a headband on the inside of his hood to keep the horns erect. I also put a metal hanger in the tail (which you can't see here) to keep it raised instead of flopping down.
Boo's costume was purple fleece lined with grey fleece. I used a mop head for the hair and the eye balls were Styrofoam balls, attached to pipe cleaners and then covered with black electrical tape.

I made this Homemade Monsters Inc. Family Costume to be different from other people since every kid loves Sully. I figured hey why not buy a sewing machine and try it out! Lol, well needless to say I succeeded and everyone wanted pictures with us especially Sully! Sully is made out of faux fur and I sewing in a pillow stuffed belly to make him nice & heavy! & I am celia, Mike's Girlfriend :) Which took a lot of work because she was very time consuming with A LOT of detail cutting each piece indivually and getting it on that dress so it could flap perfectly!
