Halloween 2011

This Halloween, I was having a lot of trouble deciding what costume I should wear/create. That is, until it was suggested to me that I dress up as Copernicus, the Homicidal Monkey. How could that not be AMAZING?

“Homicidal Taxidermied Monkey” is fairly impossible to find in costume stores or online, so I had to crack my knuckles and create it myself from scratch. I used grey micro-fleece, the world’s most aggravating sewing machine and created my own patterns from clothes that were shaped the way I wanted the pieces to fit. For the hat, I used this pattern from DeviantArt.

Here’s the original:

"Where do you guys keep the knives?"

Copernicus, the Homicidal Monkey is the property of The Bloggess who hopefully will not bring down his wrath upon me for using her image!

Here’s how mine came out.

Where do you guys keep the knives?

I think I pulled it off rather well. What do you think?

  3. That is the awesome. Be sure when you’re giving out “free hugs” that you don’t commit to full strangulation – let go as soon as they pass out.

    BRILLIANT! I bet you had to explain it a lot, though.

  10. You look awesome. But I’ll bet you did have to explain it a bit. It’s the occupational hazard of creative costuming. I went dressed as the crazy, aging tranny who works at the sunglasses kiosk at the mall. If you’re from New Orleans, it was hilarious. Everybody else just thought I was a freak. Mission still accomplished really.

      I did have to explain it to a lot of people but I just queued up the photo on my phone so I could whip it out switchblade style.

      Waaaa-KOW!

      I have Copernicus’ approval! Does this mean I can remove the dead-bolts on my doors or is it simply a trick?
