Big Bird Costume
One thing that has come out of the presidential debates is a whole new popularity in one particular halloween costume – the Big Bird Costume!! It has to do with the fact that Mitt Romney said that while he indeed did love PBS and everything on it – including big bird, he was going to have to cut PBS’ funding! Pundits took that and started running and next thing you know, one of the fastest selling halloween costumes of the year was born – the big bird halloween costume!!
Big Bird Costume for adults
So, if you fall into one of the categories of people that saw the debates and therefore want a big bird halloween costume because of that, you are looking for an adult costume. Generally, the woman’s adult big bird costume consists of a yellow skirt and top, striped leggings, and yellow heels of some kind. Top your head off with the mask of a yellow bird with a beak and the costume is complete!
Big Bird Costume for Kids
Kids on the other hand probably want a big bird costume not for political reasons, but rather because they really love Sesame Street and in particular love their yellow feathered friend. Luckily there are a number of choices in kids costumes. Most looks do tend to go for the more “realistic” big bird meaning that the head will not just be a yellow cap with a beak, but be much more detailed and Big-Bird-like!
Big Bird Mask
Of course, like most halloween costumes, if you don’t want to get full-bodied costumed, there is the plain mask option. Luckily the Big Bird mask is so clearly and easily identifiable everyone will know exactly who you are whether or not the rest of your body is dressed up!
