Bernard (costume)

For our wild rumpus, Daddy is Bernard. The following info describes steps to making a male version of Bernard.

Materials: horn with strap
Tools: paintbrush, white acrylic paint
(Buy a pair of horns from a costume shop and paint it.)

Materials: bull nose
Tools: paintbrush, light blue acrylic paint
(Buy a cow/bull nose from a costume shop and paint it.)

Materials: fuzzy gray shirt, gray shorts, tan shoes
Tools: n/a
(Find a shirt that resembles that of Bernard's body such as ours from eBay. Not an easy task, but I was real lucky to find this gem for only $10. Heck, I might even use this silly shirt when I go clubbing later! Add tan shoes or if you have the money, buy huge costume human feet like the book's character.)

And that's Bernard's costume!

Total time: 30 min
