The previous Halloween post referenced Domo-kun, I’ve put together simple instructions to build your own Domo-kun costume. Large sheets of cardboard, brown shipping tape, and red spraypaint could make a basic domo-kun. For a more realistic domo-kun, add a screen (for a front window), old carpet, carpet foam, bowls or round objects for eyes (painted black), and paper-mache for rounded corners.
Tips – the weight of the costume will rest on your shoulders so plan accordingly. Rounded corners can be achieved through paper-mache, carpet or foam. Inset the mouth 2 to 3 inches to achieve dimension. The mouth should include a spray-painted screen (find replacement screen door material at Home Depot) so you can see out the front. Small holes can also do the trick, but are more visible.
