So after making so much superhero stuff, I figured my next Con costume should be from another genre. Characters and shows were thought of that have never gone away, that have been around for generations. The Muppet Show came to mind! Photos and screenshots were scaled up to a wearable size for accuracy. Behold Beaker! He is the first of a planned few :) .

Full/current Beaker construction photos can be seen here https://www.facebook.com/media/set/...629.1073741827.1095939327&type=1&l=8de25b2c55 and yes his mouth does open and close :) .

My finished Beaker head:

Compared to the real Beaker. Close enough!

Re: Beaker from The Muppet Show!

excellent!


Thanks! He's really fun to wear and gets lots of very emotional attention, which was surprising. Like people crying from happiness.

There's a Beaker interview here at the 10:25 mark "Cosplay in America" @ Rose City Comic Con 2013 - YouTube

and Beaker won 2nd place at Rose City Comic Con's costume contest in his category which was a total surprise since it was his first time being worn! Scroll all the way to the 59:55 mark to see his few seconds of stage entry Rose City Comic Con: Cosplay Contest - YouTube . So much fun.

Re: Beaker from The Muppet Show!

Wonderful job on both of those, but the Beaker is especially cool.

Thank you much! I've purchased an audio control board and will be getting a servo motor and batteries here soon, so Beaker's mouth with be electronic instead of a pull string. If it works well, Bunsen will get an upgrade and Swedish Chef maybe but Chef is still under construction. The electronics cost more than the costumes!

Thank you much! There are a lot of ..... sub-par..... Beakers when you Google them. My main goal was to make him look like an 18" Muppet even though he's close to 7 feet tall. It's all about scale and ratios to make him look right.

Well you certainly pulled that off, It does look like an enlarged beaker muppet. Super stuff :D

Re: Beaker, Bunsen Honeydew and Swedish Chef!

Oh, so awesome! An emotional reaction from me, that's for sure! One of my life's highlights was playing Bunsen and Beaker as Richard Hunt's "stand in" during a production just months before Jim died. The original Muppets will always have a fond place in my heart. I'm so glad to see another fan keeping them alive!

You sir are one of them there bonified genius types! These are amazing in action and I can't wait to see the chef!

(I eat popcorn like a muppet. I just sort of throw handfuls of it in the general direction of my head and hope some goes in my mouth.....)
