First we0’ll look at the costumes that we offer in our store. We sell a complete Ernie costume that includes everything you need. The headpiece is plush so it should be comfortable and not too hard on the neck. This costume doesn’t take any time to put together, but it may be more expensive than some of the homemade examples. The costume retails for $80.
We also sell Bert and Ernie Masks if you are interested in saving money and finding the clothes yourself. The Masks are $32 each and are similar to the one included with the costume. Buying a mask is a great way to cut down on the cost of a costume if you can find the right clothing at a second hand store. Unfortunately, sometimes the right pattern or design can be tough to find.
This Homemade Bert and Ernie Costume was a pretty straight forward one to come up with. Basically I just took a bald cap and cut a small hole in the top. I took part of a fake beard and pulled it through the hole in the bald cap to make my Bert hair. Then just glued the cap on and painted myself yellow. I took a fake mustache, it came as a part of the fake beard that I used for the hair and glued the mustache on as my unibrow. Then I just through on a striped shirt and a pair of blue jeans and Extreme Ernie Makeover. Except my girlfriend wouldn't dress up as Ernie, so I had to get a small Ernie doll to hang out with me, because everyone knows Bert doesn't roll without Ernie.
