Glad Halloween, Muppet followers! It’s that particular time of yr after we all costume in ridiculous costumes and stuff our faces filled with sweet. Okay, in order that’s what we do year-round, however now everybody else is doing it too. And with all these loopy costumes out and about, we’re sure to see some Muppet-themed ones. And if we see ’em, we’re gonna share ’em!

Yearly for the previous 20(!) years, we’ve been scouring the web to gather all of our favourite Muppet, Sesame, and Henson-related costumes. We’re constantly blown away by the creativity of some cosplayers, and it’s such a deal with to witness devoted Muppet followers within the wild. That’s why we’re excited to share the most recent installment of the ToughPigs Halloween Parade!

When you’re dressing as a Muppet this Halloween, or for those who see a Muppet costume out in the actual world, please be sure you e mail them to us to be used in subsequent yr’s Halloween Parade. And now – on with the Parade!

Let’s begin issues off with a bang! (Sorry, no Loopy Harry outfits this yr… I hoped I may’ve summoned one with that remark.) These of us are all celebrating their love of The Muppet Present with some fluff, feathers, and mustaches. I admire how a Swedish Chef costume doesn’t really feel full with no stuffed rooster, simply as a generic “previous man” outfit turns into a Statler or Waldorf as soon as they pair up. The informal Gonzo and Fozzie outfits could possibly be worn year-round, and whereas that Sweetums seems terrific, I simply fear about that doomed Kermit in his mouth.

I’ve seen a number of Depend Von Depend costumes in my day, and it’s good to see somebody keep in mind that he will also be a spooky vampire who hangs out in graveyards. He’s a killer, and we should always worry him!

Y’know, these Darkish Crystal characters are already so intricately detailed, I’ll by no means perceive how any cosplayer would even start to emulate them. From the creases in a Skeksis face to the wings of a Gelfling – the Frouds can be proud.

Hey, that’s our pal Matthew Gaydos from the Kermitment podcast! Matthew is significantly nailing that Caroll Spinney outfit, with excellent particulars proper right down to the monitor strapped to his chest. What an ideal technique to homage the person who introduced Large Chook to life.

Kermit and Miss Piggy at all times have their fair proportion of cosplayers. Frankly, I don’t know why Disney doesn’t simply promote pig snouts, pointed collars, and ping pong balls. They’d make a fortune each October.

Ever surprise what’d occur for those who left a Muppet out within the solar too lengthy?

Fraggle Rock has a brand new collection on Apple TV, so I anticipate we’ll see an uptick in Fraggle costumes within the coming yr. So, extra pom-pom pigtail wigs, banana tree shirts, and selfmade baloobiuses. I gotta give additional props to the dedication of the spraypainted shirtless Doozer, in addition to anybody who decides to cowl themselves in rubbish simply to pay homage to their favourite Fraggle Rock characters. Nicely executed!

What a intelligent technique to carry your little trick-or-treater round! And that Bruno doesn’t even want to fret about puppeteering their child Oscar.

Wow, now speak about a deep-cut! This unimaginable cosplayer is dressed as Miss Piggy from Muppet Treasure Island!! With out the accompanying photograph, you may suppose she’s only a fan of leopard print and feather boas, however that costume is delightfully spot-on.

I’ve been having this recurring nightmare a few monstrous lizard and a ferocious bear train me easy methods to trip a two-wheeler and OH MY GOD IT WASN’T A DREAM!

The household that cosplays as a bunch of ragtag selection present performers stays collectively.


Unusually, these two didn’t intentionally costume as Gary and Mary from The Muppets. They’re simply fashionable boomers.

I’m loving all of the tiny particulars on this Jim-and-Kermit duo costume. The scarf, the flipper slippers, the “dad sweater”, and the arm rod. This isn’t simply parenting executed proper, it’s hope for a brand new era of Muppet fanatics.

Okay, it’s time for us to fess up. That is how ToughPigs actually began – with a Kermit the Frog loss of life cult. We had been recruited younger, nevertheless it all appears to have labored out to date.

I’m fascinated by this household’s Labyrinth group costume. Each certainly one of them is ideal – Tiny Ludo, Big Didymus, Pirate Hoggle. I want my dad and mom liked me sufficient to decorate me up as an previous woman carrying all my belongings on my again.

I imply, significantly. Take a look at this child because the Worm! Bloody good.

That is what occurs if you cross the Muppets with Rocky Horror Image Present. And hey, they may’ve included a Tim Curry cosplayer and it nonetheless would’ve labored for each franchises!

Look, my senior promenade was… memorable. Let’s go away it at that.

I like these Electrical Mayhem cosplayers. Every certainly one of them is terrific in its personal approach. If solely these 4 all received collectively and, I dunno, began a band or one thing. They’d in all probability get their very own Disney+ collection.

Bean Bunny! It’s a Bean Bunny costume! Have you ever ever seen one thing so pleasant in all of your days??

Yearly we discover one significantly spectacular Sweetums costume. This yr, the function of Sweetums will probably be performed by this bush.

The winner of this yr’s parade is that this spectacular Frank Oz costume. We’ve seen Jim Hensons and Caroll Spinneys, nevertheless it’s uncommon for anybody to really seize Frank’s essence, his panache, his… mustache. The cosplayer in query is a little bit of a ringer – skilled costume artist Rob Johnston – however he definitely put within the work to place him head-and-shoulders (and ‘stache) above the remaining.

And that’s a wrap on this yr’s ToughPigs Halloween Parade! Due to everybody who despatched us photographs, and be sure you ship us all of your Muppet costumes for subsequent yr’s Parade!
