Halloween 2006 is over! I was happy to win the Best Character contest at work. I've won 4 years in a row now! Woot!

I've got lots of goodies about my costume here this year. I'm including the plans that I scribbled down before making the costume as well as sound effects, pictures, and some videos of the costume in action.

Sound effects

Here is the file containing the sound effects that I played through portable speakers as I hopped around in the costume.

If you have Google SketchUp, here is the SketchUp file I used to see what the nose would look like. Warning, it's my first use of this software and the result is pretty pathetic. But, it helped a bit.
