I would see if I could find a brown sweatsuit - a hoodie preferably and pants and add felt ears and tail. I think you could do that inexpensively and it be really, really cute! HTH!

Old Navy has a fairly cheap monkey costume... you could just add the red t-shirt!

I made a costume (bear) for ds last year. I used a "sewing for dummies" pattern and it was really easy. I didn't even use a sewing machine. I used furry materials which hid all my stiches, so it looked fine.

I second the sweatsuit.. Only in the south I'd reccomend some leggings and a brown shirt.

Maybe you can be the man in yellow with the big hat.

when I was looking on websites yesterday, I saw a curious george costume and it was 19.00. I 'm not sure you can make one for much cheaper!

I would try Mervyns or JCPenneys for the brown sweat suit. I have found them both to be good in that area.
