How to make an Eric Cartman costume

Eric Cartman is the largest of the four boys from the US comedy TV series "South Park." Just remember he is not fat, he’s just big-boned. Team up with friends who can dress as Stan, Kyle and Kenny. Finding the components for a Cartman costume is straightforward. Choose large trousers and a jacket to which you can add stuffing -- unless you are already big boned. Accessorise with a bag of cheesy puffs, or carry a stuffed cat, Mr Kitty, with you.

  1. 1

    Put on loose fitting black or brown trousers which can be jeans, dress pants, corduroy, track suit pants or anything you like. Place padding inside the top of the trousers to bulk out your middle.

  2. 2

    Don the red jacket. Wear whatever you want underneath it, depending on temperature. The jacket can be a ski jacket, winter jacket or even a button-up cardigan will give the right look.

  3. 3

    Attach the yellow pom-pom to the hat by either sewing it on or using a safety pin. Add a thin strip of yellow material to the bottom of the beanie so that it looks like Cartman’s hat. Put on hat, gloves and footwear.

  4. 4

    Draw straight-line eyebrows on your face for comic effect, or use a mask. Cartman masks can be bought online or at party shops and a large size full-face mask gives the costume a more cartoonish appearance.
