OF "BERT & ERNIE," BUT SANS ERNIE
IT'S BERT'S TIME TO SHINE
Help us raise money for pancreatic cancer research and in exchange you'll get photos (and a Christmas card) of me running a 5K in a full Bert costume!
This is a handmade mascot-style costume with a large stuffed head made from a vintage 1980s costume pattern. See my previous Snoopy & Kermit costumes for an idea of what this will look like!
$250: Bert sunglasses
$500: Bert shirt
$750: Bert sunglasses + Bert shirt
$1000: FULL BERT: giant Bert head + Bert shirt + Bert gloves
$1250: add a paperclip collection
$1500: add oatmeal: I will eat oatmeal, Bert's favorite food, mid-race
$1750: make it *dry* oatmeal: this seems harsh but I'll do it for the money
$2000: add the sheep from "Bert's Blanket"
$2500: add Bernice, Bert's pet pigeon
$5000: FULL BERTFROG: I will somehow find a way to wedge my old Batman cowl over the giant Bert head
