    I have been playing drums for over 2 decades because of Animal and Buddy Rich on The Muppet Show. I am invited to a party this month's end with a "favorite 70's tv character" theme. I am looking if the Animal costume seen on this page http://www.muppetcentral.com/collectibles/muppets/arts_1982.shtml is available for purchase anywhere, or even just an Animal mask.

    I don't know anything about those patterns, but I'd love the Fozzie Bear one!

    As for Animal, you should be able to find a red, fuzzy head/beard wig at your local costume shop. The one I have been making my Mahna-Mahna puppet from was $15. It was orange, and I think there was a red.

    For the body, get an orange, long-sleeve shirt. Then a vest. Dye the vest or paint it, whichever, yellow. Get some string (red) and stitch it through the button holes.

    Get some brown slacks and shred them from the legs up to the knees.

    Get some sandles.

    There is also a spongey foam red clown nose you could get for an animal nose.

    Paint teeth on your upper lip with WATER BASED ACRYLIC PAINT, black of the same style paint to do the eyebrows. Red, Pink and Yellow paint and a thin brush and you can do your own fur on your face behind the wig.

    Clothes are available at Goodwill or some other outlet store for cheap.

    Hope this helps SOME, in case you can't find what you're looking for.

    I saw a Rowlf and a Kermit costume in a costume rent shop a few years ago. They were actually quite good.
    I have been thinking of it ever since and are considering going the 200 km just to hear if it would be possible to buy the 2 costumes. But I haven't got around to it yet.

    So maybe it's possible to find one of Animal that way to
