I want to get a costume for a fancy dress and was hoping to dress up like those little guys on the tic tac ad that carry yer man along. you know them. Can't find any costumes anywhere on the net though. Any ideas on how you'd go about making one. [/u]

Cool idea, no idea how you'd go about it though!

Been thinking about this (decided not to do any work today :o0 ), the only thing I could think of for the tube part would be one of those tunnel thingies that kids play in?? You could cut it down to size, cover with a sheet and then attach material to the top and bottom for the round ends - don't know how you'd keep them stiff though??

this is brutal but have been scanning the internet all day even to get a picture of something similar that i could copy it. can't find anything though. I wonder if i emailed Tic Tac would they give me a costume :o0

I've seen the M&M costumes in the states before, but the tic-tac men are fairly new so probably aren't any around yet.

Brilliant photo Picnic!!! Hairy Molly, I've been wracking my brains trying to think how you could make your costume and I just can't think of how. I just love the idea though, it'd be flaming hilarious!!!
