How to DIY a Halloween Costume of SNL’s David S. Pumpkins

When you’re putting together your Halloween costume this year you’re probably going to want to go for the scariest, most frighteningly terrifying thing you can imagine. Something that will scare people after a mere glimpse of your outfit, and leave them unraveled by nightmares. I’m talking about David S. Pumpkins!

Nine-time Saturday Night Live host Tom Hanks’ freaky Halloween character was the talk of the internet this weekend after making his debut as the star of the most recent episode’s “Haunted Elevator” sketch. Viewers couldn’t get enough of the super scary, pumpkin-suit wearing boogieman… and when I say “boogie,” I’m referring to his stunning dance moves.

The character’s pumpkin suit is sure to be the hit of any Halloween party. Luckily, we’ve found the exact adult pumpkin party suit (OppoSuits’ “Pumpking” suit) to trick yourself out and treat yourself to a rockin’ good time. Who’s to say this Jack-o’-lantern-patterned outfit has to be worn on Halloween? I’m sure your office wouldn’t mind seeing this ensemble each and every day.

David Pumpkins may be his own thang, but the skeletons are part of it! To put together those trusty sidekick outfits all you need is a skeleton suit, a fright wig, and makeup. The purchasable costume is labeled as a Karate Kid skeleton suit, which makes me want to deep dive and find out if David Pumpkins’ backstory has something to do with the Cobra Kai.

Below you’ll find the supply list for you and two friends to complete your David S. Pumpkins-and-skeleton-backup-dancers ensemble. Any questions?
