How much effort would a decent ALF costume be?

How good are you at soft-stuff sculpture?

Also, how much are you willing to spend on dark-tone pantyhose, and polyester fiberfill?

I used some of the spare time (which is a lot of time) during one of my shifts to create a custom dictionary for Typing of the Dead: Overkill for medical terminology. It's only a little more than 300 words, and the difficulty is only modest, but I did a thing:

That's a nice idea!  I don't have the game or I'd give it a try, I used to love typing games.  Medical terminology is always fun too.

How much effort would a decent ALF costume be?
Mask seems tricky and maybe most important part, so might be easiest just to buy one for ~$30 looks like.  The rest seems like a pretty generic fursuit, so should be relatively easy.
Then the hard part: coming up with believable clothes to make him decent.

(I have very little cosplay experience I just wanted to say that last bit)

ALF's face is totally soft sculpture. It is a class of textile/fabric art that uses a thin, lightweight strechknit, like found in women's nylon stockings.

Obligatory Youtube vid demo

It is usually used to make horrible baby dolls.

ALF's skin tone is rather dark. To get that, you will need dark brown "ethnic" color pantyhose.  You will also need a set of doll maker's needles, some heavy thread, and an epic buttload of polyester fiberfill.

Also, skill making soft-sculpture.

Gonna dress up as lazy urkel for halloween.

I have a shoestring for the glasses strap
Tape for the glasses bridge
white socks
rolled up dockers
turquoise suspenders
turquoise bowtie
flannel short sleeved shirt.

Anything missing?  I am not going to wear bowling shoes...  And kind of unsure if the sweater vest is required to make it work...  like do kids under the age of 30 even know who urkel is anymore?

So i did a dry run of this . . . and several things happened.

1:  A girl asked if I was 'a dancer'
2: An older woman took it seriously as an outfit
3: Some young people didnt know who erkel was
4: an older woman who was working at a grocery store thought I was a stand up comedian, just - like - steve- urkel.

So what came out of it is that i'll wear it as an old timey outfit.  I think it looks okay as a serious business outfit, tbh.

Is "urk" used as a sound of disgust in English?

Indeed it is. The "-kel" ending of Urkel also, to my Swedish mind, being to mind the word "ńckel", which is the Swedish word for disgust. Like it's a portmanteau of urk and ńckel.

A very uncomfortable name.
