How to make an Ernie from Sesame Street costume
One half of the loveable Sesame Street Muppet duo of Bert and Ernie, Ernie is the fun-loving, goofy pal to his buddy Bert’s straight-laced, irritable persona. For almost 40 years, Bert and Ernie have been entertaining children on Sesame Street and teaching them that you can be best friends with someone different from you.

##Putting together your Ernie from Sesame Street costume##
Step 1: Get dressed up in your Ernie costume. Layer the yellow ribbed turtleneck underneath your striped shirt. Leave them untucked over your jeans or pants.
Step 2: Start applying your orange cream makeup to your face. If you want, leave room around your eyes to apply white makeup to simulate Ernie’s googly eyes.
Step 3: Accentuate your eyebrows by going over them or extending them further with a black eyeliner/eyebrow pencil.
Step 4: Put on your small red clown nose, similar to Ernie’s round, red nose.
Step 5: Plop on your messy, short black wig.
Step 6: Put on a pair of orange knit gloves to look like Ernie’s hands.
Step 7: Grab your faithful Rubber Ducky and ask for directions to Sesame Street!
