About Monsters Inc Costumes
Monsters Inc is a computer-animated film released in 2001 by Pixar and Disney, in which essentially lovable 'monsters' are employed at the eponymous company to scare kids at bedtime. A prequel, Monsters University, was released in 2013.
The two lead characters of the Monsters Inc films are very popular themes for fancy dress and are available as onesie style costumes or official fancy dress attire. James P. "Sulley" Sullivan is the star worker at Monsters Inc, he is large with muscular arms, and is covered with blue and purple fur. He has horns, and prominent claws on hands and feet. Sulley's main sidekick is Mike Wazowski. Mike is a short and spherical Cyclops.
The majority of Monsters Inc costumes are Sulley costumes, not least because his appearance makes him the ideal design for a plush onesie. If you're looking for a fancy-dress costume rather than a fun play suit, make sure yours includes a head, hands and feet. As his face has a long chin, a Sulley hat or hood should usually feature his big round eyes and broad dog-like nose as well as his horns.
Many Mike onesies and pyjamas are designed around his distinctive colour, and feature his singular eye and toothy grin printed onto the torso. Sometimes with his small pointy ears are represented on the shoulders. Others represent his head/body in the head part of the costume. The most successful Mike costumes stress his spherical shape and huge monocular grin.
