Mary from The Muppets

Mary (played by Amy Adams) is the girlfriend of Gary in The Muppets.  An elementary school teacher and a capable mechanic, Mary helps Gary’s Muppet brother Walter save the Muppet Theatre.  Mary wears many colorful, vintage-inspired outfits throughout the film.  When in doubt, reach for bold, bright colors in silhouettes inspired by the 1950s.

Gary from The Muppets

Gary (played by Jason Segel) is the human brother of Walter and one of the main protagonist of The Muppets.  Along with his girlfriend Mary, Gary must help Walter and Kermit the Frog get the Muppets back together to save the Muppet Theatre from a greedy businessman.  Gary wears many outfits throughout the film, but some of his most memorable include the blue striped pajamas and baby blue suit he wears during different musical numbers.  If you can find a Walter plush toy to tag along with your costume, it could truly take it to the next level, though they’re difficult to come by.
