I love your Schweaty balls

My sister is going to a SNL themed Halloween party. She needs ideas for "obscure, I mean so obscure that people are like 'Wow that is obscure!' "I told her that not many SNL characters are that obscure and if they are, no one's going to get it anyway. Yet being my sister I feel I should help her. I suggested Rosanne Rossana Danna, but that was not obscure enough. So I turn to the green.

Bear Ambition

I would like to wear a bear costume for Halloween, but the only storebought options I have found on eBay and elsewhere online haven't quite matched what I'm looking for. This is basically what I'm after, as a reference. Or possibly even this one or this one. If anyone out there knows where to find something similar that would fit a 5'9" 130 lb person, I would be thankful (bonus points if I can buy it in the Vancouver, BC area) Full disclosure: I plan on drinking beer from a growler with 'Honey' written on it.
