Easy DIY Mr. Krabs Costume Guide

Mr. Krabs, voiced by Clancy Brown, is a miserly crab from the hit Nickelodeon TV show Spongebob Squarepants. He owns the fast-food restaurant, The Krusty Krab, where he employs Squidward Tentacles, a cynical squid, as the cashier. And a cheerful sponge, Spongebob Squarepants, as the fry cook. The Krusty Krab is known for serving its signature dish, Krabby Patties, burgers that have made a name for themselves in Bikini Bottom.

To dress like Mr. Krabs, you will need a red bodysuit and layer it with a light blue polo shirt, blue denim jeans, and a black belt. Top off your head with a crab hat with claws, and wear claw-shaped gloves. Remember to grab the money drawstring bag to complete your crabby look!

About Mr. Krabs From SpongeBob SquarePants

The arch-nemesis of Mr. Krabs is Plankton, the restaurant owner across the street that serves as his business competition, The Chum Bucket. Mr. Krabs spends several episodes attempting to thwart Plakton’s evil plans to steal the secret formula for his Krabby Patties.

Mr. Krabs is so in love with money that, in one episode, he is even seen tucking his money into bed! To Mr. Krabs, money comes before his family, customers, employees, and even his own life!

Throughout the series, he makes miserly money-saving efforts, such as refusing to raise Spongebob and Squidward’s pay and refusing to turn up the thermostat. Mr. Krabs is completely and utterly obsessed with money and is exceptionally frugal, going to extreme lengths to save money.
