It's Halloween and the cutest mouse ever to visit Orlando, Florida, is a hit with young girls as well. Making a Minnie Mouse costume is relatively easy, even for those who aren't great with a needle and thread. Basically, a Minnie Mouse costume comes down to three easy components: clothing, make-up and accessories.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Red dress or red skirt and shirt
- Three pieces of 22 cm (8.5 inch) x 28 cm (11 inch) white felt
- Hot glue gun
- Mouse ears
- Red bow
- Black Halloween makeup
- Red lipstick
- Fluffy white mittens
- Yellow heels, yellow crocs or yellow spray paint and old shoes.
Begin with Minnie's clothing. She wears a red polka dot dress. This may be difficult to find, so enterprising trick-or-treaters may want to go with a red skirt and red shirt. Ensure a proper fit. For added authenticity, cut some white polka dots out of felt and hot glue them onto the outfit.
Try a pair of crocs, or spray paint an old pair of shoes to replicate Minnie's bright yellow shoes. Although Minnie wears heels, trick-or-treaters will want to steer clear of uncomfortable shoes. If yellow heels are a must for you, try online retailers for this rare colour.
Use a lot of mascara and paint a mouse's face to create Minnie's make-up look. Use black face paint to darken your nose and add whiskers on your cheeks. Bright red lipstick adds some fun to the costume.
Find a pair of huge mouse ears at your local costume store or an online retailer. A red bow covered in white dots should fit right between them. Lastly, purchase a pair of big, fluffy white mittens for that finishing touch do round off the costume with Minnie's great accessories.
