  1. 1

    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.

  2. 2

    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.

  3. 3

    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.

  4. 4

    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.
