How to Make a Yeti Costume

Updated February 21, 2017

Costumes are a unique way to celebrate events, and give people the opportunity to dress up. Choosing a yeti costume will make you stand out from the crowd, and be a scary addition to a party. Although you might get a bit hot inside the thick fur of the coat, you will look cool as Bigfoot -- a famous yeti. Making a yeti costume can be achieved on a budget, using simple techniques.

Gather together all the items you need to create the costume. Rummage at second-hand clothes stores to get an old long-sleeved T-shirt and a pair of trousers for the base of the costume. Head to a costume shop to get a gorilla face mask.

Stretch out the faux-fur fabric onto a flat surface. Do the same with the T-shirt and trousers.

Use the scissors to cut pieces of fur that fit the shape of the clothing so the entire surface is covered. For example, make large squares for the front and back of the T-shirt, and then fill in the gaps using strips of fur.

Stick the fur to the clothing using fabric glue. Do one side of the T-shirt and trousers at a time, before turning them over. Follow the instructions on the glue so that you use it correctly to allow the fur to bond to the clothing.

Leave the fur to dry, and then turn the clothes over and stick fur to the other side. Stick the fur to the clothing using fabric glue on the other side of the T-shirt and trousers, and then leave this layer of glue to dry.

Put the yeti costume together. Dress yourself in the furry clothing and then complete the look by putting on the black socks, brown wig and gorilla mask.


If you can't find a gorilla mask, use face paints instead.
