How to Make a Casper Halloween Costume

Casper is a friendly ghost appearing in cartoons, comic books and a feature film. Unlike other ghosts, Casper is a lovable figure with big eyes and a large, friendly smile. Due to his unique nature and appearance, Casper is an easily recognisable figure that children and adults can enjoy dressing as on Halloween. You can create a Casper costume at home with items you most likely already own.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • White shoes

  1. 1

    Place a white pillowcase over your head. Mark off spots for your mouth and eyes. Remove the pillowcase from your head. Draw two large eye holes and a large smiling mouth with a black marker. Cut inside the lines of the black marker to create the holes for the mouth and eyes.

  2. 2

    Draw a cartoon nose and a set of eyebrows on the pillowcase. You can also exaggerate the outlines around the eyes and mouth. Cut off any excess length on the pillow case, but keep it long enough to cover your neck and collarbone.

  3. 3

    Fold a large white sheet in half. Draw a semicircle at the top of the fold, in the centre of the sheet. Draw the semicircle large enough for half your head to fit through. Cut out the semicircle. Test the size of the hole by pulling the sheet on and poking your head through it. Cut two slits on each side of the costume for your arms to fit through.

  4. 4

    Dress in a white long-sleeved shirt, trousers, gloves or mittens and shoes. Pull the pillowcase over your head, then put the sheet on. Slip your arms through the slits. You're Casper now, ready for a happy Halloween.

Tips and warnings

  • If you would rather leave your arms inside the sheet, don't cut the arm holes or wear the mittens or gloves.
  • Avoid tripping by cutting off any excess length from the bottom of the sheet.
