'The Incredibles' home-made fancy dress

Updated April 17, 2017

"The Incredibles" is a popular Disney/Pixar movie about a family of superheroes. Many people, especially families, like to dress up as The Incredibles for Halloween, conventions or fancy dress parties. Although it's not hard to find Incredibles costumes for sale in stores, it's also easy and fairly inexpensive to make your own costumes at home.


Buy a tight-fitting, red, long-sleeved T-shirt and long red leggings. Cut out a piece of black fabric that is 2.5 cm (1 inch) wide and long enough to cover the collar of the T-shirt. Glue or sew this piece of fabric to the collar.

Using black construction paper, cut out a circle that is about 12 cm (5 inches) in diameter. Use orange construction paper to line the outside of the black circle. (The orange layer should be about 2.5 cm (1 inch) wide.) Cut out a lower case "i" from yellow construction paper and glue it in the centre of the black circle. Glue this black circle on the front of the T-shirt.

Buy a pair of black underwear briefs (or a Speedo or bikini bottom) to wear over the leggings.


To make a mask, cover both of your eyebrows with a piece of paper, then cover the paper with duct tape. Cover the entire area round your eyes with duct tape, leaving holes open for your eyes. Peel the duct tape off your face, making sure it stays in the shape of your face, and round off the edges. Spray paint the mask black and secure it to your face using rubber cement.

Wear tall black boots and long black gloves.

Cut out a piece of orange fabric that is 5 cm (2 inches) wide and long enough to wrap around your waist. Tie this orange piece of fabric around your waist as a belt.


For Mr. Incredible and Dash, dye or spray your hair blond and slick it back. For a Violet costume, dye or spray your hair black and part it on the left. If you're dressing as Mrs. Incredible, dye or spray your hair red and part it on the left. To make a Jack-Jack costume, dye the hair orange and use hairspray to stick it straight up in the air.
