DIY Minnie Mouse Costume

I love dressing up for halloween but try to come up with cute but easy to put together costumes.  This DIY Minnie Mouse is definitely one of the easiest ones that I’ve made and you only need a few pieces to pull it all together.

I was big on Halloween as a kid and teenager; I LOVED picking out my costume and trick-or-treating. And even through college and my early 20s, my girlfriends and I loved dressing up as some kind of theme, my favorite being Harajuku girls. We went all out with our outfits, hair, and makeup—it was epic. But this was before Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku girls, so we got a lot of confused looks. LOL! We didn’t care, though; we thought we looked awesome. In the past few years, Halloween has been less about costumes and more about passing out candy to the neighborhood kids. But this year, my daughter is old enough to be excited to dress up for Halloween and I’m so loving that! OK, she doesn’t quite understand Halloween just yet, but dressing up as her favorite characters is still very exciting for her. I wanted to dress up with her and, since Minnie Mouse is her favorite character in the world, I had to dress up as Minnie.

Although you can get plenty of pre-made costumes, I wanted the costume to be a little bit more me, so I ended up getting a red tutu and Minnie ears, and I had the makings of a cute Minnie Mouse!

I stopped by the crafts store to pick up some felt to make polka dots on my tutu and got to work! And, seriously, this is the easiest DIY ever. Let’s be real: I don’t have time for extensive DIYs, so this took me all of 10 minutes to do.

I used a mug as a stencil, and then just cut out all the circles, used tacky glue, and stuck them on the skirt.

I added the Minnie ears, a black top, tights, and, of course, my yellow pumps to become Minnie Mouse!

I had fun creating my costume and loved that I could just grab what I had in my closet with a few additional pieces.  I really only had to buy the tutu, mouse ears and felt which was not expensive at all so I was happy to not have to spend a ton of money on my costume!
