As Disney girls through and through we knew that we’d have to do a Disney themed costume at some point. Being that our favorite movie is Aladdin, my actual name is Jazmin and Julie’s favorite animal is a tiger, we knew an Aladdin Halloween costume would be perfect! When we first came up with this idea, we knew we’d need an Aladdin. Seeing that my boyfriend Austin is tall, skinny and quite the trickster, we knew he’d be the perfect street rat.
The biggest concern for Princess Jasmine’s costume was finding parts that matched. After many hours of searching I stumbled upon the perfect pair of baby blue harem pants at Charlotte Russe. Once I found the perfect pants I knew I needed a more perfect top. Interestingly enough, I couldn’t find a top that worked until I shopped the swimsuit section of H&M.
Although both parts were ordered online they magically matched perfectly! My hair is short and I knew I needed to get some luscious locks so it was off to the wig store. I found clip in extensions that matched my hair color exactly and just happened to be on sale. With the addition of a blue ribbon and some princess-looking gold accessories, my costume was complete.
With a pair of tiger ears and tail already in our possession, we were happy that the work on the Raja costume was already underway. Since Raja is such a fierce and sassy character, Julie wanted her costume to reflect just that. After trying on about 10 corsets at the Spirit of Halloween store, we found one that fit just right (which of course meant that it was really really tight). A tutu (found at a consignment shop for $6) was added for a girly touch along with fishnets and black booties for some edgy flair.
You’d think finding orange paint at Halloween time would be easy, but you’d be wrong. Julie eventually found some at Party City and cleared the entire shelf. Knowing that the body paint would make or break the costume, there was a lot of pressure to make sure it turned out well. Thankfully Jazmin could use her art school skills to finish out the look. These skills were used to create the perfect smokey cat eye along with authentic tiger print nails.
Much like the real Aladdin, Austin needed a little bit of help to get his life together. After finding a pair of white mom workout pants at the thrift store and a vest made out of what we can only describe as an old purple velvet woman’s top from the 20s, the main pieces to his costume were solidified. His brown sash was craftily constructed from Julie’s retired brown leggings. Austin ended up pulling some of his weight by making his hat out of felt and construction paper. I guess street rats aren’t completely useless.
The costume was a hit and we got an overwhelming amount of compliments at our Halloween party. When we first hatched the idea, we didn’t know it would be executed so well! With a little bit of hard work, perseverance and creativity, we were able to put together a group costume we will never forget.
Coolest Aladdin and Abu Couple Costume
I decided that the Disney Prince and Princess costume, while adorable, was a tad overdone so I wanted to make a Princess Jasmine and Aladdin costume. So, I convinced my boyfriend that he should be Aladdin…and I would be his best buddy, side kick, his monkey Abu!
All the costumes are handmade, and other than having some odd proportions, wasn’t too tricky too made. The hats are just margarine containers with felt glued on them, the vest for Aladdin was easy enough, so were the pants! We just stuffed them to make sure they were poofy and he was good to go. His costume was easy enough to make, anyone could do it (six pack abs optional)
Abu’s costume was a bit trickier just because I wanted to have a cute, form fitting monkey costume, so away we went. It has lace ups on the sides, as well as a corset back to accommodate people of all shapes and sizes. The monkey ears and tail were bought from a Halloween store for cheap, as was the material used to make the dress and vest. Not too shabby at all.
Like I say, who needs a princess when you’ve got an adorable, rapscallion monkey?
Every Aladdin Needs a Carpet Couple Halloween Costume
My wife and I wanted to dress up as a couple for Halloween, but we didn’t want to do your typical couples costume. Everyone has seen the typical Jasmine and Aladdin Costume, but have you ever seen Aladdin and Carpet? We made a trip to the local fabric store and found the right colors for Aladdin’s costume. We decided to go with the “Street Rat” look. Found the right colors and found a pattern for the vest and the “MC Hammer” pants.
The tough part was finding a costume for Carpet. We found a blanket that had a classic pattern. We decided to use 2 blankets and sew them together. We left an area to put your legs through and then left the top open with string to close the top once inside. For the tassels we used yarn. I wore gold cloves and socks to camouflage my feet with the tassels. The last little touches that brought the costume together was a monkey stuffed animal with a vest and hat to be Abu, a loaf of bread, a phone/stereo with the Aladdin soundtrack playing and a disguised skateboard for carpet to ride around on.
For the skateboard, we put 3 crates stacked with a piece of flat wood on top of the skateboard. We then covered everything with blue fabric so it would give the look of us being in the sky. I layed down on my skateboard contraption and then Aladdin sat on top of me. Then we rolled around and the costume is complete. We entered a contest at work but there was an issue.
There were 2 contests, an individual contest and a group/department contest. We did not qualify for the individual contest because there were 2 of us and we didn’t qualify for the group/department contest because we weren’t big enough to be considered a group. Everyone at work said that we should have won and that we were robbed. Hope you enjoy making your own Aladdin Costume.
Coolest Abu and Aladdin on a Flying Carpet Kids Halloween Costumes
Here are Abu and Aladdin on a Flying Carpet kids Halloween costumes from the Disney movie. The Abu outfit was made up of faux fur, I used wire in the tail to give it shape. His hat was made up of stiff felt and a glue gun, and a elastic to keep it on her head.
The flying carpet was made from a styrofoam sheet with a hole cut in it for his body. Then I covered it in a material that looked like a rug. I added some doilies and some plastic coins. I had to put a rope from the front to around the back of his neck to keep it up in the air, so I glued a couple of fake snakes to try to hide the line. I used styrofoam as well for the fake legs on top of the carpet, as well to make the pointy shoes. Hope you all get some ideas from this!
Fun Zombie Aladdin Homemade Halloween Costume
I was looking around Goodwill (my favorite place to come up with a Halloween costumes) and as soon as I walked in I saw this awesome purple vest. I immediately came up with Aladdin costume. I then found the perfect pair of pants. I went home and started to put the creative thoughts together. I needed a Genie lamp, an abu, and a fez hat.
My dog has a stuffed monkey toy that I thought I could use Unfortunately, the face was bitten off. Later that night I was watching “the Walking Dea” and the idea came to me. I could be a Zombie Aladdin! It was perfect, the chewed up monkey could be a zombie Abu. I got the rest of the accessories I needed and zombie make up and blood.
I made a small fez and vest for Abu from the same material as my vest. I put everything together and it came out great! People loved my costume and thought it was very original. I was trying to find a zombie Jasmine all night..but no luck.
Quick DIY Aladdin Costume
Here is one very simple Aladdin costume. I made this for children’s play at school, but it could be used for Halloween, too. All you need to make are baggy pants, vest and a bel. For baggy pants, you should tailor the fabric as shown on photo bellow, twice. Easy. For belt, use one wide piece of fabric and wrap it around his waist. When you make vest, make sure front parts don’t overlap.
