My son was born with bilateral congenital cataracts, and had them removed at 6 and 7 weeks old. As a result he has to wear glasses. Naturally, I wanted to go with something that played off of that. I thought about Harry Potter, but just really didn’t feel it. As I thought of other cute characters with glasses Simon Chipmunk came to mind.
I knew exactly what I needed for this Homemade Simon Chipmunk Baby Costume because I used to watch them all the time. I went out and bought a child’s turtleneck (it was a girl turtleneck, so I sewed the frills over). I bought iron on, DIY decals, for the shirt’s “S.” For his hat, gloves, and feet, I bought a cheap teddy bear that somewhat matched his stuffed toy chipmunks and cut it apart. I had to stitch together a couple pieces to cover the top of his head with.
Overall, the entire outfit cost about $20-25. Not bad, considering he was guaranteed not to look like anyone else (unless Simon Chipmunk showed up)!
Comments for Coolest Simon Chipmunk Baby Costume 7
My nephews were dressed in the Chipmunks costume for Halloween. I bought red, green, and blue long-sleeved turtlenecks from the thrift store. I already had the yellow felt for the A on Alvin's shirt and the red baseball cap. Then we used Harry Potter glasses for Simon.
The shoes we got at Wall-Mart for $5/pair. Not too bad! An our Theodore provided his own chipmunk cheeks! We were on a budget and this proved to be a very big hit, although when the boys weren't together, they weren't able to be recognized as easily! This year, we are re-using the red cap and bought a green one for $2 at Wall-Mart so that my nephew "Alvin" can be Mario and his brother can be Luigi.

Homemade Alvin and the Chipmunks Group Costume
This is our Homemade Alvin and the Chipmunks Group Costume. We bought long turtle necks from Walmart and used fabric paint to put our letters on. We had shorts on under our turtle necks. Then we got glasses for Simon, and hats of the other two. Really easy and cheap!!
This Homemade Alvin and the Chipmunks Group Costume is super easy! Just used regular t-shirts, and foam with self adhesive strips for the letters. We found ears at the Dollar store and I found a cheap red hat to use for Alvin. Leggings and tube socks helped unify our costumes.
