I was able to convince my two year old son that he had to be a Willy Wonka Oompa Loompa for Halloween this year. I showed him the moves and he loved the idea, on most days.
For this homemade Oompa Loompa Halloween costume, I purchased a large pair of girls Capri white jeans two sizes too big and rolled them up for the pants. I stuffed rolled socks down his pants to add the puffiness to the sides. I bought a girls brown long sleeved top, white girls knee highs and a white turtle neck. I hand painted the brown stripes on the socks and turtleneck collar and cuffs with fabric paint.
I made brown and white pompoms and fastened them to his shoes. I bought 2 yards of large elastic and sewed the “suspenders” to the pants. I made the buttons out of brown felt. I dressed him first then sprayed his hair a florescent green. Yes, that’s his hair; he missed a few haircuts in preparation for this costume.
I got toddler white gloves. I applied the orange face paint and white eyebrows. I painted a Styrofoam egg gold and rolled in gold glitter. I added a large lollipop and voila an Oompa Loompa.
The best thing was that my son LOVED it. He would do the dance for everyone. The day after Halloween, he wanted to put the homemade Oompa Loompa Halloween costume back on again; I did not.

My costume is a homemade Ooompa Loompa Halloween costume. One day I was just walking around the good-will thinking what should I be for Halloween? Not sure why but an Ommpa Lommpa came to mind, then I started to look around. I found in a random spot a pair of white overall shorts, I knew then that this what I was going to be.
I started out with a pair of white overall shorts, then went and bought a brown turtle neck, those are the basics. Then for the leggings I bought white tights and colored brown strips on them with brown permanent marker. For the arm cuffs I used a pair of white socks, cut them to size then colored stripes on them. The collar around my neck is a headband that I colored stripes on as well.
My shoes are just brown moccasins with brown yarn pom-poms tied to them. On my face I put orange face paint on, then covered it with a bronzer. My hair was done by a hair stylist, the top is all teased with a curl on top and the back and sides are all curled in a complete circle. Then sprayed green to top it all off it was really fun and looked great!!
I asked my 3 year old what he was going to be for Halloween. He told me an "Oompa Loompa!" I immediately said "Oh yeah?" like where am I going to get a costume like this? After learning you can't buy a pattern for this I had drew (with a sharpie) on the fabric the shape of the jumper. Then sewed the edges together and made straps.
I could not find brown turtlenecks so I bought brown shirts and sewed cuffs and a neck on it. Then painted with brown craft paint. I also painted the stockings.
I bought styrofoam balls and painted them and hot glued them to the brown shoes.
The face paint is Kryolan orange and white. And spray painted their hair green.
These homemade Oompa Loompa Halloween costumes were a hit!
