I made a Cheshire Cat costume for the event we have once a year here in Germany. It is called AnimagiC. It is a cosplay festival. My friends and I wanted to create a cosplay for us all together so we decided to do the characters out of Alice in Wonderland. Everyone of us has chosen a character. I chose the Cheshire cat and today I finished the last parts of it. It was pretty expensive. I bought material for about $50, a wig for $15 and the makeup for again $15. I did not know that this costume will be that expensive but I had a lot of fun sewing it. I think I have got a great costume now.

I started up sewing the pullover out of streching material. Before I did that I cut the material in the middle so I could dye half of it pink and the other half violet. Unfortunetly the pink is not that dark and not as pink as it was supposed to be but still I think it looks good. Out of the dyed part I made a pullover and strech pants. The skirt is out of fake leather. The furry parts are out of fur material and it's realy warm underneath. The ears are also made out of the fur and sewed to the wig.

Coolest Cheshire Cat Costume 6

For this Cheshire Cat costume I started with making the face as wide and big as the character in the movie. Materials used are: fabrics (purple and pink), foam roll, pillow stuffing for the tail, pretty much everything was sewed and put together with my designing and cutting and my mom's sewing skills!

We cut strips of purple and sewed it on top of pink fabric suit. The tail is stuffed with batting and is a little heavy but I needed it big and soft like. We attached nylon string so it could be off the ground and held up. The face was made from some foam and fabric cut to mimic the 3D shape of the cats outer area. The ears and top of head are flat but looks great from the front view. We left a slit for the eyes between the nose and eyes of the cat.

All and all we spent about a week and a couple of days on this thing. My wife had her heart set to be the mad hatter so I had to match her of course.

Homemade Caterpillar and Cheshire Cat Costumes

Homemade Caterpillar and Cheshire Cat Costumes

This year for Halloween, my boyfriend and I dressed in Homemade Caterpillar and Cheshire Cat Costumes.


My costume was very easy: I bought 3 pairs of striped tights, one pair I wore as regular tights. With another pair I made a top by cutting a hole in the crotch and holes in the feet for my fingers. I cut the legs off the third pair of tights and stuffed one of the legs to make a tail. I sewed up the top portion to make a cat hat and glued felt on to make the ears stand out. I also bought a pair of pink furry boot covers.

My boyfriend's costume was a bit more time- consuming. I bought some fabric and polyfill stuffing and sewed on the stomach. For the arms I used panty hose stuffed with the polyfil and used the fabric to sew sleeves around them; I sewed gloves on the ends. I made a hood with the fabric and antennae with pipe cleaners. It was a fun project and we both had people asking us for pictures all night!

where did you get your boot covers

Smile and boot covers
by: CJ

I made the smile out of hot pink cardboard and glued it to a shish-kabob wooden stick, that was probably the easiest part. The fur boot covers were on Amazon for about $5.

tights

Where did you get the tights and how did you make the cat hat? Out of what part of tights?

Tights and cat hat
by: CJ

I ordered the tights online, I can't remember which website but there are a lot of specialty hosiery sites with striped tights. I think black and pink striped tights would look good too. The hat was made from the crotch area of a pair of tights, I cut both legs off and sewed up the leg holes into points to make a little cat hat and used pink felt on the ears. You can't see my tail in this picture but I stuffed on of the legs I cut off with polyfil and pinned it on the back- it looked really cool!

Cat hat
by: CJ

I made the hat out of the crotch part of a pair of tights. I cut the legs off and sewed up the leg holes into points to look like ears, and glued on pink felt triangles. I stuffed one of the legs that were cut off full of polyfil and pinned it on the back as a tail (can't see very well in the picture, but it looked great!)

I do have a bunch but I don't think I can add anymore to this page. Too bad they didn't have the multiple picture upload option last year. :(

Thank You!

You have inspired me to buy stripped tights for my 10 year boy for the upcoming Steampunk Alice in Wonderland Cleveland Comic-Con. Thank you!

Coolest Homemade Cheshire Cat Halloween Toddler Costume 51

This is Isabelle, and she grins just as cute as the Cheshire Cat in the movie. Her sister was Alice, so we figured this was only fitting for her to be the Cheshire Cat. She loved it, her little tail was dragging on the ground.

This Homemade Cheshire Cat Halloween Toddler Costume was my first sewing project, and relatively easy. I bought the pattern set at Walmart for the pumpkin/ladybug/bumble bee costume, made a few changes and viola! Cheshire Cat here we are! I designed her ears and tail all on my own, into the wee hours of the morning as my creativity was flowing. I had fun making her costume, and her sister's, and I will be creating costumes for every Halloween if I have the option to. I love that I can show my daughters how much I love them in this way, and I am glad that they can make people smile when they are wearing their costumes, for that is what life is about, and not the gory, gross Halloween costumes and things that are out there.
