I came up with my costume because my sons’ father has wanted him to be chucky since he was born and I figured this year we better do it before he gets too big. We started by looking for a Chucky costume at the Halloween store and the only one they had was a horrible depiction in my eyes and had a mask with it,so not really artistic at all I decided I would make my own and though I’m not artistic I am a bit of a perfectionist so I had to have it as close as I could get it.
I had a pair of overalls which I got fabric from my mother to make the cuffs on the pants, so I got as close as I could to what Chuckys’ looked like with acrylic paints mixed with medium and painted the lines on the fabric to match as good as I could. I also bought a white long-sleeved shirt and painted the lines on that as well. After heat seeting all of my painted parts, I sewed the cuffs onto the bottoms of the pants and hot glued red buttons to cover existing ones.
I Googled the good guy words in images and printed off the best one I could find for the pocket. Then I took an exacto knife and made a stencil with a phonebook cover and colored it in on the pants with a fabric marker and took a brush and carefully painted in the lines with that to make it pop more. I also Googled a picture of a pattern for the designs on the bibs, printed it out onto iron-on paper and took the exacto knife to cut around the edges as good as I could and that’s how I got the design on there.
For the shoes, my Mom bought me a six dollar pair of white canvas shoes and I put duct tape on the places I needed to stay white and used the paints to paint the shoes red. Then I took a thin red sharpie and wrote good guys down the shoelaces.
For his face I used make-up and stitches tattoos I had. That didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped on account of our son not cooperating a bit, actually throwing a full on fit. For his hair I had bought some marroon colored hairspray. That is how I made my Chucky costume for my two year old son, Eli.
Keep in mind that I am not artistic at all, I was just determined. My friends and family all loved this Chucky costume and it did real well on social media.
Simple Yet Scary Chucky and His Bride Mother and Son Costumes
I have always loved the chucky movies they made and I always said that when I had a kid I was going to dress them up as my little chucky doll and finally this year I did it!
I went and got older style of overalls and a striped velour sweater and got him some chucks just like in the movie. I hair sprayed his hair and dyed it red and drew stitches all over his handsome little face. I even added some grusome wound tattoos to his face to spice it up a little and doused him in blood. When he looked in the mirror he scared himself!!!
For my niece’s bride costume we got her an old wedding dress and she added her own modern flare with her boots and tiara and covered her in blood also. For her makeup we added the dramatic black makeup/lipstick just like Jennifer in the movie and we had to add the glorious beauty mark :)
This year was such a blast for our costumes. Everyone that has seen them couldn’t stop telling us how creative it was and how much better ours looked vs the ones that you can buy at the stores! There really wasn’t anything hard about doing the costumes but I think for me the hardest part was trying to get my 2 year old to sit still while we were doing his hair and makeup! Who knew little boys hated hair spray so much?! :D
It sounded like a murder scene in our house just trying to prepare him to go outside with his Chucky costume. LOL. Needless to say suckers are our lifesaver. The funniest part about his Chucky costume is that it was gruesome and scary looking, but then when he smiled at you, you really didn’t know how to feel about it because the smile made the costume even a bit more disturbing lol!
Overall we are having a blast with our custom costumes!
Creepy Toddler Chucky Doll Costume
My grandson is 13 months old and as soon as he started toddling around we knew he had to be Chucky for Halloween, something about his walk said he would make the perfect Chucky… and he did!!
To make the Chucky costume, I first found temporary tattoos online of the stitches and cuts for his face. I only paid $2 for them and they were perfect, though we were in a panic because they didn’t arrive until Halloween morning. We found his shoes and blue cordaroy overalls at a thrift store… only paid $8 for both. The shoes were black and I painted them red and white to look like Chucky shoes. I hand painted all the decorations on his overalls also.
We never could find a striped shirt that we liked or look like Chucky’s shirt so we bought a white onesie and hand painted the stripes on that as well. We finally got all the painting done about 30 minutes before trick or treating time, lol, we had to blow dry the shirt!
My daughter put the tattoos on him while he was sleeping and then we got him dressed in his Chucky costume and she sprayed his hair with orange Halloween hair spray.
We took him trick or treating and had quite a variety of reactions to him… some were actually scared of him!! Most were just amazed by how well he pulled this Chucky costume off… he was a great Chucky! I’m of course bias, but I think we nailed it on this one!!
Hope you all enjoy this Chucky costume as much as we did!
Chuckys Bride Toddler Costume
I made Delilah a Chucky costume on her 1st Halloween and that’s where the idea came from to dress her up as the bride.
I bought fabric for the dress and sewed it all by hand! That was the most challenging part! cutting the shapes and putting the dress together. I bought black boots, did her makeup added fake boobs :) touched up the wig with sharpies to make it look real.
She got a lot of compliments and lots of people asked if they could take a picture. Her eyes is what completed this look. Just perfect! I had fun creating her costume.
