My boys love horror movies and asked if I would let them be scary for Halloween. Being an avid horror movie lover myself, I agreed. My eldest twin loves Jason and couldn't wait to be him. I thought that having his twin play Freddy would be a great play on Freddy vs Jason since the twins constantly fight anyways. My youngest son who is 4 likes to be just like his brothers so I chose Chucky for him... Good chucky though as I didnt want him to look scary.
For Jason, I bought the mask and sword. I took old clothes of my son and soaked them in tea and fake blood. I also cut strips and holes into the clothes to make them look more ragged. For Freddy, I bought the red sweater and spray painted stripes on it. I made the glove out of cardboard, tinfoil and a black one size fits all glove. He could move each "blade" individually. I also did all his makeup using latex and face paint.
Chucky's costume is all handmade. I bought all the fabric from the fabric shop and sewed the overalls first. I glued the good guys onto the pocket to make it look more authenic. I couldnt find red shoes so I bought light colored ones and spray painted them red. Then added the white stripes. I added extra layers under his shirt so that he didnt have to wear a sweater and wouldnt get cold. I then dyed his hair red and added some freckles.
This is my 2-year-old son, Blake, wearing a Homemade Chucky Costume we put together based on the serial killing doll from the Child's Play movies, better known as Chucky. My husband and I thought that the store-bought Chucky costumes looked really cheesy, and they don’t make them small enough for two-year-olds (a Chucky costume really does look much more realistic on a toddler because they are closer to being doll-sized).
So we found a striped shirt, some overalls, sprayed his hair orange (which we had let grow out in preparation for Halloween), and dotted freckles on his face with a brown eyeliner pencil; a plastic knife completed the ensemble.
We got so many reactions when we took him trick-or-treating! Everyone knew right away who he was supposed to be and we got so many compliments. One guy, who said he collected Chucky memorabilia, even asked if he could take a picture of him on his mobile phone! My son made the best little Chucky ever!
This year we decided to dress our toddler up as Chucky. While shopping at Target I found a shirt that I thought would make a good Chucky shirt. We also picked up some overalls while we were there. We already had the red shoes. I also found some red felt letters at Michael's to spell out "Good Guys" on his overalls. I used the same red felt to cover his buttons. I was able to easily remove the felt and not ruin the overalls.
Yesterday I got him dressed, sprayed his hair, colored in some freckles, and took some pictures of him as "Good Chucky. Then we added some temporary tattoos to his face to create wounds. We finished it off with a fake knife.
I tell you this Homemade Chucky Costume was a HIT! We had people taking his picture and he was featured in the newspaper. I must say that making this costume felt great I will never buy him a premade costume again.
