The hardest part of this cute Homemade Cindy Lou Who Halloween Costume is finding all the pieces to make it as authentic as possible and still remaining within budget. If you start early enough most items can be found at a second hand store or borrowed from friends/family.

The key pieces are the plaid dress is used to give the table cloth look with a plastic plate filled with goodies attached with Velcro and the red Christmas cape; used a red cape from a previous costume and just added the fur….

Most challenging was the hair, my daughter is not blonde but with the right touches she clearly is a “Who”…because her hair is very thin and fine I did not want to damage her hair with a lot of teasing so I just piled a few hair rollers in a pyramid on top of the head and covered with her own hair.

The completed costume was achieved with the final touches, black furry slippers, red stockings, pink gloves, string of red beads for the choker, red ribbons for the hair and the head band complete with cup of coco, candy and cookie!

My daughter wanted a DIY Cindy Lou Who Child Halloween Costume for Halloween this year. I knew it had been done few few times with the everyday dress but we decided to do a take on the dress at the final feast. I found the perfect fabrics, consulted with my "client" on how the dress should look, and went to work. I made sure it was super full with lots of under skirts.

I made a caplet and mittens similar to the ones in the movie. For the hair my daughter has black hair so I had to go with a wig. I took two wigs sewed them together crown to crown added a bit of a darker honey blonde on top of it all and then sewed in curly ends. I got the top to stand up with fabric placed inside. We had tried a plastic cup but it was uncomfortable and would fall from side to side.

For the make-up we gave her false eye lash tips and a little blush on her cheeks and nose.

My daughter had been wanting to be Cindy Lou who for the last two years, so this year I went all out and made her dress and cape. She loved it so much she wants to wear the outfit for Christmas as well...

I started off with a pattern for an A-line dress, I made some adjustments, lined the skirt portion and added some netting between the layers so it would stay puffed out.

For the cape, I made a red poncho type design just long enough to match the bottom of the dress. I found some fur trim and used that for the hood as well as the pom poms.

The hair is all fake, I braided the fake hair into her own hair to bring the braids on up. For the top portion I covered a Styrofoam cup with both her hair and the fake ponytail to give it more volume and height.

My daughter's school had a Christmas in October party. She wanted to dress in a Cindy Lou Who costume.

I purchased a child's wig and hair extensions. I braided the wig, hot glued the extensions to a Styrofoam cone then glued the cone to the top of the wig.

The outfit I made for a Christmas party last year so I didn't have to remake an outfit. She was the hit of the party!!
