This Homemade Grinch Halloween Costume Idea was the perfect costume for me! Not only do I love the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, but I love homemade Halloween costumes so I was up for the challenge of making this one as realistic as possible.

I found some great faux fur fabric on amazon which was the PERFECT olive green. I used the fabric to sew pants as form fitting as possible to look like Grinch legs. I also used the fabric to make his signature hands with the long fingers and as hair peaking out of the bottom of the Santa hat. I found some white fur at the fabric store, used to make the top of his elf shoes and some bells for the point of the toe.

I made a Santa jacket to fit my little frame, stuffed a pillow in my pants for his larger belly, and that completed the outfit! Most importantly though was the face! I purchased yellow contacts, long eyelashes and a prosthetic Who Nose from FX Warehouse. My friend is an artist and she was able to apply the nose to my face and paint it to look JUST like the Grinch! I have never had more fun on Halloween! Hope you like it.
