My two sons are currently obsessed with the movie Monster's Inc so my mom and I decided to make them Sulley and Mike Wazowski costumes. For both costumes we used fleece fabric. We matched the colors as close as we could but Sulley's purple spots were hard to find. We ended up using fabric paint and different sized circle stencils to make the spots.

We simply sponge painted them on and let it dry before we cut the fabric. Neither of us are super experienced so we used patterns to guide us in the overall construction of the outfits. For Sulley we used a dragon costume pattern and Mike we used a pumpkin pattern. We altered each one to get them to look like the characters. We used felt for most of the facial features. We also found a plastic hard hat at the local party store and spray painted it blue.
Then we constructed the Monster’s Inc symbol out of felt and hot glued it to the hat. For Mike, I was really lucky to be able to find a shirt and a pair of pants close in color to wear under the costume. They were from the girls department but he will never know.

My sons we super excited to dress up as their favorite characters. I love to call them my little monsters so this Monster's Inc Couple Costume suited them well. Happy Halloween!!

My 2 year old son loves monsters inc. and loves to run around growling and scaring like a monster.. I'm not really good on a sewing machine but I think I can do it. my son is going to be sully and I think I might make a mike costume for myself.. he looks pretty easy to make since its a pumpkin costume.. good thing halloween is 2 months away.. should give me enough time!

Hi there, my daughter's birthday will be this May and she's been asking me to make a Sully's costume for her. I am a beginner sewer, but am willing to have a go in transforming her into Sully! I've even bought blue fleece already.
Could you help me with the pattern, please? My email is

Thank you for your posting and your beautiful idea.

Cheers, Mara+Luana

Love it!

My son has become a huge fan of Monster's University. He wants to be Mike for Halloween. How did you do the feet? Did you have a pattern for the facial features? If you could email me (or post below) so I can pick your brain that would be awesome. Thanks a bunch.

How I constructed feet...
by: Carolyn

The feet I just free handed with brown paper. I drew a paw shape for the foot and drew triangle type shapes for claws. The foot was made with fleece and the claws felt. I stitched the claws together and stuffed them with pillow fluff. Then for the paw pieces I had them inside out. The top of the paw had three slits cut in it and the claws were pinned and stitched in those slits. After stitching all around I turned it in and stuffed it like a pillow. I also put a cuff at the top of the foot and elastic on the bottom to help keep it on their feet.

Hope this helps!
