My child was having Dr. Suess day at her elementary school and they had to dress up like a character out of a Dr. Suess book. Of course, my daughter wanted to be unique so we opted to create a homemade Dr. Seuss Star-Bellied Sneetches costume.

The arms were basic white leggings from Wal-mart that I had dyed stark yellow. I cut a hole where the crotch would be and put her head through the hole instead. I cut three rectangles for the body and sewed them together. Stuffing was inserted prior to completing the sewing. I had purchased loose yellow feathers from the local craft store and glued them all over the front of the costume with crafting glue. I also purchased a multi-color feather strand boa from the craft store and glued pieces of it around the neck line and bottom.

Lastly, I tied two bracelets with the remaining piece of the boa and put them on her wrist. I finished off the look with two feathers sticking out of her hair and painted the green star on her belly. She was by far the cutest Sneetch ever.

I am going to do something similar. But I am going to dye a leotard and tights and going to buy a skirt and cover it with feathers. My daughter is a tall seven year ols so this makes the costume more simple

Dr. Seuss Costume 11

Things 1 and 2 Costume

Things 1 and 2 Costume

My idea for the Thing 1 and Thing 2 costume came from the book Cat in the Hat, which I read every night to our boys at the time. It was fairly simple to do. We got red sweat suits from our local Goody's Store and white felt and stick on felt lettering from Michaels.

The most difficult part was coming up with the hair. The boys were going through a bald stage so spray painting was out of the question. We live in a fairly isolated area so our only resource was our local party store. While scanning each aisle, my mom and I came upon blue pom-pom hats. We bought them for $2 each, brought them home and I proceeded to do a trim.

Halloween night went off without a hitch which was surprising as the boys had fevers. Despite their grins each had a temperature over 100. What can I say - they're little troopers!

Total Spent: $25 for both
