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.

The Grinch was a Santa suit pattern and then we made green fur pants and gloves and a small piece for chest hair. We then painted his face green and added black detail lines.
Cyndi we found a fabric that was so close to her dress in the movie and made it out of a pattern. Then we made a red robe with the pom poms. We found some pink mittens and red tights. I used crayola air clay because it is light and made the donuts and candy and cocoa cup. I glued the food to a plastic plate and attached it to her dress then attached the mug and candy to a hair clip to put on her head.
My daughter's hair was not long enough so I bought fake hair and braided it and attached it to her own hair with a rubber band. She looked so cute!

Homemade Grinch Who Stole Christmas Costume
First I bought a Sailor t-shirt at the Dollar store for this Homemade Grinch Who Stole Christmas Costume. I had the gray dress pants I sewed at the knee, to give a dress shorts look. We also had the dress shoes, and bowtie. We used green tights, green thermal shirt, and green gloves to present his arms, legs and hands.
Sprayed his hair green, and painted his face green. Richie was only one year old and, loves this costume. He did not cry when he saw his face and hair green, he loved it. He had the time of his life. Halloween is his favorite time of year, and loves scary things like spiders and masks. Nightmare before Xmas is his favorite movie too.
The head piece was a cat hood that I cut the ears off and sewed together. The glove covers came with the cat outfit. The suit was fabric that I found on sale at our local "mart" for $1.50 a yard (bought all they had). The body suit is the color you see, the head and gloves were carefully spray painted and combed to get the shape right. I love the lederhosen (bought from a restaurant supply for a couple of bucks!) because it’s when he’s the meanest and doesn’t have to be nice yet!
