Homemade Little Bo Peep and Sheep Costume
This homemade Little Bo Peep and sheep costume was made to be funny. Normally, Little Bo Peep would be a girl and the sheep the boy. But in our case, we decided switching roles - would make it that much better.
Ben plays the role of Little Bo Peep, strutting a pink skirt and hat with blonde braids. The skirt was made of fabric bought from a craft store, and was sewed with pleats. His shirt was just a white tee he had laying around, but we cut a V-neck and added a bow to make it a little dressy. Then, we took the pink hat from another costume (Strawberry Shortcake) and added hand made yarn braids with ribbon. We found an old cane and used that for his staff.
Jen is his white and black sheep. This costume required white felt material and cotton balls. All put together with hot glue! The ears were made with a head band, and white and black felt. Then, to end the costume, black leggings, black gloves and black boots were all that was needed!
So, overall this homemade Little Bo Peep and sheep costume was easy to make and we got quite a few compliments!

Homemade Little Bo Peep & Sheep Costume
My wife wanted to go as Little Bo Peep, and of course, I would get the lucky role, as the Sheep. Originally I was going to make the Sheep costume out of cotton balls. But after reading the warning page on this site, I decided there had to be a safer method. I decided to make my costume out of bathroom rugs.
It took four large rugs to make this. The sheep's head was built around a ball cap, with the nose cut out of a spray-paint can lid. Due to the rubber backing on the rug, the pants ended up being heavy and were hard to keep on. This was easily solved with suspenders, worn under the top. I was afraid that this costume was going to be extremely hot, but, amazingly, I kept cool. I did wear long johns under the pants as, without them, it would have been an uncomfortable night!
The costume was very comfortable, besides the embarrassment. But I wore it proudly, and our homemade Little Bo Peep and Sheep costumes were the hit of the party.

We got so many great responses to thisHomemade Little Bo Peep and Her Sheep Couple Costume.
My Bo Peep costume consisted of a couple of different store-bought costumes that I mixed and matched to create my perfect one. They do sell complete Bo Peep costumes but I wanted to create one that was unique to me. The real handmade joy, though, came in making the sheep costume.
As usual, he waited until the last minute to put this together so it does have the potential to look even more awesome with a bit more TLC. It still turned out great, though. Materials we used were: - white hooded sweatshirt - white pants - pillow stuffing - spray glue - construction paper.
The construction of the sheep costume was pretty simple. Simply spray the sweatshirt with glue and apply the pillow stuffing. We discovered this is easiest done if the shirt is hanging. He then made ears and a ribbon out of construction paper.
I started out wanting to be BoPeep and so I started making my costume, and found that I wasn't much for sewing, so inevitably I gave that task to my mom. She made my daughter's costume with clearance fabric from Walmart ($10). I got a cane and wrapped it with pink ribbon for the staph. Then I got a sweater for me (we live in Colorado and it usually snows on Halloween), and about 15 packages of cotton balls, and fabric glue.
We were a hit in our homemade BoPeep and sheep costume, but if I had to do it over, I would find some way to make it not so heavy. You wouldn't think cotton balls would be that heavy - but with thousands of them they get pretty heavy.
