Once my hubby and I decided we would be Little Red Riding Hood and the big bad wolf I went to work trying to create the costume. I'm a swing-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda girl and I don't really PLAN very well - so this Homemade Big Bad Wolf Costume literally came together a bit at a time.

What I first started with was the faux fur. I knew I would need to sew some legs/arms and a hood of some sort. I am not a seamstress really I just crudely put the pieces together with no pattern. I determined the leg size (which were pretty much just leg warmer'ish by wrapping the fabric around his legs and cutting and sewing (we ducktaped the top of the fabric to his jeans when we were done). The the same with the arms, a basic arm shape with "mitten" shaped fingers.

The key piece that brought the "mask together" was deciding to use a baseball cap as the snout - I glued the fur on the brim with a hot glue gun then I used a foam vision (upside down) for the "bottom" of the snout (my husband's eyes were in the middle so he could see. Then I sewed a hood with ears and a bulk of fur at the neck to wrap around the front and to put over the baseball cap - the other key pieces. I sewed the tongue out of felt, found the granny glasses and nightgown at the thrift store and used gumball eyes for the eyes (found easily at Halloween time).

Voila - the Big Bad wolf disguised as granny!

Fantastic idea of how you made the mask. That gives me a great idea for my son's costume this year. Very cool!

We decided to create Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf Couple Costume — with a twist! We decided it would be cooler to have “Grandma” climbing out of the wolf’s stomach, with Little Red’s help. But we wanted to make sure the arm sticking out of the stomach was “alive” so Kevin needed to make a fake arm for the wolf, and stick his arm through the chest.

My boyfriend bought a fake chest, glued faux fur to it, cut a hole in the center for his arm to stick through, made the fake arm (the hardest part was to get it to hang right) by bending a coat hanger and tying it around his body, sewed fur on some of my old leggings, and bought a scary mask. He painted “Grandma’s” nails for extra effect, slashed up a dress found at good will to be dressed as "Grandma",and painted his eyes dark to blend in with the mask.

I did dark make-up and slashed my leggings and outfit to look like the wolf and I had a fight. I also put some fake blood scratches for effect. We added fake blood to a knife as well.

Homemade Little Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf Couple Halloween Costume

Our costumes came from the idea that little red riding hood was attacked by the wolf after she got to grandma's house & saw him in grandma's clothes. We think this is how things would have looked...the dress was bought & then modified to suit our look more. The bottom of the dress is shredded to look like the wolf got a hold of it.

The wolf arm & legs were made from fur we bought & his mask is a few different pieces he combined to get the look he wanted! This homemade Little Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf couple Halloween costume took us about 5 hrs to get all the makeup and last minute touches done.
