Winchester, our 4 month old puppy is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever with curly hair. We wanted him to help give out Halloween candy and since we always dress up, thought he should dress up too. We wanted to play up his curly textured hair and make him a costume he would be comfortable in. So we found a coloured hairspray with safe ingredients, got a tiny grey t-shirt and a marker and set out to make Winchester into Oscar the Grouch!

This was the easiest costume I’ve ever made and since it was basically coloured fur and a t-shirt, our puppy barely noticed it was there. He wore his costume with pride!

To make it, I looked at some images of Oscar online and then used the marker to draw the trash can markings on the t-shirt. I also downloaded the Sesame Street logo to put on the can, so it would be obvious who he was. Spraying the colour on his fur was a little difficult so if you decide to do this, make sure you do it in a room where you don’t mind getting a little colour on things. We choose the laundry room, because it was easy to wipe down. And please remember to find a spray that is noon-toxic and only use it on a dog that doesn’t lick himself.

This Oscar the Grouch dog homemade Halloween costume idea was a fantastic costume and everyone loved it. Now I will have to think of something even better for Winchester’s next Halloween!

Coolest DIY Oscar the Grouch and Cookie Monster Halloween Costumes 2

Homemade DIY Oscar the Grouch and Cookie Monster Halloween Costumes

This year my fiance and I decided to go all out for Halloween since our wedding is next weekend. All of our friends decided that a Jim Henson theme would be awesome. I have always loved cookie monster and Oscar seemed like the next obvious choice.

To make my costume I bought blue furry fleece and I used a hoodie to made a pattern. I made mine longer so it would fit like a dress. His eyes are Styrofoam balls covered in felt, and I made some furry boot covers for my shoes. I made cookies out of felt and covered my purse with them and pinned some on my costume.

For my fiance's costume I used the same furry material in green and used the same pattern from Cookie's costume. His eyes are felt and I found some brown fun fur yarn to make his eyebrows. His garbage can is silver material I found at the fabric store and I used long zip ties to make the round trash appearance. I put his friend slimey (pipe cleaners) on the trash can with him.

We had a blast with our DIY Oscar the Grouch and Cookie Monster Halloween Costumes and didn't stop taking pictures all night.

Coolest Homemade Oscar the Grouch Costume 3

I made this Homemade Oscar the Grouch Costume actually the day of Halloween! I came up with the idea when my teacher offered 10 extra credit points for anyone who comes into class in a costume. I decided to stand in a trash can and say I'm Oscar the grouch, so I thought to myself it would be a great costume.

After class I went to Home Depot, bought a trash can, cut out the bottom and painted it with metallic silver paint as well painted the bottom. I than went to Wallmart, bought body paint, wig, and just over all paints to paint an Oscar the Grouch face on my shirt!

I made this costume with lots of hot glue with a glue gun glued gummy worms and trash to make it look realistic and wrote sesame st on the can! I than proceeded to tie duct tape on the handles for support when I would walk around wearing this costume.

It was a great time, everyone loved the costume, let me know what you guys think?

For this homemade Oscar the Grouch child costume, we used a fluffy green scarf (it was very cheap scarf we got at the dollar store) and pinned it along a green long sleeved shirt and green jump suit. We used foil around a sonotube and foiled a plastic lid to cover Oscar’s garbage can. Then brown and green makeup. It was like a tube scarf. This homemade Oscar the Grouch child costume is great for little guys.
