My boyfriend (world's largest Pinocchio!) and I spent our Halloween at Disneyland this year, happiest place on Earth! Mickey's Halloween Party doesn't require everyone to dress up, but all of our friends decided to dress up as Disney characters. Our Homemade Pinocchio Couple Costume got so many compliments through out the night! Plus, this costume was super easy to make:)
1. We both had yellow polo shirts and red suspenders. 2. I purchased my red skirt (which I also wore in my other Minnie mouse costume. I just added sticky white foam dots) from a local thrift store for $4. 3. White gloves were $1 each. 4. I also purchased the black vests from a thrift store for $3 each. 5. We both had fedoras, and I just put a blue ribbon rim with a red feather on the side ($1). 6. the Pinocchio nose had to be purchased from a Halloween store for around $6 each. 7. The large blue bow was the hardest to figure out, but was very easy to make!
I didn’t know where I could possibly find two large blue bows so I made it. Here is how: 1. purchase two blue felt papers from a local fabric store ($1). 2. cut one inch strip from the shorter side. 3. clench the original felt in the middle, and just wrap the 1inch strip around the middle, and glue it together. and WALA! its super easy and cheap. I like to wear bows for all my costumes and I use this method all the time now instead of running around Halloween shops searching for the perfect bow!

Jiminy Cricket Costume
We came up with being Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket because we wanted something that was funny for one tall and one short friend.
We bought: 1 yellow shirt, 2 red shirts, yellow felt, light blue felt, yellow fabric scrap, vest, hat, shorts from thrift store, Jiminy's hat and face paint from party store, and a red feather.
We had: Blazer. Old white t-shirt, whatever that decorative zig-zag stuff you sew is called, green leggings, toilet paper roll, and martini umbrella.
Jiminy gets one red shirt with a yellow felt circle glued on. Just tie the yellow scrap around your neck, put on leggings, a top hat and blazer; finish with green face paint and a drink umbrella and you're good to go.
Use the extra red shirt to make suspenders for Pinocchio and use yellow felt to give it big circle buttons. Cut an old white t-shirt for the collar and glue it into the yellow t-shirt. For the bow, just scrunch one piece of felt in the center, and cut a bit from another piece to wrap it around and hold it in place. Use the rest to decorate the hat. Add the red feather. Decorate shorts with that zig-zag fun. Vest on top. Put elastic or string in the toilet roll to hold it to your face.
Act silly and take fun photos and photoshop them together!
