Coolest Charlie Brown and Lucy Costume

I got so many compliments on this Charlie Brown and Lucy costume I decided I needed to share my idea even though it was 4 years ago.

For Lucy we used a simple girls dress pattern and altered it slightly and added scallops to the neck to look like Lucy’s dress. We found four large black buttons and sewed them to the front of the dress. We then took the dress to the store and found a pair of matching socks. I would have liked to find a pair of saddle shoes but couldn’t, so she wore a pair of her white dress shoes. Since my daughter is a blondie I found a long straight black wig at the store and cut it to the right length.

Halloween is cold where we live so for trick-or-treating she wore a pair of white cable knit tights and a white cardigan to keep her warm, and Charlie wore a black turtle neck under his shirt.

Charlie brown was much easier to make. My kid was bald so we were good there. We had to go to a t-shirt shop to find the yellow shirt. I just cut the zig zag out of a piece of black sticky felt and stuck it to the shirt. You could cut fabric and sew it on too, I just went the easy route. Then I just put on a pair of my son’s black dress pants and some brown shoes. To top the whole thing off we found my husbands football for Charile Brown to carry.

This was one of my favorite costumes. It turned out so cute and I still remember, when we were trick-or-treating one lady said, “Well, those are the best costumes I have seen all night!”

  1. I’ve been Googling Lucy costumes for a while now. Of course these aren’t easy to come by, unlike Charlie Brown, but that’s what my dad is going to be because he found a Charlie Brown shirt at Knott’s Berry Farm. I guess I’ll just have to make one, or if I’m really lucky, I’ll find another dress like my Easter one, but in blue.

  2. The girl and bot look really realistic! I love the costumes! It’s creative because nobody ever thinks of being Charlie or Lucy.

  3. Adorable, I have decided to do this with my youngest 2…my now 7 mo old bald boy will be 11 mos then, don’t think he’ll get enough hair to matter but I plan to put a swirl on his forehead with black eyeliner! ha can’t wait!!! I am going to have someone make Lucy’s dress and my 6 year old wants to be Snoopy, this should be cute!
