Coolest Homemade Dr. Seuss Star Bellied Sneetches Costume

My child was having Dr. Suess day at her elementary school and they had to dress up like a character out of a Dr. Suess book. Of course, my daughter wanted to be unique so we opted to create a homemade Dr. Seuss Star-Bellied Sneetches costume.

The arms were basic white leggings from Wal-mart that I had dyed stark yellow. I cut a hole where the crotch would be and put her head through the hole instead. I cut three rectangles for the body and sewed them together. Stuffing was inserted prior to completing the sewing. I had purchased loose yellow feathers from the local craft store and glued them all over the front of the costume with crafting glue. I also purchased a multi-color feather strand boa from the craft store and glued pieces of it around the neck line and bottom.

Lastly, I tied two bracelets with the remaining piece of the boa and put them on her wrist. I finished off the look with two feathers sticking out of her hair and painted the green star on her belly. She was by far the cutest Sneetch ever.

  1. I am going to do something similar. But I am going to dye a leotard and tights and going to buy a skirt and cover it with feathers. My daughter is a tall seven year ols so this makes the costume more simple
