Cool Homemade Hello Kitty Costume

My 3 year old daughter decided that she wanted to be Hello Kitty for Halloween and I decided to go for “Mom of the Year” and making her a Homemade Hello Kitty Costume! I started by sculpting the head shape out of high density foam. I used an electric knife to cut the foam. Next I sewed a fuzzy white cover to fit. I used a small amount of doll/toy stuffing to fill in the ears and round out the cover to give it a very smooth face.

I made a “breathing and vision” section out of sheer white fabric to show a finished look. I attached the eyes, nose and whiskers next. The final step was to sew and attach the green bow to match Hello Kitty’s dress. Her outfit is a white pair of tights, a white turtleneck, a simple green dress and a pair of white gloves.

My daughter is so excited to go trick or treating and show it off at her preschool Halloween party!

  1. I’m really crafty too…but I thought this was gonna be a headache! Thanks to this model u posted, this will be a piece of cake. My kids are teenagers and buy their costumes, but I have made my nieces costumes for the past 4 years…I love ur costume, thanks.

  2. My 4 year old wants to be HK for Halloween..and for some reason there are no good costumes out there. She wants to wear HK’s head as her’s in her words…I’ve looked everywhere for a huge styrofoam avail! I want to make on, just having a hard time w/ it!

  3. I was just curious how u cut out for her head and how it stayed there??? We are making this for our 7 year old daughter and the head makes the costume….. so I want it to STAY!!! :)
