The Grinch that Stole Halloween Costume Idea for a Child
My son has always been creative in his choice for Halloween costumes…thinking if he can think it mommy can buy it/make it for him. As well from the age of 1.5 years his most favourite movie ever was The Grinch that Stole Christmas (the Jim Carrey version) so not surprisingly he wanted to be the Grinch when he was 5 years old. Of course, I had NO luck finding a store bought costume so…. here we go. Gonna make a Grinch Costume.
The hardest part was finding the fun fur in the right colour. Luckily I have an aunt who glories in finding the unfindable! So she was able to order a bolt online so unfortunately this was not a very cheap costume but very cute. I made pants and a hood with the green fun fur. As well, I sewed pieces on the back of some lime green magic gloves so he would have hairy hands (which was great for the cold halloween night). Then I made a Santa Claus coat and hat and made some elf style boots to attach over an old pair of running shoes. Everyone LOVED the costume including my son. Unfortunately due to the fact that he has extremely sensitive skin we weren’t able to finish it off with the make-up to really do the costume right…. but it was still super cute!
