This homemade costume for babies entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Amanda, the 'Boo from Monsters Inc.' costume creator:

My daughter is shown wearing her Boo costume I made. I literally hand stitched everything (no sewing machine. crazy right?) and I think it turned out perfect! I bought shiny purple dot fabric (2yards) white felt, white minky dot fabric, 3 inch styrofoam balls, black pipe cleaner, yellow yarn, batting material, velcro, and used cardboard to line a part of her hood for the eyes to stay up and used a combination of cocoa powder, flour, and grey eye shadow to tint the string to look like a dirty mop on her head. She loves monsters Inc and were always told she looks like boo. plus monsters Inc is her favorite movie. I tried looking online for a premade costume originally but they were all $90+! I made this costume for $30! And I'm so proud of the result. Her smile is confirmation enough that I did an awesome job. Thank you for the opportunity!

Absolutely adorable! I'd love to see a tutorial or pattern. You did a fantastic job, especially hand stitching it all!!

No tutorial? How exactly did you make the hood?

#10 comment by Amanda Ayala October 10, 2015

Hello natalie. Since this was my very first costume,i gathered info from other tutorials with other pieces of clothing. I would search how to make hoods,or how to make a vest etc and go from there to put this one together. How I made her eyes stand up,I'd attach something sturdy yet light to the two pipe cleaners. Its in and underneath the fabric so it's not visible. I made sure to double up the pipe cleaners to make it thicker so the eye balls don't droop. Then I stitched the hood together a few times until it was sturdy when I put it on my daughter's head. Then stitched on the teeth,hair,etc, by looking at exact photos of boo from the movie so it could look more exact.

Like I said,this was my first official project I've ever done like this and my first contest. Submitting a tutorial was required But for the judges to read. Hope this helped somewhat :) thanks for looking!

#12 comment by Amanda A. May 23, 2016

Thank you cherri!! I appreciate that so much. I actually didn't use a pattern. I just took a bunch of pictures of boo and made it that way :) It was definitely fun that way

#15 comment by Erika September 22, 2016

Hi great job. I love it. Would like to dress up my daughter in this costume , have you started selling this costume?

#16 comment by Thanks, Joanie September 26, 2016

Really great job. I always made my daughters Halloween costumes as a child and she's asking me to make a boo monster Inc costume for her little girl who is 9.5 months old. Your daughter looks just about 2. I'm trying to gauge if I need less or more fabric. Also, did you use the white minky fabric to cover shoes/socks like you did for the arms. What was the width of your purple fabric please.
