Photo #1 - He was getting shy from all the attention he got. Photo #2 - He asked the balloon artist to make him an ice cream, didn't think he could do that! He actually did it, lol. Photo #3 - Kids were even as excited to see him. They asked to touch him and greet him. It was so cute.

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

A word from Melissa, the 'Chuck E. Cheese' costume creator:

I would like to submit my costume for the Most Creative Contest.
This is my 3 year old SONshine. I always like to stand-out of the crowd. So, for Halloween I just knew I couldn't have him wear a store-bought costume that someone else might wear. I was brainstorming one night. I thought of how I'd call him a little mouse. I would call him that because I'd wake up hearing a bunch of noise and things rattling. I really got scared and each time I'd see my baby was there in the midst of all my stuff opening up everything he could, lol. I was so happy that it was not a real mouse!! So, I wanted him to be dressed up as a mouse, yes. But, so plain? I didn't like it. I started to think of any famouse mouse. And, that's how I thought up Chuck E. Cheese! Where a kid, can be a kid! So, I bought a mouse costume at one of my local stores. That cost me about $35. Everything else, I had to customize it. I was on the hunt for a small hat to fit on the little space between Chuck E.'s ears. I ended up finally finding one at Petco! Lol. It was a hat for a puppy. I got so lucky that since it didn't have a price tag on it, they marked it for only $2! So, I sowed the hat onto the plain mouse costume. Since I didn't find the hat in the matching colors I needed, I bought green and purple felt to cut-out and hot glue onto the hat. That cost me about $2. I also needed light pink felt to add to the ears. That was about 50cents. I bought a purple t-shirt for $5, and blue shorts for $5(I wanted green, but couldn't find due to shorts being extinct on winter time). I got foam squares from the Dollar store for $1, which I drew and cut-out the letter C to hot-glue on the front of the shirt. For another $1, I bought a book full of foam letter stickers, because I could not trust my self to draw that many letters and look readable (I'm not a good drawer). I hot-glued those letters on the back of the shirt to say "Where a kid can be a kid!" In case, some people wouldn't recognize his costume, I figured everyone knew the catchphrase! I bought a pack of hot glue sticks for $1 to glue all that. I cut a hole in the back of his shorts, so the tail could stick out. And there you go. With tax included, I probably spent a total of $55. If I did my math right.

Sorry about the late response everyone! You have to buy a mouse costume, found in any costume store. I bought mine from Fantasy Costumes. But, they are available anywhere if you do an online search for mouse costume, or check your local costume store. Once you have the plain costume, you have to buy everything else separate to customize it. (A small hat, the clothes, and the felt, etc). The full instructions on the customizing are listed above in the description of the costume.
