This homemade costume for girls entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Carrie, the 'Miss Piggy' costume creator:

This was our first Halloween with a baby brother so I tried to think of a "duo" costume where my 4 year old daughter could be something "bigger" and our 2 month old son could be something "smaller". It was also important that our spunky daughter have something she could be excited about. We threw around a few ideas but the only one that sparked her interest was the diva pig! Thus, the idea for a Miss Piggy / Kermit costume duo was born! I scoured the Internet for "purchasable" costumes but nothing screamed Miss Piggy to me (& no Kermit costumes came small enough for our newborn)...so I decided to make them myself.

The Miss Piggy costume was mostly repurposed from mine & my daughters' closets. I spent a total of $13 on pieces that we didn't already have. Here's what it consisted of:

  • Pink dress from last summer (with white long sleeve shirt underneath - only because the boa itched her)
  • Pig nose that was in her dress up clothes we had gotten from the state fair last year
  • Dress up tutu skirt
  • My long string pearls
  • Dress up gloves
  • Sparkly church shoes
  • Lots of black eyeliner, mascara & of course blue eyeshadow to give her that miss piggy eye
  • Bunny ears from Easter that I cut, sewed & hot glued onto a new hot pink headband($1.99) to look like pig ears
  • A new hot pink feather boa ($1 from the dollar tree)
  • And a curly wig from Walgreens ($9.99)

She loved this costume & we got a ton of compliments on it - super easy, girlie & fun for a brand new big sister :)

Any ideas where I can find a pig nose to fit my two year old toddler like this!? I love this look and my nephew will be Kermit! Any help would be appreciated!
