A word from Jennifer, the 'Peanuts Charlie Brown and Friends' costume creator:
"PEANUTS" Comic Strip
My three dogs, Caiden, as Linus, Callie as Sally and Caillou as snoopy, as well as my daughter Alyvia dressed as Charlie Brown, are wearing these Peanuts comic strip inspired costumes. I chose these costumes because I absolutely LOVE that comic! It's a classic known by all and I just had to design these costumes for my three fur-children and my daughter!
How To Instructions:
Linus: I bought a red (infant) t-shirt , a pair of black pants and a small blue blanket. I used fabric paint to make the stripes on the shirt and I sewed the blue blanket to the side of the pants.
Snoopy: I used an old red scarf and found a pattern for an aviator hat online. I used army green fabric to make the hat and then used felt to make the googles.
Sally: I used a dog-dress pattern to design the dress. I used a light blue fabric for the dress and bow and black fabric paint to make the dots. For the wig, I bought a blonde dog wig and cut and styled it (with elmers glue) to give it the "sally look".
Charlie Brown: I bought a solid yellow dress (you can use a t-shirt for boys) and drew the zig zag pattern on it. Then I used black fabric paint and painted the dress. Black pants and shoes to complete the look!
Then, for fun, I sat them all by a chalk board (chalk board paint on our playroom wall) and drew the comic strip behind them. I made sure they all said the traditional things that the characters say a lot! It was a lot of fun doing!
