|Costume type:||Costumes for Kids|
This homemade costume for kids entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Emily, the 'Smurfs' costume creator:
I am a 36 year old mom of 3 under 4. I was a "Smurf" for Halloween when I was 4 so I decided it was the perfect costume for my 3. (I am glad that the "new" smurf movies have made them recognizable amongst the new generation.) My daughter was Smurfette, My maniac 2 year old son was Hefty and my youngest was baby smurf. (I wanted him to be brainy smurf but he refused to wear the glasses.)
I made the hats out of fleece, which was super cheap, and stuffed the top with some old pillow stuffing. I didn't use a pattern, I just cut the hats out and adjusted where necessary when I was sewing. I got the blue turtlenecks from LL bean (which by the way were impossible to find because who ears a turtleneck anymore, let alone in the color blue). And yes, I made my boys wear girl's white leggings. I sewed little blue fleece tails onto their tushes and painted their faces.
The costumes were a hit and so inexpensive to make!
