Hei Hei Rooster Costume

Hei Hei Rooster Costume

Costume type:  Costumes for Kids
Categories:Halloween Costumes, Movie and TV Show Costumes

This homemade costume for kids entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Darcy, the 'Hei Hei Rooster from Moana' costume creator:

Our little girl is wearing a roosricostume inspired by Hei Hei the Rooster from Disney's Moana. I made the costume by sewing a romper from a blue sheet. The head and collar are from yellow flannel. The eyes are made from cutting a foam ball in half and then paining the halves to look like eyeballs.
There are tights that I dyed yellow . The shoes were white shoes painted yellow. The tail is also made from the blue sheet.
Once the costume was done , I used permanent markers to add the feather details.
Our little girl loves her costume and regularly plays in it . Everyone thinks she is adorable and funny.

The tail is lightly stuffed like a pillow. There is snap at the top to keep it from dropping down.

How did you make the hat my daughter loves hei hei and I'm trying to recreate it for her

#48 comment by Astrid July 17, 2019

Darcy, I know this post is older but is there any chance you are still making these costumes? My 3 year old is dying to be heihei for Halloween but he has been blessed with a mother who cannot sew �� he would need a 3t/4t!!!

#49 comment by Courtney July 19, 2019

Hi Darcy,
I, too, am looking for a Hei Hei costume for my daughter. She will most likely be in 9-12month clothes in October. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! :)

I know this post is from last year, but if you are willing to sell a pattern for this, that would be awesome!

#56 comment by Tiffany Girton September 11, 2019

#57 comment by Jenn September 11, 2019

Hi Darcy, this costume is amazing! What a talent you have! My 2 yr old loves Hei Hei. Are you still making these costumes?

#58 comment by Leah September 11, 2019

Okay I've looked all over the internet and this is THE BEST
Darcy- my son is 2, he is OBSESSED with chickens (real ones) but also Hei Hei. His second birthday party was chicken themed! and he has a stuffed Hei Hei that he takes to bed every night. Getting him this costume for Halloween would be perfection
Is there any way you're able to make a 2T sized one?!?
Please let me know how I can contact you more directly to discuss :)

#59 comment by Naomi Taylor September 12, 2019

I'm interested in ordering one of these if you're still making :) so precious

#60 comment by Courtney Sands September 13, 2019

Hi again Darcy!
My daughter will be 1 tomorrow (September 14th) but is still in 9 month clothes. Are you able to make a Hei Hei costume in that size?


#61 comment by Jade Jacob September 15, 2019

I would do anything to have This costume for my son! He is absolutely obsessed. He typically fits in 2t or 3t if that makes it easier. They don't have this costume anywhere and unfortunately I have the crafting skills of a chicken itself. Please let me know thank you. You are so talented.

#62 comment by Darcy September 16, 2019

Email me if you are interested in a HeiHei costume.

#63 comment by Bernice September 23, 2019

Are you still making this costume? I need it in a size 6/7.

#64 comment by Darcy September 25, 2019

I am willing to make a few costumes.
I charge $50 for the costume and $20 for shipping.
At this cost I make about $10 an hour.
I try to keep the cost down by using inexpensive fabrics and less than perfect stitching. Otherwise, I would have to charge over$100.
If you are still interested, email me at darcy.reaver[at]aol.com.
I will send photos for approval before charging and shipping.

#65 comment by Ngalba October 3, 2019

Are you making any hei hei costumes this year? I need one desperately for a 24 month grandson. He's nuts about hei hei. Thanks

#66 comment by Darcy October 3, 2019

Email me at darcy.reaver[at]aol.com

#67 comment by Erin July 5, 2020

Hi Darcy!
Am I able to purchase this awesome costume!!? I would need it for a 2 year old boy. Size 2T. Please let me know if this is possible! Thank you so much!!!

#68 comment by Darcy July 9, 2020

I should be able to make a couple.
I could use a break from sewing masks. LOL
Fortunately, I have material for 2 or 3 costumes. The fabric store is depleted. Therefore, I may not be able to acquire more fabric in the colors I need .

#69 comment by Erin July 9, 2020

Okay awesome, should I email you directly regarding this?

#70 comment by Lindsay July 28, 2020

Email sent. Please let me know.

#73 comment by Darcy September 11, 2020

If I can find materials, I will try to make a couple of Hei Hei costumes.
