A word from Kaitlyn, the 'The Grinch and Cindy Lou Who' costume creator:

I am Cindy Lou and my boyfriend is the Grinch. We made these costumes ourselves. We bought the fabric to make the nightgown, fur suit, santa coat and hat and shoe covers. The ornament, wig, and grinch mask make this costume epic! Go big or go home! Happy Halloween!

Love the costumes ! Please show us what we need to make the Grinch Body ? What type of fur you used, if you dyed it...

@Keith.. The green fur was purchased from a website. The entire outfit was hand made.. The green fur was a large piece cut into pants. They are basically oversized pants held up with suspenders and a pillow to make the belly. Jacket is felt from joann fabrics also white fur is from there as well. Gloves were made from green fur. Shoes are felt covered sneakers.

Are you willing to sell these costumes? If so, how much?

Would you consider donating (on loan) for a special needs HS in the Bronx,NY for a Christmas event? I work with students on the spectrum, those that are developmentally disabled, those with mental retardations to name a few.

I have been searching high and low for a grinch costume like this and would love if you would consider donating ! ( on loan of course.)

I followed a basic kids night gown pattern from joanns and extended it to my height. Then made "pockets" for the neckline, wrists and bottom. There are actual pockets on the sides too. And a zipper at the leg to make it easier to get into
