I had the idea months in advance, but of course I’m the queen of procrastination. Let me also mention that I don’t sew. Nope, not a bit!! The day before Halloween I went to the thrift store and found a black headband, red pajama bottoms, and white gloves. Off to the craft store…. I bought white puff paint, black felt, and yellow duct tape. Here’s how I managed to make Mickey Mouse:
Shoes: I took my house slippers and wrapped them in yellow duct tape.
Ears: I used a black headband, and black felt hot-glued to ear-shaped cardboard.
Shorts: I used red pajama bottoms rolled up. For the buttons I used cardboard with white puff paint and white safety pins to attach them to the “shorts”
I used an untwisted coat hanger, a pair of black tights, and a bunch of black safety pins to hold it all together, and to attach it to my shorts.
Nose: black eyeliner
The rest was just a black leotard I had laying around, and another pair of black tights I also had laying around. Ta-Da! My no-sew, night-before-Halloween costume was a hit! I got SOOO many comments about how great it looked, and it only cost me about $30.
