DIY Costumes: Daisy Duck & Minnie Mouse

My new favorite thing about Halloween since Jadyn was born? Coordinating sister costumes!
Kaylee loves watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, so I thought it would be fun to make them Daisy Duck And Minnie Mouse. (I'm a big fan of all the "old school" cartoons from back in our day... so glad a few have survived long enough for my kids to enjoy them!)
These costumes were actually really simple to make - though it did take a while to figure out exactly how I wanted to make them and find just the right materials (note to self... dying fabric is much easier than trying to find a lavender leotard and yellow tights in September!)

DAISY DUCK

Supplies:
*White tutu (I bought this one at Claires for $7.50 but I've heard they're super easy to make!)
*White feather boa
*Lavender colored leotard
*Daisy duck applique (this was custom made off eBay)
*Yellow tights (I dyed white ones that she already had)
*Pink shoes
*Pink Hair bow
*White undershirt *Yellow visor
Instructions:
*Attach applique to leotard (this one was not self-adhesive so I used Fabri Tac)
*Attach boa to elastic band of tutu. (Keep in mind that this will reduce the elasticity of the tutu so you may want to pin the boa on while your child is wearing it.) I then bunched the ends and secured with a clear elastic band to make it look like a duck tail.
*Make hair bow and add jewelry/embellishments














MINNIE MOUSE
Supplies:
*Red tutu (I had this one custom made from someone on eBay for $9.99. It was cut into strips and tied to an elastic band)
*White felt
*Red onesie
*Ribbon (I used black with white polka dot)
*Minnie ears
*Black tights/shoes
*Minnie applique
*White long sleeved onesie
Instructions:
*Attach black polka dot ribbon to each side seam on front of onesie (gluing all the way around will reduce the elasticity)
*Attach applique to onesie. (Again, I ordered this applique off eBay, but this one was self adhesive.)
*Cut white felt into dots and apply to tutu. (You could also use large pom poms from a craft store.)
*For Minnie ears, I bought a used costume from a consignment store (used the costume part as fabric for her treat bucket) but could be easily made. Just cut black felt into circles and attach to black headband. Then add ribbon for bow.
(Note... Minnie will not have whiskers on actual Halloween... just a black nose - my hubby said it made her look like a cat!) :-)
