Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a mouse-Mighty Mouse. This superhero rodent is a great idea for a Halloween costume. The fixings are quite affordable and it won't take you long to recreate the colorful flying mouse. Then you'll be all set to save the day-or night.
Things You'll Need
Buy a yellow sweatsuit with a hood to make the mouse body. Thrift shops are a great place to find costume pieces at an affordable price. You may also find a red belt to complete the costume at the thrift shop.
Use some black felt to make Mighty Mouse's tail. A black tube sock can also be used for this part of the Halloween costume. Fill the tube sock with cotton wool to give the tail some body.
Purchase a headband with some black mouse ears. These are available from most costume shops. Attach this to the hood of the sweatsuit or put it on when you have put on the rest of the costume.
Put on the yellow sweatsuit, pulling the red underpants on over the trousers. Fasten the red belt around your waist.
Borrow a red blanket, sheet or tablecloth to make the cape for your Mighty Mouse Halloween costume. Pin it to the sweatsuit.
Paint your face brownish pink with face paint. Your nose must be black. Put on your gloves. Your Mighty Mouse Halloween costume is complete. Watch out for cats.
Tips & Warnings
- Turn the sweatsuit inside out if you want your mouse to be furry.
- You can also make mouse ears out of black felt.
- Avoid sticking yourself when pinning the cape to the sweatsuit.
- Avoid getting face paint in your eyes.
