Save

Gus Gus is one of the main mice characters in Disney's "Cinderella" movie. Gus Gus is a great costume idea for Halloween and costume parties, especially as one of a group of costumes including other characters from "Cinderella." While it can be hard to find a store-bought Gus Gus costume, it is easy to make one at home.

Things You'll Need

  • Measuring tape
  • Green felt
  • Fabric scissors
  • Thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Iron
  • Brown felt
  • Pink felt
  • Hot glue gun
  • Brown sweat pants
  • Yellow T-shirt
  • Stuffing
  • Yardstick
  • Red face makeup
  • Black face makeup
  • Measure the wearer's head with a measuring tape.

  • Cut out two triangular pieces of green felt that are each 24 inches tall in the middle and 13 inches wide at the base.

  • Lay the two triangular felt pieces directly on top of each other, right sides of the felt facing each other.

  • Sew the felt pieces together along the longer edges so that the circumference corresponds with the head measurement. Leave the shorter edge open. This will form the hat.

  • Fold over the raw edges of the hat 1/4 inch and iron the folds down. Fold the edges over 1/4 inch more and sew the folds in place.

  • Cut out two circular pieces of brown felt that are each 6 inches in diameter. These will form the ears.

  • Cut out two circular pieces of pink felt that are each 4 inches in diameter. Hot glue these pink circles to the middle of each of the brown felt ears. Hot glue one ear to each side of the hat.

  • Cut out a piece of brown felt that is 30 inches long and 3 inches wide. Sew the long edges of the felt piece together, forming a felt tube. This will form the tail.

  • Sew one of the ends of the tail closed and turn it right side out. Fill the tail with stuffing, using a yardstick to help push the stuffing as far into the tail as possible. Sew the remaining open edge to the seat of a pair of brown sweat pants.

  • Pair the hat and sweat pants with a yellow T-shirt. Paint a red circle on the tip of the nose and three black whiskers on each cheek, using face paint or other makeup.
