How to Make a Phil and Lil Costume

Phil and Lil, formally named Philip and Lillian Deville, are from the Nickelodeon animated series Rugrats. Phil and Lil are 18-month-old fraternal twins. They both have a tuft of reddish-brown hair on the top of their heads. Phil and Lil dress alike, with a few minor differences. The simplicity of their attire makes it possible to throw these costumes together with little effort, or out-of-pocket expense.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 blue jumpers

  • Yellow felt

  • Scissors

  • Fabric glue

  • 2 pink shirts

  • 1 pair light blue shorts

  • 1 pair of pink sneakers

  • 1 pair of blue sneakers

  • 2 pairs of white socks

  • 2 elastic ponytail holders

  • Pink ribbon

Step 1

Find two blue jumpers. Phil's jumper should be shorter than Lil's. If necessary, fold up the bottom hem on Phil's jumper and secure it with fabric glue.

Step 2

Cut two ducks out of the yellow felt. Glue one duck to each jumper on the left-hand side, toward the bottom corner.

Step 3

Wear a pink shirt and put the jumper on over it. Phil should wear a pair of light blue shorts under his jumper.

Step 4

Pair blue sneakers with Phil, and pink sneakers with Lil. Both Phil and Lil can wear plain white socks with their sneakers.

Step 5

Finish both costumes by making a tuft of hair stick up on top of both Phil's and Lil's head. Gather a small clump of hair on the top-center of the head and wrap it tight at the base, with an elastic ponytail holder. Decorate Lil's tuft by tying a piece of pink ribbon in a bow over the elastic ponytail holder.
