How to Make an Eeyore Costume. The mopey donkey Eeyore is one of the most well-known and loved Winnie the Pooh characters. Eeyore costumes can be used for costume parties, Halloween or Pooh stage productions. Since Disney helped make the character popular, there are plenty of costumes for purchase; however, it doesn't take much to make a costume yourself.


Step 1

Start with a blue-gray sweatshirt with hood and sweatpants. If you can't find them in this color, get some light-colored sweats and dye them blue-gray.

Step 2

Cut out a strip of solid gray felt into a half-oval. Attach it to the front of the sweatshirt for Eeyore's belly.


Step 3

Cut the ears out of blue-gray felt. Cut out smaller pieces of pink felt and attach them to the blue-gray pieces.

Step 4

Attach the ears to the hood where the top of the wearer's ears would be. Add a long strip of black fur down the middle for the mane.


Step 5

Cut another strip of blue-gray felt for the tail. Attach a piece of black fur to one end and tie a pink ribbon around it. Attach the tail to the seat of the sweatpants with velcro.

Step 6

Use white socks for the rear paws (feet). Use white gloves or another pair of socks for the front paws (hands).

Step 7

Paint the wearer's face blue-gray above the nose. Paint the rest of the face solid gray.


Add thistles as a prop. A flower with a small purple bloom will do. A set of blue-gray pajamas can be used instead of the sweats, especially if they have feet. Anything attached to the costume can be done by sewing or hot-melt glue.
