I don’t typically dress up for Halloween but this year my niece (5 years old) was having a Birthday Halloween Party. She requested everyone come dressed in costumes.
I knew right away I wanted to go as Minnie Mouse but this also means I need a Mickey Mouse. We will get to that part later. In July of this year, we took our son to Disney World. You know, where the magic happens. While there I got some ears for myself and my son. You can’t go without getting the ears.

So I had ears and an apron. I need more for my bottom so I borrowed a black tutu from BriCooley, and put on a pair of black leggings under it. The only thing I needed was a top. That part I was all confused about, I’ve seen so many top variations for Minnie. I made a game time decision the day before the party.
Disney Minnie Mouse apron
You know Disney has a way of making you want to buy everything. So I purchased this apron because it was cute. I don’t even like to cook.
I went online (read Google) and found a silhouette of Mickey & Minnie. I printed them out, cut them out and laminated them.
I purchased a black t-shirt from Wal-Mart (Don’t judge me y’all and don’t tell Target) out of the little boy’s sections and purchased some red puff paint. I went home and traced the silhouette with pencil and then with puff paint. It was a bit of a challenge tracing on fabric with a pencil, but obviously not impossible.
I was so pleased with my results. Now I just hope once it’s all put together it comes out the way I see it in my mind.
Minnie Mouse is ready
It turned out perfectly, I decided on pearls to complete my look. Ear-bobs, necklace, and bracelet.

Babe’s ears came from our son; I got his t-shirt from Hot Topic. What Minnie is complete without her Mickey. My Babe was such a good sport.
Minnie Mouse at the party
Here I am head to toe. We did some outdoor activities so I put on all black chucks.

These were the only shots I had of the tutu. I loved the way our costumes turned out. It didn’t break the bank and we had a lot of fun.
