Halloween is 16 days away, and while I hate the the scary part of Halloween. However, I adore a good DIY costume. I have made several over the years, but Minnie Mouse has be a constant one for me. LittleCuteLips and I want to Disney on Ice and we believe in looking the part so I needed a look. I found a cute shirt for her at Target for $9.99 so I wanted a cute look for cheap too.
I check the stores a few days before the event and found nothing in the price point I wanted to be in. While in H&M I saw a plan gray sweatshirt with a small red heart on it. It was only $9.99 and I was sold. I figured I would make a shirt just as I had done in years past. Only this time I did not want to make the same shirt over again.
I went back to my desk and began Googling Minnie Mouse Silhouettes until I found something that I felt was dope enough for my style. I wanted this one to look different than the others. I found this image and I blew it up and printed it out.
Step 1: Cut out your shape. This is my sweatshirt as I purchased it.
Step 2: I cut out my silhouette and traced it onto my sweatshirt using a fine tip Sharpie.
Step 3: I traced the silhouette with black puff paint.
Step 4: I traced the red bow in red puff paint.
For my other shirts I would stop at the silhouette, however for this one it needed more.
Step 5: So I added black rhinestones to the aviator sunglasses.
Step 6: The black rhinestones still were not enough so I added red pearls. Then it was perfect.
I added sequin Minnie mouse ears to complete my look. I was ready for a Disney Girl’s Night Out with LittleCuteLips. I got her shirt from Target.
This could easily be a Halloween costume. It can just be a fun look while you are Trick or Treating with the kids, or while you work the Halloween event at the school or wherever. It is very comfy and cute, and that is always my favorite look.
This was the first shirt I made, to complete a full costume look. Details HERE!
Five years later I re-created this shirt again for myself and one for LittleCuteLips. We went to a Disney Moving screening and wanted to look the part. I let her wear the sequin headband this time. Details HERE!
