Ten Minute Halloween Costume: Mickey Mouse & Friday Hops

Okay, so you all saw the first of our ten minute Halloween costumes, the Flamenco dancer which was entirely put together from things we already owned.  Mickey Mouse is another idea that was thrown out there, but as soon as we got everything on someone decided Minnie would be better-- remember what I said yesterday about the whole changing their minds every other day. 

Once it was all one, Catherine decided it was too cutesy and she went back to vampire.   But, if you have a little one that wants to be Mickey this is easy enough.

Anywho, here is a ten minute Halloween costume, cheap too!

To make this costume you need:

  • Long sleeved black shirt
  • Black pants or leggings
  • Red shorts
  • White gloves
  • Pair of Mickey Ears-- we made some with the help of a headband 
  • White cloth or felt
  • Black face makeup
The only actual stitching you should have to do is to attach the white buttons to the belt on Mickey's shorts.
