18+ DIY hoodie halloween costumesGrowing up, my Mom always made my costume. I remember being the Queen of Hearts, with a giant, photocopied card on my front! All sorts of my childhood costumes are now being worn by my kids and nieces as dress up. I am a little less dedicated than she is, and am always looking for ways to make costume ideas more comfortable and easier to sew. Starting with a base hooded sweatshirt accomplishes both those goals, so I came up wit this fun list of hoodie halloween costumes!

Check out these other posts while you’re here!


I recommend shopping for the base hoodies secondhand if you can; I always check Ebay, the Kidizen app (use bjo0b for $5 off, it is my referral code!), and my local thrift stores. If you have to buy new, I have been happy with several of the brands Amazon carries!

This one doesn’t seem to have a tutorial, and you’d have to picture it with a plain hoodie base, BUT I’m including it for inspiration sake, a fish hoodie diy at Andrea’s Notebook

If you *do* want to sew the actual hoodie part, check out this fun option; The Dress Up Hoodie pattern from Mouse House Creations. It includes the pattern for the hoodie sizes and dinosaur, unicorn, horse, rabbit, shark, cat, mouse, deer, bat, butterfly, owl options.
