Disney Frozen Halloween Costume: DIY Anna Frozen Adult Costume for Under $20
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love the creativity that goes into dressing up and of course the candy! Every year since my oldest son was 1 (he’s 10 1/2 now) we had a family theme for Halloween. I knew that eventually it was going to happen and not everyone would agree on one theme. Sadly this year was the year. My boys agreed but there was no way that my only daughter was going to do something other than Frozen. She is almost 5 and has yet to be a girly person for Halloween. So we are having two themes this year. And of course I had to be involved with the girly theme. I picked my daughter up a super cute Elsa costume and my 2 YO an Olaf costume. I looked for an Anna adult costume and couldn’t find anything under $40, which is a lot of money to me. So I decided that I was going to make one and I love how it turned out! It cost me less than $20 to make and if I hadn’t made the cloak it would have only been about $10, you can’t beat that!
Now for the cloak., I used felt because it was cheaper than fleece and it’s a very forgiving fabric, you don’t have to trim it and you can use a glue gun with it :). To be completely honest, I was making up the cloak as I went along. At some points I would just cut off random pieces to shape it better. So bare with me :).So I made the cloak like a long vest. I cut the felt into three long pieces. The middle on was about the width of the black shirt I used for the top of the dress. I added a couple of inches to the sides to make it a little wider. Then the sides were roughly half of the middle (a little more). I cut arm holes in all of the pieces.
Now for the flappy thing, not sure what to call it. I cut it into a half circle but ended up cutting the straight part (that’s the part that goes on the neck) more curved. I then sewed this onto the cloak and and then cut away at the felt to shape it a little better so it would lay flat when I put it on.
My favorite parts are the painted flowers, I just love them and they really add to the costume.
I put a blue shirt underneath the black top and then added some black boots. Most likely this is how I will be wearing the costume while trick or treating, the cloak is really warm. No wonder Anna could survive the snow, it’s a warm costume!
And here it is with the cloak. Either way it is super fun and I can’t wait to be dressed up with my little girl and son!
