Hobbies and Games

If you’re a fan of the popular Pixar film “Monsters, Inc.”, you may have found yourself wanting to dress up as the lovable character Mike Wazowski for Halloween or costume parties. Luckily, creating a Mike Wazowski costume is a fun and relatively simple DIY project. In this article, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of making your very own Mike Wazowski costume from scratch. Let’s get started!

Materials Needed

Before we dive into the detailed instructions, let’s first gather all the materials you’ll need to create your Mike Wazowski costume:

  1. Green fabric
  2. White fabric
  3. Black fabric
  4. Scissors
  5. Needle and thread
  6. Elastic
  7. Hot glue gun
  8. Cardboard
  9. Marker
  10. Green face paint
  11. Black face paint

Creating the Body

To start, let’s focus on creating the body of the Mike Wazowski costume:

Step 1: Measure and Cut the Green Fabric

Measure your body from your shoulders to your desired costume length. Double the measurement and add a few inches for seams. Cut two rectangular pieces of green fabric according to this measurement.

Step 2: Sew the Sides

Place the two pieces of green fabric together, with the right sides facing each other. Sew along the sides, leaving openings for your arms and neck. You can use a sewing machine or hand sew if you prefer.

Step 3: Create the Neck Opening

Measure the circumference of your neck and cut a piece of elastic accordingly. Sew the elastic onto the neck opening, ensuring it is snug but not too tight.

Step 4: Add the Eye and Mouth Openings

Cut out a large circular shape for the eye opening from the white fabric. Use a hot glue gun to attach it to the front of the costume, slightly below the neck opening. Cut out a smaller circular shape for the mouth opening from the black fabric and glue it below the eye opening.

Step 5: Add Shoulder Straps

Measure and cut two strips of green fabric for the shoulder straps. Sew them onto the top corners of the costume, creating loops that will go over your shoulders.

Creating the Eye

Now, let’s move on to creating the iconic eye of Mike Wazowski:

Step 6: Draw the Eye Shape on Cardboard

Take a piece of cardboard and draw a large circular shape for the eye. Make sure it is proportionate to the size of your costume.

Step 7: Cut Out the Eye Shape

Using scissors, carefully cut out the eye shape from the cardboard. Smooth the edges if needed.

Step 8: Paint the Eye

Using the marker, draw the details of the eye on the cardboard cutout. Make it resemble Mike Wazowski’s eye as closely as possible. Use green and black face paints to add color to the eye, following your drawn design.

Step 9: Attach the Eye to the Costume

Once the paint is dry, use a hot glue gun to attach the cardboard eye to the white fabric eye opening on the costume.

Completing the Look

Your Mike Wazowski costume is almost complete! Let’s finish off the look:

Step 10: Wear Green Clothing

Wear a pair of green pants and a green long-sleeved shirt underneath the costume to match Mike Wazowski’s green skin color.

Step 11: Paint Your Face

Using the green face paint, cover your entire face to match the green color of Mike Wazowski. Use the black face paint to draw on a wide smile and eyebrows.

Now, put on your completed Mike Wazowski costume, and you’re ready to hit the party! Enjoy bringing this beloved character to life and have a monstrous amount of fun!
