You can buy Olaf stuff at Party City, but it’s cheaper if you make it yourself. You’ll need: A white sweatshirt (long sleeved) White mittens Black gloves Snowflake rubber bands Black pipecleaners Black felt Orange felt A white hat (optional) A little bit of stuffing (optional) White tights/leggings Black shoes/boots White makeup Elmer glue Hot glue gun Orange yarn
For the head, cut out two eyes from black felt and two carrot shapes for his nose from orange felt. Glue them on the hood of the sweatshirt using Elmer’s glue (
If you have a child, or work with children, or are just a child yourself inside, then you’ve probably seen Disney’s Frozen at least once. If so, you’ll know that the movie has inspired a legion of little girls to dress up like Elsa and run around their house singing “Let It Go.”
If this is the case in your home, but it’s a bit of a hassle to go out and buy an official costume, here’s how to make one at home.
First thing’s first: you need the right dress. I didn’t want to spend much on this costume because we’re only going to use it for one day, and I’m not sure how long my daughter will want to be Elsa after Halloween. So as much as I’d love to buy her an official Elsa gown from the Disney Store, that’s not happening.
Instead, I found two good options for about $25 on Amazon: this dress by Disguise and this one by Fun Costumes. Both come with faux fur trim and sparkly capes (the Disney Store version doesn’t come with a cape).
If you love Frozen so much that you’re considering dressing up like Elsa for Halloween, then you are not alone. I have actually seen a couple of adults wearing Elsa costumes this year, and I think it’s neat!
I made my Elsa costume by hand, but for this Instructable, I’m going to show you how to use a sewing machine to make a lovely Elsa dress just like the one in the movie. To get started, you’ll need the following materials:
– About 1.5 yards of blue satin fabric (more or less depending on the size of your dress)
– About 1 yard of white lace trim
– Pattern paper or newspaper
– Fabric pencil
– Sewing machine and thread
Wearing a natural looking wig will make your Elsa costume look more authentic. If your hair is dark, it can be colored with a temporary dye. There are many tutorials and products for this kind of thing on the internet. You’ll need to apply the dye just before wearing the dress, to prevent it from staining the fabric.
When dressing up as Elsa, you don’t want your hair to be frozen in place. It needs to look like it has movement and life, even though Elsa’s ice powers often keep her hair stiff. A simple braid works well for this, but if you’re feeling adventurous you can try an Elsa hairstyle tutorial that uses heatless curlers or braids to achieve a more complex look.
For shoes, I suggest wearing flats or low heels instead of high heels. The dress is long enough that it will still sweep the floor elegantly without the extra height of high heels.
Wearing a long, blonde braid and a blue gown with silver snowflakes in her hair and on her dress, Elsa is the older sister of Anna (who also has her own costume) in Disney’s animated film Frozen. The two girls become separated when Elsa accidentally freezes the land of Arendelle while they are playing as children. The kingdom becomes locked in unending winter, and Elsa hides away, afraid to hurt anyone else.
When Anna finds her again, Elsa accidentally reveals her power over ice and snow. She flees to an ice castle she has built at the North Mountain and plunges Arendelle even deeper into winter. But she realizes that love can melt any frozen heart and learns how to control her powers for good.
While it is possible to find Elsa costumes for purchase, you can also make your own using pieces from other outfits or from scratch using patterns and fabric; this allows you to create the costume of your choice. From a simple blue dress with a white cape to an elaborate gown with beadwork, there are many options for creating an Elsa costume.
Step 1: Gather your materials. You will need a glue gun, a hot glue stick, three yards of silver glitter tulle, four to six yards of snowflake tulle, one white feather boa, 1/2 yard of white fleece, and the corset pattern.
Step 2: Cut out the pieces for the corset. Fold the pattern in half so that you can cut out two similar pieces at once.
Step 3: Trace and cut the pieces for your corset. Fold your fabric in half and lay it on top of the pattern. Pin it together and then trace around it with a blue washable marker. Don’t forget to draw an extra inch or two outside of the traced line to account for seam allowance!
Step 4: Sew your two corset pieces together so that they have a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Step 5: Glue on the snowflakes to create a pretty design. Lay them down on the fabric first to figure out where you want them before gluing them all on permanently.
Step 6: Cut out straps for your corset and sew them on! Measure how long you want your straps to be and use those measurements when cutting them out of your fleece fabric. Once they
