The essential pooh costume is a t-shirt with Winnie the Pooh on it. You can get that at any of several costume stores, or you can order one online. In fact, you can make your own t-shirt by using a silk screen printing kit.
If you want to make a Winnie the Pooh costume of your own, here is a short and straightforward project. A simple but very good tutorial by Willow Pizarro.
A pooh costume is a costume that looks like something from the books. It’s a fairly simple one-piece outfit, usually with a white shirt and pants. The most basic pooh costume consists of a shirt, pants, and yellow hat. You can put on an orange scarf for winter and brown boots for summer.
The basic pooh costume is by far the simplest one, but there are many variations that can be done with various materials. For example, one could create a suit of armor out of cardboard or plastic or fabric. One could wear more than one layer of clothes. One could make it entirely out of felt or paper mâché or papier mâché or anything else you can think of.
I’ve never seen anyone in a pooh costume. But now I know how to make one.
I’m not going to make you a pooh costume, but I’m going to tell you how to make one.
The first step is to get yourself a brown shirt with a collar, and long pants that have a zipper. You can get these at the same place you buy your children’s clothes. If your kids are bigger than mine, they will have sizes up to 14 or so. Just pick the right size for where you want them to be when the costume isn’t on them.
Next, you need brown shoes with black laces and black soles and thick socks that fit over the shoes. You can find these too; all shoes have laces and soles nowadays, so they’re easy to find.
You also need brown suspenders that go across your chest and look like suspenders; I got mine from a place called Very Cheap Costumes; if you look on their site, you should see an image of what mine look like because I had them made by their sister for me (the ones she made were actually more like pig tails, which is why I didn’t end up using them).
Finally, you need some kind of
Pooh and Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger, Kanga and Roo – these are the main characters in A.A. Milne’s classic children’s book, Winnie the Pooh. They are the main characters because they are the only ones who have any sort of character: they are full-fledged personalities, with their own quirks and behavioral patterns.
The other characters – Christopher Robin, Owl, Rabbit and Owl – never have any characteristics of their own. They exist only so that there can be “characters” to go on adventures with Pooh and Piglet. But as characters they are dull; they have no personality at all. No one ever has anything to say about them except Christopher Robin’s mother or Owl, who says he is a good listener.
It is this lack of individuality that forms the basis for the plot of Winnie the Pooh: when Christopher Robin goes missing, Pooh tries to get him back by himself but fails; his friends then come to his rescue by following his trail through the Hundred Acre Wood.
But if you want to create a Winnie the Pooh costume for a birthday party, it is not enough just to make a set of clothes that look like Winnie from the book;
The bright yellow body-suit is the most important part of your costume. It will give you a distinctive look and set you apart from other costumed characters. If you are lucky enough to have a small child like Piglet, it may be all that’s needed.
The other components of the costume include a small red cap, a pair of white gloves, and a red or blue bow tie or bandana. The gloves can be made from felt or from black latex (available at most Halloween stores).
These are fairly simple costumes to make. You’ll need about 30 minutes for the body suit and about 2 hours for the rest of the costume (including sewing it all together). Note: The pooh costume is round-the-body only. There are no additional arms or legs available to attach to your body suit.
Winnie the Pooh has been around since 1928, and he’s become an internet sensation. With all the attention, it’s no surprise that people want to wear his costume. But there are plenty of other great ones out there as well. Here are some of them:

If you’re looking for a quick DIY, here is a good option. Just get a green hoodie, cut out holes for the eyes, ears and mouth, and cut out red fabric to make the scarf.
This is by far my favorite–I have made it three times already. I bought the dress at Walmart for about $20. From there I just added skirt material from various items in my closet, like old scarves and sweaters. Then I made the headband by laying down a scarf (I used two), then covering that with a striped fabric I had left over from making bandanas. The shoes were an old pair of socks that I had cut up down to fit my daughter’s size. This costume only cost me $50!
Yes, we all know how to do this one–and Tinkerbell is a great costume on her own! The only thing you really need is wings (I used household
Although I have never been to China, and I have never even been to Asia, this blog seems to know a lot about how Chinese people dress.
This post tells you how to make a Winnie the Pooh costume for kids. It also tells you where you can buy some fabric in China and how much it costs.
I guess this is a good idea if you are going to China. It is not a good idea if you are going to Boston, or New York, or California. The point is that the blog wants us to believe that the costume could be made in China and shipped back here without anyone noticing that anything strange had happened.
The post was written by someone who knows enough about China not to assume that any particular thing is common there; he assumes that everything that would seem weird in Boston would seem normal in Beijing. That makes it even harder to see what’s really going on.
It’s true that nothing odd happens when I buy fabric in China, or take it back with me without buying anything, so maybe it wouldn’t matter if I bought fabric from there and brought it home with me. But the question of what would happen if I did something else is more important than the question of whether something odd happens when I buy fabric from
