Simple Mickey Mouse Costumes for Kids
Mickey Mouse costumes are as popular as Walt Disney himself. Even in the most remote areas of the world, Mickey Mouse is an icon that children adore and revere as their animated hero. Your child will look adorable and feel “magical” in a Mickey Mouse Costume. Halloween is the perfect time for every child to step in the shoes of his/her favorite Disney character, so make sure you create a special day around their costume. This means making costume preparations ahead of time. You may find the perfect costume online or you can always have one custom made by a professional--unless you are a wiz with a sewing machine.
Mickey Mouse costumes come in various styles to represent the different adventures that this exciting character has encountered; however, there is only one classic look for the curious mouse: red shorts with big buttons and big yellow shoes. Since this is not a feasible look for a child (since Mickey can get away without wearing a top), you may want to improvise with a black jacket and a white undershirt. Top this off with the Mickey Mouse ears and you are ready to go!
If you child wishes to represent Mickey in a specific adventure, there are many ways to dress that Mouse as long as you have a Mickey Mouse (ears) headpiece. For example, if the desired look is Mickey Mouse in Fantasia, a wizard set with robe and cone shaped hat will do. You may not find one with moon and star print, but you can always get some stickers or iron-on patches to recreate the look. Don't forget the over sized shoes to stick to the true to Mickey Mouse appearance; this goes for any Mickey Mouse costume that your child decides to wear.
