When it comes to Halloween I prefer easy, don’t you? Often I’ll pick up a costume at a garage sale or the store and call it good. Yet, occasionally it is fun to make the effort to “theme” your kid’s costumes.

My favorite Halloween costume theme so far was ‘make believe creatures/ monster costumes’. I made a sock monster, tooth fairy, and dust bunny for 3 of my kids.

The last costume that I came up with was one inspired by the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flyin’ Purple People Eater (okay… so I was struggling a little coming up with the last idea……but mr. purple people eater ended up being one of my favorite costumes.)

Steps for making a One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying Purple People-Eater Costume

Step 1: Make the eye.

The first place to start in your costume design is creating a big eye. Trace a big eye shape on a piece of paper to use as a template. The eye will be attached to the top of the hood on the purple sweatshirt so make sure that it is large enough to stand out.

Use your paper template to trace out an eye on your white t-shirt fabric or white foam.

Cut it out.

Take a purple pipe cleaner and hot glue it to the top and the bottom of the eye to frame the eye.

Attach the eye to the top of the hood using safety pins.

Tip: Pin from the inside of the hood so less of the pin shows on the actual eye. Try to pin as close to the pipe cleaners as you can to hide the small amount of pin that might show under the purple fur.

Step 2: Put on Your Flying Purple People Eater Costume

That’s it!

Put the purple sweatshirt, wings, and horn on. (Remember, if you need the quick tutorial on how I made a horn for this costume, you can hop over to here.)
