80+ blog buddies and I got together to bring you 80+ DIY Halloween costumes, including this DIY Baymax Costume (2 different ways)! I’m teaming up with Jamie Dorobek and her handmade Halloween costume site, Really Awesome Costumes to bring you all kinds of easy DIY Halloween costume ideas.
We often make fun costumes using solid tshirts, shorts/pants, paper and duct tape. I love combining these materials to get lots of different looks!
For suited up Baymax you’ll need a red shirt, pants/shorts, purple duct tape, red paper, white paper, elastic string and a black marker. For the shirt “plate” I covered a self healing mat with duct tape (I LOVE using these mats to cut duct tape because you can stick it on and it comes right back off).
For the mask you could go quite a few directions. We decided to use a paper mask and used this template from Happy Thought.
I always try to use a person to figure out where eye holes go by having them put the mask on and drawing a small hole where their eyes are. Cut out the eyes in the red part of the mask a bit bigger than the eye holes in the white part.
And the mask is done!
Hairy Baby! (have you seen the Big Hero 6 trailer?)
