DIY Toddler Chucky Costume


Good Guy Chucky Overalls

Any overalls should do. Use an old one. Buy a new one. Get one from the Salvation Army!

You don’t even have to paint it or write anything on it (so you can use it again!). But if you want to make it a little more like Chucky, you can use puffy fabric paint, Sharpies fabric markers. or permanent markers to write and draw on it. Remember that Chucky’s overalls say Good Guy on it.

And then there’s the long-sleeved striped shirt. Chucky’s shirt is a mixture of blue, red, white, green stripes. You probably won’t easily find this in your child’s wardrobe, right?

You have two choices to go about this. You can settle for one that closely resembles the original color or make the shirt yourself.

The Hair

Here's Chucky. Is your toddler going as one this Halloween?

The hair is one of  Chucky’s easily recognizable feature. So it’s a good idea to do something with your child’s hair to make it look like one.

I assume that a lot of toddlers would not be too keen to wear a wig. So the alternative is to use a temporary hair color that you can easily put on and off.

This Kevin Murphy hair color has very good reviews. It’s not made for kids, so you may want to try a little bit of it behind your child’s ears (like when you’re dyeing your own hair) to make sure it doesn’t cause any allergic reaction. 

In the video below (for making the makeup) the mom in the video uses a temporary hair spray like this one.


The Chucky Makeup

How elaborate the makeup is largely depends on how well your child is going to sit down for his/her makeup to be done.

The bare minimum is simply to put freckles on. You can also add some temporary scar tattoo/sticker which looks pretty cool.

Here is what’s involved when doing make up for a toddler. Starts with a lot of hair spray, red lipstick for the scar and lollipops.

Here’s an easy one using a striped shirt, dungarees, and red shoes. They’re also using spray dye and drawing stitches on his face.– an early chucky version as his father says.

This is a bit more elaborate and needs sewing. The video starts with an old pair of denim which is cut to make a pair of overalls for the little guy. It also uses a pair of striped fabric. This is sewn into the seams of the dungarees as well as made into the shirt.
