There’s something special about Disney at Halloween. The decorations, costumes, Grim Grinning Ghosts of the Haunted Mansion and of course the Mickey Pumpkins. Since I can’t make it to the park I decided to make a Mickey Pumpkin costume dress!
I love making Disney costumes, and outfits like my Tea cup Dress, Mouseketeer Costume or pulling together fun Disneybounds, check out my other IG account @retrodisneybound. So when I had the idea for turning a dress into the Mickey Pumpkin Costume I ran with the idea.
Mickey Pumpkin Dress
To start I wanted to make sure I had a circle skirt style dress and I love affordable retro fashion, so I set out on a search for a retro orange dress. I also wanted to add in pops of green, so I used both a belt and a headpiece.To add the face I pulled out my trusty Cricut!
Orange circle skirt or dress
Green accessories (belt, hat)
Petticoat (you can do yellow, green, black, white, orange)
Mickey face pattern
Yellow Iron on Vinyl or Felt
Black Iron on Vinyl or Felt
Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air 2
Cricut Mat 12×24
How to make a Mickey Pumpkin Costume
- You’ll want to make sure you download this FREE Mickey Pumpkin Face PNG
- Upload it to Cricut Design Space the size to your desired size. I made the smile 18 inches in length for the yellow and 19 for the black.
- Place the Iron on vinyl face down and don’t forget to mirror image
- After you cut week the material and warm up your Easypress 2, check out my EasyPress Settings Free Printable. Note if you’re not using iron on vinyl then this is when you would sew the felt on.
- Then place the black iron on vinyl in place and use the EasyPress 2 at 305 for 30 seconds. You’ll want to peel off the top while it’s still warm
- Once it’s cooled place the yellow Iron on on top of the black. You should have a shadow look, and use the EasyPress 2 to adhere, and then peel off the top while still warm.
It’s pretty quick to pull this together, and I just adore how it turned out. I only hope I can get to the parks to wear it soon!
Disneybound Mickey Pumpkin
One of my favorite things about this is how it also works as a Disneybound and would make a perfect costume for Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party, add a few extra fun accessories likes gloves and a bag and you can really pull off a fun look!
