The Princess Frog Costumes

Happy Halloween!

I've had a few people ask for patterns for our Princess and the Frog Halloween costumes, but I actually don't have any for these. If you have read my other sewing adventures you know that me and patterns don't usually get along. I do a lot better when I use other pieces of clothing as a spring board and then just cut as I see it in my head. Most of the fabric I had or it was given to me, so the colors don't all match, but work fine for costumes.

Charlotte La Bouff or Lotte
For Lotte, I used another dress of K's to cut the top and then measured her and cut for the bottom piece. I added poofy straps using fleece covered in tulle, so that the sleeves would stand up.

Dr. Facilier or Shadow Man
Mr. Crafty found a jacket at the Goodwill. I cut off the sides and then sewed them to the back for tails. I also shortened the sleeves to be more like Dr. Faciliers.
The vest is patterned after a vest he already had. I used it to cut 2 back pieces and 2 of each side pieces. The buttons are for looks and it closes via velcro. The pants we're his own, we just hemmed them to be shorter.

I did kind of use a pattern for Dr. facilier's spats. I didn't print it out, but I cut mine the same way it's pictured here. I cut all one piece on a fold to keep it simple and added a couple snaps and then non functional buttons for looks. I also added elastic to the bottom.


He made the necklace, medallion, hat and cane. The medallion is made out of modelling clay and painted.

Princess Tiana
K wanted me to wear the dress Tiana wore after her and Prince Naveen we're married. I just measured and cut for this one. I wound up adding sleeves afterward. The bottom lily pad and vines tie on and the flowers pin on. The gloves and necklace are my K's.

The Frog Prince
S never fully had his costume on, but it was super simple. I bought the footed pj's from here. It was hot that day, so he wore a green onesie earlier and changed to the other later that night. He already had the frog beenie, so he was set. I think it was a gift, because I cannot remember where it came from.

We wore our costumes to Disneyland for Mickey's Halloween Party.
