Figment will always be one of my absolute favorite Disney characters! I just adore him. When we were planning our Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party costumes there was no question about who I would go as! I put together this Figment costume DIY and I am so thrilled to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it and are able to make one of your own if you are also a Figment fan.
Figment Costume DIY
Figment Mickey Ears
Sharpie – Black
Orange Foam Sheet ( I grabbed mine for 33 cents at Wal Mart)
Pink Foam Sheet
Sewing machine or needle and thread
Make your Figment Mickey Ears
I used the video below for the tutorial on the ears but I have also included step by step photos from the ones I made.
Now for a photo step by step if you aren’t a video person.
Start by finding a cup or circular item the size you want your ears to be.
Trace 2 circles onto your cardboard.
Cut out your cardboard circles.
Place your circle under the headband in the position you will want your ears attached.
Draw a line to represent the headband.
Take your circles and move them to your fabric.
Trace a circle a 1/4-1/2 inch bigger than your cardboard.
Cut off the headband lined portion of your cardboard.
Use the remaining ear piece to draw the ear design on your foam.
Cut out your ear shapes from your foam.
Once you have your circles, match two up inside out.
Make a dot to mark so that you only sew 3/4 of the circle.
Sew 3/4 of the circle. – If you don’t own a sewing machine you can hand sew this portion.
Flip your ear pieces right side out.
Put your cardboard and foam ear piece inside the fabric ear.
Stuff your ears with cotton balls. – You don’t have to do this step if you don’t want puffy ears.
Fold over each section and then hot glue it together. – For this section fold it over itself before gluing so the frayed section doesn’t show.
If you made my mistake and used the wrong headband, hot glue a bit of ribbon to the area will your ear will go so that it has something to stick to.
Hot glue your ear on. – You may need to double up to make sure it holds. I would hold it in place for 40 seconds or so.
I wanted a bit of space for my giant pink bow on these. You may want yours different.
Draw your horns out on your orange foam.
Cut it out.
Cut a bow shape out of your pink foam.
Add black lines like the ones pictured above to make it look more like a bow.
Glue your bow on first using hot glue.
Next, glue your horns on. – Make sure to add lines to make your horns look more realistic.
Figment Shirt DIY
Orange Foam Sheet
Large piece of cardboard
Make your Figment Inspired Shirt
Start by putting your shirt over cardboard.
Draw your belly design. Make sure to pull your shirt tight to get a better design.
Paint with the pink inside the lines.
Let dry for a few hours.
Draw and cut out your wings on the orange foam.
You want to also cut out the orange spine pieces for the back of your shirt.
Hot glue your wings and back pieces on and let dry. – Don’t glue the outer portion of your wings down because they will lift up when you wear your shirt if you don’t glue them.
Figment Tutu for a Figment Costume DIY
3 Yards Pink Tulle
3 Yards Purple Tulle
1 Roll Rainbow Ribbon
Make your Figment Tutu
Start by measuring your waist with your ribbon. You will want an extra 8 inches more on each side.
Tie a know on each side to represent your waist size.
Cut your tulle into strips. You want your strips double the length you want your tutu.
Fold your tulle in half.
Create a slip knot to knot these onto your tutu. Make sure to alternate your colors.
