Are you looking for a Coraline Costume? This year I didn’t sew a Halloween costume for Sammie, we just hadn’t planned any Halloween ideas. We put together this Coraline Halloween Costume DIY. We actually made two last minute costumes, and thought we’d share these easy no sew costume ideas.
Usually we have it planned out months in advance but, this year, nope. Stay tuned for her other costume, and all our posts by subscribing. I love that she always picks out such unique costumes, most are easy, and they are always fun costume ideas to make.
Coraline Halloween Costume
She loves having more than one costume for Halloween, as the high school puts on a Halloween dance. This is the costume she is actually wearing on Halloween night.
No Sew DIY Coraline Costume
Most of the pieces you can get for this costume are on Amazon Prime. Which means you can get free 2 day shipping, making it the perfect for putting together your last minute costumes.
- If you don’t have Prime, you can try it for free for 30 days.
You’ll need these pieces for creating the Coraline Halloween Costume
- Yellow rain coat
- Blue jeans (or use your own blue jeans)
- Yellow rain boots
- Blue wig
- Dragonfly Hair Clip
- Red/white top or blue top with stars
- Chauffeur hat
- Red cross body bag
- Yellow umbrella *optional
We think this is the best, and easiest Coraline costume; bonus it is super cute! I’m sure you can find many of the items at the thrift shop, or your closets. The makeup recommendations are below.
The red/white top comes with options for a red or white collar. Either will work. Optionally you can use a blue top with stars, which Coraline also wears.
The key pieces are the yellow rain coat, blue wig, and chauffeur hat. Paired together with the blue jeans, and a striped top.
I updated her photo from this blah cell pic soon but, she’s too busy with tests for a full photo shoot. I caught her fooling around, sharing her costume with friends after getting her blue wig in the mail. It came super quick, and is the perfect blue! I’ll update these photos later.
I know she’s going to be mad at me for sharing this. Oh, well. That isn’t the shirt she’s wearing under the jacket. She has a striped tee, but if it’s cold out she might opt for the striped sweater.
I’m sharing a few more photos on my Instagram like this one. Hop over to follow me. I share more behind the scene, and nature stuff.
We picked items that she can wear again or had, paired with what we bought. The items that we picked out, and received are affordable, and are great quality. We hope that it helps you if your looking for last minute Halloween costume ideas. And the Coraline costume can be put together for Cosplay too.
If you live somewhere sunny you might prefer wearing yellow socks, with these yellow sandals. This is what she is doing. They are items you can use more often after Halloween. Plus, she had to dance in her costume, and thought rubber boots wouldn’t work for dancing.
Another easy Coraline Costume idea is this Coraline Costume Witch set (cape with Coraline on it, and witch hat).
We spotted this cute Coraline makeup idea (below), and others which is how we got the idea for her makeup. All you do is use a lighter foundation, pressed powder for your base makeup. Add a blush, eye shadow, and light coral-pink lipstick for your lips. Lastly pencil freckles. If you like add mascara and liner below for a more dramatic look. See our makeup suggestions below.
