How to Make a DIY Chip Costume from “Beauty and the Beast”
If you’re a fan of the iconic Disney movie Beauty and the Beast, you may have your own favorite character. Perhaps it’s Belle, the book-loving heroine, or the Beast, who falls in love with her. But if you’re looking for a fun, quirky costume idea, why not try Chip, the adorable teacup? Below, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide to creating your own DIY Chip costume from “Beauty and the Beast.”
– A plain white round neck T-shirt
– White and blue felt
– Black fabric paint
– Hot glue gun
– White and gold paint
– Yellow straw
Steps to Create the Costume:
Step 1: Start by cutting out two large circles from white felt. These will be the base of the teacup. Cut a small circle out of blue felt and attach it to the center of one of the white circles.
Step 2: Cut a strip of blue felt and glue it onto the edge of the white felt circle without the blue circle. This will make the “rim” of the teacup.
Step 3: Use black fabric paint to create the details on the teacup. Draw a smile, two dots for eyes, and a swirl for the handle.
Step 4: Take your plain white T-shirt and put it on. Place the teacup-figurine you made earlier on the shirt and add a few dots with black paint to mimic a tea splash.
Step 5: For the headpiece, glue some white and gold paint onto a yellow straw. Stick the straw into the headband and allow it to dry.
Step 6: Now that you have your headpiece, style yourself with your favorite skirts or shorts. If you want more inspiration, try incorporating soft and pastel colors, inspired by the teaparty that the character Chip is a part of!
And there you have it, you are now to recreate the loveable character Chip from Beauty and the Beast, like a pro. This DIY project is the perfect costume idea for Halloween, cosplay conventions, or even tea parties. Happy creating!
Tis the season for festive and creative do-it-yourself (DIY) costumes! If you’re looking for a simple and affordable costume for your daughter, this DIY Chip costume from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is perfect. All you need is a black bodysuit, felt, foam, and some paint.
Start by cutting out and gluing felt circles to the bodysuit. These will be the details of the costume, such as the eyes, nose, and buttons. Cut out some foam and glue to the top of the bodysuit to create Chip’s ears. Now use some paint to add more details and to give your Chip an extra ‘pop’. If you have some extra time, you can also glue on some glitter to make your Chip extra sparkly!
Once you’ve finished creating the costume, don’t forget to accessorize! A teddy bear, similar to the one Belle has in the movie, will complete your costume and make your daughter look like the perfect little Chip. A pair of shoes, such as sneakers or ballet flats, will also pull your costume together and make your daughter feel even more like a chip.
DIY costumes are the perfect way to express creativity and add some fun to your Halloween or dress-up parties. This costume is simple, cost-effective, and most importantly, it looks great! Your daughter will look amazing as Disney’s beloved Chip, and you can be sure that all of your friends and family will be amazed. So why not gather your materials, and get creative!
