Easy DIY Daniel Tiger Halloween Costume

For Halloween this year, there was no question who my son would dress-up as…Daniel Tiger! Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is Patrick’s favorite show (and one that I don’t mind watching either). I was so excited to see my little tiger all dressed up for Halloween. I even found an official Daniel Tiger costume online

However, when I went to order the costume, they were sold out of the 2T sizes. We had Boo at the Zoo the following weekend, so it was time for me to get creative and come up with a DIY Daniel Tiger costume for Patrick, and Mom & Dad Tiger costumes for Dave and I.

Toddler tiger costume

Red hooded sweatshirt

Red tennis shoes (I couldn’t find red, so I purchased white ones and used a red sharpie to color them)

Black make-up crayon to create whiskers and nose

Dad Tiger

Tiger ears headband

Dark blue zip-up hoodie

Adult inmate costume. Why? It is easier to find than orange adult pants. I used the pants from this costume and drew tiger stripes on them with a black sharpie to make tiger legs for Dad Tiger.

Floral shirt (Mom Tiger’s shirt looks a little like scrubs)
