The Doc is In: Semi-DIY Doc McStuffins Costume.7:00 AM
UPDATED SOURCES THROUGHOUT AND AT END OF POST. (10/2016)pin now and use later!
The thing I love about costumes is that they are not necessarily a one time deal. This one definitely isn't! My girls love to play dress up--it literally happens a few times a week; sometimes a few times a day-- so I know they'll be rockin this Doc get-up more than once. Plus since I went the semi-DIY route, Genevieve can wear these pieces in "real life," which I love! Even though I'm all for store bought costumes (I'll share Nadia's at the end ) sometimes I think making them is so much better--even if it's pulling already made pieces together. That said, there are plenty of store bought Doc costumes out there to choose from if shopping around isn't your thing!
this jacket set from Amazon. When it came it wasn't what was pictured but they were so kind and gave me a refund and let me keep it. I was amazed at their customer service! Plus it has these adorable heart buttons and a nice sheen to it. It also comes with a purple and white "tank" but if I'd been able to find a purple and white striped shirt in time, I would've skipped the vest. It's too short so a shirt underneath was a must. Her high top converse were from Marshall's but you can get them here as well. We already owned the doc bag. I can't find her shirt or skirt online but the shirt was an online purchase and the skirt was an in store purchase, both from Old Navy.
Polka Dot leggings: literally sold out as I sit writing this post! try
these? or check the store. I got Genevieve's in the store on clearance for $4.
UPDATED SOURCES 2016:
sparkly pink shoes size 11 and up: similar.
Leggings- I've searched high and low for polka dot leggings but am having a hard time finding the perfect pair. If I was recreating this costume I'd just use these for little girls and these for bigger girls.
Here are some other tights/legwarmer options:
purple and white striped shirt: I love this one! It's perfect.
purple striped shirt size 2-6X. Here.
purple striped shirt size 5 and up. here.
pink flower clips: love these. or this one.
Here are a few more pictures of Doc McStuffins and a couple of Nadia in her Lalaloopsy costume.
I added freckles like Doc's. And lip gloss. And blush. Sue me.
The set also came with a card to write your child's name on. So cute!
I got the sparkly purple headband from Target and we already had the flower. The headband that came with the jacket set was way too small.
Nadia's costume was from here and it's on clearance! I should add it's also not what is pictured (what's up with that?!). I added a review stating that fact but it's not on the site. shock.
UPDATE: the Lalaloopsy costume is available here.
This wig actually stayed on for a while! Oh and can you tell she thought she was cute?! Looking AND smiling!
cute little details.
And there you have it! Do you buy your costumes? Do you splurge or are you a cheapskate like me? Do you go the DIY route?
