I know it's late...but if I "save" this post for next year it will never happen.  So if you like this idea, you have about 72 hours to make it happen or you can 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 McStuffins costume 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 more fun--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!

I bought this jacket set.  When it came it wasn't what was pictured but they were so kind and gave me a refund. I love that it has these adorable heart buttons and a nice sheen to it.  It also comes with a purple and white "tank" but 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.

UPDATED SOURCES 2018:

Skirt

similar (but selling out fast!).

Sparkly pink shoes: 

1  |  2  |  3  |  4  (my fave and so inexpensive!) and these.

Leggings

These would work (available in very limited sizes) 

these are great but girls sizes (an XS might work for some?). 

I've searched high and low for purple polka dot leggings but am having a hard time finding the perfect pair. If I was recreating this costume I'd just use these.

Tights/legwarmer options:


Purple and white striped shirts: 
I love this one!  This tunic one would work and this one is also an option.

Headbands:

Store-Bought Doc Costumes:
Amazon seems to have the best selection here.

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!

Nadia's costume is available here (updated).


 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?

  1. What did you use to get her braids to stick out?

    1. her hair is curly so I just braided it really tightly and bent it upward! If your daughter has curly/textured hair, try that! If not, I remember as a kid dressing up as pippi long stockings and my mom used wire from a wire hanger in my braids and bent it up that way...you could even use floral wire which would be easier to work with. Good luck!
