Disney Halloween Costumes: A Haunted Mansion DIY

What can I say, we love fall. We love fall leaves, pumpkin everything and Halloween. I always say if I had to stop going to Disney as much as we do, I would still find some way to get to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

While we have talked about Disney in the fall, and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party before, there’s one thing we haven’t covered! Costumes! I love seeing everyone’s costumes. It’s one of my favorite parts!

If you follow us on Instagram, then you’ll know that we dressed up as Haunted Mansion characters.

G was the tightrope walker, I was a maid and Rochelle actually did a bit more of a Haunted Mansion Disney Bound. The goal is always to keep the costumes light because I’m pretty sure we all know how hot it can be at Disney even in September.

So here’s what we wore!

I’ll actually start with my costume because I think it was by far the easiest. I wore a black t-shirt dress, which I got for $10 at H&M, an actual apron from the Disney Store(or you can get it in the Parks!) and then accessorized with ears and a clip I found on Etsy! Voila! Simple, easy and comfortable.

If you’re an Amazon junkie like I am, this dress is pretty similar to what I wore

G’s costume was definitely a little more complicated, but you’ll be happy to know that we actually found almost everything on Amazon! Here’s the breakdown of what we bought for her costume.

Short sleeve bodysuit

Fur Stole

Circle Skirt

White tulle skirt to add volume

and ballet slippers

So for this costume, we also had to do a little DIY, which was pretty easy. We made the poufs for the sleeves with some pink fabric and ribbon, added ribbon to the ballet slippers and pressed (or you can iron on) foil iron on flowers onto the skirt to match the tightrope walker’s aesthetic. We just used a cricut to cut these, super easy!www.polkadotsandpixiedust.com

A few recommendations: plan on other footwear. The ballet slippers are awesome for pics, but are not the most comfortable to walk around in all day.

If you’re afraid of being too hot, skip the tulle skirt. It’s great for the added volume, but I think you could do without it if needed for budget or temperature control reasons.

Ok so for Rochelle’s Disney bound, we focused on small details that turned out beautifully. We found this Haunted Mansion inspired bow on Etsy from lovelylilyandco.


The disney bound costume was a quick combo of things you may already have in your closet:

A tee dress in black and gray


A light black cardi in case you’re there on a cool evening

Some Boots

Along with a few pins she picked up from the Parks, this was a subtle, yet recognizable nod to the Haunted Mansion.
The Hatbox Ghost Pin is great to tie it together.

All in all, the costumes were comfy and cool enough for the Florida weather. And probably one of our favorites we’ve done so far!

Will you be dressing up for Halloween this year? I want to hear about your costumes!
