DIY Alvin & The Chipmunks Halloween Costumes for the Family

Do you have the same problem as us?  When searching for a costume for all 4 Family Members, there are many times which I go bananas because both kids can’t agree on ANYTHING. This Halloween costume took a little convincing for Love, but she eventually agreed…  because I promised to make her an Ariel Costume as well.  The little one got 2 Halloween Costumes out of the deal… TWO!

For Halloween, Z wanted to be a Super Hero and Love wanted to be a Princess…  Which does not work for this Mama, because I need to have a Family Costume.  Alvin & the Chipmunks was a happy compromise and for Love, we adjusted her costume to have a glittered green and hot pink skirt for Theodore, I wore the blue Simon Shirt, while hubby rocked the “Dave” sweater vest.  This is quite possibly the EASIEST costume I have ever designed and created for the family.  You can do it yourself too, I promise. If you are a little unsure about a glue gun, bobby pins, and felt I’ll be more then happy to help you out with a link to purchase all 3 Alvin & the Chipmunk shirts, Chipmunk ears, & red Alvin hat with ears…  Just for you!


This is how we became the Alvin & The Chipmunks for Halloween 2016.  Click any of the images for our easy DIY Instructions for an Alvin & the Chipmunks Family Costume:


As a Side Note:  Many, Many of the costumes we have created are also available in a DIY Kit in our online shop at  Happy Halloween Shopping!
