This, in my opinion, would be the fun way of getting your three amigos costume together for Halloween Day.
There are many creative ways to make your own three amigos costume.
One would be using a three amigos costume pattern. A quick google search yielded no results of an actual pattern, but there could be one out there. The truth is there isn’t much to making your own three amigos costume.
There are so many 3 amigos costume diy ideas out there and they are all somewhat similar. The three amigos costume ideas consist of a black top and black pants, a white blouse to go underneath the black jacket, red fabric to make a sash and bow tie, a large black sombrero, and white paint or fabric to trim the black top and pants.
Here are my suggestions on how to make a three amigos costume
For an adult three amigos costume homemade, using any black jacket and black pants will work. The trick to making it look authentic is in the trim.
- You can use white lace, an old white lace table cloth, or a white doily that you can spare for the trim on the top and bottom of the costume.
- The white shirt underneath can be any white shirt you own or any inexpensive white shirt available.
- Next, for the red sash and bow tie just buy a couple of yards of red fabric from anywhere. Search at Amazon for any red fabric you like. Cut this red fabric to size and attach some velcro at the end for the sash.
- The bow tie can just be some fabric cut down to size to tie around the neck.
- The sombrero can be purchased at any party supply store, craft store, Halloween store, thrift store, or even on Amazon. You can find a plain black sombrero almost anywhere. It is best to buy it plain black, unless you find one with some white trim patterns. If not, then use some white puff paint to design your own patterns on the black sombrero.
Take a look at this 100% home made three amigos Halloween Costume I found on Pinterest for reference.
For a child, same steps pretty much, only the items are smaller.
Some of the three amigos costume ideas researched used black hoodies and black sweat pants for the jacket and bottoms. The just cut off the hood part of the hoodie and sewed a seam in place.
This would be ideal for a child as you don’t want them to get uncomfortable.
Also, using plain black yoga pants that are stretchy and comfortable is a great idea.
Making your own costume allows you to be creative and use whatever you want to use instead of getting a preassembled costume that can be uncomfortable and hot.
There are plenty of resources out there to get ideas from like social media. Pinterest and YouTube are great resources.
Here are some links to some YouTube videos that can give you an idea of how to start and complete this DIY
