One of my favorite group Halloween costumes ever! I love this Pinocchio costume for families and groups, because you can accommodate people of all different sizes and heights. And you can switch it up, depending on how many people are in your family or group (you could even incorporate pets!).

pinocchio Halloween Costume for Groups or Families

So let’s break it down! Read on for our list of supplies and tutorials to create a Pinocchio costume, a Jiminy Cricket costume, a Geppetto costume, and a Blue Fairy costume.

I’ve shared links to the items that we specifically used, so the links to the Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket costume pieces are sized for children. If you’re sizing for adults, just switch out the sizes or adjust as needed.

How to Make a Pinocchio Costume

Materials

  1. Start by trimming the vest if needed. Pinocchio’s vest is cropped short, just above the waist. Add a strip of yellow yarn or trim around the edges and secure with hot glue.
  2. Make the collar by cutting a circle of white felt large enough to fit around your child’s neck. Then cut a neck hole to a comfortable size. Add a piece of velcro at the back to secure.
  3. Create a large bow out of turquoise felt by cutting a large oval, pinching in the center, and securing with hot glue. Glue this to the front center of the white collar.
  4. Use this tutorial to create the Pinocchio hat. (Add a stripe of turquoise felt by either sewing it down or glueing it on.)
  5. Optional: glue some patterned trim to the side hems of the red shorts.
  6. If you like, create marionette strings by tying the white cotton rope onto crossed wood pieces and tying them onto Pinocchio’s wrists. (We used a weaving loom for the wood.)

How to Make a Jiminy Cricket Costume

Materials

  1. Paint the paper mâché hat blue and add a red ribbon or red strip of paint. Allow to dry thoroughly and glue onto the headband.
  2. To wear the costume, be sure to pop the collar on the white shirt and add the yellow scarf under the collar as a cravat. Then layer the buttoned cardigan and tuck it all into the pants. Add the jacket and the pin to finish.

How to Make a Geppetto Costume

Materials

  1. Start by making faux buckles for Geppetto’s shoes. Cut buckle shapes out of the yellow felt and set aside.
  2. Put on the rest of the outfit (be sure to fold the pants up to mid-calf for a period look). Then add the buckles to the shoes using glue dots.

How to Make a Blue Fairy Costume

Materials

  1. Make the wand by cutting two stars from blue cardstock. Glue them together and sandwich the wood skewer. Add glitter to the outside of the stars.
  2. Put it all on! Bonus points if you have glittery blue makeup.
