Dr. Seuss created one of the most epic characters when he wrote the classic children’s book How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Whether you enjoy the original cartoon version made in 1966 or the more recent film adaption starring Jim Carrey, the furry green recluse named The Grinch is a grouchy creature that lives at the top of Mount Crumpit! His monster-like look with Santa Claus disguise isn’t as hard to recreate as you might think. Get the look of the holiday icon with this The Grinch costume guide.
Cosplay The Grinch as the Christmas-loathing creature he is by wearing a Santa Claus Jacket and Hat Set, Green Nylon Leggings, and a pair of Red Elf Shoes. Stick some green Fur Fabric onto your leggings along with Grinch Gloves and Grinch Mask to give yourself the look of the hairy Grinch! Don’t forget to bring along a Max doll, even as much as he would rather stay home!
Who says it has to be Christmastime to dress up like The Grinch from the book How the Grinch Stole Christmas? The favorite Dr. Seuss character who is allergic to the holidays can be a great year-round cosplay option, especially for Halloween! Get all the costume pieces you need to dress up as The Grinch. Santa outfits and elf shoes are pretty easy to find at just about any costume shop and you should be able to find The Grinch mask and gloves at the same store too. The rest of the items like green leggings, fur, and Max plush doll can be found online.
While dressing as The Grinch on your own would be fun, it would be even better to get your friends to dress as Cindy Lou-Who and a few other Who’s to make this into a group cosplay! Everyone loves The Grinch, even though he hates Christmas. If you follow this cosplay guide, send a picture to be posted in The Grinch costume gallery!
The Grinch grew up in Whoville along with all of the other Who’s who loved Christmas as the Dr. Seuss story goes! They count down every hour, minute, and second until the festive holiday is upon them. But The Grinch despises the festivities, lights, presents, and most of all—the singing! To end all the happiness, The Grinch came up with the bright idea to put a stop to this holiday once and for all! He’s going to steal Christmas!
What The Grinch didn’t anticipate was for Cindy Lou-Who to come prancing into his life. Cindy wanted all of the Who’s to see just how wonderful The Grinch really could be (although even he didn’t believe it)! The Grinch learned that Christmas was much more than giving presents, it means caring for one another by spending time with your loved ones. His heart began to grow, and The Grinch changed his mind on what he thought about the Who’s and Christmas.
