You can make a Doc McStuffins costume for Halloween, a birthday party, or just for dress up.
I love watching a little kid interact with the television, when they are dressed like their favorite character.

Tips For Creating A Doc McStuffins Halloween Costume
- Think About The Big Picture: The real beauty in this little girl and the success of the cartoon hinges on simplicity. When you are trying to mimic her look, focus on the overall style.
- Get The Correct Essentials: You instinctively know the essentials for any kids doctor costume. They are a doctor's coat and doctor's tools. Start with those first, then work on the smaller things to create a Doc McStuffins costume.
- Accessorize: After you know the overall look and the essentials that you need, then you should consider accessories. I like accessories that do double duty -- like the Doctor Bag which makes a wonderful toy after Halloween.
Doc McStuffins Lab Coat: Absoulely Crucial For A Doc McStuffins Costume
(or any doctor for that matter)
A lab coat is the one item that is crucial to the Doc McStuffins costume (or any doctor costume). Children love to dress up as doctors.
So when you get a lab coat your child will also be able to use it all year. For that reason I think it is best to get one that is a little big so that your child will have room to grow with into it.
There are quite a few lab coats that are available (and they seem to be available all year). Here are some lab coats that will help you create the Doc McStuffin's lab coat.
Try adding a piece of purple ribbon to each sleeve of the lab coat to make it look more like Doc McStuffins.

Pink Stethoscope (available in many colors)
All little docs need stethoscopes. These stethoscopes are available in cute colors that your children will love. You can get a stethoscope in pink, blue, and purple. Take a look at them, your little Doc will definitely appreciate one.
Just so you know, whenever I put a stethoscope in the hand of a little child, that little child becomes empowered. The little girl in my life loves to listen to everything and I mean everything.
Doc McStuffins Apparel
What do you think is the most important piece of Doc McStuffins Apparel?
For the Doc McStuffins outfit, you need a striped shirt. Doc McStuffins has a shirt that has alternating stripes of dark purple and light purple.
Rather than buy a shirt, I would suggest that you just use a shirt that your child currently has in his or her closet. If you don't have a stripped shirt, you can easily make one or buy one relatively cheaply. Just remember that any shirt will do as long as it has stripes and long sleeves. With a doctor's jacket on, most people will be focused on this search.

Get A Magenta or Pink Skirt
Doc McStuffins wears a little skirt pink skirts. You want the overall look to resemble that of Doc McStuffins, but you don't want to obsess over getting the exact skirt that Doc is wearing. Honestly, I think any magenta skirt will do. Just use one of your little girl's colorful skirts with some leggings.
Leggings or Tights
Those DocMcStuffins leggings are so adorable but they are hard to find. However, as long as you get a pair of leggings that matches the skirt you should be fine.
What type of leggings should you get? Well, you should look for leggings that are either solid or that have a design. Her leggings work because they play on the lighter colors in her outfit. You can do the same thing.
Here are a few leggings that match the skirts that I found.
Luvable Friends Polka Dot Cotton Tights, White
Heart Print White Rainbow Cotton Tights
Babylegs Baby Girls Infant Tea Leg Warmers
We can't forget Doc Mcstuffins cute little shoes. She wears a shoe that is pink and looks like a sneaker.
I spent some time researching and found that there are a couple of shoes that would work perfectly. They are great for the costume, plus, your little girl can wear them everyday.
My favorite pair is the Gotta Flurt Girls' Disco Casual Shoes,Hot Pink Sequin, shoe.

Some Fun Patients
What would Doc McStuffins be without some patients? Of course, you know that your whole family will instantly be a source of clients for your new doctor, but your family members might not be willing to be patients all day.
Lucky for you, your aspiring Doc can get the same patients that are on the show. She will have plenty of practice when she has these cuddly friends around. Any little girl would love watching the show with her version of the animated characters.
My favorite one is Lambie. On the show she is always kind and helpful. I just love her cute little outfit.
Friends of Doc McStuffins
Lambie is so cute with her little pink skirt and bow. Don't you just love how her ears almost resemble pony tails?
Stuffy is Doc's friendly dragon. He is always willing to be brave when it is time to help a friend.
Chilly is a precious character on the show. He is warm and friendly, not chilly like his name implies at all.
