Tips for Making Your Own Smurf or Smurfette Costume

Some people will choose to buy a Smurf costume, and some will choose to make one. Here are tips for making your own Smurf costume.

  1. Smurfs are blue- Blue face paint is one option, or you can buy one of The Smurfs masks that are available. You will need a sponge to apply the makeup or face paint.
  2. All Smurfs have the same color clothing except Papa Smurf and Gargamel. White Trousers (pants), blue shirt, white shoes and a white hat.
  3. Papa Smurf has a red hat and red trousers (pants)
  4. All Smurfs have blue tails Smurf tails are small and round. You can make these with one of the Smurf Blue colors, like Royal Blue.
  5. The Smurfs Smurfette Costume has a white dress and white shoes and hat. Her legs are blue, and you can get a pair of blue tights (stockings) then use a blue face paint for her face.
  6. Smurf Mittens You could either buy the official Smurf Mittens, or just buy a pair of Smurf Blue Mittens from your favorite store.
  7. Long sleeved blue shirts these work best because it is usually cold out, plus the shirt covers the arms, so you won't need to color them.
  8. All Smurfs are named after their personality or interests Accessorize your Smurfs Costume to match your favorite Smurf. If Brainy is your favorite, get a pair of big glasses (plastic framed ones) or take a pair of old glasses and pop the glass out for your child. Handy Smurf has a toolbox, Artist Smurf has a paint set, etc.
  9. For Babies and Toddlers You can buy a sweatsuit that is blue and white, or just white sweat pants and a blue hoodie and put an iron on patch on it. This way your child stays warm, and they can wear the outfit again.

Making a Smurf Tail

All Smurfs have blue tails: You can make these with pom-poms or anything round. Attach by sewing, velcro, or a safety pin if you run out of time.

Latex Body Paint is NOT Recommended by Manufacturer

You may have seen, or heard, about using a latex body paint to get that Smurfy blue look. However, the latex is not recommended because it sticks to hair and is painful to remove. It also doesn't come off with soap and water!

Colors for Smurf Blue

To make a Smurf Costume use either royal blue, or dark blue. This works for the Smurf tail and for your Smurf shirt. Long sleeved shirts are best to hide your non-blue skin.

Blue Gnome/Smurf Blue Body Paint and White Gnome Hat

      Thanks for tips on how to become a Smurf for Halloween. I also appreciate the warning against using Latex Body Paint. It reminded me that some people are highly allergic to latex, too.

      Great instructions for making Smurfs costumes. If someone turned up at my door this Halloween dressed as a Smurf, I know it would scare the bejeez out of me ;)

      Ouch, quite right to avoid latex. Toddlers and dogs make adorable Smurfs. I think you'd have to be braver to wear this look as an adult... but then Halloween is a time when anything goes!

      Ah the Smurfs! Sadly, I'm not a kid any more and couldn't wear those costumes featured on here. But even so, I would be unable to choose one. And I love the Smurf dog costume too!

      There are going to be some cute kids on Halloween if they go as Smurfs - I don't think they will scare anybody, though. Good instructions on making a smurf costume although I'd probably be tempted to buy one from the selection you show.
