No crabby crustaceans are getting in your way. We’re going to walk you through every step of your Moana-inspired costume creation.
STEP 1: Draw a Moana-inspired island pattern on your coral shirt
Use the brown fabric marker and draw a horizontal block of sunbursts across the middle of your coral shirt or crop top. Use the illustration at the top of this page, or get creative and let the island inspire your very own arrangement of lines and patterns.
STEP 2: Cut the white cloth to fit like a sarong over the grass skirt
Try on the grass skirt, and wrap the white cloth around your waist on top of the grass skirt. Use the brown fabric pen to mark on the white cloth where you are to going cut with scissors, so it will fit nicely around your waist and create a sarong effect. Next, mark and then use your scissors to cut out a large triangle so you can see the grass skirt underneath. When it’s time to put on your costume, tie the white cloth ends together in a knot at the top, or use safety pins to the secure the sarong.
GO FARTHER: Decorate your white sarong by drawing more sunbursts, lines, and patterns using the brown fabric marker.
STEP 3: Make your oar for sailing across the sea
Draw and cut out a large oval shape with pointed ends from the cardboard. Use the masking tape to attach it to the broom handle. Pull a couple of pieces from the grass skirt to wrap around the bottom of the cardboard where it connects to the handle.
STEP 4: Add the finishing touches to your island voyager look
Don’t forget to finish your Moana-inspired DIY Halloween costume with a coral sash to match your shirt and the silver and blue necklace. Moana Disney movie fans already know that the necklace is the epicenter of the story. This mystical necklace is the heart of the goddess that brings light and life to the ocean, the island, and its people.
As the demigod Maui says, “If you wear a dress and have an animal sidekick, you’re a princess.”
GO FARTHER: Bring along a chicken or pig stuffed animal as your trusty sidekicks on your journey, just like Moana brought along her pet pig Pua and her rooster Heihei.
"As the demigod Maui says, "If you wear a dress and have an animal sidekick, you're a princess.""
