Depending on the Smurf that you choose, you should create the costume accordingly. Smurfette wears a sleeveless, white baby doll type of dress. Farmer Smurf has green overalls and a straw hat, while Handy Smurfs has blue denim overalls and a pencil above his ear. Papa Smurfs has a red cap, a beard, and red pants while the other Smurfs usually have white pants. You can use leggings or cotton sweat pants in accordance to the Smurf that you like.
Pants of the Smurfs are like footed pajamas so you will have to create the illusion by wearing same color shoes and socks. The exceptions are Farmer Smurfs who has big brown work shoes and Smurfette who has low white heels.
If you don’t want to paint your body blue, wear a blue long sleeve shirt as your top. Wear blue tights if you’re Smurfette. Cover your hands with blue gloves.
The hat is simply like a cone, but it’s rounded at the top. Handy Smurf’s hat is blue while papa Smurf’s hat is red. All the others have a white cap. Find a knit winter cap and it will pass as a Smurf hat, just don’t fold the edges so you can give it some height.
Use your hat to hide your hair if you will be male since they’re bald. Hide any sideburns with appropriate blue hair spray. Smurfette has long, blond hair so if you don’t have long hair or don’t want to dye it yellow, just buy a wig. Remember that Papa Smurf has a white beard, so consider getting a detachable one if you’re going to be him.Check Price on Amazon
Blue Smurf Make Up
Use a blue facial paint to achieve more of the Smurfs look. You can also use cream facial paint to help you have even coverage. Make sure to match the paint’s color with the color of your blue shirt. If you’re Smurfette, have black mascara, eyeliner, or fake eye lashes.
Smurf costumes make a great theme for a Halloween costume party or a group Halloween costume. Wear a Smurf costume and you’ll certainly be the best dressed for the night.
