Smurfs are small characters who are characterized by their blue colored skin, created by the Belgian cartoonist Peyo in 1958. Years later, these little people made the leap to the screen and became the protagonists of their own series. A Smurf costume can be ideal for many occasions as it is very easy to make yourself at home. In this OneHowTo article we explain how to make a Smurf costume.

Steps to follow:


The first thing you need to make a Smurf costume is a long sleeved blue t-shirt and some white trousers or thick tights which will be the body and clothes for this little character.


For your hands you can also get some blue gloves and on your feet we recommend wearing some white trainers or some other type of shoes with this color.


What cannot be missed from your Smurf costume is the hat that is so typical of these little characters. You can make it yourself with white foam, also known as foamy, which is a kind of foam covered with fabric that is widely used for making costumes (see picture).

With what you've just read, you'll have your Smurf costume but you need to supplement it with some of the characteristic features of different Smurfs:

  • Brainy Smurf: black and round glasses.
  • Greedy Smurf: always has food in his hand and is eating.
  • Hefty Smurf: he has a tattoo of a red heart on each arm and lifts weights.
  • Sleepy Smurf: he carries a pillow and is always yawning.
  • Painter Smurf: with a brush and palette
  • Poet Smurf: he carries a pen and paper everywhere

These are just some of the Smurfs in the village. Next, we'll show you some of the most popular smurf costumes too.


It is also worth noting that in the village Papa Smurf is responsible for making sure the village works properly. For this costume, you should wear red trousers and shoes instead of white ones and make a red cap as well. You should also wear a white beard to complete your look.
