When brainstorming costumes for this year, my 6 year old immediately decided on the blue paired, happy going, wish filled main character of True as her DIY Halloween costume this year and here’s how I made it!

I had a great helper in the office the day I started cutting all the pieces for her True Halloween costume. She likes to press the start button when we have to take each mat in and out. Tip: in addition to all the pieces on the file, you’ll also need to cut long (3-4) 1.5″ strips of the yellow vinyl for the strap of the backpack on the front and back.
Adhere the pieces shown onto the front of the t-shirt using an iron on heat press.
Adhere the pieces shown onto the back of the t-shirt using an iron or heat press.
These are True’s three wishes that pop out of the backpack in the show.
To create that Peter Pan collar style True has, I sewed on two pieces of white felt cut to create that signature shape.
For the headband, I painted three wood balls in a red/pink color, yellow, and blue.
Then adhered the balls on the headband using a strong adhesive called Power-Tac.
In years past, I created Halloween costumes on basic pieces, like dresses or pants and then those items being useful for Halloween only. (like the Trolls dresses).
This year I smartened up and decided to make some leg cuffs with velcro for the bottom of Hailey’s pants without having to ruin the pieces.
When attached, these stripes look more like True’s outfit and after Halloween she can remove them and still wear the pink skirt/leggings piece that she loves.
Once these are all put together with the blue wig, this True and the Rainbow Kingdom Halloween costume came to life!
Just like I’ve done in ALL years past, I made sure to do a separate photoshoot of our little trick-or-treater-to-be in her costume BEFORE the big day. This allows you to capture all the cuteness without the stress of the sugar rushed holiday. See it all come together in our instagram reel featuring the theme song!
