The Grinch Costume

The Grinch is a character that appears in “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. Created by Dr. Seuss in the 1950’s, the Grinch is a recluse who hates the festivities of Christmas and the happiness it brings to people’s lives. The Grinch constructs a devious plan to dress up a Santa Claus and steal the Christmas presents from the people of Whoville. His plan becomes undone when he awakens to find people singing and still in a festive mood, despite him taking away the gifts. He turns a new leave and returns the presents to the people of Whoville.

The Grinch costume we will be breaking down will be from the film “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” who is portrayed by Jim Carrey. I will have links below followed by information on all the items need to complete the Grinch costume.

For the Grinch costume, I found an outfit on amazon. This was an ok costume. It includes the mask, Santa hat, Santa coat. It does not include the green leggings and red shoes. The costume is made from polyester and is an officially licensed Grinch costume accord to the amazon page. I believe for the price of $100 this costume isn’t worth it. There aren’t many Grinch costumes available and the ones that are available are much worst than this. if you need a Grinch costume I would wait and see if this gets discounted to around $70 then I would purchase it.

For the green leggings, because there was none included within the Grinch costume, I found on amazon. I could not find any green leggings on any of the major online retailers for men so I went with a pair of tights instead. These did the job, the colour was great and so was the price

For the shoes, I went with a pair I got on Etsy. These are handmade from wool and leather. Very well made a pair of slippers that are so comfortable. After I was finished with these I started wearing them around the because they are so comfortable. A really nice addition to the Grinch costume.

For the ladies, I came across this and I thought I might as well include it. The Grinch costume above isn’t gender specific apart from the male tights, but you can easily find a green pair of leggings on amazon.  I have not purchased this so I can’t give my opinions on it but based on the reviews it seems like a very nice grinch style dress. Very well made and the seller has a lot of positive reviews.
