Dressing up as the Grinch is bound to entertain adults and children alike. The best thing about the Grinch costume is that it’s holiday-appropriate on two different occasions, Halloween and Christmas! Two holidays equals double the fun, right?

To dress up as the Grinch, you will need the following: a Grinch Mask, Santa Claus Jacket with Belt, Green Furry Pants, Green Furry Hand Gloves, Red Elf Shoes, and  Max The Dog to complete the look.

Grinch Cosplay Costume

The Grinch is most remembered for his iconic furry green body, complete with his cat-like face, snub nose, yellow eyes, and long spindly fingers.

The Grinch’s head is fairly simple: all you’ll need is the Grinch mask and a red Santa hat. If you can’t find a Grinch mask or want to make your own, you can use some faux green fur or green paint. Don’t forget to make the snub nose and yellow eyes!

For the Grinch’s body, you will need a red fluffy Santa jacket (preferable one that matches your hat), furry green gloves, and furry green pants. Make sure you also wear a large black belt on your jacket to make it more Santa-like. You can also carry around a large Christmas ball to draw attention to your long, spindly fingers. Finally, on your feet, put on some fluffy red elf shoes.

About Grinch

The Grinch hates all Christmas-related things, including Christmas carols—which he finds incredibly annoying. He lives on a cliff overlooking the town of Whoville, where the cheerful Whos live. In _How the Grinch Stole Christmas_, he decides to ruin Christmas once and for all. Partnered with his dog Max, he steals from the Whos on Christmas Eve and dumps all of their belongings on the side of a mountain. To his surprise, the Whos still celebrate Christmas despite his theft. He then realizes the deeper meaning of Christmas and rescues the Whos’ belongings before they are lost and destroyed forever. The story ends with the Grinch celebrating Christmas with the Whos.
