Dilbert Halloween Costume

This Halloween Little J is celebrating that both of his grandfathers are engineers. I made him a:
I searched through Pinterest and Google Images and couldn't find another child's Dilbert costume, so I had to design the tie myself. I started with the tie tutorial on Very Homemade. But I added two hidden compartments to hold red pipe cleaners to get that iconic Dilbert shape.

And, did I mention that I couldn't find red-and-black striped fabric with stripes wide enough, so I had to sew on each stripe?

It's just a coincidence that he was another comic strip character last year.

I hope you also get a kick out of this costume. And, even though it's early, I want to wish you:



  1. This is just too cute! I love it!

  2. Thanks, it was fun to make. Plus, he can wear the shirt and pants for real after Halloween!

  3. Or even the tie if you unpick the pipe cleaners. I just love it!
