Day 5 – Bat Girl DIY Halloween Costume Tutorial Cheap Easy + {GIVEAWAY!}


Bat Girl Inspired Costume Tutorial

(our pieces available for ages 2-9 years)

Are your kids as obsessed with super heroes as mine are? My niece loves Batman, β€œAnd it’s not just for boys!” she says. Ha ha. So we decided to make this darling little Bat Girl costume for those super hero loving girls of ours (or their parents πŸ˜‰

With product from Always Under Pay, this was a super quick and fun one to make ourselves.


Materials Needed:

Black and Yellow Reversible Pettiskirt (You could also layer a yellow and black ballet tutu on top of each other for a different look)

Black Leotard

1.5″ Yellow Grosgrain Ribbon (about 2 yards)

2 Black Marabou Puff Clips


Glue Sticks and Glue Gun

Black Felt

Yellow Felt

Instructions for Bows:

Yellow Boutique Bow (I made my own using the tutorial in the link, but you could also buy a boutique bow clip and remove the clip piece.) If you make your own, you will need about 1 yard of the 1.5” yellow grosgrain ribbon and about 6” or so of the 3/8” yellow grosgrain ribbon for each bow as well as about a foot of string.

Black Marabou Puff Clips

Black Leotard

Just glue your boutique bow to the center of the loopy bow as shown.


For Top:

I downloaded the free Super Hero Logo Template here. Then I sized the template to what I needed to fit the top and cut the pieces out of felt.

First I printed the template onto a piece of copy paper. Next, I attached it to the yellow felt with some pins.


I cut the yellow piece out by just cutting around the edge of the oval part of the template.

Then I cut the bat piece out of the paper template, attached it to my black felt with pins, and cut the bat piece (That black piece is oval because I accidentally did the first step with the wrong color. So, don’t worry. You didn’t miss anything important :)


I used a hot glue gun to adhere the yellow bat piece on top of the black felt oval.

Then hot glue the Batman logo onto the front of your leotard. Make sure you get it glued on good, especially the edges. They will lift on you if you don’t.


Voila! Awesome and cute girl’s super hero costume, and pretty inexpensive too!
