How to Make Poppy Troll Costume (with video)

This Poppy Troll Costume Tutorial will make your little troll the hit of the party.  You can have this Poppy Troll costume done in about 2 to 3 hours and you don’t need to be a pro to make it. Also, you don’t need a pattern and will fit any size. Cool right?

My girl went crazy about Trolls this year, how about your kids? My girl went from Frozen obsession to Poppy craziness. She asked me so many times to be Poppy Troll and after looking everywhere for the costume without luck I said, what the heck, I’m making it.

The problem was that many moms from my girl’s school asked me to help to make the costume for them as well, so after 5 costumes, I said to myself, how about making a video of the sixth costume {my girl’s} and share How to Make Poppy Troll Costume with my lovely readers? Yup, let’s do this!

How to Make Troll’s Poppy Costume Tutorial

Poppy Troll Costume Tutorial

This costume is crazy easy to make. Even if you are not a professional sewer, you can pull this off in a couple hours or so for the dress and about 30 minutes for the wig.

I included in this tutorial a video and step by step photos for the dress and then only video for the wig.

Confession time:

I was going nuts between video and photos at the same time! LOL.

I loved Fleece Fun’s Costume super cute, but Angel used a pattern for it and even though it was super easy to make, I wanted something super easy to make and that would fit any size. Then I got hooked with Color the Moon Wig Idea, here again, I hit the wall because those tulle rolls here are super expensive. So I kept digging and looking for alternatives!

There is no pattern for this since every girl might have different sizes so what you need is a sleeveless dress, like the type I used here that you might already have in your girl’s closet, and some other supplies.

Some supplies are a bit expensive here like the tulle, so for the wig, I bought a cheap {really cheap} tulle skirt from the party department on cheap stores. All the other puppies are common and easy to find.

You can add or remove details, it’s always about what you like and your imagination. I was short on time so I did it as easy and quick as I could. Hope this helps you too.

DIY Poppy Troll Costume: The Dress

Ok here you have the video Tutorial and if you prefer images and written step by step then go ahead and scroll down.

Take your pretty dress and fold it in half lengthwise.

Fold your blue felt enough so your folded dress will fit fold with the fold.

Draw your dress shape on the felt.

Then hand-draw the shoulder flap. Just extend one of the shoulders giving kind of a drop shape.

Cut the felt and cut off on shoulder’s flap. If you see it in front of you should cut off the left shoulder flap.
