Here's How To DIY A Moana Halloween Costume This Year

August 30, 2017 by Blair Donovan

Even if you don’t consider yourself an avid fan of Dinsey cartoons/musicals, you absolutely need to add Moana to your Netflix watchlist. I have to admit, I have a hard time hopping on the bandwagon for children’s movies. But this one really changed the game—and surprisingly had a lot of humor (and great tunes). For those of you who have yet to tune in, here’s a summary. Teenage Moana lives on a secluded Polynesian island, where her father is the chief. By default, she’s destined to take over control of the island, which is starting to decay. But, the ocean has other plans for her, and chooses her to set out on a solo voyage in order to save her home from a curse. She’s not your typical Disney princess—this girl has guts and gusto. So, that makes her the perfect female figure to channel for Halloween this year. You only need a few clothing items and accessories to DIY a Moana costume and save your island from corruption.

Moana sticks to the same outfit during the entire movie. When you’re an active, ocean-obsessed princess, you really don’t need that many clothing selections. It’s ok to outfit repeat when you have such an important mission on your hands. For her go-to shirt, she wears a red, strapless cropped tube top, embroidered with pretty patterns. You can actually find replicas of her entire get-up on Ebay for around $20. Or, you can buy a similar red, layered version that you can re-wear post Halloween.

Aerie Rumba Ruffle Top ($11.98)

As for her skirt, Moana still manages to run errands all over the island in a white patterned midi skirt with a hula skirt underneath. Again, you can find exact replicas of the skirt on costume or craft websites, like this version for $110 from Angel Secret. But, let’s be real—it’s not feasible to spend over $100 on a skirt you’ll probably only wear once. A regular hula skirt for less than $5 is just as Moana-approved. She also has a red sash that she ties around her skirt, which you can easily duplicate with a piece of ribbon or fabric.

Amazon Beistle Adult Mini Hula Skirt ($4.91)

No princess outfit would be complete without a little bling. For Moana’s pop of jewelry, you need her grandmother’s necklace to securely hold the shiny green heart of the goddess Te Fiti. Amazon has a light-up style, enclosed with the goddess heart and all, but it’s made for children. If you don’t want to squeeze into a tiny prop, you can DIY your own inexpensive necklace with some rope, a few pearls, and a blue gemstone.

Disney Moana’s Magical Seashell Necklace ($18.60)

To flaunt your cool princess status, pin a fake decorative flower in your hair.

Party City Pink Hibiscus Barrette ($2.99)

Tussle your locks for some beachy-looking waves, practice your singing and walk with an air of confidence to officially pull off Moana. And, just keep saying “I am Moana of Motonui, you will board my boat,” over and over again. Fans will get the idea.
