DIY Popeye, Olive Oyl and Swee’Pea Costumes


What costume could be more perfect for a couple with a new baby at Halloween?

Only Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Swee’ Pea!

It’s hard to choose because we’ve had so many fun costumes over the years, but THIS is probably my favorite. Our baby girl was just 3 months old her first Halloween; our own little Swee’ Pea.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    My husband’s Popeye Costume was fun to make. I started with a blue t-shirt. I painted some large buttons yellow and sewed them on. I cut red felt to make the “cape” and hot glued blue ribbon on. Then I sewed it on around the collar. The pants are from his Navy days, and he made the pipe himself from an actual corncob!

    For the arms, we cut pantyhose to slip over his fingers. We wrapped tan felt around his arm, pulled the hose over the felt, and drew the tattoo on with a sharpie.
