Nick and I went to Disneyland with my mom for spring break in 2016. This was my first time going to California Adventure as an adult so I was super excited. I made us all matching outfits because I wanted to be extra like that. I knew two things when I was planning our trip to Disneyland:
- I wanted a Monsters University baseball cap (Amazon) and
- I wanted to stand out from everyone else who had a Monsters University hat lol.
My solution (as usual) was to take to Pinterest for inspiration. Here’s my Disney board if you’d like to see DIY Mickey Mouse ears and Disney-inspired outfits.

What You’ll Need
This project is actually really simple to do and you don’t need many supplies. Felt is really inexpensive and you can find cheap shirts online or in-store. You’ll probably have felt left over that you can use for another DIY project. I used:
- a hot glue gun
- felt (local craft store)
- 1 ivory colored (horns and Mike’s teeth)
- 2 white (eyes and Sully’s teeth)
- 1 light greenish-blue (eyes and eyelids)
- 1 purplish blue (Sully’s eyebrows and nose)
- 1 black (mouths)
- 1 gray (Mike’s retainer)
- 1 yellow (Oozma Kappa logo)
- 1 green (Oozma Kappa logo)
- neon green t-shirt (Amazon)
- neon blue t-shirt (Amazon)
I pretty much just referred to a photo of Mike and Sully in order to sketch their facial features and then cut them out. I used objects with circular bases to cut out their eyes. For the Oozma Kappa logo I printed out a picture of the logo and traced the design on to the felt before cutting it out (this one required a little bit more precision for me).
I was going to glue the Oozma Kappa logo onto a shirt for my mom but my mom decided she was too old to dress up at Disneyland (I respectfully disagree!). You’ll just need to purchase a third shirt if you want to make the logo into an outfit.
The Finished Product
The outfits were a success, and we had a blast at Disneyland! It matched my MU hat perfectly and there was no one with the same outfit as us. Mission accomplished!
