My seven year old Joshua loves, I mean love, love, loves Minecraft. Last year we needed a last minute costume, so what could’ve been better than to become Steve from Minecraft. I’m not sure what the stores will have available this year, but last year there were not any Minecraft costumes, so we made our own.
If, at this point you’re wondering what is Minecraft? Well, ask your kiddos, they’ll know. It’s a video game they play and build worlds, and it’s a bit bizarre because it’s all pixel. With all the technology available, they’re loving this. Anyway, our costume is inspired by the main character Steve.
It was a very simple DIY project, and I think anyone could do it.
I began with a square box that fit his head, which the priority box from the post office actually worked perfectly. You may need to find one that will fit your own child’s head.
Also, I used packing tape (brown works great for the inside of the box), an exacto knife, and craft paint in white, black, and multiple shades of brown.
We paired his Steve head with a blue polo shirt, and a pair of dark blue sweats. Again, be as specific as you’d like on Steve’s Minecraft attire. We went with what we already had. Joshua also grabbed his Nerf sword to use an accessory.
Over the years, we’ve made many of our costumes, but I believe of all of them, this Minecraft Steve has been one of the biggest hits of all.
Joshua loved it, his friends loved it, and he still playes with it to this day.
