What Does Little Red Riding Hood Wear?
While the traditional Red Riding Hood outfit consists of a red cape, a bonnet, and a basket, modern interpretations of the costume often include additional elements such as a skirt, leggings, or even a dress. No matter what style of Red Riding Hood costume you choose, it is sure to be a hit at any Halloween party.
How to Make a Red Riding Hood Cape?
First, cut a large rectangle out of red felt or fabric. Next, fold the rectangle in half lengthwise and sew the two sides together. Then, cut a small semicircle out of the bottom of the cape for the neckline. Finally, trim the Cape with lace or ribbon if desired.
What to Use for a Classic Red Riding Hood Costume?
Start with a white blouse or peasant top. For the bottom half of your Red Riding Hood costume, you can wear a long dress skirt or trousers in black or brown. Be sure to add some tights in a coordinating color.
How to Make a Basket for a Red Riding Hood Costume?
A basket is an essential part of any Red Riding Hood costume. A wicker basket is a classic choice, but you can also find baskets made from other materials such as felt or canvas.
