The Three Blind Mice are just the sort of beloved cultural icons that make for creative and memorable Halloween costumes. That, nobody can deny (Oops…wrong rhyme!). How to create the outfits, though, is far less factual since the details about this treasured trio are few.
Here’s what we know: There are three of them, they can’t see, and they have a propensity for losing their tails. Here’s how that benefits you: You are free to unleash your creativity and interpret the costume as you wish! Here are four different ideas to start your mouse wheels turning:
Athletic Three Blind Mice: See how they RUN!
In order to best prepare for running away from the farmer’s wife, consider using athletic apparel as a base for your blind mice costumes. Compose your look with running shorts, track style tank tops, sport socks, and tennis shoes. If you choose a lightweight mouse ear headband, you’ll have no trouble making room for a sweat band as well! Add Sunglasses and a tale, and you’ll sprint to first place at any costume contest.
