This Alvin and the Chipmunks Costume is a Perfect Group Youth Costume
We were all thinking it, but Mean Girls finally said it — “Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." Don't get me wrong; I'm all about those leotards and tight clothing, but ladies — you've got to stay covered where it matters. I'll always layer tights or nude leggings underneath costumes and make sure the boobies are staying where they belong — behind clothing and this Alvin and the Chipmunks costume is a perfect fit for any tweens looking for a great group costume idea.
Last week our in-house lawyer Amy reached out to me asking if we needed any teens to model Halloween Costumes. After chatting with her daughter and her two friends, we came up with the perfect Alvin and the Chipmunk’s costume for their age. This group costume is comfortable and, most importantly, school-appropriate. Little ladies — you all rock, and it was a pleasure working with you :)
Alvin and the Chipmunks Halloween Costumes
The keys to this chipmunk trio costume are the bold colors and large initial on the front of the shirt. You can find these Hanes shirts at any craft store and then use iron-on transfer paper to get the large letter on the front. Alvin wears a red baseball cap — you can pick one up for cheap on Amazon!
Yasss!! Sydney! Juju on that beat!
To complete the look, pair your colored shirt with matching colored socks, black leggings and Converse.

Yes, Tessa! Shake that tail feather.
Misty took the girls’ chipmunk costumes next-level with their makeup. Here is how she did it: “I used Ben Nye Creme Colors ($7) to mock the markings on a chipmunk’s face. Start off with the darker brown to shape the eyebrows and the lines on the nose, as well as the nose. Then take the lighter brown and hit the inside of the lines you made, as well as down the center of the nose and onto your cheeks. Apply a pink blush to the apples of your cheeks. Paint on your “teeth” by adding a white rectangle onto your lips and outlining it in a thin black paint. Apply a deep orange shadow into your creases, and then throw on your favorite mascara to complete the look.”
As for hair, all you need to do is make pigtail top knots and secure with bobby pins and elastics. For Alvin, you can cut out holes in his cap so your hair can peep through!
To match the athletic vibe of the socks, the girls added their chipmunk’s full name to the back of the shirt like a sports jersey. So cute!
