Last year we did a big DuckTales family costume theme for Halloween. We dressed up as DuckTales characters for Disneyland’s new Halloween party, the Oogie Boogie Bash and our annual family Halloween party. Thankfully Peter and Quinn chose the easiest DuckTales costume ever, check out my Beagle Boys Costume below.
DuckTales Beagle Boys Costume
The first thing to decide is which version of the Beagle Boys are you attempting to make? The basics of a Beagle Boys costume is red shirt, green hat and blue pants/jeans. The Beagle Boys in the old school Duck Tales show that I watched in the late 80’s/90’s are dressed in brighter colors. Disney rebooted the show on DisneyXD a few years ago and the colors are more muted. My son wanted to match the newer version of the show so that is what our easy Beagle Boys costume is based on.

DIY Beagle Boys Costume
There is nothing to exotic or crazy in the Beagle Boys costumes which makes it fairly easy to pull together. They wear black shoes, blue jeans, a red t-shirt with a “B” on it, a green hat and a black mask. My son already had a blank red t-shirt I could use, I simply had to add a giant black ‘B’ to the front of it.
You could easily paint on the B or use a black duct tape as well. In fact if you use duct tape, the design is temporary and can be pulled off. Then you’d have a plain red shirt again. We planned on wearing our costumes a few times, so I wanted something more permanent. I opted to use black felt instead.
I really wanted a nice crisp capitol “B” on the shirt just like on the show. This project was the perfect opportunity to use my Cricut Maker to cut the black felt. I am terrible with scissors and if you’ve ever tried to cut felt, you know you need extremely sharp scissors otherwise the edges ended up jagged.
After the Maker cut out the “B”, I used a permanent fabric adhesive to glue it on to the shirt. The adhesive I bought was machine washable. A hot glue gun would work too but I wouldn’t recommend washing the shirt, the felt could easily peel off. For reference I used Ariel Black Front and my “B” was 7.5 inches tall.
Easy Beagle Boys Costume
I bought simple black masks from Party City but you could easily DIY those if you wanted. Or paint on a black mask with face paint. Face paint doesn’t work well in Arizona though, it can be pretty darn hot sill in October here. I also bought my husband’s red shirt and both of the green hats at Michaels. That’s it!
