Our easiest costume yet — this DIY Among Us costume idea is so simple to make and is perfect for either a single costume or for a group costume. So if you need a last-minute costume or you want to dress up for some Among Us cosplay, here is how to put together an easy Among Us costume.
The pandemic didn’t stop our girls from having some Halloween fun. The girls dressed up and celebrated with a just-for-them party at home. While they missed their friends and their usual Halloween fun, thankfully they have each other!
Julia and Sophia decided to make Among Us inspired costumes this year.
As usual, they wanted their costumes to look pretty. So instead of making spacesuits, they each created an outfit using one of the Among Us character colors and made a small “visor” hairpiece.
It was a super easy concept and the only challenging part for me to implement was to design and make their dresses in just a few days. (I always get busy and have to scramble to sew up their costumes at the last minute.
I sewed their dresses, we bought fishnet stockings online, and the girls made their Among Us spacesuit visors.
How to Make an Easy DIY Among Us Costume
Choose Your Color
Since Among Us characters are completely covered in spacesuits, the first thing you need to do for an Among Us costume is to choose your color and figure out how to wear that color from head to toe.
Our girls wanted a simple costume this year and they wanted to be comfortable and ready for a night of watching movies and eating candy. So they decided to pair fishnet stockings with short dresses and make lace chokers to wear around their necks.
I designed and sewed their dresses. (I am going to polish up my pattern and I will publish here at 5 Minutes for Mom soon.)
For Julia’s black dress, I used a polyester satin and for Sophia’s white dress I used a stretch woven, made with polyester and spandex.
For their fishnet long sleeve tops, Sophia used one we bought on Amazon.
Julia didn’t like hers and so she decided to just cut a pair of fishnet stockings for her top.
If you want to make a fishnet long sleeve top from a pair of fishnet stockings, it is so easy.
Just cut a tiny hole in the crotch of the stockings and put over your head. Then cut off the toes of the stockings, and your arms go in the stocking legs.
To keep the opening at the neck from unraveling and stretching too much, I sewed a circle a few inches around the opening. I ended up sewing it a bit too small to go over Julia’s head, but I just snipped a couple of threads and it fit.
The lace chokers are just pieces of stretch lace we bought at the fabric store and pinned together with small safety pins.
Make Your Visor
The defining piece in this DIY Among Us Costume is the spacesuit visor.
To make an Among Us visor, cut an oval from cardboard or foam core and then paint in shades of blue to white.
Julia cut her oval from foam core and used fine sandpaper to file down the rough edges before she painted it with acrylic paint.
Sophia used cardboard from a cereal box to make her spacesuit visor. She was considering putting a top coat of Modge Podge to protect it from the rain but didn’t bother to since we had a beautiful sunny day forecast.
Are You the Imposter?
Especially if you are planning an Among Us group costume, someone needs to be the Imposter. Julia quickly chose the part and decided on a knife as her weapon of choice, bringing a kitchen knife to our photoshoot.
The girls loved their Among Us costumes — and the best part is they can wear the dresses I sewed any time of the year!
