Lilo and Stitch was one of my favorite television shows to watch as a child. Back in 2002 the first movie was released, then two less publicized sequels and later an animated television series on Disney Channel that ran from 2003 to 2006.
It focuses on the adventures of a young Hawaiian girl called Lilo who adopts a pet alien created by the mad scientist Jumba.
Nani is Lilo’s older sister struggles to look after her all alone after their mother’s passing so decides to allow Lilo to adopt a pet. She had no idea what she had gotten into but soon enough Stitch became part of the family.
in this post we’ll be showing you how to create your own do it yourself Nani Lilo and Stitch costume from scratch. As there are no official costumes for this character a little creativity is required, so without further ado let’s begin!

Nani Lilo and Stitch Shirt
The first area to focus on is Nani’s hair. If you don’t have long black hair then you’ll need to wear a wig. Now let’s move onto the clothing. Then there are several different styles of shirt you could wear but in this post we’ll be focusing on the orange shirt with a red heart design that Nani is seen wearing throughout the series.
Using an orange crop top as a base (purchased from the link above or from your local thrift store) create a heart stencil from sturdy card and draw a red heart in the center using fabric pens or paint.
Nani Lilo and Stitch Shorts
The next item you’ll need is a pair of denim shorts. You can pick these up from the link above, on Ebay or check your local thrift store where you can find a pair for a few dollars.
Nani Lilo and Stitch Boots
To finish the outfit you’ll need a pair of tan colored boots. The brand is not important just make sure they are comfortable to wear. Pick them up from the link above or at your thrift store when you buy the other items.
This would make the perfect group cosplay idea with the other people dressed as Lilo, Stitch maybe even Jumba and Pleakley. Before you leave don’t forget to follow us on social media to get updated on new tutorials.
