Minecraft Costumes Steve and IronmanWould you like to make a Minecraft costume for you children? It's actually easy and inexpensive! This page shows you in simple, illustrated steps how to make a professional looking Minecraft Steve, Creeper, Enderman, Mob or other character.

Here's what you need (details farther down the page):

  • Cardboard boxes - Free from Costco, Sams Club, BJ's Warehouse and most Liquor stores. Or you can buy new packing boxes from HomeDepot, Lowes, etc.
  • Duct tape - vital, as any guy knows, to tape cardboard together
  • A color printer and plain white paper
  • A few cans of spray paint (just the main base color or colors of the character)
  • 1 can of spray adhesive
  • 1 can spray lacquer
  • Scissors or a paper cutter
  • Clear adhesive tape ("Scotch tape")
  • Elastic to hold arm and leg pieces on
  • Computer with either Photoshop or a free open-source alternative


Here's how long it took me, without any instructions to work from:

  1. Get boxes at Costco (10 minutes)
  2. Get paints, spray adhesive, duct tape at Wal-Mart: 20 minutes
  3. Cut holes, test fit, duct tape joints on boxes, spray paint the base color: 20 minutes
  4. Edit and print images: 45 minutes
  5. Cut and join images (skins) and using the spray adhesive glue them to the boxes: 30 minutes
  6. Finishing touches: 15 minutes

Total: about 3.5 hours to make 2 costumes

1. Select the character

Obviously, your child will know what he or she wants to be, but some characters are more complicated than others.

By definition, all Minecraft characters are boxy in shape, but those that are long and thin and have many appendages can be more challenging. Steve is actually quite easy. My boys wanted to be Steve and Ironman. And yes, there is a Minecraft version of almost any superhero, movie or gaming character.


Just because I provided examples for Minecraft and Roblox characters that appeal to boys, don't think those are all you can do. You can make costumes for girls, too. You can use ANY image that you can find that's a 3D, of a skin. no matter how small it is. If it is a vector graphics on paper craft , you can scale it up or down and make it into a costume like this using exactly the same directions. Basically, your only limited by your imagination!
