A squirrel that lives under the sea is only something you would find in Bikini Bottom… or a cosplay gathering!

This cheeky costume choice is a great fit for fans of aquatic squirrel Sandy Cheeks from Nickelodeon’s Spongebob Squarepants.

So get ready to have some fun under the sea!

How to Dress Like Sandy Cheeks from Spongebob Squarepants

Helmet

Sandy is able to live under water thanks to her deep sea scuba outfit which includes a simple clear helmet. This no frills helmet looks pretty much like just a clear globe (like a fish bowl).

Body

You’ll want to find a brown bodysuit for the body of your Sandy Cheeks costume. This will represent Sandy’s fur and help you stay warm if you’re going to be outside on Halloween night. You can find bodysuits at most costume stores or make your own out of an old t-shirt.

Astronaut Suit

There is probably no aspect of Sandy’s costume more distinctive than her spacesuit. The great thing about this is that it makes it so you don’t need to wear a big, bulky, (and hot) squirrel suit to get the look, although an astronaut suit will also get uncomfortably hot in certain kinds of weather.

Flower

Sandy always wears a flower on her helmet, a crucial part of her look. You can find flowers at most costume stores or make your own from scratch. Just be sure to choose a bright and colorful flower, so it will stand out against the rest of your costume.

Squirrel Tail & Ears

Without this oversized squirrel tail accessory, you won’t be able to pull off the Sandy Cheecks costume. You will just be a weird rodent-faced person in an astronaut suit. So make sure you get a squirrel tail prop to complete the look. The bigger and fluffier the better!
