(moved this over from occasions and holidays, hope that's okay)
My sister has wanted a Gir costume for my niece since before the kid was born. This year was her first year trick or treating, and I had a little too much time on my hands, so I decided to grant my sisters wish. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, especially since I don't have a whole lot of sewing experience (curtains and pillows mainly). The hood wouldn't stay on quite right, but I just walked behind her and held it up to keep her from toppling over anyway.
Side note: She had the BEST time. She's only 14 months old and she was a little sick and very grumpy all day yesterday. We weren't expecting her to last very long, but once we started letting her grab the candy herself her mood completely changed. She was laughing and yelling and trying to run ahead of the group to the next house.

Body and hood are made out of fleece.
Eyes are made out of halfed Styrofoam balls, covered in white jersey with a felt pupil glued on.
Tongue is made out of felt and black wire - started to fall apart halfway through the night
Ears and nose are made out of felt.
If I had to do it again, I'd make the hood a little tighter, I'd add a tail and I would have made her a little pig trick or treat bag.
