Halloween is almost here! What are you (or your kids) going as? If you are still unsure, here are some ideas for costumes you can make. Some are quick and easy, others are more involved. Click on the links for each costume discription if you want to see how it was made.
Thing 1 & Thing 2 this post gets a lot of attention on my site. They're fun & everyone knows who you are!
Prince William & Kate Middleton, Royal wedding style are the costumes of choice for Hubby & I this year (while, of my choice, thanks Hubby). They're works in progress right now, but here's the first post on the making of Kate's dress. Many more posts to come on these costumes, check them out in the future. (** check out the completed William & Kate costumes**)
If you're wearing a full dress check out my petticoat tutorial to make your own for a fraction of the price they ask at the stores.
This skirt which can be used for a witch or pirate, is a classic. Depending on your mood and time, you can make these costumes simple or go all out. Here are some other mix and match pirate costume ideas.
Dorothy & the Lion are fun costumes. You can add or remove more characters from the Wizard of Oz to fit your group size (or go alone as one of them) You never know if you'll run into the rest of the cast while you're out. (Hubby & I went out and there just happened to be a duo of the tin man and scarecrow, crazy chances)
Whether you're a lion or another large feline, here's a way to spice up some paws or if you go the lion route, make your mane extra cool.
Don't forget your pets! Here's DIY posts on making a Santa hat, antlers, and Tin man hat. As always, be careful to make sure your pet knows these are costumes, not their treats!
Happy costume making!
(I haven't posted about them yet... maybe some day, but I've also gone in recent years as Boo from Monsters Inc when she's in her monster costume, and Pippi Longstockings)
