Halloween 2008: Lion and Safari-ers
A friend had a Tigger costume that I borrowed, but I didn't really want Macey to be Tigger, so she was just a tiger. Thomas and I sported khakis, white tops, hiking boots, hilariously large walkie-talkies, and a canteen so that we could be people out on a safari with a tiger in tow. The tiger ears are just paper around a headband and eyeliner makes her whiskers.
Halloween 2007: The Ballerina
I made a quick tiny tutu from elastic and tulle. She wore her tutu with a onesie snapped over a pair of tights. Easy!
There you have it: cute homemade Halloween costumes that aren't at all hard. By starting with what you have and adding a few cute touches you end up with something really unique that didn't take all year to create.
Do you buy or make your costumes? What did your mom do for you growing up (buy or make)? Have you decided on this year's costume? I love to hear/see great ideas so please share.
How did you make your caterpillar costume??
" Great costume! You should submit it to http://hauntedknoll.org "

these are cute! can't wait to see what you do this year. So far we've had store bought (the year before or received gifts). What I've been meaning to do for each baby is make them a baby chick. The inspiration is a yellow sleeper (you know, the kind that don't have any legs). I have never dressed up the baby because I STILL haven't made a hat! PLEASE give me an idea of how to make the hat-I'm no good coming up w/this stuff on my own.
That was really nice collection for kids costumes. At this time so many complication to getting better one but can giving me a better suggestion for getting it. Thanks for sharing a nice information about it.
We're finally moving on from the 4 years we did Jedi Knight (and I made that one!) to Batman and Robin. Only problem is I think Robin thinks he's Batman... but oh well. 😛 I'm in the process of making the costumes, but all I'm making are the capes... and they get enough fun out of the capes throughout the year it's worth the time to make them!
Cute costumes! You are the most creative mama ever. I always buy my kids costumes the year before so I get cute costumes at a steal of a price. This year Ella will be a pink lady from Grease and Knox a farmer.
