Halloween Costume Ideas... always a challenge for this mom of four! It seemed every year I become the "Halloween Costume Mom".. helping the four and their friends to come up with ideas for group costumes and then figure out how to pull it all together!! Here are some of our family favorites.
Cutey Care Bears
Here was one of our favorite Halloween costumes from my high school daughter and
her friends.. The Care Bears. Colored t-shirts, peel and stick felt,
matching colored soccer socks, white gym shorts, iron out letters and we
were good to go. Cut out the Care Bear's theme emblem and stick it on
the shirt and a heart to go on the shorts. Iron on "Care Bear" to the
rear of the shorts. Pigtails rolled up and pinned to make the ears. Red
noses and these cuties were good to go!
What a fun and easy costume.. dress up for the Kentucky Derby.. throw on a sundress.. make a big hat and you are good to go. Here's how to make your own hat!. The bigger and more decorated.. the better!
The Kentucky Derby theme is a great couples Halloween costume too. Have your date throw on a linen suit which you can probably find at a used clothing or Salvation Army shop.. add a hat and perhaps a walking stick for him and you are both "duded up for the Derby"!
Party On Wayne!
My college daughter came calling with the quest for her costume.. and we came up with Wayne and Garth. She and her roommate happened to fit the roles perfectly. Once they had the idea.. they were on their own. Teased out their hair and used a bottle of hair spray. They made their own "Party On" t-shirts. They bought cheap sunglasses and popped out the lenses, and of course, the blow up guitar and drum sticks. Thrown on a flannel and some jeans and they were ready to "Party On". Another fun and easy Halloween costume idea.
