DIY ideas for group costumes

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!

Derby Dolls

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.
