I am the queen of last minute costumes. Every year I can remember, I’ve been working on costumes up ’til the moment we leave the house, and sometimes even in the car on the way to wherever we’re going. This year, I bought all of our costumes for the first time ever (with a new baby I didn’t want the pressure of making costumes), so I have no last minute work to do. Woo hoo! I did, however, wait until the last minute to come up with a Halloween post, so I thought last minute costume ideas was fitting.
Last year, my friend Kellie from Our Mindful Life blog dressed as a tree (similar to above), and her baby was a “tree hugger.” It was so cute!
This year, I went as an angel, and my baby a demon. You could make a demon hat using the owl hat tutorial, only red and without the eyes and beak obviously.
A couple of years ago, my son and I went as super heroes. I used colored duct tape for the costume. (Click the pic for a tutorial.) If you were pinched for time, you could do the kid’s costume like mine, just adding the duct tape over their clothes.
Have a happy, safe, and fun Halloween!
These are all so cute! Enjoy the days of getting to pick your child’s costume!
One year, Dennis and I went as bees and Lars went as a bee catcher. That’s as far as our family costuming has ever gone but if I ever end up doing that whole baby thing again, I’m living it up on Halloween. I really like the monkey-and-tree idea.
