When my girls were little, we bought costumes resembling ladybugs and princesses, angels and pirates at online sites like Mr. Costumes or in person in the sale aisle of Target or in temporary Halloween shops set up in the mall. As my girls have grown, we decided to movie the party in-house to enjoy the holiday under our own roof rather than trick-or-treating among the little ones roaming the neighborhood. To craft their costumes, my girls still enjoy checking out the online shops along with a glimpse through the racks of Goodwill and maybe a quick glance at Ebay perhaps.
Here are some of the outfits my daughter tried on this year to share some of her creations:
For Dr. Who Fans, it’s Amelia Pond with a long jacket, short skirt and red scarf:
For the grown-up princesses, be your own royalty using prom wear!
Zombies are an easy creation with the right make-up.
A pre-made adult costume makes a great Renaissance queen on my fave teen:
And, then there’s the equestrian, using show clothes. Think about using sport clothes of any kind for an instant costume.
What are you wearing for Halloween?
