Halloween costume time is upon us again…..which I swear, creeps up faster than 12 months each year. Amiright?
So let’s get the inspiration party going! Cause whether you’re doing a semi-homemade Halloween, or going ALL out, it’s nice to have some tutorials to turn to.
(Lalaloopsy costumes here)
Going as an ensemble is always a great choice. And the Say Yes blog has so many great couples costumes that are easy and fun. My kids have just discovered the Where’s Waldo books and would love this.
Of course if you have even more people in the group, then an entire cast ensemble is even better.
And since Lucy is obsessed with the Pink song from the new Alice movie…maybe I could do a revamp on my favorite ensemble from seven years ago?? Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter. Those costumes got a lot of mileage…
The classic blue gingham Dorothy outfit is one that every little girl would LOVE to wear at least once – I know I would! This interpretation is one of the best I’ve seen.
The 80s child in me loves this take on Mario & Luigi. Complete with Princess Peach!
This mermaid one, you guys. Stunning!
House that Lars Built is a treasure trove of costumes, like If you Give a Mouse a Cookie and this Unicorn (with a video tutorial too!). Just type the word “costume” into her search box and tons of ideas will pop up.
And how amazing are these mummies? I love how she did the make-up, too.
Lastly, here are a few tutorials that can be used in MANY costumes. I can’t stop thinking of ways these yarn wigs can be used. In fact, if you’re short on time but want to create a costume, one of these wigs will get you 90% of the way there.
Need a cape to complete the look? This tutorial is great and would be the perfect touch for so many costumes. Just change up the fabric for a completely different look, or choose two different ones for reversible.
We all know how versatile a circle skirt can be in everyday life. But it works in lots of costumes, too. How about a poodle skirt? Or Minnie Mouse… or Wonder Woman… (and this one is even a video tutorial!)
