Halloween Costume Favorites!

on October 7, 2013

I swear that time is moving faster than it did when I was a child.

Back when I counted down the days until summer vacation and when it finally came, summer lasted forever…then school started and it seemed like an eternity before it was time for the holidays!

But these days, it feels like weeks or month can go by in the blink of an eye. I feel like summer just started, now we are already decorating our home for Halloween and making plans for Christmas vacation!

I know Halloween is not until the end of this month, but I will probably take a nap to rest my tired eyes and wake up to find out that Halloween is tomorrow. So, in the honor of anti-procrastination, I thought I would share some of my favorite costume ideas with you. Yes, I know that some of my favorites are for babies…which my kiddos are not anymore…but I had to show these adorable ideas with you!

This is by far on of the cutest infant ideas I have ever seen. I think it would be especially funny if the mom or dad dressed as a hotdog or other movie night snacks. The instructions can be found at This Place Is Now a Home.

I just fell in love with this little girl when I saw her costume. I think her beautiful big blue eyes really make this costume truly look like a legitimate Cabbage Patch Kid. I would love to see it done looking like the doll I had when I was a child – with a poofy, frilly, pink dress and some Mary Jane style shoes…and a birth certificate to complete the look!

Macaroni and Cheese is a staple food item in our home, so this costume gave me a good laugh… not to mention that we go through a TON of toilet paper, as does any household with young kiddos, so it would not take long for us to save to make this up-cycled toilet paper tube creation!

An Oompa Loompa! I get that this little one is the most adorable Oompa Loompa ever seen, but my reason for loving it might be a little on the mean side. My sister is deathly afraid of the Oompa Loompas in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. As a kid, she would run out of the room screaming whenever they would appear during the movie. To this day, when we watch the movie with our own children, I still see her turn her head or close her eyes! So for me, this would make for a perfectly scary costume for one of my kids this Halloween when we meet up with her family to Trick or Treat! Mean, yes…but it is Halloween, after all!

More Halloween ideas coming soon… thanks for reading!
