We love LOVE Halloween. It is our favorite time of the year. Every year we have a Pumpkin carving contest that gets pretty competitive, that started before we had kids. Now that we have kids we are EVEN more excited about Halloween. One thing I've realized, though, is that I am SO not that kind of parent that goes out and buys a super duper expensive costume that my child is going to wear ONCE. Not this momma.
So as Isaiah has grown and his brother and sister have become more excited about Halloween the husband and I have worked hard to figure out ways to make costumes cost effective. And in this economy, I don't hear a lot of people complaining about that idea. So when it comes to costumes and figuring out how to stretch our dollar we've figured out that buying practical items that will be used after Halloween is where it is at! This is where CookiesKids.com comes in. I challenged myself to see what I could do with CookiesKids.com.
I perused through their inventory and came up with some fun and functional Halloween costumes. Check out my shopping experience on my Google+ album, Here.
Isaiah decided he wanted to be a skeleton, Addy wanted to be a cat, and Tobias... well... *I* decided he'd be cute as a fat lumberjack! Who doesn't love a baby in beard! Come on, people! Here is what I came up with.
Once our items arrived from Cookie's® online store, we quickly got to work on our costume ideas. Isaiah's Skeleton Hoodie was paired with black jeans. We used chalk to draw bones on his jeans to tie his costume all together.
Addison's Leopard dress is adorable! Addison's costume had one handmade piece. We gathered material and items we had around the house to make her cat headband to complete her look.
I think I aced this homemade Halloween costume challenge. How cute are my kids?! Also, two important words for every parent: practical and easy. Fall fashion can easily be transformed into a fun Halloween costume and then used for the winter months to come.
