It’s that time of year again. Time to slap together a costume or two! I thought I’d list some of our past hits as inspiration for you.
I don’t put a lot of fuss into making costumes, but I do like them to be comfortable and reusable. My favorite method involves hacking items we find in the thrift store. It’s inexpensive, much of the sewing is already done, and the fabrics are often more comfortable than those used in store-bought costumes.
For details on these costumes:

Clockwise, from the top:
Anastasia Romanov (Russian princess)
One more idea for you. My niece is evidently going to be a mermaid, and I loved the look of this simple costume her mom showed me.
I hope these inspire you. This reminds me, I have to get my kids to commit to their costumes now, too. If they had their way, they’d probably get 10 costumes and choose one at the last minute. Ha!
