I have a hard time buying pre-made costumes without embellishing and accessorizing them.
So when our oldest daughter, Charley, told me that she wanted to be a witch this year, I couldn't have been more excited. And thankfully, it didn't take too much coaxing to get her on board with assembling a witch costume, rather than buying a pre-packaged one.
It might take more time to 'assemble' a costume(s), but it's so much fun personalizing them to my kids' personalities.
Embellishing a simple witch costume can be as easy as . . .
adding metallic star strands to a simple witch broom (see first photo),
trimming a witch hat with black feathers, spiders, or even a crow,
making your own candy bag,
and accessorizing with spider rings and costume make-up
Charley's costume began with this hat (above). She loved that it was both - spooky and fun.
And from there, we found this sweet purple petti-coat, black-and-white striped stockings (because what's a witch without striped stockings), and this cute printed shirt.
Every good witch has a companion CAT, and because her little sister decided to be a TIGER instead of a black cat this year - that left Charley without a companion CAT.
So . . . while hunting for a shirt for her costume, I came across this one. It's a perfect match . . . and is darling under her black cape.
This is the FIRST year that our little ones want me to paint their faces. I can't wait to transform their sweet little faces into a TIGER, a green WITCH, and a skeleton.
What will your little ones be this Halloween?
