Can you believe it’s already the middle of October?! You know what that means … Halloween is quickly approaching, and if you’ve been following along with me for a while you’ll know that I always go ALL out with our costumes! And YES, I even include the dogs! LOL!
If you don’t already have your costume planned, or you have no idea what you want to dress up as this year, you have come to the right place! I’ve rounded up some of my favourite costumes from past years and have also included links to some of the items to help you recreate these costumes! Not to mention, there is a promo code for you at the end of this blog!!
1. Sandy from Grease
A few years ago Shay came up with some awesome last-minute costume ideas and not only are they cute but most of the items you can find right in your very own closet! One of these 4 costume ideas just so happens to be Sandy from Grease! Check out the rest of her ideas, here!
For Leo’s first Halloween we all dressed up as characters from the Wizard of Oz! I dressed up as the scarecrow, Leo was the lion (of course!), Justin was the tinman … and good ‘ol Nacho was Dorothy! 😂 You could also easily transform the scarecrow costume into a cowgirl costume too, just skip the scarecrow makeup, put your hair in two braids, throw on some cowboy boots and a plaid shirt and you’re ready to hit the town!
This Tinker Bell costume is perfect if you’re looking to go all out this year and if you have some extra time to create the perfect Tink dress and wig! I made my Tinker Bell outfit out of two-party skirts that I layered, I “edited” one of them and cut it a bit shorter … and the top piece was made out of a tube top that I dyed green with RIT dye!! I found my slippers at Value Village and glued pom poms to the top of them!! AND I bought a long blonde wig and I styled it myself to look like Tink’s up-do!
This Alice in Wonderland costume is another one of my favourites that we’ve done as a family! I’m not so sure if Justin agrees with me on that after wearing that massive bunny head but the photos were well worth it!
5. Star Wars
Last, but certainly not least if you caught the behind-the-scenes of our Halloween shoot last year you know that we decided to dress as Star Wars characters. All of our costumes were from halloweencostumes.com, that’s right, even Nacho and Peaches costumes! It truly is a one-stop-shop for all of your Halloween needs! And if you’re looking to order your Halloween costumes this year make sure to use code JillianHarris15 for a discount!
I can’t wait to reveal to you what we are dressing up as this year for Halloween, what do you think it could be? Take your guess in the comments below!
