I don’t remember ever not making my own halloween costume. With the help of my mom, I had some great homemade costumes that I always thought rivaled the other kids store bought looks (notice the fancy Spanish dancer to the right of me in the image above). We always had fun imagining outfits and finding ways to complete the look using as many already-owned items as possible (one year I was an “exhausted mom” and dressed in my bathrobe, pajamas and crazy hair in curlers with dolls hanging off of me).
Even as an adult I look forward to finding items that embody who/what I am trying to be as closely to the real thing as possible. However, being that I’ve been gone pretty much all month has made finding a costume, or really any pre-Halloween decorations, a lower priority. If you’re like me this year and feel as though Halloween has snuck up on you, here are three last minute Halloween costumes that are easy as pie to whip up before Saturday (you probably even have some of these items in your closet already):
What are you dressing up as this year?!
