Friday Favorites–Halloween Costumes

One of these years, I’m either going to host a Halloween party or find one to attend, just so I can wear a costume.  I’ve had an excuse to dress up exactly twice in all the years I’ve been married and I’m feeling way overdue.  I’m not sure what kind of costume it will be, but it will definitely involve a cape.  I mean seriously, how many excuses do you get in life to wear a cape?

I just watched my first-ever episode of Dr. Who a couple of weeks ago.  How have I been missing this?  I don’t even know where to begin to catch up, but I’ll be figuring it out.  I can’t believe I didn’t understand the importance of this Tardis Costume from Southern Fried Northern Chic.

One of those two costumes I mentioned I’ve worn was a witch, but my cape wasn’t nearly as fancy as this No-Sew Halloween Spiderweb Cape from Delia Creates.

This Giggly-Wiggly Octopus Costume shown on Costume Works is so cute, easy to make, and shouldn’t cost much.  Perfect!

I love a Halloween costume that can be used for something after the holiday is over.  These Princess Play Aprons from Gluesticks certainly fit the bill.

While we’re on the subject, check out these Princess Peasant Dresses from UCreate.  For extra fun, watch the video in the post.  I’ve watched it three times and can’t stop laughing.

This couples costume made to look like stick people from Team Ibrahim is funny, but that little stick baby just takes it up a notch.

This great Airplane Costume from Oh Happy Day is actually much easier than it looks, but you’ve got to find the hat and goggles.

There’s something I really love about the feathers on this Peacock Tutu from The Train to Crazy.

Since we’ve already gone to the birds (wha-wha), I’ll show you this cute-but-easy Last Minute Kids Owl Costume from Alpha Mom.
