last minute ghost and circus performer costume

ghost-and-rina-costumeAs a child I was a master at putting together a last minute costume for Halloween.  This usually involved an old grey wig, high heels, and random old clothing from my mother.  I think the only way I know how to put together a costume is last minute.  Both Henrik and Maja’s costumes were put together using found objects from our home and took less than 20 minutes…my kind of costumes.

Henrik was thrilled with his ghost costume and wants to wear it every minute that he can.  I’m glad it doesn’t take much to make him happy.

Maja’s Circus Performer costume was put together from this darling Wovenplay Lola suit, black tights, black ballet shoes, a painted bear mask (I cut off the ears), and a large Turkey feather.

    In all my (insert large number) years of celebrating Halloween I have never actually seen someone dressed as a sweet, simple ghost in real life. Props to H for rocking a classic!

    Very classic. Ghost costumes always remind me of It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.
