Make everyone happier by spreading joy with this Marshmello DIY! This two-piece costume includes Marshmello’s helmet and his DJ set – his helmets are available for sale online, but we suggest trying to craft this up with some cardstock and paint on your own.
It may not compare to Marshmello’s actual flashy LED lights and bassy set, but this costume could afford to be even cooler if you blast some Marshmello’s tunes along the way. Other kids (and adults) may even end up busting some moves – and that’s when you know your child’s costume is more than a conversation starter.
Aladdin can show Jasmine a whole new world, just like how your kid probably did so for you. Having Aladdin return a few months back in May, there is no timelier year to reintroduce the character during Halloween – and who better to come in this costume than someone who opened up the joyful world of parenthood for you?
Grant your child’s wishes and recreate the look of Aladdin by putting your child in some white, baggy yoga-styled pants and DIY-ing with some fabric. All it takes is to wrap the yellow cloth around the pants to form a waistband, and to build on the outfit with Aladdin’s signature red fez and purple vest. You can even add a stuffed monkey in place of his trusty sidekick Abu.
You could make a joke out of this one if your little girl is as good at belting as Adele is. A potential last minute costume, this Halloween outfit requires minimal effort, really only needing a black dress and the ability to style and accessorise like Adele. The trick here is to nail Adele’s signature cat-eye makeup look and wavy chestnut hair – and some statement earrings, if you wish. If you’re feeling ambitious, we think the Grammy Award is an awesome touch, too.
For the mums with their bundles of joy, fancy some takeout? Having a baby doesn’t mean you have to skip out on the Halloween fun – in fact, having your family go as a whole ensemble would look even cuter with a super young one.
Blogger Jean Wang came up with a DIY on how to construct your very own Nigiri sushi costume with some white swaddle and easy-to-find materials. The best part of it is that the Nigiri is essentially a pillow, so it’s ensured to be comfy for your baby – and you can shift it to the front or back depending on what’s works for you. Remember to also check out the costume DIYs for the Soy Sauce and Sushi Chef to complete the look!
5. Makeup Store Employee
Here’s a cute and easy one for the beauty gurus – all you have to do is gather your materials after you’re done dolling yourself up. This look is pretty much done once your girl has been placed in a black t-shirt (with or without a makeup brand name) and a pair of black leggings – and for the finishing and also most important touch, the makeup brush waist bag – which you can easily DIY. End off with a high bun or ponytail to give a sweet and sassy allure to this unconventional Halloween outfit! If you’re hosting a party, maybe you can even let your guests sit in for your child’s 15 minute makeover on a first-come-first-serve basis.
6. Elvis Presley
Bring back the good ol’ times this Halloween! Doing the Elvis Presley quiff with shampoo for laughs and giggles is fun with your child, but consider bringing that look outside of the bathroom – shower time isn’t the only time to rock his iconic look! Besides the hairdo, up your game by bejewelling a suave white jacket with some rhinestones to replicate the bomber he used to wear. Be sure to match it with a pair of bell bottoms equally as white to transform your child into the King of Rock and Roll!
Your child’s going to be the hit of the streets with this one – nothing but a Pinata will put a smile as bright on everyone’s faces! This costume requires more time and effort to put together because of its detail, but the cutting and sewing would definitely be worth it. If you don’t have a lot of time on your hands though, try experimenting with crepe paper and hot-melt adhesives – they may not be as durable, but you would still get the colourful and ruffly Pinata effect for the costume.
8. Sadness from Inside Out
Don’t know what to do with that blue sweater sitting in your closet? You don’t have to wait for Christmas to make it appropriate – pull it over your child for Halloween! Simply pick up some face paint, a blue wig and a pair of round and geeky glasses to pull it off – we assure you the process is anything but Sadness, especially once the both of you start mimicking Sadness’ facial expressions and Phyllis Smith’s awesome voice acting. This also opens up the option of your family going in different characters from Inside Out!
9. Old Lady
If your toddler is still toddling around, consider getting her a walker or a walking stick – her gait will probably make her the cutest old lady around. Emphasise the adorable irony of making the youngest one in your family the oldest with a long, printed dress and a cardigan. If you’re committed to pulling this off, we also recommend white hair and a pair of chained spectacles. We’re pretty sure the old lady act’s got it all covered by your kid already.
