Hi! I’ve had some time to blog with my 5 year old back in school and my 2 year old still taking naps, so I’m starting this post as a preview for my 5 year old’s Halloween costume this year. It wasn’t easy trying to figure out how to get my son to make up his mind, but as soon as he heard “meat eating plant” he was all in on the idea! Keep reading to learn how to make your own DIY audrey 2 halloween costume!
This time we took a family trip to go get supplies at JoAnn Fabric. I used to have to drag my husband and both boys there, but since this pandemic has had us all cooped up, they’ve been much more enthusiastic about leaving the house!
The firs thing I took a look at was fabric. I selected some cotton. It’s relatively inexpensive and very easy to work with. Two shades of Green for the leaves and body. Some accent foliage looking print and some pink which will be the base for my mouth, and I’ll probably embellish the mouth with some purple acrylic paint to resemble the REAL Audrey 2!
Hi! So it’s been a while! My oldest is 5 and my youngest is 2 now!!!! Now I have twice the challenge for making super awesome DIY kids Halloween costumes! YAY! Before I move on to double trouble, I have to share one of my of oldest son’s amazing Halloween costumes! For those of you that have seen the movie Gremlins, I decided to make a Gizmo costume that was to die for! I always go into each project not knowing how the heck I’m going to pull it off and it always seems to come together.
As always I headed to my favorite store JoAnn Fabric to look for what I needed. I feel like they have a great selection of various types of fabric and I know I’d seen some furry looking fabric before. I chose a few that had the longest looking faux fur I could find. Be aware you need to know your child’s measurements before you go and grab your fabric.
For this post, I do not have a lot of step by step pictures as I am a doer and have a super hard time documenting when I’m in the swing of things, but I can demonstrate by adding drawings a descriptions that will help.
In this post I will show you how to make your very own Oogie Boogie Halloween Costume! Like most first time mom’s whose adorable little baby has now learned to walk, I got super excited for Halloween! While pondering about what I wanted my son’s first Halloween costume to be I had a couple guidelines in place I felt were crucial.
With these rules I set in place for myself I thought “wow, I really love a challenge!” The internet was a great place to start for inspiration. I started googling classic Halloween movies for kids and one of the first to pop up was “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” This was perfect! I absolutely love all Tim Burton movies and this was definitely one of my favorites! Now that I had my movie, picked out I instantly thought “Oogie Boogie!”
