Why do I feel like I am ALWAYS scrambling at the last minute for Halloween costumes? The creative pressure, the DIY, the options – it just seems to paralyze me every year! Anyone else like this?!
Well, as I was chatting with the ladies at Castle House, and a customer called looking for a veil for her little girl’s Bride Halloween costume. UM how genius! It inspired me to put together a local list for last minute costumes for kids and parents alike. Here are some fun ideas you can pull together without circling the highway twice.
Bride | Castle House
Grab a viel that’s out of season from Castle House (those will have a good discount) and pair it with a white dress/tutu – Done!
Grab a robe from Knickers for yourself, curlers from Ulta and some stuffed cats from King Arthur’s – this one is hilarious!
These sweet tutu dresses are perfect for a costume and can also be reused over the year as cute dresses. Head to Claire’s for a tiara or play jewelry.
Fiona the Hippo | Cincy Shirts
Want to go the very lazy route? Grab a Fiona + HallZOOween shirt from Cincy Shirts in the Square and you’re golden.
Cat or Cheeta | Gap
Literally using this one for my little girl. Grab cat ears or a headband and black leggings. So cute!
DIY Costumes | Michaels
Feeling like getting crafty this weekend? Head to Michaels and give it a go with this awesome Mermaid costume. Good luck!
Dress Up Costumes | King Arthur’s Toys
I called and they have tons of dress up costumes to choose from!
