these days with the quality of store costumes at a all time low and lacking major creativity, i head straight to etsy.com or pinterest to get ideas for some one of a kind costumes for my girls to wear. thankfully, they have yet to beg for too many years of sparkly belle costumes, like we opted for a few years ago, and are easily talked into more custom looking costumes like stella's snow white costume from last year or her minnie mouse costume hanging in the closet for this year.
while i still try and decide if i need to pre-plan a costume for the boy, who just might be here before halloween, i wanted to share with you some of my favorite diy costumes i have seen around the web these days. you know my favorite part? most of these could be whipped up with things around the house or a quick and inexpensive trip to the fabric store!

what are your little ones going to be this year? rowan is going to be eloise, the famous plaza hotel resident trouble-maker; stella is minnie mouse, her current hero; and the verdict is still out on zoë but i know she has been leaning toward a labyrinth character, like bowie perhaps? if our little man is still held up inside i might opt for one of these hilarious preggo zombie ideas, ok that would be gross, but so clever!
