With a little bit of imagination and some good supplies you can make these extremely creative costumes for your kids easily by yourself. Check these ideas out.
Scary Character
Scary costumes are a classic when it comes to Halloween costumes. With some supplies at hand, you can design and create brilliant costumes. Opt for the classic white ghosts in gowns costumes with a dead face make up, or use your imagination to create something new. Zombies are scary, too. Dress your kid up in some old clothes and give them a weathered effect. With some face painting ideas, you can add a dramatic effect to the character. Apply some blood make up and white color to make the face look pale, you can also consider adding dark circles to the eyes. Then take red color to add a 'blood dripping down' effect. You can also splash some red color on the clothes.
Cartoon
You can also consider making a costume that resembles your child's favorite cartoon character. For example you can use a box to make him a Spongebob, you can use a pretty pink dress and a blonde hair wig to dress your little girl as a Barbie. Or you can use the superhero theme, and dress up your boy as Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Wolverine, etc.
Fairy Tale Characters
These work brilliantly for girls. From Alice in the Wonderland, Fiona Shrek, Rapunzel, Cinderella, Tinkerbell, Red Riding Hood, Snow White, to Fairy Godmother, you can find a lot of inspiration, thanks to Disney. You may easily find these at a store, or you can consider stitching the costume yourself.
Hippie
Teens will love this idea, and with a little creativity you can come up with very cool and interesting costumes. Some colorful pants and tops with big and bright flowers tucked behind your ear can give you the hippie look. Bell bottom pants for guys, with a white shirt, brown jacket, and a brown headband can complete the look. Girls can wear short colorful dresses, and lot of beads necklaces to look like a true hippie. High boots with dresses look great on girls. Boys can also use boots or wear colorful slippers. Round or heart shaped funky specs can also be used to add to the overall look.
Mummy
These qualify as the best last minute Halloween costumes. Just put on some white clothes, and then all you need to do is use a lot of gauze bandage and just keep it rolling around the body, and keep some space on the face free for the eyes and mouth. You can do many things to make it a unique outfit. You can sprinkle some blood around the mouth, or sprinkle dark reddish-brown color on the body for a dried up blood effect.
Pirate
How could we possibly leave out Captain Jack Sparrow from this list. You can find various supplies for pirate costumes in any of the holiday stores. For girls, you can design a look characterized by a striped skirt, a white top, pirate hats, bandannas, and swords. Guys can dress up with pants, boots, white shirts, big buckle belts, pirate hats, swords, and a black patch for the final touch.
Use these ideas straight up or improvise on them, the choice is yours. But, rest assured, it will be one of your most scary, adventurous, and unique Halloween, ever.
