OK. So you totally dropped the ball. Halloween is here, and you’re likely stuck in one of two scenarios:
1) Elsa costumes are sold out in every physical store in a 60 mile radius around you.
2) She no longer wants to be Elsa, despite the fact that you drove to every physical store in a 60 mile radius around you.
Sound familiar? It’s the exact scenario I’m facing, and it’s the 11th hour. H-day is upon us!
No worries, mama. If like me and you’re not content to just scoot your kiddo out the door as a makeshift witch (for the 3rd year in a row), I’ve got you covered with these creative costume ideas that you can likely throw together with stuff you have around the house.
This mime costume is seriously so, so easy. You probably have everything you need to put it together already! Add some face paint and a charismatic little one and you are good to go! Tutorial and photo via And We Play.
