I like the tight Capri pant idea with maybe white or colored socks underneath. You can always add fun buttons to the bottom side seams for something fun.

Fleece would work well and it is pretty cheap. You might want to stuff it to keep the shape.

I found a site on how to make smurf costumes. They are adult size - but it will lend you ideas. They even show you how to make a hat.

Since you are dressing up little ones - what about using blue long sleeve shirts and blue tights. You can get blue gloves to cover up the skin and keep them warm. The only paint you need is the face.

Did you ever see that movie from 1993 with Alicia Silverspoon called THE CRUSH. She played a crazy 14 year old student that went nuts when the advances she made to her teacher were rejected. That movie should give you some good ideas on how to act. 

Of course you need the crazy unkept hair, smeared makeup, lipstick all mushed over your lips, shirt with the guys image or name written all over.

Gee...I haven't had too much luck dying wigs that are synthetic. Most box dyes are designed to attach to human hair not plastic. I would find out if your wig is totally synthetic - if not, find out what is made of and take it down to your local beauty supply and ask them (Sally's Beauty Supply) They are pretty helpful when it comes to dying anything, they have done it all. If you purchase a product, you might want to clip a tiny piece off from under the wig and test it before ruining the whole wig.

That is a very cute costume. You can always add rhinestones to the eye patch to make it cute or use pink ribbon to tie around her head. Most likely she will take it off and lose it - I would if I was her age.

Why not go for a Burlesque costume? Top hat, fishnets, black heets, gloves, ribbons, feathers etc. Something out of Moulin Rouge? If you have ever seen that film, they have a song about how diamonds are a girls best friend - you could class it up yet keep it suitable for school.

VERY CUTE! You did a great job. I used to watch that show when I was a kid. Harley Quinn was a great character - but I liked Poison Ivy.  If you do a plush one of her - I would love to see it!

All politics aside, I think the suit, hair and glasses are a must. I think you can get those cheap frames at the drugstores without a prescription (If anything you can pop the lenses out). To add to the comedy you can carry around a hockey stick, and a plush bull dog. (I like the VPILF button idea!)

You can get ideas for the costume and how to act from the SNL skit with Tina Fey.
People online did an article on how Tina Fey got the hair like Sarah.....

29  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: y do kids costumes suck? on: October 01, 2008 03:54:29 PM
I agree that the store costumes are too commerical pushing the sexy factor a little too soon. I have seen crop tops, short shorts etc on the smallest of girls. My boss had to struggle with her 7 year old daughter last year with wanting a too sexy devil costume. 

I like the idea of doing something with history with your daughter. Make it a learning experience for her. The roman toga idea is great - it is comfy and cheap and she can learn about ancient Rome. If not Rome, Egypt, the roaring twenties, the 70's etc, a beautiful Geisha, etc?




What way she can about other times/cultures as you help to create her costume. See what she is learning in school and she what sparks her interest.

See if you have any black yoga pants - you know the kind that have really wide legs? If not, do you have a long black skirt? You can make yourself a girlie pirate. Here is some examples.







See if you can find a scarf or a wrap that you can tie around your head. If not, borrow from a friend or take a trip to Walmart. They have some cheap ones in the women's section. Add some cheap hoop earings - also at Walmart.

Do you have any boots or can borrow some from a friend? If not, you can wear tights with black shoes to give the look of boots.

The key part is the eye patch - take some black string or ribbon and make one of out of fabric. You can paint a skull on it using paint or even white out.

The best thing about Pirates is they are not suppose to the Disney perfect stereotype. Pirates are a jumble of everything and that is what makes them pirates! See if you can raid your friends closets or thrift store and put together something. Oh and be sure to rock the pirate lingo too!
