My 3 year old wants to be a "pink kitty cat."  She's already gone as a pink poodle before, but she doesn't remember.  I'm going simple and looking for pink sweats (I'll be thrilled if I can find a plain pink hoodie!).  Then I"ll just add ears and a tail.

My oldest turns 8 on Halloween, and she's not sure what she wants to be.  She kinda wanted to be a carhop, but since she was "good Sandy" last year, it would be very similar.  And since we live in the midwest, odds are good that it will be pretty cold (midwest children's costuming requires a coat contingency: either the costume must have a coat that blends as part of the outfit, or the costume must fit over a coat... or several layers of clothing.)  Of course the one year I try to go the easy route and buy her a furry, warm costume, it was hot and rainy.  Good times.


I know a little garden close
Set thick with Lily and red Rose
Where I would wander if I might
From dewy dawn to dewy night.

Ugh! isn't it always like that? The year in college I had the smokin' hot mermaid costume it was in the upper 50's, the next year I did full Renn Fest gear as a wench (about 4 layers of clothing) and it was 85, bleah.

I think I might win this year, my girls decided they want to be superheroes (their own kind, not Wonderwoman or Supergirl) we can just add layers of tights & their dance leotards underneath if it's chilly.

My 5yr old is going to be Crow T. Robot from Mystery Science Theater 3000. Yeah, we're a little weird. But the cast is going to be at a convention in our area at the beginning of October, so I have a little more than a week to finish the construction.

I love costuming, and I have to say that small children make much better testers/models for a project you are winging when they are asleep. Particularly if you can get your two-year old to pass out while sitting up on the couch, then you can start with a basic design and gradually fit it to him. Or you can find a ski mask/balaclava that fits him well and use that as your pattern.
