I am writing about costume ideas for boys with the hope that it may spark some wonderful idea for a costume for my son.  At age 9, he is so worried about having an older kids costume.  The other day he said he wanted to be a Vampire Bat but when we went to Simplicity to look at bat patterns, he said they all looked like Little Kid costumes.
Here are a few boy's costume ideas from year's past

Will from The Rangers Apprentice (one of our favorite series of books)  This costume was quite simple.  The most important element was the cloak.  I made two cloaks from the same Simplicity pattern last year.  One for Ben and the other for Lily who was Arwen from the Lord of the Rings.  For the rest of his costume I made a shirt from a pirate costume and a quiver sewn with faux leather.  We found a wooden button in the shape of an oak leaf from JoAnns for his necklace (shown in his hand.)  Ben also carried his long bow that he inherited from his Great Grandfather.  We passed on the knives the Rangers Apprentice carries much to Bens dismay. He was so excited that we emailed this photo to John Flannagan (the series author) and actually got a very nice note back from him!

That same cloak pattern will come in handy this year as Emma is going to be Hermione and Lily is going to be Ginny Weasley.  I am going to make their school cloaks out of black fleece.

I also posted photos of an Indiana Jones, Cowboy and Indian Costume here: http://makeitdo.wordpress.com/2009/09/30/a-few-halloween-costume-ideas-for-boys/  I would love to hear of any great ideas as my 9 year old is having a hard time deciding what he wants to be this year and I am running out of time!


Make it Do
