Halloween costume roundup!

DIY Halloween costumes for kids by Megan Nielsen Patterns

With Halloween just around the corner, we are lucky that our lovely neighborhood is very into Halloween (complete with street party!). People don’t normally get into Halloween in Australia, so the kids will be really excited to dress up and walk up and down the street. Now the question is whether they will try and convince me to make them anything new…  must admit i’m very tempted to make something ridiculous for Birdie now that she is a toddler… maybe Tinkerbell to match Buddy’s Peter Pan!

Anyway, I thought i’d share a little round up of costumes i’ve made for all my kiddos in case you are looking for any ideas!

I think the slogan for Rosie the Riveter should be “We can poo it”. :)
