Halloween Costumes for Kids – Buy Handmade or Make Your Own

It’s almost Halloween – this will be Ava’s first and we cannot wait to dress her up and show her off!  If you’re like me, you do not possess the crafting skills [or the time to even find out if you do] to make your child’s costume.  Luckily, there are people out there who can make them for you!

This handmade cowgirl costume by Uniquery here in Chicago is sooo adorable.  Add your own accessories [hat, handkerchief, boots, and a stick pony] and send your little cutie galloping off into the sunset on a quest for candy.


How cute would your little man be in this tool belt onesie made by Rock N Rags?!  Sizes range from 0 – 18 months and you can request long sleeves.  Pair it with some jeans and boots and you’ll have your own mini carpenter!


These handmade costumes by Lover Dovers can be custom ordered in just about any size.  Love the Snow White and Pinocchio inspired pieces – so much better than the cookie cutter mass produced costumes in the stores!


And if you are the crafty type, there are tons of great costume ideas and “How To’s” [ranging from a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a robot to more traditional ideas like a vampire or witch] available on Kaboose.  They also have tons of Halloween crafts for you and your little ones, so be sure to check them out!

Have a safe and Happy Halloween and be sure to send me your handmade costume photos to post on the blog!!! XO!
