GROUPS: Monster Family Costume

It’s hard to believe that it’s already September! All of a sudden it starts to feel like fall, and in my house at least, my kids start brainstorming ideas for Halloween costumes. Sometimes I think that planning what you’re going to wear is half of the fun! We’ve never done a coordinated family costume, but I just love the idea. I especially love it when the baby of the family matches everyone else. Plus kids get a kick out of it when their parents dress up too.

Well how adorable is this monster family costume by Tell Love and Chocolate? The whole family includes: Frankenstein, the Bride of Frankenstein, an adorable little mummy, and a cute baby bat. You can check out all of the details and tutorials of each of these costumes, plus helpful links to some make-up and face painting videos.


GROUP: Words with Friends

My clever friends in Chicago came up with this handmade group costume! And it just so happes to be one of my favorite past times… Word with Friends! This costume is simple to make and almost free. Everyone wears black clothes, then find some old cardboard boxes and spray paint yellow, paint one letter on your yellow cardboard square. Next, attach the cardboard square to ribbon or to suspenders and start making words with your friends!
