Ahhh…my favorite holiday of the year! The one day with a legit excuse to dress as an alter ego, hoard candy and bring out your inner child. Its also an opportunity to put your creative juices to use and create an awesome DIY costume. Love, love, love Halloween!
Growing up my mom always made our costumes and after spending money to buy a few for my kids I’ve recently taken to this tradition a few years ago. This time around I got a chance to work on zombie costumes. A trip to our local Goodwill was perfect to find cheap clothing that could be torn and bloodied without regret.
Do you know how liberating it is to tear up clothes?
After talking it over with my two older boys, we went with nuclear themed zombies and left the face gore to their cousins who also dressed as zombies. Kairo’s bio hazard mask and glowing mouth piece is missing in this photo. Oh, and little Batman is definitely on a sugar high!
I LOVE Pinterest for so many reasons. This project was inspired by a how-to I found on the site during Christmas. Over the holiday, I made it a point to handmake a third of the presents I gifted and this was just perfect. You can buy similar bracelets to this one at Urban Outfitters for about $20.
