Considering that fact that Amanda and I (and our girls) have wardrobes that are 99% vintage/thrifted/DIY, it's no surprise that our little ones' Halloween costumes fit those criteria.
Here's a look at their outfits-- Aurora as a cowgirl and Lyla as a kitty cat!
Aurora's singin' cowgirl costume........
Cowgirl hat- Gymboree/thrifted, $2
Vintage blouse- thrifted for $2
Vintage leather vest-thrifted for $5
Vintage skirt via MsTips on Etsy, $10
Cowgirl boots, $5
Mini guitar- her 2nd birthday gift from Mama and Dada
Despite the fact that every time I asked Lyla what she wanted to be for Halloween she would say "a cow!"...I convinced her that a cat would be a fun idea (she was a skunk last year and I didn't want another black and white costume).
White hat and mittens: $1 each (Walmart)
DIY ears: hand sewn from a ruined cashmere sweater
Tights: $2.50 (Walmart)
DIY onesie (already owned): fabric glued spots cut from same sweater.
Eyes and nose- my own eye liner!
We think it is so much more fun to put together a homemade look, like these, rather than buy a costume straight from the store. It also guarantees your little one's look will be one of kind!
