Costumes from famous people are not only popular, they are fairly easy to put together. The best way to dress your kids in a famous person costume is to go with the outfit the famous person is most noted for. For instance you can dress up as Waldo from the where’s Waldo books by putting on a striped red/white shirt with blue pants and a red and white stocking cap.
Tony told me a little bit about the ACCEL program itself. Formed in 2007, ACCEL’s mission is to get younger business professionals active in the community. ACCEL holds four to five events per year, including holiday themes such as costumes for kids at Halloween.
After the success of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, latest outfits have been released just this year. If you are searching one for your teen, then Mad Hatter look is the hottest pick for this year’s celebration. Mad Hatter outfit is usually composed of colorful pants with matching jacket and bubbly hat. Your teen will likely enjoy the undoable costume which comes with a Mad Hatter and a Cheshire Cat costume at once. Give your teen a chance to become the star of the party by putting on such a fantastic costume. Let her greet the guest and make some head turns throughout the party. But of course, teens will also enjoy some accessories such as glasses and headpiece that will definitely represent Mad Hatter.
Cut two large circles out of the cardboard. Paint the circles in the M&M color that you chose. Draw “M&M” on both pieces of cardboard circles. Use the string to hang it over the child’s shoulders, front and back like a sign.
This look is quite easy to attain. All you will need is a black sweatshirt or shirt, black pants or skirt, black nail polish, and possibly face paint. Obviously, your child will be clad in all black but to make your costume a little cooler you can paint his or her face white. Then, put black lipstick or face paint on their lips and eyelids. Don’t forget to paint their nails black as well. Also consider fake lip and nose rings for added effect.
Write “Crayon” down the side in marker. Use the construction paper to make a cone shaped hat to look like the top of the crayon. You can use hair clips to keep it on or string under the chin. Use face paint to be the same color as the crayon.
Smartie Pants: Get yourself a bag of mini-box Smarties, eat the Smarties of course and then flatten the boxes out. Then pick out an outfit that’s all one colour – pink, green, red, yellow, whatever colour you like. You want to cover your whole body in this colour. Start with two pairs of thick black stockings – your tops and bottoms. And then get yourself a plain t-shirt, short or long-sleeved, maybe some shorts in the same colour. The stockings you will wear over your upper body, so cut out a space for your head. Get yourself some cheap white runners and spray paint them the same colour as your outfit. And now you’re ready to use tacky glue to attach the boxes onto your outfit and a plain ski hat if you have one.
Use cardboard to make a throne backing for the wheelchair. Use gold and red paints to decorate the throne, including cardboard front and sides around the wheelchair. Dress your child as a king or queen complete with crown and scepter. (If a parent or attendant goes with the trick-or-treat, they can dress as the court jester or a page to serve the King or Queen.) For a twist go as King Neptune by decorating the throne with seashells and plastic fish and holding a trident.
