My boys would like to be one of everything for Halloween. They have a few parties to go to and the school Halloween parade and then the big night. However, I'm only making them one costume, so any other ideas they'll need to create on their own or borrow from friends.
This year, after going back and forth what felt like a million times, Mr. P. decided to be Harry Potter (he's fully immersed in that world - reading the 4th book in the series now and I have to say, I can't wait til read aloud time at the end of each day. I think I may be more into it at this point?) Doodle decided on Draco Malfoy in order to compliment his brother's costume.
Here's a very easy wizarding robe that you can customize depending on which "house" your Harry Potter character resides.
If you want to enhance the costume, check out my wizarding wand tutorial! These scarves were on sale at Barnes and Nobles. And these lensless glasses were donated to our dress up area by my father.
