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.
Or you could choose a classic costume with a suede vest and fringes at the bottom. Along with brown pants with fringes as well this makes a real country cowgirl. And of course, don’t forget that cowgirl hat to put on. Sometimes you get these along with a costume or you can purchase them separately. Either way, without a hat, you can’t really call yourself a cowgirl not can you.
Werewolf Cheap halloween Costume for kids. One of my teenage daughters helped me with this idea. My 8 year old will be going as just this type of werewolf this year. Start with a black or brown outfit. If your child doesn’t have black or brown pants, dark blue jeans would go with a black shirt. Long sleeved is best for a werewolf costume. You can even choose browns as light as tan for this cheap costume.
Face painting can be an excellent way to make your child’s Avatar costume truly theirs. Apply a base coat of blue bodypaint to the neck, ears, face and lips. Then paint black stripes, radiating from the crown to the center of the face. Apply blush for a bit of color, then paint tiny dots in white between the lines. Your child can put on paper ears using bobby pins. They can also stick feathers in their hair using the same technique.
Some of these costumes are quite expensive while some others are sold at discounted rates. The costumes for kids and adults usually differ. Kids costumes are usually based on fairy tales and other comic and story book characters.
Making a quick which costume is very, very simple. The only thing you really need to purchase is the witch hat, some make-up (possible dark green for the face), and a broom made out of straw. If you child wants a cape, you can purchase a very inexpensive one or you could even use a simple black bed sheet.
For girls, they can dress up as Wilma or Betty and if a child dresses like the first of the two then they need only dye their head red or wear a red wig unless they are a natural red head. Slap on a necklace of pearls with the costume and they’ll look like a mini-Wilma and no necklace is even needed for Betty.
The Mike Jordan Outfit: Dress them up like a famous athlete, movie star or famous positive role model that they admire. This is fun to do as a group, because then the kids can help and encourage each other. A group of motivated kids can do a great job of turning this into a successful event. Get each child to find a cool saying, quote or song lyric from the star written on their treat bag.
