Homemade Ghost and Rodeo Clown Costumes

When my kids were little I loved dressing them up for Halloween and taking them to the mall for contest. Here Kaylee is 6 years old and I made her a “REAL GHOST”. I love to work with makeup so I covered her face with a white/gray theater makeup and spitit glued bugs on her face. I back-combed her hair then sprayed a TON of hairspray holding it in place for the whole night. Then more bugs added to her hair. I tea died a white sheet and ripped it up. I sewed it onto a t-shirt so she could keep it on. She wore black tights under. The chain I got from Home Depot.

Zac age 2 LOVED his cowboy boots so we had to come up with a great idea for him. The shirt I made the year before for Kaylee’s clown costume so I just cut it from the pants and tucked it into his jeans. At the moment he wasn’t to happy to have all the face paint on but the night got better when he saw everyone dressed up.
