What inspired me was the prices of costumes in shops and the quality, I searched charity shops for the shirt and jeans and adapted them with rips and fur my sin absolute lives it and he can not wait to try it out trick or treating.

Ooops, I meant Bellatrix!

Here is my DD dressed as Belltrix Lestrange from the Harry Potter books, last Halloween. The dress was about £3 from eBay and we crimped her hair to make it look untidy.

This is my son wearing a costume I made for his sister about 10 years ago, although a little thread bare now its still our favourite, just a white sheet attached onto a headband to stop it slipping, I cut a circle for the face then added a white net panel and drew the face with black marker pen! then finally added strips of net on the top to give a hazy effect.Very quick and easy to take on and off, always gets lots of compliments!

Our Dalek costume - made from the fruit packaging (discarded) collected from supermarkets, cardboard, a plastic clothes basket and silver spray paint on top of it all. And a sink or toilet plunger for the zapper !

Other photo shows a different year when we did a skeleton costume from black clothes and the bones were cut out from cornflake packets ! Face paint applied too !

Last year we had a pirate and a ladybird fairy.
This year we will have Merida from Brave and Peppa Pig.

Here's DD after coating herself in blackberry juice whilst in the garden last summer. She is zombie obsessed like me.

GemmaTheCakeyLady Thu 17-Oct-13 18:47:15

My little Witchy-Woo last Hallowe'en! She was dressed up all day and not one person knocked on the door for Trick or Treat! Eh well, she still looked super cute, especially as she had only learnt to sit up 3 weeks before. :0)
