If you followed along until now, you might have already noticed what our family costume idea was. I like it when we dress up together (last year we were all Winnie the Pooh). This year I decided that instead of all being the same thing, we’ll dress up as costumes that work together.
I decided we’ll do something Loony Tunes-ish. My husband dressed up as Elmer Fudd, I was Bugs Bunny and M dressed up as a carrot.
Why a carrot?
Well, I thought it would be cute because Elmer Fudd hunts Bugs Bunny, and Bugs Bunny is always eating a carrot… Yup! I dressed up my tot as Bugs Bunny’s carrot!
I actually did this for Purim (last March) – the Jewish holiday where we dress up. We actually don’t celebrate Halloween, though I’ve been sharing with you some great ideas here anyway. So, M was eighteen months old then, not walking, but he adored his carrot costume!
Mine and my husband’s costume were really just accessories. All of these costumes are frugal, as most of it can be reused afterward as clothing, and all of them are no-sew (I used a glue gun.)
You can see the tutorials for each one below. I also included recommendations for how to dress to make it a full body costume.
Looney Tunes Inspired Family Costume Idea:
1. DIY BENDY BUNNY EARS (Bugs Bunny Inspired):
(My toddler modeled it for this photo, but I wore it…)
3. DIY NO SEW CARROT COSTUME FOR TODDLERS (BUGS BUNNY’S CARROT):
And here, of course, is our whole family wearing our beautiful costumes (or costume accessories…)
It was really nice to have costumes that allowed us to wear regular clothing – we were comfortable all day long. I ended up putting an extra shirt underneath M’s short-sleeved shirt as it was a bit chilly. But, I found one with orange sleeves so it fits right in.
Anyway, I figured I’d share it with you now that many of you are working on your Halloween plans. I hope you enjoyed my family costume idea!
