I love Halloween! My daughter and I start planning her costume in the summertime and start piecing everything together little by little. This year we decided on her being a lion tamer/ring master from the circus. Below is a list of where we got everything for her costume.
Black jacket – Goodwill
Hat – Goodwill
Shoulder embellishments – Joann Fabrics
Ribbons and other jacket embellishments – Savers
Shorts – Sale rack at Old Navy
Gold buttons on shorts – Joann Fabrics
Ice skating tights – Pierce Skate and Ski
Red mesh arm warmers – Goodwill
Striped leg warmers (actually arm warmers) – Goodwill
Striped shirt – Aeropostale clearance online
Black boots – Target
Hoop – Hula hoop from Target wrapped in black and white duct tape also from Target
Lion dog costume – Target
All of the jacket embellishments were glued on using a hot glue gun. Gold buttons were sewn on. Hair and makeup were done by me! For her hair, I put her hair in two pigtails, separated them into smaller parts and crimped the pieces. Then we teased the crimped pieces up to make it look big and messy. To cover the ponytail holders, I took a piece of hair from the back of the pigtails and bobby pinned it over the ponytail holder.
Can’t wait to see what we come up with for next year!
