ten minute costumes are my fave

October 22, 2013

I don’t think I knew that store bought Halloween costumes existed as a child. My mom would somehow find a way to whip up seven costume requests, often tirelessly the night before. While I didn’t inherit her sewing skills, I did inherit her diy attitude. Here are three costumes that can be pulled together in 10 minutes or less with items you probably already own.

The Marathon Runner:

The Original Mouseketeer (this will score you big points with the 60+ crowd):

For more easy diy costume ideas, my friend Kelly has an awesome series that’s definitely worth a look.

PS The only way I could get Beck to sit still and not pull the hats off was to turn on a Taylor Swift music video. That’s why he has the same glossy eyed expression in every photo.
