The Magic of Costumes + 100 DIY Halloween Costumes Tutorials

What is it about costumes that are so special? Is it that we can be something or someone else for a while? Or is it that they allow us to feel the magic of a character? I’ve always loved using costumes no matter if it was Halloween or just any show at school. My girl seems to feel the same way and I enjoy so much making her magic real even if it’s for a little while. Today some halloween costumes tutorials come so handy!

The Magic of Costumes + 100 DIY Halloween Costumes Tutorials

I remember when I was in middle school; I was asked to create a choreography for the girls in 6th grade. They had to represent Brazil and since they knew I was born there, they wanted me to help. Little did they know I left Brazil at the age of 6 LOL. But my mom knew lots about it, even dancing the Samba, so I accepted and with her help, I came up with a cute choreography using as inspiration Carmen Miranda on The 3 Caballeros Disney Movie!


Her outfit was our costumes. Sadly, back then pictures were not so common and I only have one and doesn’t look so good but here it is, I’m the one on the right at the age of 11 LOL. I was so excited and nervous about wearing that costume and dancing in front of the whole school!


So many nice memories! Now I make my girl’s costumes as magical as I can just to see her smile and happy.

Last year I made a matching mommy and daughter owl costume for us. I made them all in felt and we were so excited to go out and trick or treat people together. I also made a Dracula cape for my brother and helped him with the make up and we went all together enjoying our Halloween!

Last July, I had to improvise a butterfly costume for her end of year school show. I’m on a tight budget so I REALLY had to improvise. I found the wings and the tinker bell skirt on a party store on sale and some cheap ballet top and tights {it’s worth to say now she’s using them for her ballet classes LOL}.


That was the easy part. The hardest part was her makeup. I had never made face painting in my life. I had to paint my girl’s face a couple of times before the actual show day. I wanted to make a butterfly on her face, so practice makes perfect, right?


Well, I didn’t get that perfect but she was absolutely thrilled with her makeup!!! She felt so confident and excited. And that’s all that mattered to me! What do you think?
