27+  DIY Kids Halloween Costumes

Isn’t Halloween super exciting??? Parties, tricks, treats, friends, costumes, jokes, scary movie nights… I love it!

But can I tell you a secret I haven’t enjoyed Halloween as much as I have this year. Maybe because of all of you my readers, maybe also because my girl is growing so I have a doll now LOL.

I remember that I made Long ago, back in university time, a Grim Reaper costume with all the accessories LOL. It was so much fun. Apart from that I don’t remember having actually made a costume or wore for that matter before. Weird huh? Where was I during my childhood???.

Aaaaanyway, this is the costume I made for Emma and me. I worked so hard on it because I’m not even a sewer and I didn’t even hat the patterns LOL. But I can assure you I had a lot of fun putting it together and it turned out super cute. Hope you like it
