10 DIY Halloween Costumes for My Toddler

In a few more days, Mila will finally attend her first costume party: The Mommy Bloggers Philippines Halloween Party. You know how much I love dressing her up right? I would not pass on this chance to put together the cutest outfit for my little doll. Even if Halloween is not a real holiday in the Philippines, a lot of parents now are really making an effort to pick the best costume for their little one. I will be one of them.

I had a blast when I made Mila's Skeleton outfit last year. Since then, I decided to DIY all of Mila's Halloween costumes. Nothing wrong with the store bought ones. I just love how it challenges my creativity. May it be simple or extravagant, a win or a fail, I know I'd feel better knowing that she'll be unique. Oh, I am not a designer nor an artist. I still need inspirations and how-to's. Pinterest had been my friend as of late.

Out of a gazillion pin-worthy costumes, I listed the ones I think I can make and will be cute for Mila. Some of them has step-by-step instructions, thanks to the wonderful creative mommas sharing their talents (just follow the link). Maybe you can find inspiration for your little one too.

We have at least 2 parties to attend this year. Here's a preview of one of the costumes I'm making for Mila. Can you guess what it'll be?

Costume fitting. What will Mila be? Clue: Found on school fairs. ;) 

I haven't decided on the second or third. I may pick from the above list since the first one is not on the ten I listed. Or maybe an inspiration will come and I'll make a my own DIY Halloween costume again. What do you think?

  9. I've seen this list when I was looking for a Halloween costume for my daughter a year ago. I think they are too lovely than scary. I prefer spooky costume for the Halloween.

  10. The Audrey Hepburn costume is so charming. If I can find something like that for my 10 year old, I'd have her wear it, too.
