We started the annual process of picking out what to be for Halloween this year and could not figure it out for the life of us. We took a trip to the local thrift store, saw the leather jacket and BOOM we had it!! We decided on a Homemade Bad Danny and Sandy from Grease Couple Costume

Danny: After we had the $4 leather jacket, we stopped at Michaels on the way home and picked up 5 sheets of white foam. I googled the T Birds jacket, printed out the letters, traced them onto the foam sheets and cut out the letters & Bird. All we needed was a little gorilla glue and BAM – there’s your jacket!! I purchased an Elvis wig and everything else we had at home, white socks, white shirt, black belt & black dress pants. Total cost: $30 – the wig was $20

Sandy: All I really needed for Sandy was the blonde wig, of course we waited until the last minute and blonde wigs were obsolete at that point. We purchased a Miss Piggy wig, I cut the nose attachment off and used a little Frizz-Ease product to get the wig super smooth. I found a good pair of leggings, a black top in my closet, a black leather bomber jacket & borrowed my friend’s red shoes. Total cost: $30 for the wig

It was by far one of the best Halloween costume idea EVER, we had so much fun!!!

Coolest Homemade Karate Kid Shower Costume

Homemade Karate Kid Shower Costume

Homemade Karate Kid Shower Costume

Everyone loves a homemade costume referencing pop culture from the 80’s. I love the irony of creating a Halloween costume from movie character’s Halloween costume. For the record, every guy at the party instantly knew who I was in my Homemade Karate Kid Shower Costume, but all of the girls were clueless. All the materials cost about $65, but it was well worth every penny.

I purchased a wooden fabric wheel and the red and white fabric for the shower curtain from a local fabric store. The hoop is supported by two copper pipes that attached to a wood board. The board fits perfectly in a backpack; the waist strap was needed to keep the whole shower from falling forward over me. A third piece of pipe attached to an empty aluminum soup can with silver tassels to serve as the shower head with running water.

The final touch was an old white t-shirt that I cut for a head band; I drew the Karate Kid markings on the headband with a Sharpie.

The shower fit three people comfortably!

Coolest "I Spy" Costume

Homemade "I Spy" Costume

This "I Spy" Costume was so fun and easy to make, economical too. It won a prize at school for my son. He loves reading "I Spy" books and I wanted to find a costume he would really like. So, why not be a walking "I Spy"?

We purchased some sweats, and then went to the dollar tree. I bought all sorts of random toys and things to stick on. I hot glued them all over the sweats.

For the hat, I listed 10 items that people would try to "spy". I then attached it to sticky glitter paper (Michael's) and put it around a piece of posterboard I had rolled into a tube shape. I then insterted the tube over a magicians' hat (from last years' costume) and attached it with staples. I also attached a small plastic magnifying glass over the "I" in the "I Spy" logo.

Kids had a great time trying to "spy" everything on my son's costume, he just enjoyed being a human "I Spy".

Total cost $25
