Halloween Costumes Ideas

PUNK ROCKER:
Start with a pair of jeans and a plain white T-shirt. Use a black
marker to draw a large "anarchy" symbol on the T-shirt. Finish off
the look with some gelled spikes and a spray of brightly colored
hair
paint. Attitude not included!

PIRATE: Ahoy there, matey!
For an easy pirate costume, dirty up a white undershirt and tear a
few holes in it. Cut the legs of a pair of oversized jeans (you can
pick them up at a thrift store for a few dollars) to calf-length and
clip the ends so they look frayed, then tie a rope belt around the
waist. Tie a bandana on your child's head, pirate style, and use
face-
paint to draw on a thin moustache and goatee. If your child will
tolerate it, add a clip-on hoop earring and an eye patch.

LITTLE DEVIL:
Begin with a red turtleneck, a pair of red tights or leggings, and
shiny black boots. She found a red devil's horns headband, but you
can simply glue red cardboard horns to a regular red headband.
Finish
the look with red face paint (be careful to keep it away from your
child's eyes) and a cape made out of a black trash bag cut into a
bell shape and attached to the back of the turtleneck with black
electrical tape.
