I love dressing up and that makes Halloween one of my favorite times of the year! When I was little, my mom always encouraged us to create costumes out of things we had on hand, rather than buying them pre-made at the store. So I especially love clever costumes where people think of something inventive out of clothes and household items that they already have. But some years, it’s all we can do to get any kind of costume, so in this year’s Halloween Costume roundup, I’m featuring both fully homemade costumes as well as costumes that combine some store-bought pieces in a creative way. Of course, all the costumes feature babywearing, since that’s pretty much our thing here, and also because I think babywearing is the obvious solution to taking a baby or toddler out trick-or-treating, especially if you also have older kids. In addition to keeping your baby warm and cozy (and not overstimulated by all the Halloween energy), another bonus is that you can dress up the baby carrier instead of the baby. This means you have a lot more room to get creative!
