Halloween is here and it’s a fun time for the kids as they get to dress up in their favorite characters. We were invited to a Halloween Bash a couple of days ago by a dear friend of mine (it was a blast!)..but being the busy bee that I am, I
forgot had no time to pick up costumes for my little ones! That good ole’ Mom Guilt sunk in for a second, but I snapped out of it and knew that I would have to get creative, fast. I asked Olivia who she wanted to dress up as for Halloween this year and she said “Princess Anna from Frozen!”…she has a good number of frozen outfits including an Anna costume that she used to play dress up in, so this was easy for me to do.
So I quickly put this costume together in less than an hour in these simple steps below!
Step One: I grabbed one of my longest wigs, long enough to braid two pig-tails just like Princess Anna’s. I sewn an elastic band inside of the wig because the wig is originally fit for my big adult sized head. The band will just help the wig fit Olivia’s toddler head. I did not do anything special with er hair underneath, just left it in her high ponytail because I knew she would not want to wear the wig for long (and she snatched it off 20 minutes into the party) lol…
Step Two: I applied & adjusted the wig on to her head, can you tell that she was enjoying this? lol
Step 3: I divided the wig in half, then began braiding the two large braids.
Step Four: Once the two big braids were finished, Olivia put on her Princess Anna costume to make the look come together.
Step Five: Add some finishing touches and you have Princess Anna!
I let out a huge sigh of relief after this we finished her costume! It may have not been the best, but it was the best in her sweet eyes and that is all that mattered to me!
Mommy’s, it’s totally okay if you get a little busy and don’t have much time to put into your children’s Halloween costumes, birthday parties, etc…just put your creative hat on and use resources around you like Pinterest (one of my favorite go-to’s when I need creative inspiration).
What are you and your little ones going to be for Halloween this year?
