Last year, I posted about creative wheelchair costumes for disabled children. This year, we’re exploring best of the D.I.Y. costumes for kids. I know it’s a bit early, but I thought I’d post it while there’s still time to actually make some of these things!

And if you’ve made (or seen) a great homemade costume you don’t see here, I’d love it if you’d share it in the comments!

  3. These are all really clever. I am impressed. Except for the costumes they wear to Comic Con, my kids tend to wear costumes cobbled together from odds and ends we have found thrift shopping and in sales. This year, however, my 9 year old has decided he wants to be something very specific which has involved major tests of patience and skill on my part. I do not sew. I cannot sew. And yet I have spent hours upon hours adapting thrift store finds and crafting bits and bobs to construct his costume. I told him he better still fit into it for decades to come. I wish he had picked something as fun and simple as those featured on your blog today.

  6. Love them, especially the bandit and Rosie (but I’d make her a smaller sign.) If the grandkids lived anywhere nearby I’d be volunteering to make one.
