Halloween Costumes for the kiddos

I am incredibly picky about Halloween costumes. I don't like it when little kids wear really gory or scary things, I think the stuff that is super mainstream is boring, and I find a lot of kid's costumes (especially little girl's costumes) to be inappropriate or sexist beyond belief. I love to see costumes that are original, creative, and extra points for homemade.  I personally, can not sew to save my life, but I try to put together something sweet and interesting for Ronan's costume each year.  I know that once he gets older he will probably go for the ubiquitous "power range type thing of the moment costume" and I may have to try and work with that. Sigh. But while he is little, I get to choose! I've been scouring the internet for fun and interesting costumes and have come up with a few amazing standouts! Check these out! A lot of creative and talented parents out there! Props! Here are my favorites...

Monsieur Champignon... fun!

Frida Kahlo. I just ADORE these costumes!

How amazing is this white witch costume? If you've got two kiddos I vote for a white witch AND a Mr. Tumnus!  Narnia here we come!

Just amazingly wonderful Alice

Here's my little guy in his Halloween best. Ronan as Charlie Chaplin. If you want the moustache on for the long haul I suggest drawing it on. :-)
