This Zelda costume is brilliant and pretty easy to pull off. You'll need a long sleeve light brown shirt, brown belt, green tunic/dress or oversized t-shirt, brown boots, and a green stocking hat (or elf hat, if you can find one!). Sword and shield optional. ;)
Last year it was all about 'Where is Waldo?' This year, let's make it about Carmen. I loved 'Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?' as a kid... both the tv show and the computer game. You may not randomly have a red trench hanging in your closet, but I'm thinking you could improve by pulling together a red skirt and long sleeved collared shirt, belting it, and accessorizing with black boots, black gloves, and a red hat. Don't forget the mustard-colored scarf!
I'm reeeeeally digging this Sherlock Holmes costume idea. It's made up of a bunch of basics that shouldn't be too difficult to get your hands on--a brown dress, brown boots, a trench or riding cape, an English-looking hat, and accessories like a pipe and magnifying glass. Or you can put a more masculine spin on it with trousers, a man's dress shirt and vest, and a bow tie.
I had my heart set on being Robin Hood for a while last year. Belt a green dress, pull on brown boots, wear some leather jewelry, and top it all off with Robin's feathered hat.
This is a super cute idea if you and a friend wanna dress up together---Mario and Luigi are the best of pals! Brighten up a basic pair of bib-overalls with big yellow buttons, wear a red or green tee, and don't forget your M or L cap!
I think this would be particular fun because you could have an excuse to eat cookies (and
steal give out cookies) all night!
And lastly, dressing up as a childhood favorite is always a hit. And with a pair of blue jeans, white polo, yellow cardigan, and red chucks... you can't go wrong as Arthur!
