Easy Supergirl Costume

In our home, we start talking in August about what my girls want to be for Halloween.  Peanut’s answer is usually very vague and ends up being a creating of her own beautiful mind – which I love.

This year however, she was very specific and sure from the first discussion.

“I want to be Supergirl”

We discussed and even tried on a store bought costume – but this is a girl after my own heart – she wanted to create her own.

We don’t believe in “making costumes” in our home.

We are “assemblers” of costumes – sometime they require crafting skills, but they are generally a pulling together of different pieces and parts to make a unique costume.

The headband is a belt from a Superman costume – and every Supergirl needs some gold eye shadow and glitter.

She already owned the t-shirt.

The tights and skirt were found at the costume shop and the cape was $8 at Joanne fabrics.

In the past we have always made our tutus – but this one fit our needs quite perfectly – so we went for it.

The bracelet is made from gold duct tape with a hairclip pinned on it.

The boots.

Ah, the boots –this is where you learn from my mistakes – that is coming tomorrow!

For now, we are jetting off for trick or treating!
