The stylist who cuts my hair and his wife are insanely into Halloween. One of my favorite things about getting my hair cut in the fall, I’m not kidding, is hearing about their costume ideas. They are always over-the-top amazing, creative, and clever. I’m talking prosthetic noses, not just face paint.
More recently, he and his wife were met with the arrival of their first baby, and to no surprise, they’ve been working on costume ideas that include their new baby boy.
After tossing round some babywearing costume ideas at my last appointment, here are 7 that we found that made the cut for over-the-top amazing, creative, and clever.
Little Red Riding Hood & the Big Bad Wolf (via Popsugar) offers an adorable spin on a classic with your little one dressed as the wolf.
Game of Thrones “Hodor” Babywearing Costume (via mumsgrapevine.com) actually made me forget how disappointing the series finale was, and that's a win in itself!
Magician Baby Carrier Costume (via Baby Tula) seems like a straightforward concept, but the baby dressed as a bunny was what made this idea great. How cute!
E.T. The Extra Terrestrial Family Costume (via Popsugar) steals the show here with the clever baby & bicycle idea. E.T., phone home. All a parent needs is a red hoodie, basket, and handlebars. We also love the flower - nice touch for movie fans.
Oscar the Grouch (via The Exploring Family), with baby in a trashcan!
Creepy Spider Costume (via Crafty Morning), with so many spider styles to choose from, it's hard to go wrong.
The President & the Secret Service (via Bored Panda), one word: hysterical!
