If you can’t tell by now, I am ALL about EASY projects! I don’t want to call myself lazy, but like I’ve said before, time is a luxury in my house.
That means if I can do something quickly, the more I can get done! Let me be clear. That does not refer to cleaning my house, only fun projects! 😉
I thought I’d try to plan ahead for Halloween costumes this year so that I could gather all the needed supplies without having to rush around like a crazy person at the last minute. So in August I asked my son what he wanted to be for Halloween. I expected him to say something like, “I want to be a hippo or an alligator.”
He’s REALLY into animals.
Well, he busted out with, “I want to be a vampire!” I was so taken aback that I burst out laughing. He’s three, so I couldn’t imagine where he had seen a vampire, but they are like little sponges, so he obviously saw it somewhere!
After asking him about thirty more times and still getting the same answer, I decided to go ahead and plan his costume.
The first thing that he needed was a cape! This should be no surprise, but I found one at the Dollar Tree that was really cute! It was perfect for a kid, and it was only a dollar, so I bought it to have on hand if we didn’t find anything better. Of course my son wanted to wear it a million times before October.
In the meantime, I did some searching and found a few capes online that I thought were pretty cool and still very cheap. Unfortunately the cape that I bought is no longer available, but here are several Kids Vampire Capes from Amazon that I was looking at!
I paired his cape with clothes that he already owned. I put on a white longsleeve button down shirt, black corduroy pants, a black belt, and gray high top shoes.
I bought some white and black face paint for his face and slicked back his hair with hairspray and a brush!
I think it is hysterical, but also a classic Halloween costume! It was SO EASY and would work for any age!
EASY Kids Vampire Costume
My son is still excited to be a vampire, although he did say that he wanted to be a shark, Frankenstein, and Spiderman between August and now. (eye roll) I guess that’s to be expected.
Both kids have had a dress rehearsal in their costumes, and they’re ready for the real thing! If you haven’t seen my daughter’s costume this year, here is a little peek!
