Only just a few weeks before kids start to dress up, and get in the trick or treat mood. Although, my little girl is not a fan of candy, she loves the idea of trick or treating the neighboorhod with her little brother. The memories and traditions of trick or treating around the neighborhood is what we love the most of Halloween. Making costumes is another favorite part of Halloween and even better if you can dress up with regular clothes you can wear all year long. Adding accessories to make an inspired costume is what our AW15 guide is about but also about favorite fashion pieces and the best children’s shops.
Sailor Janes is among my favorite places to shop for our kids wardrobe. Every season, we look forward to Sailor Janes selections and sales too! Sailor Janes is a curated shop with amazing brands we love like Gray Label, Nununu and Beau Loves. Shop your favorite AW15 pieces at SailorJanes.com. I’m obsessing with Sailor Janes Gray Label’s salopettes; the quality of the fabric is amazing, very soft on the inside and great style on the outside. Sailor Janes Gray Label salopettes inspired me to do a little strong man costume, by adding some tattoo sleeves, mustache and make our own pretend play weights.
To make your own Strong Man Costume, you will need the cutest saloppettes from Sailor Janes, some adult tattoo sleeves (trimmed to fit our little guy by sewing them from the inside), (Target for $3) and fur mustache stickers I found at Michael’s.
To make the weights, you will need:
-4 half circle smooth styro foam balls
– 1 empty wrapping paper tube (I used Target’s dollar spot paper).
– Styrofoam Glue and Hot Glue
Glue two styrofam half circles to form a large ball. Let dry. Trace the size of the wrapping paper tube to the side of the Styrofoam ball. Cut out the circle using a xacto knife. Add hot glue to the end of the wrapping paper tube and insert to the Styrofoam ball. Repeat the same steps for the other side of the wrapping paper to form the weight.
Paint the Styrofoam and wrapping paper in black. Draw in some weight amounts numbers and let dry.
