Halloween Costumes for Moms
After spending days or weeks creating perfectly hand-crafted costumes for our children, we moms often end up going trick-or-treating in our yoga pants. If we're feeling particularly festive, we might add a witch hat to create a "costume".
This Halloween, spend a couple minutes on yourself, creating your own trick-or-treat costume. You can answer the door in your custom garb, or go around the neighborhood collecting your own pillowcase full of candy. Check out these Halloween Makeup Tips for more inspirations!
Step out of your comfort zone - strap on some leather and add a clip-on nose ring to be a rockstar like Brittany of Pretty Handy Girl.
When you give your child "that look", does it strike fear into their heart? Then try this DIY Medusa Costume from Morena's Corner.

This Halloween, it may be all about the kids... but it can be (at least a little bit) about you, too! Get inspired, and make yourself a costume this year - trick or treat for your own candy instead of stealing from the kiddos after they go to bed!
