Thrifty Homemade Halloween Costume: 3

Day 3 of our Thrifty Halloween Costume series, and the costume of the day is...

Hannah Montana (Rock Stars are easy costumes!)

Belt, cute little black shrug, bright pink shirt: Good Will.

She's wearing the same black boots as Super Girl wore the year before (heh heh).

The wig came from Kmart, but mind you, it was NOT a "Hannah Montana" wig, which they had, for about $18. The wig I bought was more like $7, and it was just a plain old blonde wig with brown streaks in it.

A lot of people asked if she was Paris Hilton. But that's ok. I was going to try to construct a cardboard guitar and/or microphone, but I didn't. I just didn't get them done in time.

My thrifty homemade halloween costumes last year were Hansel and Gretel. I found a long costume gown at a children's consignment sale (could be used as a princess dress, ball gown, whatever) just a tad too big for my 2 yr old. I gathered the bottom all around to shorten it, turned an old white pillow sham with ruffle edges into an apron, and made a kerchief for her head, all with fabric I already had.
For her 5 yr old brother, I made brown liederhosen suspenders from an old pair I found at good will. Also got his knee socks at good will.

Let me tell you, they were ADORABLE!!! I think I will try Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf this year. Capes are easy to find (or make) and I already made a clip-on wolf tail for my son's Max suit last year for his "Where the Wild Things Are" party. I love storybook costumes for little ones!

I forgot to mention that my husband will be the woodcutter and I will probably dress as the grandmother. I saw your pirate costume post, Jeanine, and it reminded me! ;)

GREAT ideas Donna! I love the idea of storybook characters! I'll have to think about that for next year.
