Rainbow Brite Costume

One afternoon I decided to share some of my childhood with my Little Miss.  We sat down together and turned on You Tube.  I decided to show her Rainbow Brite.  She fell in love, and had to watch every episode.
Later when I asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween and she said Rainbow Brite.  And the search began for a Rainbow Brite costume.
Here is how I did it.

Royal Blue fabric
1/4 yard Rainbow fabric
White t shirt
Rainbow leg warmers 2 pair
yellow felt

I started by making a circle skirt and using a wide elastic from Joann's for the waist band.

I used a basic peasant shirt pattern. Instead of peasant sleeves I made a stiff flutter sleeve.

For the belt I used red for the sides and a rainbow fabric for the center.  Then added red suspender style straps.  Add a big star and you are ready to go.

Add your leg warmers to her arms and legs and she is ready to trick or treat!

{No Sew} Snake Charmer Costume, How to

Pin It
My second son defiantly beats to his own drum. For Halloween this year he wanted to be the "devil". I was not totally comfy with his choice so I sent him back to the "thinking board". After much deliberation I finally convinced him to be a Snake Charmer.  He has a small collection of stuffed snakes he got from the zoo and he enjoys teasing his sister with them.  This is by far the easiest costume.  It only took and hour to put together! Here how I did it.
Tunic shirt
baggy pants
scarf with tassels ( Go buy yourself a new scarf and let your sone use it for the day.  Its a win win!
(2) $1 store baskets
$1 store whistle or flute
1.5 yards cheap cotton fabric

Most of his costume is pretty self explanatory   For the snake basket I glues the 2 baskets together. I cut the bottom of the top basket off so the snake could go inside.I also glued a piece of ribbon around the basket seams and the top of the basket.

 I use a 1 foot piece of fishing line and tied one end to the whistle and the other to the snake.  When they play and move the flute the snake will move too.

For the Turban I watched a few you tube videos to learn how to wrap and tie it.

So that's it. Super simple.  If you ever need a quick costume you can't go wrong with this one. Happy Halloween!!
