Steve Urkel Costume

Did I do that?? We had so much fun with this one and it’s really easy to pull together from things you have at home. Just make sure you have some retro glasses and suspenders and you’re good to go! It also might help if you’re extra clumsy that night. See all our Halloween costumes here.
