UFO Costume

Here’s the last costume in our Homemade Halloween series this year: a UFO! Don’t get scared if you see her spinning around your neighborhood on October 31. We want to say a huge thanks for everyone one who helped make these a possibility – especially my friend Fergi who styled everything! See all 30 of our 2014 costumes here.

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.

Sound of Music Costume

Today’s costume is so fun! The Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies – so I’d love to be Maria for Halloween. This costume is easy to pull together with some basic items. Finish with a guitar and straw bag filled with few of your favorite things!
