20 Halloween Costume Ideas!

Today, I’m sharing my favorite Halloween costume ideas! Here’s our family Zoolander costume. Ha! I’ve been dreaming of dressing up Oscar as Derek Zoolander since I was pregnant, and I’ve finally made my dreams come true.

I decided to be Hansel and his dad is Mugatu.

For the most part, these costumes are a mix of things we bought and already owned. I did make my son’s outfit by using fabric paint and homemade stamp on a black cotton onesie. His wig is also partially a DIY, as it’s a fuzzy baby hat I added a headband to.
