Can we all agree that this costume idea is “excellent“?! I love this family costume idea because it’s a fun throwback for a child of the ’80s like me, and it’s really easy to put together (since there’s no DIY component for you non-crafty folks.) Just some clothes gathering! I got this idea for a family costume when Lola put on my big dark rimmed glasses and we were both like, woah! Baby Garth! Lola’s look basically consists of a flannel shirt, a rock band T-shirt, ripped jeans, and of course, baby-sized glasses!
Since we have plenty of ripped jeans, black T-shirts, and sneaker options around the house, Todd only needed the Wayne wig and hat to complete his look. Being Cassandra, I needed a few more things I didn’t already have, but it was pretty easy to find a red halter dress, lace gloves, a long black wig, and big hoop earrings. Since Todd is a musician, finding a pretty guitar for the photo was only a few steps away, but I would take something like this trick-or-treating instead of a real guitar!
It was a bit of a struggle to convince Lola to keep her glasses on for the photos (of course she was happy to trot around in them earlier in the day and an hour after the photos!), but you get the idea. Overall this is a great costume for toddlers (to be Wayne or Garth more so) since they are wearing “normal” clothes and therefore comfortable for them if you have a picky toddler—and if you buy a few items like a flannel or T-shirt for them, they can always just wear them later in the fall as actual clothes so you get more than one use out of a costume item. Party on, dudes. xo. Laura
