Dress Up: Book Character Parade

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I wanted to share with you a really easy Book Character Costume.

My children went as:

  • Thing 1
  • Thing 2
  • The Little Mermaid

Thing 1 and Thing 2 costumes were super easy, I went to spotlight and found these bright blue wigs.  Then I had to find a red outfit that matched, the closest I could get was jeans, long sleeve black shirt (as it was middle of winter) and the red polo shirt over the top (their school sports shirt).  I then made up the signs which I sticky taped onto their tops. 

The Little Mermaid outfit I can’t take credit for, DD#2 received it for Christmas a few years back, I did however have some orange hairspray in the bathroom cupboard so I sprayed her hair to be the same as Ariel.
