We love and pin baby Halloween costumes all year. My first baby was only a couple days old on Halloween and I had been planning his giraffe costume for as long as I could do the math. I wanted to share my favorite ideas for other baby mamas looking to order something or start getting crafty.
1. Yoda. If your baby is very very young on his or her first Halloween, you may have already thought they look like Yoda, even if you don’t want to say it outloud. A Yoda hat like the one above can be the starting point for a Star Wars-themed costume. Wrap baby in a cream-colored blanket and tie with a belt to give him a Jedi robe. (photo from this Etsy shop.)
2. Fried egg – Use a plain, white sleeper or onesie and attach a piece of yellow felt cut into a circle for the yolk. Or, execute the egg look on a blanket and drape it over your baby when she’s sleeping in the car seat.
3. Just add silly blanket. I am in love with this array of carseat “costumes”. Aren’t they brilliant? Find them at this etsy shop. (If you have a crafty grandma within reach, I always encourage you to show them a photo and ask if they can make something like this.)
