Halloween is around the corner and as much as we may be dreading the friend or school’s invitation to a Dress Up Day, we are all secretly excited about dressing up our lil’ munchkins in costumes that we never had as kids.
While there are plenty of costume rental stores in Kuala Lumpur and other big cities in Malaysia, the cost of these rentals are not exactly cheap! So, in the spirit of recycling and reusing, as well as believing that parents should get crafty and creative themselves, here’s a couple of DIY costume ideas that only require you doing as much as paying a visit to your local hypermarket!
1. Mario (from Super Mario Brothers)
Now, you may have much higher appreciation for Mario than your children but they will eventually realise how cool they looked at the party
You can’t go wrong going as an understated skeleton and this costume is particularly easy to make! Grab your child’s black trousers and long-sleeved shirt and get yourself a white duct tape. The true test here is your drawing and cutting skills. As you can see below you could keep it simple or elaborate the shape of the bones – you decide!
If you have the spare time, set yourself this challenge! All you need are your child’s white long sleeved shirt and trouser, a white sheet (like an old bed sheet), a pair of scissors and a teabag.
4. Fairy Princess
This costume is for the girly ones. All you need are your child’s most princess-like dress, skirt or tutu, a large cardboard, a ribbon, strings and some fake flowers.

We hope these are useful - good luck mums and dads!
