DIY Boo Costume

We have been told since our littlest was in diapers that she would make the perfect “Boo” for Halloween. We really love DIY costumes in our house so Boo has always been on our list.  I especially like making costumes that do not involve sewing.  Thrifted pieces are even better.

Shopping at thrift stores really keeps our spending down. I have found that when you thrift pieces for our costume it tends to be much better quality that the average costume.  In many cases we can wear the pieces we use throughout the next year in our wardrobe.

Boo is an easy costume that really works for any girl at any age.  A toddler to kindergartner is going to be the best likeness.  Also, while anyone can dress up as Boo, having big brown eyes and dark brown hair really starts the look off right.  Boo has straight bangs and two little high ponytails.

Costume pieces are really so easy for Boo.  Grab a bright pink over sized t-shirt.  A pair of lavender leggings complete her main outfit.  Boo does not wear shoes, but trick or treating in socks is seriously impractical.  We chose plain white tennis shoes, she will continue to wear them all season long! Boo wears classic ball pony tail holders in bright pink.  We found our top and leggings on a quick trip to Goodwill.  Shoes and hair accessories were on sale at Walmart! Our whole costume rang up at under $20 and that includes our new shoes and a pack of hair accessories!

Need one more accessory?  Make sure to bring Sully along so there is no question!

A couple years ago we posted about our Lilo costume.  Little Miss C was Lilo from Lilo and Stitch.  It was so popular the folks from Buzzfeed asked us if they could use it in a Disney costume round up!  It was such a simple costume, if you are looking for a Lilo costume you should check it out. Equally as simple are our Dora the Explorer no sew costume and our Honey Lemon costume! We like to keep our costumes simple and no sew if at all possible.  Boo is just as simple as the costumes we made in years past!

And if your heart is strong and you can handle the cuteness I have one more thing for  you. When our little Boo was only two years old we took her to meet Sully at the Disneyland Resort.  We accidentally dressed her in purple and pink, but the outfit was flipped. Even still, we loved how she just jumped to “Kitty”.  She really is Boo at heart!

Has your little one dressed up as Boo before? If not, it is the perfect last minute Halloween costume! Have a fun and safe Halloween friends!
