DIY Lilo Costume


DIY Costumes are the best!  We love to use thrifted pieces and have also made our own patterns to make our own costumes.  Our favorite kind of costumes are Disney inspired but we also make sure to showcase other types of costumes as well.  When we are done with our dress up or trick or treating you can often find our costume pieces in our vintage and costume etsy store – I hope you will check it out!  We prefer costumes that are respectful and modest, but still lots of fun!  No flirty skirts or making fun of people here – just fun dress up. Please enjoy looking through our posts for inspiration for your next dress up party, we include detailed information when we can and also links on where you can buy certain items if you want to keep your costume building experience simple!
