One of the best things about having boy and girl “Twins” is the costumes. I mean, I love that they have a life long built in playmate, but the costumes at Halloween are seriously the cutest thing about having a boy girl pair. Our kids are 6 months apart (if you are visiting for the first time & you don’t know our family because google or pinterest brought you here and you want to catch up – check out our family here!) So the kids were Peter Pan and Wendy the Halloween that they were four years old. Peter Pan and Wendy Darling was pretty much the cutest thing of all the things in all the world. Peter Pan and Wendy Costumes need to be on your list if you want a themed boy and girl costume!

We are HUGE Disney fans in this house so we typically look for a fun Disney Costume that fits their personality and what is going on with them that year. Our kids were four this particular year. Four is such a bittersweet age. We were in the last year of preschool, totally done with diapers, done with naps, basically they were on the verge of being ‘big kids’. They were at that age where we were so excited to watch them grow into big people with all their big sophisticated ideas, but also kinda sad to see them just not be my bitty babies anymore.
Peter Pan costume was a a hand me down tunic and boot cover, a hat we bought at Disneyland that was well past it’s prime but we covered with felt, green leggings from his sister’s closet, and a dagger and pouch grandpa made (he got really into it). Super budget friendly!
Wendy’s costume was made by Grandma and it was so sweet. Grandma used an empire waist dress pattern she had saved from the days she was making dresses for me as a little girl. I bought fabric with a coupon at Joann’s in the perfect “Wendy” blues. We bought a satin fabric and I think if we had it to do again we might go with something less slippery. I’m sorry there is no tutorial, and sadly I don’t think this was super easy unless you are a skilled seamstress, but it was very budget friendly – I think less than $15 worth of materials.
We thought about Peter Pan and Tinkerbell but decided that it was maybe not the best fit. Our son is exactly like Peter Pan, full of mischief and a great heart. Our daughter wasn’t really Tinkerbell as far as the jealousy and sassiness, but she was dreamy and wistful and motherly like Wendy. We also liked that you often see Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, and Captain Hook – but you never really see the Darling children – so we thought it was fun and original to have Peter and Wendy.
If you are looking for a Wendy Darling Dress there are several choices on Amazon.
Peter Pan costumes are even more plentiful! Here are two choices. One is from Amazon and the other is from ShopDisney.
