  • dress him up like a lumber jack or hobo, or use spiderman PJ's stuff like that. How about a black and white cow?

  • A ninja outfit is pretty simple - wear black sweats with black shoes...make a black mask just to go over the nose and mouth (if they don't mind) and make a red belt to go over the sweats. You can even make a puff paint red dragon emblem on the sweater. Is a 2yr old a girl? She can be a princess - use one of her sunday dresses and spruce it up. Does she have a white dress? You can make or buy wings (some Dollar Trees carry some in her size) and she can be an angel or a fairy. =) Or how about a cowboy - wear a flannel long sleeve shirt with blue jeans and boots or plain black shoes, make a simple brown vest, and get a cowboy hat (Dollar Tree is awesome!). What about a clown - wear funky clothing (or dye them in funky colors), big shoes, and get a wig. Hope these suggestions get your creative juices flowing! Good luck and have fun! =)

  • my mom has a photo of me as a ghost. and my face wasn't covered up , it was a pillowcase ( i was 6months) it had an elastic around the face area (under the chin) and was over my head like a hood. then she used a little baby powder to make me look pale white.

  • Scarecrow outfits are pretty easy to make, just need some old clothes and hay to stuff inside.
