  • Turn it into a learning experience. Ask your son to pick a country he would like to learn about and then find out the traditional dress from that area. To make it even more interesting, try a new recipe from that culture too.

  • That's hard. He could be from India, like Aladin, from Germany with the leather shorts (lederhosen), an eskimo, a gondola driver from Venice with the black striped shirt and hat, from Mexico with a sombrero...

  • Lots of cartoons he already watches have characters that aren't in America. Madagascar themed costumes would be cute. Mulan. Alladin. Have him name his favorite characters you might be surprised what works with that theme!

  • do you know what you are?

    example, my family is part scottish, and my nephew wore a kilt costume for halloween last year sort of in honor of his heritage.

    So I would stick with something you are sort of proud of.

    English: (red coats)
    French: napoleon
    Irish: Celtics
    Scottish: Kilts (like braveheart)
    Research some of the history with your son, and go from there.
