Halloween costume poll

I'm having a hard time deciding what to do for my toddler. Help me decide!

1. Woody from Toy Story: Disney stores are sold out, so I'd have to hack one together. Toughest part will be Woody's yellow shirt. Most likely, I'd have to find a white shirt, dye it yellow, then draw the red pattern on with a Sharpie. Also, finding a cow-print vest.
2. Little punk: fairly easy, give him a mohawk, maybe spray paint it, get some boots (I think I saw some fairly in-expensive ones at H&M) and accessories. Might be cute since mom grew up in Doc Martens.
3. Diego: can use his own shirt, shorts, and shoes but would need to find a Rescue pack and vest. He knows and likes Diego, but not nearly as much as Toy Story.
4. DJ Lance Rock from Yo Gabba Gabba: he likes YGG more than Diego, but not as much as TS. I think they sell the costume as a set.

Anything else? He also loves Mickey Mouse, but one of his buddies is already planning to be Mickey.

  • I think target has disney costumes. He could be another character fro toy story if woddy isnt available. What about making him a ghost? Most little kids can wear a pillow case if you cut out arm holes and eyes

  • What does he want to do? Show him a picture of each if you can and let him decide.
    They all sound good!

  • He'd probably choose Woody because that's his favorite. LOL but it's also the hardest for me to do right now. (Our local Target stores are also out of TS costumes.)

  • Yeah, I dropped the ball. There were plenty of costumes not too long ago, but then Disney had their 25% off sale, and they practically flew off the racks. Thanks for reminding me about party stores, I haven't checked those.

  • I get all our costumes online and I can get a pretty cheap deal on them...I'd let him pick!

  • I say let him pick. Sounds like Toy story woodie.
