S/O Halloween costume thread--Costumes for 2 year old?

Trying to figure out what my DS will actually keep on his body I'm thinking unless it is pretty much like regular clothing he will just take it off! Anyone know where to get sweatsuits for toddlers?

Re: S/O Halloween costume thread--Costumes for 2 year old?

When dd1 was almost 2 (1month shy) she wanted nothing to do,with dressing up. I got her a yellow long sleeve tshirt and sewed on black stripes. She wore black pants. I put pipe cleaner attenae on hair pretties and put them in her hair (and wouldn't let her look in the mirror). So she dressed as a bee without ever realizing she was dressed up.

Dd2 always liked dressing up - she was minnie mouse at 2.

Ds was a fire fighter last year but wouldn't weat the hat. This year at 3 he wants to be batman. We'll just use face paint to paint on his mask (he likes face painting) and he'll wear all black and a cape if we're lucky.

If he'll wear a hood of a sweatshirt you could easy add ears to the hood and tack a tail on the back of pants and call him a puppy - he'd never know he was dressed up. A toddler at school pick up yesterday had on a tshirt that looked like a police mans shirt (it had buttons screen printed on it to look like a button up shirt with a badge on it and I think the bottom of the shirt had a belt with handcuffs in it or something like that). Something like that paired with dark pants would make a cute costume. I bet you could find a tshirt that looks cowboyish to wear with jeans for a cute look.

DS loves to dress up...for about 2 seconds. I like the "shirt costume" idea. I wanted to do a giraffe made from hoodie but can't find any hoodie sweatshirts for toddlers around here!

I made Ds's costume at 2. He was a cow. I made a hooded sweatshirt and sweat pants and added the spots and horns and tail.

I have seen sweats at Walmart. You can always get a beanie for the hat

DD3 wants to be Super Why this year so I plan to put her in a green sweatsuit with cape and mask. The mask might not work for long, but it's worth a shot and much more comfortable than most costumes, IMO.

Last year my son was a chicken. Took a white tshirt a few sizes too big and hot glued on white feather boas. It was hot so he just wore shorts you couldn't see under the shirt and (spray-painted) yellow boots. I made a headband with a little red thing on it (no clue what that part of a chicken is called?) but I wish I had used a beanie. He carried a little metal/tin bucket to look like chicken feed. Whole costume was probably $7 or less. He loves chickens and loved his costume!

This year he wants to be Toothless from "how to train a dragon." No clue how I'm going to make that one yet!!

From my iPhone, probably while BF'ing.
