Pirate Family Costumes
Pirate costumes are easy and fun to make, and you can customize them so that every member of the family is unique. The key to your pirate family’s style is the use of various shades and patterns of brown in different combinations.
For example, one of the pirates might wear a brown vest, another a brown jacket, and another a tunic. One member can dress as a pirate captain, with a long overcoat in dark red or black; a second mate can dress in purple or gray; and the rest of the crew can wear browns and white.
All the pirates can wear various styles of hats, from tricornes to beanies. Use belts and bandanas to accessorize outfits, and don’t forget gold earrings!
Shopping for Halloween costumes for you and your kids can be a lot of fun. It’s even better when you can get everyone in on the act. One way to do this is to dress up as a family:
One idea is to go as characters from a favorite book or movie. For example, you and your spouse could dress up as Han Solo and Princess Leia, while your kids go as Luke Skywalker and Yoda. Another option is to dress up as another group of characters, such as Peter Pan and the Lost Boys (or Lost Girls). You could also go as characters from The Wizard of Oz. Here are some other ideas:
Halloween costumes should be fun, not scary, so if you have little ones, skip the blood and gore. And remember that you’ll need to be able to see out of your mask so make sure it fits properly!
Is there a more magical creature than Tinker Bell? The feisty fairy is the heart and soul of Neverland and we love her sass. Tinker Bell’s story began in J.M. Barrie’s 1904 play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up and was later adapted to the famous 1953 Disney movie.

“Tinkerbell! Tinkerbell! Let her come in. I do believe in fairies. I do. I do.” This is probably one of the most popular quotes from children’s literature and it’s no surprise that Tinkerbell is one of the most popular costumes around.
If you’re looking to dress up as the beloved Disney character, there are a variety of choices you can make. For starters, you can go the DIY route and make your own costume or you can go with a ready-made one. Which choice you make depends largely on how much time and money you want to spend as well as how good of an eye for detail you have.
Tinkerbell is a magical fairy who appeared in the story of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling. Featured in Disney’s Peter Pan, Tinkerbell is an iconic character for an unforgettable Halloween.
Green bodysuit (like unitard)
Green glitter body paint (or green glitter glue)
Green fairy wings
Green hair spray (optional)
Pixie dust glitter (optional)
Use green body paint to paint your child’s face and arms. You can also use green glitter glue if you prefer. Add pixie dust glitter to your child’s hair and make-up for extra sparkle.
Tinkerbell costume patterns are a great way to create your own Tinkerbell costume. You can make a Tinkerbell costume out of many different fabrics and materials, but it is best to use gauze, tulle, organza, or chiffon for the skirt.
The most important part of a Tinkerbell costume is the wings. You can buy them online or at party stores. If you want to be creative, you can also buy fairy lights and decorate your wings with them. It’s best to use battery powered lights so that you don’t have to worry about wires getting tangled up in the wings.
How do I make my own Tinkerbell costume?
You can find the pattern for Tinkerbell costumes in just about any sewing book or on the internet. The patterns usually come with instructions on how to sew each piece of the costume together. You can also find instructions on how to make your own wings by looking at photos of other fairies’ fairy wings on the web.
