This was actually what I wore this year on 'Wacky Wednesday' during Homecoming Spirit Week but it would also make an awesome Halloween costume! I found the cat sweatshirt and elastic waist jeans at Salvation Army then used hot glue and velco strips to add a bunch of stuffed cats that I found at Goodwill. The wig and glasses were on clearance at WalMart after Halloween last year. I purchased a plain white tote bag for $3 at Walmart then used a Sharpie to add the cat motif! Check 'Meowt'!
Elliot & ET
One of my FAVORITE costumes!! I wore a red hooded sweatshirt for the 'Elliot' portion of the costume. To create ET, I printed out his face onto cardstock then taped it to a ruler. His 'body' is just a white towel wrapped around a pillow. Everyone at school LOVED this costume!!
Pretty self-explanatory! Black jacket, black pants, a stove-pipe hat, and a beard!
Beard and hat purchased at the Halloween store!
Oh man, I had so much fun wearing this costume! I used my faculty graduation gown as my wizard robe and taped a printed out version of the Griffindor logo to the gown. The tie, glasses, and wand came in a kit at the Halloween store and I purchased the wig separately. Add a scar to your forehead and you're ready to make some magic!
This is another really easy costume! I paired a long skirt (purchased at Goodwill) with a ruffled white shirt (that I already owned) and added a homemade 'Votes for Women' sash! Details on how to make the sash can be found here.
Statue of Liberty
This one goes way back to my early years of teaching! I made this costume out of green fabric, some foam (for the headpiece), and a styrofoam cone for the torch!
I have a couple fun ideas for my costumes this year but you'll have to wait to find out what I'll be! Follow along on my daily adventures in teaching via Instagram!
