I still remember trying to coax my then 18 month-old into the carefully selected Halloween costume. Nothing. The best we could do was stick an apron on her over her diaper, put a wooden spoon in her hand and call her the Naked Chef. (It actually went over very well with the neighbors!)
That’s why I love this shop that makes a ton of Halloween costumes–for kids who aren’t necessarily ready to wear a head-to-toe costume.
The handmade Halloween costumes for kids at LA’s Seven Little Rabbits are beyond adorable. Each one is actually a cape, not a full costume, for low commitment but high fun. They’re all handmade from fleece and closing with velcro, so lovingly made with adorable details–like the shark fin, the dinosaur spikes or the wiggly octopus “tentacles” that dangle around your wiggly kid.
The price is pretty great too for something totally handmade to order–especially considering, if your kids are anything like mine, they will be playing dress-up with these costumes for years to come. Hey, we still have that apron. -Liz
