Get inspired for costume ideas with these three adorable DIY Halloween costumes for girls, including a pretty unicorn, a fancy fox, and a sweet bunny. All three of these costumes are great for girls of all ages… from little girls to teenagers.
I love to create. Sewing, crafting, writing, photographing — I always need to be making something.
Each year I get so busy with blogging projects and photographing weddings, that I never take enough time to sew or knit. And I miss it so much.
My sewing machine sits untouched, collecting dust and waiting for the one time of year I HAVE to pause everything and sew like a mad woman — Halloween!
Yes, it is true, I LOVE the excuse to design costumes, sew, and share DIY Halloween costumes for girls.
And again this year, I’ve been busy making my daughter and my nieces each a handmade Halloween costume. We actually just had our photoshoot for their new costumes last night. While I work on editing those new photos and writing a new blog post, I wanted to again share with you their Halloween costumes I made last year.
I had SO much fun making their costumes.
The girls started planning their costumes in the summer. Olivia knew all year that she wanted to be a unicorn. Sophia struggled for a while before deciding to be a bunny. And Julia couldn’t decide for weeks until finally choosing to be a “fancy” fox.
Suddenly, it was well into October and I realized I better get sewing. The girls came with me to the fabric store to choose their fabrics and help me design their looks.
Then I started to cut, sew, and glue…
DIY Unicorn Costume
When choosing ideas for DIY Halloween costumes for girls, a unicorn costume is bound to cross your mind. And it is such a fun girl’s costume!
For Olivia’s unicorn costume, we found this fabulous multicolored tulle that was perfect for her tutu. (The girls all wanted tutus or skirts in their costumes.)
The skirt is a basic no-sew knotted tutu. (I have been meaning to write a tutu tutorial for the last year, I will update soon with one.) I made it longer than I usually make the girls’ tutus because Olivia wanted a longer, more flowing look.
While I purchased leotards/bodysuits for the tops of Julia and Sophia’s costumes, Olivia begged me to sew her a top for her costume. [Read More…]
