Sometimes celebrity parents come up with the most creative, crafty costumes for their little ones! Jealous of their tots’ style? You too can construct ensembles that will make your kids the talk of the neighborhood — just use these celeb families for inspiration!
Angela Bassett’s twins Slater and Bronwyn (2008)
While Slater’s giraffe costume is pretty straightforward and can likely be found at any local party store, Bronwyn’s flamingo allows you to get a little more creative. All your little one needs is black sneakers, pink tights, a pink tutu skirt, and a pink top. Strap on a fun flamingo animal hat or a themed hoodie, and you will be running a zoo in no time. But then again, you probably already were.
The Madden Family! Dressing up like The Addams Family is easier than you think. All your daughter needs to be Wednesday is a black dress, black tights, and a white collared shirt. Throw in some pigtails and she’s the spitting image of the spooky daughter. Richie dressed her son in all black, but for the true Pugsley Addams look, your little guy needs a black and white striped shirt, black shorts, and thigh-high black socks. If that’s not enough pizzazz for the kids, you can spray paint their hair black to match the film’s classic characters.
Jack Osbourne’s daughter Pearl (2013)
The Princess of Darkness! Dressing your kid up like Ozzy Osbourne (little Pearl’s grandfather) is one of the easiest costumes you can do. Simply get a black wig with long, straight hair and circular purple shades. Feel free to throw in some of your own accessories and a black onesie, and your little nugget will be ready to rock!
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka’s twins Harper and Gideon (2011)
Neverland never looked so easy! Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka always think of creative family costumes, but their first year together as a foursome was clearly their best. Daughter Harper went as Tinkerbell, which just required a plain onesie and some green fairy wings (plus an adorable grin), and son Gideon went as the cutest Mr. Smee ever. As Captain Hook’s trusty sidekick, he wore a striped shirt and glasses, which were drawn on his face in black marker. To improve upon Mr. Smee’s look, throw in a red beanie!
Tori Spelling’s Son Finn (2012)
Is your baby so cute you could eat him up? Try this easy and precious sushi costume! Start off by taking a white blanket and wrapping it around him, then tie a black sash around the middle to represent the seaweed. Glue or tape a cluster of Nerf balls (preferably orange) to a circular piece of construction paper and place it in the middle of the black sash to represent the fish roe. To complete the look throw on a Wasabi-green beanie and attach some chopsticks. Yum!
