So you can't figure out what your child should be for Halloween, eh? And you feel as though you're running out of options. Allow us to throw a simple solution your way -- keep it in the back of your mind for a last minute costume fix.
Create an ode to everyone's flying mammal with this simple bat costume. Not only is it easy peasy, it's super cute. To make this costume, you'll need:
• Black Leggings (or jogging pants)
• A long-sleeve plain black t-shirt (or sweatshirt)
• Two pieces of black felt rectangles, available at any craft store (about 50 cents each)
• Needle and thread
• Black puffy paint (optional)
To create your black wings, simply sew your felt onto the bottom of the sleeves, making sure you also sew the felt onto the shirt's sides. Cut the felt to create a wing-shape pattern on the edges and then add puffy paint to decorate the wings and give them more detail. Add the leggings, some face paint and there you go. Instant bat!
