My kids absolutely LOVE to dress up. They used to make dress ups clothes for each other for Christmas gifts, made out of old scraps of fabric, cardboard and duct tape. They were actually pretty ingenious outfits, but they didn’t last long. One of the kids’ favorites was Bibleman. I once shelled out the big bucks and bought my two sons real Bibleman costumes one year. They weren’t cheap.
So even though the kids are a little older, they still adore dressing up. Right now, they are “into” Daniel Boone, cowboys and Indians, and the early 17th century colonial period. I’ll have to dig out some photos of them all dressed up, and post them here. Believe me, they are HILARIOUS! They’ll definitely get a hoot out of some of the costume wigs I’ve found. Oooooh yeah!
ROFL! Kind of looks like my husband’s old photos from the early 70s. Like, WOW, man!
Well anyway, LOL, we’ve graduated from the cardboard and duct tape now, I am happy to say. What we do now is be on the lookout for inexpensive halloween costumes, and use them for dress up all year ’round. Because we are Christians, we do not celebrate Halloween, but I often take advantage of sales on Halloween costumes to get great discounts on stuff that the kids use all the time.
