In today’s world, we often revere convenience above all else.
Here’s some of the reasons why we believe a DIY kids Halloween costume is the way to go –
Wear Them To Trick Or Treat, Then Rewear Them Again Later.
Typically, Halloween costumes are used once and then they get tossed, or are stored in a bin and never worn again. When you choose the building blocks for your kids’ Halloween costume, you get the opportunity to choose classic styles that can be reworn after the trick-or-treating fun comes to a close.
Easier To Choose Sensory Friendly Materials. Conventional Halloween costumes are generally made from scratchy, synthetic fabrics and typically aren’t a good match for kids with sensory sensitivities. Choose a base for your DIY kids Halloween costume that’s made of natural materials like cotton – which helps provide comfort and breathability.
Support local brands that manufacture their styles thoughtfully in the U.S.A.
Make The Costumes You Can’t Find In Stores.
If you buy a costume from the store, your options are limited. But if you DIY a kids Halloween costume, you have the chance to make whatever your child is dreaming of. Maybe they like a specific character in a book or have a unique idea? A DIY costume gives you the chance to create anything. Also, you can get your kids involved in the creative process!
Support Local Brands Instead Of Fast Fashion.
Mass marketed Halloween costumes are typically made overseas using low-quality fabrics. Creating a DIY kids Halloween costume gives you the chance to decide what elements you want to include and where they come from. Support local brands that manufacture their styles thoughtfully in the U.S.A. Also, this makes it easier to find quality styles that can become building blocks in your kids’ everyday wardrobe after the holiday.
