I know it’s a little early to be thinking about Halloween, but in my family, it’s on our brains all year long…..or at least it is on mine! (*mmm brains*). I love Halloween and all the creepiness that goes with it. I think it all stemmed from my 90’s childhood, with games like the Ouija board, Bloody Mary, Candy Man or movies like “The Craft” or “Hocus Pocus“, oh memories! Halloween, Scary movies, Paranormal Activity….all these things give me a rush of adrenaline thinking that they could be real and my husband thinks I’m silly for believing in ghosts but I’m obsessed and don’t care. Lol
If you’re anything like me and you love Halloween like I do, then you must know how much it bugs you to hear how your kids want to dress up like a princess, cheerleader, Barbie doll or even a character from a tv show they watch’? What is scary about that!? Obviously sometimes it’s just unavoidable and you cave and let them do whatever, but I am fortunate that when my girls were a little younger, they loved to please their mommy and if dressing scary made me happy, then they’d put up with it. Lol I just try to make them like “cute-scary” (if you know what I mean?). I let them pick whatever they want and then I turn it into something more Halloween appropriate like ‘cheerleader zombie’ or ‘ghost princess’ —->murdered at the alter, coming back to haunt the other women who slayed her on her wedding day because they fell in love with the groom first and if she can’t have him then she’ll haunt their lives for the rest of their existence! Muhahaha Lol (I know, I took it too far) Moving on…
Here are some school friendly (but still scary) Halloween costumes.
Classic Witch —–>What’s Needed:
- Pointed Hat
- Black, Green or Purple Dress/Clothing
- Witch Nose (optional)
The pointed witch hat and broomstick is a giveaway, but to make this costume more scary, adding a warty witch nose is one way to take this costume to the next level.
