Steal the Scene with These Matching Mother and Daughter Costume Ideas

Posted on October 25 2013

 

Be it a Halloween party or any other costume party for whatever occasion, there's nothing cuter than matching mother and daughter costumes. But, keep in mind that the older your daughter gets, the less happy she might be about dressing up in matching costumes. So just a tip - take advantage of it while she's still young.

Unsure of where to begin? You can purchase matching costumes, but doesn't it sound more fun to have a DIY costume project with your daughter? If possible, try creating your own costumes. Not only will it serve as a bonding activity for the two of you, but you might save money, too.

Unsure of where to begin? Here are a few costume ideas to get you started:

Bo-Peep and her Sheep

Bopeep 

If you've seen Toy Story, then you probably have a good idea of how the costume is supposed to look like. For this costume, you'll probably do more purchasing than DIY. Look for a dress that fits the pattern - polka-dots or checkered, preferably in pink and white or other pastel colors. Don't forget a matching bonnet! You can also tie a ribbon around your shepherd's crook for a cuter look.

This costume combination is probably more appropriate for younger children, preferably infants or toddlers. You'll easily find a sheep costume in the toddler section of the department store. If not, then think of alternatives. After all, who would be able to tell the difference between a sheep and poodle costume?

Wilma and Pebbles Flintstone

Dress up as the hip and fashionable Wilma and Pebbles Flintstone straight from Bedrock! Again, this will warrant more purchase than DIY. Wilma's dress is a pretty easy find - any above-the-knee, asymmetrical white dress will work perfectly. You can add a bit more color by sewing on zebra print fabric on the top and bottom portions. Essential to the costume is Wilma's pearl necklace and red hair, so you might need a wig for this one. Some costume sets might come with a matching wig, too.

For Pebbles' costume, grab an old pink shirt and black shorts, cut the edges to come up with a jagged border, and sew on triangular pieces of black cloth on the shirt. Your daughter will also need an orange wig; remember that Pebbles uses a bone for her hair clip! Add in some freckles on the cheeks for a closer resemblance.

Queen of Hearts and Alice in Wonderland

Queen of Hearts

This costume combination is perfect for any age. The Queen of Hearts has a rather elaborate dress, so it would be better to go on a costume hunt instead of creating the costume yourself. Try to look for costumes that come in a set, but if it's not possible, make sure the dress you find resembles that of the Queen. Make sure the dress comes in a combination of red, white and black, and make sure there are hearts on the dress so that others will know who you are. But once they see you with your daughter, they'll make no mistake in identifying your costume. Don't worry, Alice's costume might be a lot easier to find.
