Featured in the Providence Journal: Roll up your sleeves for a unique, homemade costume

[ 0 ] October 9, 2011 |

Making costumes is easier than you think.

Rather than buying pre-made costumes, my family prefers making our own. My children are part of the creative process, often selecting characters from their favorite storybook or film.

Over the years, I have shared some of our simple costume creations on Kidoinfo showing how you do not have to be a master seamstress or spend a lot of time or money to put together a clever kids costume.

I want to thank writer, Lisa Vernon-Sparks for profiling my family’s passion for making our own costumes and photographer, Kris Craig for making the photo shoot a blast and sharing his family’s handmade costume tradition. Read the complete article here on the Providence Journal website. And watch Lisa talk more about Halloween costume ideas on The Rhode Show: Creative Halloween costume tips & ideas.
