Quick Tip: Double-Duty Costumes (Dressing Them For Halloween & The Holidays)

With a few accessories, you can transform your kids’ dressy clothes into costumes…

A velvet party dress from Target ($17.99; Cherokee) makes the perfect witch's costume with the addition of a hat ($3.99; Party City), green and black striped tights ($6.99; Party City) and a witch's broom ($4.99; Party City).

My version of a Daft Punk costume starts off with a Cherokee suit for boys (about $50.00 for both jacket and pants; Target), a chrome mask ($5.99; Party City) and a pair of transformer gloves ($6.99; Party City).
