kid costumes : home alone

We’re back with our second set of costumes from favorite movies of our childhood! Home Alone is one of those movie we anticipated showing our boys knowing how much they would love it, and now that they’re older, we were right. It’s just as funny as we remember, and they agree! The Wet Bandits, Marv and Harry have provided a lot of laughs, so here’s our homage to them!

We love this idea because it’s all sourced from things kids already have in their closets, with a little theatrical makeup and accessorizing. Thick canvas coats like this one, with high top boots like these, topped with a fold-over beanie are great (and warm!) bases for this costume.

Then add little touches like feathers, an empty paint can-turned-candy-holder and of course Marv needs a little iron-burn and five o’ clock shadow courtesy of mama’s makeup!
