Unique Toddler Costume Ideas That Will Make The Other Kids (Parents) Envious
Since I was asked, why not. I’m not writing about Dora, Disney Princess, Power Ranger or stuff like that - those aren’t very exciting. I’m throwing out ideas that will make a statement to the world! Or at least to the neighbors…
Alf- Toddlers and Alf are about the same size. How cool would it be to teach a kid to say “Yo, Willie!” or “HA!” in Alf’s signature alien Melmakian voice. They can even get into the role while “Trick or Treating” by asking for dryer lint and tossing in the family cat instead of Chocolate and Gum.
Tattoo from Fantasy Island – I think it’s funny when little kids are dressed as adults. But if they’re dressed like Tattoo, wow! That would be really something. People will probably mistake them for the real guy. Even better, have Dad (or Mom) dress like Mr. Rourke and instead of saying “Trick or Treat” announce, “Smiles Everyone, Smiles!”.
Chewbacca – If I have a boy on kid #2. He’s going to be Chewbacca and I’ll teach him how to growl after ringing the doorbell real loud.
Gollum from Lord of the Rings – And when people toss candy into the kids’ bag, teach them to look in it immediately and say “My Precious” in a sinister voice.
1970’s Jumpsuit Elvis – With the porkchop sideburns, sunglasses and the cape. And when people give candy teach them the shotgun finger routine and have them say something like “Thank Ya’ very much”, or “I like your Cadillac”. (This is my future son’s 2nd Halloween Costume)
If anybody else has any ideas, jot them on your own blog or leave a comment.
