We just launched our 4moms Costume Spooktacular Costume Contest yesterday, and we have to say, our fans are incredibly talented. We received hundreds of entries, and while we can only have one winner, we wanted to give some props to these very clever homemade costumes.
Make sure to visit our Facebook page to enter throughout the week. We’re giving away a 4moms origami every day!

Isn’t he the cutest scuba diver you’ve ever seen? My mommy made my first Halloween costume! The air tank is made of 2-liter bottles spray painted black with neon green duck tape and a cord keeper to make it connect to my pacifier with duck tape to keep it intact! My flippers are made of felt they are slip ons. Hope you guys enjoy!

Let’s go diving under the sea! How many fish will play with me? There’s seaweed and coral, with colors so cool- This is way better than my kiddie pool! we made the flippers out of foam, the tank from a pop bottle with paint and tape then we found a tube at Home Depot which we glued from the bottle to the mouth piece. his mouth piece is an old pacifier glued into a plastic circle top from a toy dispense container and then that was taped! My son’s name is Crue and our entire family loves to go on cruises as we are obsessed with all things nautical, so this was right up our alley and we were the only diver at Mall of America!

Caught in a mouse trap!
Brittany P., La Crosse, KS
“I yam what I yam” So excited about mommy making my costume I forgot my pants! Using a black onesie as the base I used scrap felt/fabric around my mothers house to create the finishing touches and details like the hat scarf forearms and the buttons. Our Great Dane is going as his XL can of spinach. I also showed my “tattooing skills” with using a sharpie for the anchor tattoos.

“Mommmm…. You’re embarrassing me! None of the other kids have to wear a burlap bag for a costume!” I made this costume by buying some burlap, paint and stencils from the craft store. I used an Ergo carrier and pinned the burlap to the carrier to make it look like I was carrying a bag of peanuts. I pinned some burlap to the hood of a snow outfit and hot glued the peanuts on to make it look like an open bag of peanuts. Our daughter has always been small, and we call her peanut. At six months old on Halloween, she only weighed 14 lbs, so that’s how we came up with the weight. She’s our little peanut!

I WANNA TRICK OR TREAT ALL NIGHT & PARTY EVERY DAY. This costume took a lot of painful days & nights hand studding the entire thing…. The thought of it hurts my fingers… But the outcome was worth it all!
