I need ideas for a unique homemade halloween costume for ds. He'll be 13 months at halloween but he's already in 24mo clothes. Any good ideas? Also he HATES to wear hats so anything with a hat is out!

I haven't looked at the links but some off-the-top-of-my-head thoughts for hatless cuteness:
  • clown-big floppy collar and cuffs, fun printed jumpsuit, spray colors on his hair, face paint and a foam rubber nose (if he's up for it)
  • ghost-white sheet/robe wrapped around his shoulders, face painted white with big black eyes, hair sprayed white
  • birthday cake-painted cardboard cylinder hanging from his shoulders, with cardboard candles coming out of the top. Put him in pants to match the color of the cake, a shirt to match the candles, and paint his face/hair as a flame.

I made a mummy costume one year and my ds wouldn't wear a mask or hat either. I just cut muslin in strips and sewed it around an old sweat suit and then sewed a couple dozed plastic ants in various places.

I would just worry about a 13mo and packing peanuts.

I made my DS a super easy, super cute scarecrow costume when he was 2. I got old jeans and a flannel shirt from a thrift store, fabric glued raffia around the edges, and glued a couple patches trimmed with raffia here and there. He had a straw hat but the costume would've been fine without it. I got SO many compliments!

cookie jar-white shirt write "cookies" on it, glue cardboard cookies on it.

My friend did this too and it was sooo cute, but instead of raffia, she used yarn so it wouldn't be scratchy.
