However, in spite of an endless variety of disguises available in the marketplace, nothing compares with a DIY project. Gather your girls around and let your talent shine. Decide on a pattern, colour and type of mask.
Hereís an original idea you can consider Ė grab about Ĺ yards of black fabric. To make the ears you can use felt fabric because itís stiff. Now letís move onto the sewing process; you can do it by hand or with a sewing machine. As for the pattern, print a model from the web. To make the masks stand out, adorn them with rhinestones and glitter. Girls will certainly adore the end result.
If you make them a scary skull mask youíll become the coolest parent on the planet. Start by looking on the web for a pattern. Print it on cardboard and make sure itís exactly what your kid wants. General colours for a skull mask are white and black; you can always mix things up to make the disguise as unique and as interesting as possible. Draw the scariest face and donít forget to make holes for the eye area. Use an elastic band to tie the mask, and thus your kid will have his hands free to play with their friends and terrify the neighbours.

Halloween is probably a childís favourite holiday. He can wear a cool costume for a whole night and will go trick-or-treating.

Every kid wants to be Spiderman and act like a superhero, especially at a Halloween or at any kind of masquerade party. This disguise is not just fun but also incredibly simple to craft.
