It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and no, we aren’t talking about Christmas! It’s officially fall, and with the changing of the seasons, the air feels crisper and something wicked this way comes. For some of you, that means pumpkin-spiced lattes (love them or hate them, autumn would hardly be the same without PSLs), cinnamon sticks boiling on the stove, the crunching of leaves under your boots, and crackling bonfires. All these wonderful things are hallmark signs that the holidays are around the corner, but the best part of fall? It’s spooky season! Halloween is one of those special holidays that somehow only gets better as you get older. When you’re young, you look forward to one night in the year you pretty much get to eat all the free candy you want. There’s something so magical about the costumes, haunted houses, and Halloween decor, that the excitement is palpable and infectious. While trick-or-treating may just be for the kids, dressing up is for everyone, which means the fun doesn’t stop as you grow up. Halloween isn’t just about the candy; it’s a time to be silly, spooky, and—most of all—creative!
When you’re busy with young kids, the idea of DIY Halloween costumes may seem daunting. DIY makes you think of papier-mȃché or elaborate sewing projects, and unless you’re the crafting type, this may not be up your alley. On the other hand, buying a Halloween costume can be expensive and wasteful. Can’t decide what to do? Fear not! We’re here to change your mind on DIY. Don’t buy into the misconception that DIY costumes are only for the craftiest of parents; it can be super easy, especially if you mostly use what you already have on hand. The perfect base for any costume? KyteBABY. The rainbow variety of solid colors and the soft, snug fit of our clothing makes any costume possible and also guarantees that your little one will be as comfortable as can be while trick-or-treating. Can’t sew? Why, what else were hot glue guns invented for? Wanting to avoid permanently altering your Kyte, try adhesive felt or adhesive Velcro stickies and normal felt. Along with some simple items and accessories, you can build the perfect Halloween costume for your mini, using our onesies or toddler pajamas as your base. Here are some examples to get your creative juices flowing!

Now that you've seen so many creative costumes made with Kyte pieces, we hope you're feeling inspired to get started on your little's (and/or your own!) costume(s). If you love arts and crafts, Halloween is the perfect time to really let your skills shine, and if you aren't, that's okay, too. If these photos have proved anything, it's that you definitely don't need to be crafty to create a great costume. You just need a little creativity!
