Book Character Halloween Costume: If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

Book Halloween CostumesCarrie Chapman3 Comments

I mentioned last week that my mom doesn't like Halloween and costumes, which is true. But to be fair, you should know that I was involved in theatre all through high school and she was a reluctant "drama mom" who made many a full-scale costume for productions. That's love, folks. 

Today's costume was simple to put together. The mouse from If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is only wearing overalls. Since we took these pictures back in August, Georgia is only wearing overalls and a talk top, but you could easily throw a brown thermal under those overalls and be ready for late October. 

I made that cookie pillow ($3 of fabric) but it could have easily been a super cute trick or treat bag! Or you could throw it on the sibling like we did here and have her go as the cookie :)
