We tend to get some creative Halloween costume ideas around our house. This year The Artist decided to be Doctor Who. Surprisingly, this was much easier to pull off than I had expected.
Take a white dress shirt and black pants, add a thrifted tweed jacket, bow tie, crocheted fez and of course, a sonic screwdriver. (We didn't get around to the faux-suspenders out of wide, grosgrain ribbon.)
We tried some sock-bun curls. (There are tutorials all over Pinterest.) I think it's a learned art, but they didn't turn out too bad.

Mr. Adventure and Buddy teamed up with a Doofenshmirtz/Perry the Platypus combination.
Our Harry Potter robe is now in its fifth or sixth year of use! Little Miss Sunshine wore it this year.
Unpick the seams of the standard pillowcase and cut on the fold for two equal panels. Resew the side seam on each to form the sleeve. (The finished edge is the bottom of the sleeves.) Unpick part of the bottom seam on the king pillowcase for a neck opening. Unpick the side seams near the bottom for a sleeve-sized hole. Sew the raw edges of the sleeve and robe together being careful not to sew the opening closed. And there you have a Hogwarts-style robe. Add a house badge and a wand.
