Perfectly Sloppy, Homemade, and Haunting Halloween Costumes!

By sharonbeesley |

My family took a trip to the NY Botanical Gardens on Monday to check out their Haunted Pumpkin Garden. It was amazing!  I was pleasantly surprised to see the employees wearing perfectly sloppy, homemade, and haunting Halloween costumes. In my ideal world, this is what every Halloween costume would look like. After the jump, check out these amazing costumes and get inspired. Which one is your favorite: The cat, the bear, the skeleton, the old lady or the DRAGON?

These creatures walked around the pumpkin patch, danced, and took pictures with the kids. My kids adored them! Enjoy the slide show!

Homemade Halloween Costumes

The Dragon

It reminded me the the creatures from the movie The Village. Doesn't it?

What are you going to be for Halloween this year? I think my entire family is going to be vampires! Awesome or Passe?

    I really like the bright blue paint on the dragon. I like the contrast of colors:) Very creative! What type of Vampire are you going to be? There are many different types:) Have fun! Boo!

    What a fun outing! I think I’ll take the kids this weekend and check it out. My boys are both going to be bats this Halloween, so, by extension, I don’t think vampires are passe at all ;) Be sure to post pics of the results!

    We were there on Saturday and I thought these costumes were great because they seemed European-folk tale inspired (although the skeleton with the wonderful papier mache newsprint bones seemed a touch Mexican to me, ie Day of the Dead ). The highlight for us was our sometimes shy children dancing with the characters especially the Troll. The Troll was rather fearsome and I was so proud of my 5 year old twins for dancing with him. Rather than “sloppy” or “handmade” I assumed these cotumes had been made by artists. I didn’t understand the old lady but my girls insist she was Mother Goose. It was a beautiful day out.
