Hattie’s Halloween Costume!



This year for Halloween, Miss Hattie Cat payed homage to her favorite food and went as Spaghetti & Meatballs. I DIY’ed this costume for Hattie myself, and I was thrilled to see how much she loved it! She was ALL about her costume, and was posing for pictures left and right. And I must say, she looks deliciously adorable!

I’ll be posting our entire family’s Halloween pics tomorrow in a big picTORIal, so make sure to check back.

Did anyone DIY your little one’s Halloween costume? And did any of you guess Hattie’s costume?

    My daughter dressed up as Audrey Hepburn. Her dress and headband was made by a friend of mine.

    So cute! I dressed my 6 week old up as a candy corn. I made his costume out of fleece without a pattern, I just used his swaddle sack for measurements. It came out really cute!


  • Heather Drudge

    I made my 3 month old into a Baby Ruth candy bar. Just cut out felt letters and applied it to a white sleep gown. It turned out great and I am not crafty at all!!

    I dressed my 9 year old up at Medusa. We just used a black dress, then spray painted her teased hair green and added a few snakes put in with rubber bands.

  • Jamie Freedman

    Adorable!! My two yr old was a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man that my mom & I made. I bought a white sweat suit and my mom sewed elastics inside to make the fat rolls, then we took a navy blue pillow case cut into a bib and sewed a white ribbon around the edges. Then added a red bow. For his hat we used his 5 yr old brother’s chef’s hat and sewed together navy ribbon and in white iron on letters “Stay Puft”. We put on a navy button on top with a red ribbon hanging from it. It was absolutely adorable! My oldest was a ghost buster but we bought his costume.

    My 10 year old son was standing beside me when I pulled this up and he immediately said “that baby is dressed up like Spaghetti!!!”. What a great and original costume idea. I might have to steal this one next year for one of my older kids. They would think it is a hoot.

  • desi

    Oh, she is just too adorable! What a cutie and what a mommy!

  • Jean Gilman

    I can’t get my “big” kids to dress up anymore BUT my hubby and I dressed up this year as part of a group. We were condiments. Ketchup, Mustard, Relish and A-1 Sauce. I DIY’d the relish and A-1. SO much fun. Green sweat suit, brown sweat suit, puffy paint on felt for the “labels” which then got sewn to the front of the sweat suits, and poster board strips wrapped around our heads for the “caps” of the bottles. For some added fun, I taped a bunch of green curling ribbon from the inside of the “cap” on the relish bottle!

    Yes! I made these Disney/Pixar Inspired Wall-E costumes for me and my son Nate! Wall-E has been Nate’s favorite since he was 2. His favorite color is even yellow because of him, and I think I have the entire movie memorized for watching it so much. So when it came down to picking costumes out this year, we knew it would be Wall-E! And Nate was so excited when I agreed to be Eve. I looked and looked online for a costume but none seemed to look worth the money or easy enough to get in and out of the car for trick or treating. So, off to Walmart we went and took a list of things to make our own costumes, and for under $25 a piece! For the Wall-E costume, we bought a yellow short sleeved shirt, a grey long sleeve shirt, black sweatpants, grey gloves and a grey cap. For the Eve costumes you will need a long sleeve black shirt, long sleeve or 3/4 sleeve white shirt, black leggings, black shorts, black gloves and a white cap. We also bought a variety of colored felt squares and craft glue to cut out and glue together for all of the Wall-E buttons, eyes, and for Eve’s eyes and green leaf button. Each costume was made for around $25 a peice! It was also featured on The Indie Tot blog yesterday!

    The sweetest bowl of Spag I’ve ever seen. And the winner for best pun ever is in my humble opinion Vicki A!! SpagHattie, hahaha.

    We don’t celebrate Halloween over here, but we do have a fancy dress holiday called Carnaval, it’s the period before Lent (February). Last year I DIY-ed two mummies, wrapped the eldest two in metres and metres of ripped white cotton sheets (bought them for a few cents in the charityshop). It looked great, especially with the ghastly white facial paint, complete with smokey coloured smears all over it. And they stood out of the crowd, because a lot of their schoolmates were dressed in nice but prefab costumes: 35 Superheroes, 18 girls dressed as Spanish Flamengo dancers, quite a few Ninja’s, and the occasional Sponge Bob.

    But I will keep this Spaghetti in mind for my youngest meatball next Carnaval! It looks do-able, consider a How To post please!

    My son asked to be the Tivo guy/logo. So my husband made it for him. He won second place for his age group (age 8) at our local neighborhood Halloween festival.

  • Chelsea Kidd

    Miss Hattie Cat looks ADORABLE! I would have loved this costume when I was little! “Pasketti” was my favorite food too when I was her age! I may have to remember and steal this DIY idea for a future child one day 😉 I hope the McDermotts had a happy and fun Halloween :)

    What a cute little outfit for a cute little girl. Tori, I love that there are still mom’s that enjoy making costumes. My daughter still makes her my 3 granddaughters costumes every year. My granddaughter Hannah was a gumball machine that dispensed 2 gumballs at a time this year. She was very popular at school with the children. HA. It was a super cute outfit. http://blessedsoul35.blogspot.com/
