One Jacket = Three QUICKIE Costumes!

We have been loving the H&M Halloween costumes around these parts….and I was thinking, ya know you really can get SO much more use out of them than just one outfit. I thought it would be fun to see how you could turn the Pirate Coat into several different costumes! I will tell you that this isn’t a fancy photo shoot. We did NOT spend much time on this—I wanted to see if I could just grab things we had around the house to transform the looks in 15 minutes or less. Let’s go!

COSTUME: H&M pirate coat, one crazy light up pumpkin sword from Walgreens, one hat and hook from the Halloween Party Store. I’d also add an eye patch!

{I went as a pirate wench one year and the hat and hook were leftovers from my costume…I did not look NEARLY as cool or cute, and looked more like a waitress from Long John Silver!!!!}

This next one is especially appropriate for my little Wolfgang….

COSTUME: Pirate coat, violin, hair in ponytail

{OK OK, so we cheated a bit here by using a real violin. You def wouldn’t want to trick or treat with that! I would use a toy violin/piano or make one out of cardboard. OR simply have them carry around a scroll of sheet music and a conductor’s wand. If your child is more cooperative, add a black ribbon around the pony tail!}

And finally….

COSTUME: Pirate coat, fedora, sparkly glove.

{I didn’t add sparkles to this glove, but you get the idea! I’d probably add longer pants….even jeans…and a microphone.}

There you have it! The possibilities are pretty endless….if you were crafty, you could make a pumpkin head/mask and go as the headless horseman….you could wear a top hat and carry a stuffed animal lion/tiger and go as a circus ring master….you could even use the same pirate hat, simply powder your kiddo’s hair white and go as George Washington or Paul Revere!

I swear I’m loving all of these ideas! Hmmm, I think I need to track down a pirate coat for ME! {get the H&M pirate coat here…)

      Aw thank you! We were literally racing around the house adding props….largely motivated by Wolfie saying, “How long is this gonna take??” hahah!

    What actually attracts me is that, the costume which matched him outstandingly. And I really love the picture of “LITTLE MICHAEL”.

    Love all these! So clever. So awesome that you had all those things on hand. All such simple changes but make such different characters!
