Warm Halloween Costumes

As a child, I lived in rural Illinois. October there is cold. Sometimes it snows! The flimsy store-bought costumes leave everyone shivering. A warm costume is worth the effort.


Grab a set of black sweats and puffy fabric paint and let your imagination flow! Because the sweats are so dark, they'll be "invisible" in shadowy Halloween parties, so whatever you draw will make a bold impression.

It's easy to draw a skeleton. (Make a social statement by wearing a bikini over the top.) Use simple straight lines to turn yourself into a stick figure. Become the night sky with planets and stars.

If you have a mask, headband or facepaint, put them together. A pretty pink face can be a flower if you add a stem and leaves to the shirt. Lighten up a monster mask by drawing a tiny body under the neck.

The best part? You can peel the paint away the next morning and keep the sweats for everyday use.
