Mommy and Me Halloween Costume – Mom and Son Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse
I love Halloweeen and hate tacky store bought costumes. I love taking clothes I already own and turning them into new characters. I will usually add some handmade DIY or store-bought accent pieces to really pull the look together. In the past, I have gone as Rosie the Riveter, a pin-up girl, and a housewife.
This year, it is my first Halloween with Zay. He will be 9 months old for Halloween and fully mobile so he’s the perfect age to do matching family costumes. Some of my ideas were Mike Wazowski and Boo from Monster’s Inc., Lilo and Stitch or Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Of course, when I went into the Disney store for Zay’s costume they had ALL THREE of these options in baby sizes. Well tickle me, pink, you can bet I was now faced with a dilemma. Which do I choose?!
Since you’ve seen the title and the featured / Pinterest image for this post, you probably already know that we chose Mickey and Minnie. It’s the one I’ve been most excited about for a couple of years now, even before I knew I was having a baby.
Zay’s portion is store bought specifically for halloween. We bought the onesie and little yellow slippers from The Disney Store. The beanie with ears came with the onesie, but I really didn’t like them because the beanie didn’t fit right for him. We wore it anyways, ha! I drew on a cute mousey nose with black eyeliner and if it gets cold on the actual night of Halloween, we can add a pair of black pants underneath the onesie to keep his legs warm.
My costume consists of items I already own and a few accent pieces bought specifically for the costume. I bought polka dot Minnie Mouse tights, Minnie Mouse fingerless gloves, and Mickey Mouse hair bows.
I wore a black short sleeve shirt and red shorts I already own and I put my hair in cotton candy bun pigtails on top of my head to simulate mouse ears. I LOVE making my costumes and getting to pair it with Zay is all the better.
This year, we will show off our costumes at his school’s trunk or treat and around our neighborhood for our first ever trick or treat night as a family. I’m loving our matching Halloween costumes and can’t wait to show them off to his teachers, classmates and our neighbors.
