  • Last October 8, we showed you amazing DIY Halloween costumes. It involved sewing, the use of glue guns, lots of tape, and some fantastic creative styling from the family closet.

    But we all have our days when scrambling for a costume means hitting the store or going online for something fast, quick and cute. Here are some adorable options for the mom who feels overwhelmed by the idea of sewing, cutting, and crafting (or perhaps totally forgot your child wants to go trick-or-treating).
