Trick Or Treat! 18 Nakakabilib DIY Halloween Costumes Made By Pinoy ParentsIt's an occasion for kids, but mom and dad also pull the stops to give their children the best costumes!by Kitty Elicay .
While Halloween is not an official holiday in the Philippines, the country has all but embraced the tradition, with most establishments offering trick or treat events that kids can enjoy. But while the day is meant for the young ones (who look forward to candy!), it seems that it’s their parents who go all out for this celebration.
18 Halloween trick or treat costume ideas for kids
From thinking of the theme, creating the costume, and taking dozens of photos of the outfit that they painstakingly DIY’d, parents deserve all the applause. Just look at the Halloween costumes they’ve shown us over the years — some even celebrate Halloween as a family!
For 2019, we didn’t even need to ask parents to send in their children’s Halloween costumes — they just sent it straight to our SmartParenting.com.ph Parent Chat and Facebook page inboxes! Here are the best ones we’ve seen so far, and it looks like the kids were all raring to yell, “Trick or Treat!”ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW

For this Halloween trick or treat costume, mom Macy Dela Cruz bought half a meter of pink fabric and formed it into an apron-like dress. She painted the white circles on the fabric and used an old headband, shirt and leggings for the inner clothes.
