Ginger Spice Halloween Costume

What do you do with an adorable redheaded toddler on Halloween?

CamilleSpice Obviously.

I can’t even wait until Halloween to share this costume with you because I’m just so darn proud of it! I think Camille is too…

Spices

She’s singing, “Let it Go” but we’re working on “Wannabe.” Totally appropriate lyrics for a two year old. Fact: SPICE GIRLS ARE SPICEY.

AND SASSY.

If you’re here for a DIY tutorial. Sorry. I really don’t know how I pulled this off.

It involved a repurposed onesie. Wide ribbon. No sew, iron-on tape stuff. Liquid stitch glue. Etc…

The shoes are an almost too-small pair with foam glittery paper super glued to them and a few hole punches for the “laces” (which should be red, but I ran out of red ribbon).

And some specifically positioned tule making this version slightly less racy than Geri’s. Because, Camille’s “A REAL LAY-DAY.”

Kenton is going with the British theme too…

That, by the way, is my new favorite picture. Oh.My.

He’s her Knight in Shining Armor – ready to protect the young pop star from her throngs of fans.

He’s most excited about the sword. And we have to hide this costume until Halloween. He.Is.OBSESSED. I predict he’ll wear it 24/7 after Friday. You’ve been warned.

The pointed toe. The cowboy boots. I die.

Of course, the resident English Bulldog wanted in on this photo shoot depicting well-known figures from his country of origin.

So, Halloween will be entertaining around here this year. I can’t wait!

Anyone else doing a fun DIY costume for their little one?
