Halloween Costume Ideas for Little Sisters
I have two young daughters, ages four and one, and there has been a lot of talk about what they will be for Halloween. My mother never had daughters, and she seems to outdo herself when it comes to cute Halloween costumes for our girls. She is especially into feminine costume ideas for sisters.
5 and 3 Year Old Sisters
Little Bo Peep and her Sheep Costume. This is what our daughters wanted to be. My mom hand made the Little Bo Peep costume and the sheep. Little Bow Peep, has an elaborate dress, with bloomers and something that makes her dress stick out, and a shepherds hook. The sheep, is a body piece that is fuzzy and a sheep hat. My younger daughter was happy to be the sheep until she saw the Little Bo Peep dress. Then she wanted a dress!
Sisters as Little Bow Peep and her Sheep
Cinderella and Gus
If your young daughter enjoys dressing up l like a princess, you could get the older one a Cinderella costume and dress the younger one up as Gus. We thought this would actually be better for an older sister and younger brother. And if the younger one was more interested in being scary, he could go as the cat, Lucifer.
My brother and I were devils one year. We had great costumes and devils forks. I thought it would be cute for girls as well, but my mom disagreed.
Princesses or Witches—Dorthy and the Wicked Witch of the West
Our little girls love to dress up as princesses. We thought about letting each one be Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, or Jasmine. I think they would have both enjoyed this and probably worn the costumes a bunch after Halloween.
Princesses are cute, but I really like witches. I think it would be fun to dress one as the good witch and the other as the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz!
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum Costume
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. The good thing about Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum Costumes is that it's hard to tell them apart and neither is likely to complain that they want to be the other:) My wife and her sister went as the pair from Alice in Wonderland when they were kids, although they pretty much looked like clowns.
