Did you catch our Halloween looks on Xpose last night?
We looked at using clothes you may already have, to create great costumes. Everything we featured, could be worn again, as part of your child’s wardrobe, not just their dress up box. A throwback to when we were kids, but without a white sheet for ghost, or a black bag with arm hole cut outs as feature in all of my halloween photos circa 1990. We also focused on using safe and natured fabrics, after Claudia Winkleman launched a campaign against cheap polyester costumers. Her daughter was badly injured when her costume caught fire on halloween night, and she strongly believes it was because of the fabric of what she was wearing. You can see Claudia’s interview about that night here.
Lilah and Cole wore two looks each, and looked adorable. Check out these little superstars!
First up, Cole was a dinosaur. He wore this Kuku Kid hoodie. You can buy it here.
He also wore these trousers from H&M, which you can see here
And these boots, from the Studio range in H&M. You can see then here
Lilah was our version of Elsa, wearing an outfit I think could be worn again at Christmas, or to other parties.
Lilah’s dress is from Monsoon. You can buy it here.
Her crown is from Fable Heart, as is her cape.
The cape however is an exclusive preview to what Fable Heart are releasing soon. You can see their website here.
Her shoes were also from Monsoon. You can buy them here.
For his second look, Cole was a skeleton. Head to toe in H&M, we love this comfy and cotton tracksuit. Perfect for being cosy when he’s trick or treating on Halloween night. Lilah was a very stylish little witch. (She wore different shoes for the actual shots… these are her super cool ‘models own’ shoes! 🙂 )

Tights, Slugs and Snails. You can buy them here.

We can’t wait to hear what all our reader’s kids are wearing for Halloween. Will you be using ‘real’ clothes to create a costume?
