Homemade Costumes For Boys Tutorials & Patterns - DIY Halloween Costumes For Kids


Make a unique costume at home!

When I was browsing through homemade costumes for girls there were literary thousands of tutorials to be found online so I assumed tutorials for homemade costumes for boys would be in abundance but boy was I wrong. But still I managed to find (and am sharing) some really cool tutorials for you to make a costume at home.

I have founds some really awesome and simple to make superheroes, popular characters like Prince Charming, Peter Pan and Pirate, not to mention the supper popular Angry Birds (these are my current favourites as I am still a bit addicted to the game)

I have always had a home made costume when I was a kid (my mother made them) and I enjoy making them now as an adult!
