Halloween is this weekend so we’re taking the opportunity to take a look back at some of the team costumes we’ve created over the years. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we? Here are a few fun and festive costume ideas for a group of friends, team, or family.
We had so much fun dressing up as the four seasons last year. This costume really lets each person in the group show their personal creativity. Each of our team members created their seasonal costume with mostly supplies they already had at home, so it is also a great cost effective option. Lisa used a decorative centerpiece from her home to carry as an accessory and Caitlin attached snowflake Christmas ornaments to her outfit and hair clips for a frosty touch. Now that it’s a year later, it’s safe to tell you a secret about this photo; we were working together to hide Crystal’s baby bump!
Two years ago, Crystal was Cruella di Vil, from the Disney movie 101 Dalmatians, and the rest of the team dressed up as playful pups. (We promise she’s not actually scary like Cruella!) This costume idea is great because you can have endless people join in to dress up as Dalmatian puppies, the more the merrier!
In 2017, we dressed up as the various characters from Wizard of Oz. We had Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Wicked Witch, the Wizard himself and even the tiniest member of our group, the Cowardly Lion. This theme was great for the range of ages we had that year!
Turning to another Disney classic for inspiration, three years ago the team dressed up as characters from Alice in Wonderland. As we participated in the Willow Glen’s Trick or Treat Down the Ave that year, our costumes were a HIT! We even had 2 kids ask Caitlin if she was “the Alice in Wonderland from Disneyland”!
And finally, our last costume to share from years past are the super hero costumes! A special touch we all had this year was our from scratch ‘pow’ comic book headbands. These were a great way to help tie all our costumes together. Currently wishing we had super powers, because if we did, we would definitely use them to completely transform an environment, creating lots of happy party-goers.
