This week for the These Dads Are Doing It Right series I want to share some dads who are making awesome Halloween costumes. These dads are showing off their ingenuity with Halloween costumes for their kids. If there are any other dads that you think we should check out leave their name and info in the comment section below.
Greg Dietzenbach – Awesome Halloween Dracula Costume
Greg Dietzenbach loves this time of year. He really enjoyed making costumes for his kids. For his daughter he created a drive-in movie costume that projects clips from Dracula onto her face. Well done, Greg. That is a legit costume. The drive-in movie set up is complete with miniature cars and a concession stand which covers up the projector. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next.
Trevor Prentice – DIY Carrot Costume
Trevor wants to support his kids curiosity and imagination. One of the costumes he made was a carrot costume. Trevor feels that an important skill to teach your kids is creativity. One way he has found to support his kids in developing their design and theatre skills is to help make their role playing a bit more real with costumes. What better time to work on this than mid-October, in preparation for Halloween! Check out his website here.
Dad Makes Iconic Disney Movie Costume
This dad has been creating elaborate wheelchair costumes for his daughter who has a rare condition called schizencephaly. He has been doing it for years. She is so happy that her dad does this so she could have some Halloween fun. Recently he decided to go with the theme of Pixar’s movie Up. The girl’s brother, who has been her constant Halloween partner, dresses up as Russel to her Mr. Fredrikson while her wheelchair is a spectacular mobile house complete with balloons.
Jason Smith – Aliens Power Loader
Jason Smith and his daughter went to a Halloween Party dressed as the Power Loader from Aliens. He loves Halloween. Therefore he wanted to create a costume that he and his daughter could share. Jason says that she was amazingly content the whole night, and enjoyed looking at everybody else’s costumes! He built this robot suit in two nights and a day out of cardboard boxes and hot glue. His daughter was sitting comfortably in a Baby Bjorn with the roll cage protecting her.
