thing 1 thing 2 wig

Is there a reason for this post other than to show off how ridiculously cute my girls looked on Halloween?! Absolutely NOT! :) {Okay, and it shows off Missy’s amazing photography skills}.thing 1 thing 2 wig

Alright, I suppose I could make some reason for this post. How about the wigs? I used a blue feather boa and hot glued it to their little beanie hats. Easy.

I know they are mine,…so of course I think they are adorable!! But hopefully this made you smile too! :)

      I had to click to see how you could repurpose a feather boa, and seeing this picture was such a shock! Those are the cutest thing 1's and thing 2's I've ever seen! And their expressions are hilarious!

      Hi Shelley, those are simply the most adorable costumes ever! I'm currently working on a post for my blog,, featuring the best homemade costume ideas for children. I'm featuring an amazing hot-air-balloon costume made by a friend, and a really sweet cotton candy costume as well. I would love to spotlight your Thing #1 & Thing #2 creations and was hoping to have your permission (and Missy's too) to use the photo, which I'd like to accompany with a link to your original post, so my readers would end up on your site. I noticed above that you gave a tip for how you made the hats, and would love to share your ideas or sources for the shirts (onesies?) and leggies too. Not only is your project phenomenal, but I know that my readers would enjoy the rest of your blog as well. I thank you, in advance, for your consideration! Warmest wishes, Jenn

      Hi Shelly! I LOVE your twins costumes and I am currently trying to copy you. :) I have my wigs complete and ordered the onesies. How did you do their pants/leggings? Did you buy them or sew them? And is that material a red and white print or did you sew seperate strips together? (P.S. everyone I show your picture to has the same reaction, "AWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!")

        Oh I am so glad! You HAVE HAVE to send me a picture after Halloween. Promise?! I'm counting on it. ;) -THe leggings were actually just women's knee highs that I bought from walmart. I just cut of the feet. I am sure you could find white and red striped knee-highs online, or even better you might be able to find pre-made red and white leggings on etsy? Hope that helps. :)

          Something like this:


          or this:

          would work? Check walmart too. They might have the same fuzzy ones they did last year (although they were a PAIN because they SHED).

      Hello! I came across your website by a google search for twin costume ideas. I am trying to convince my son (5) to be the cat in the hat and allow my 18 month old twins (boy girl) to be thing 1 and thing 2. Any chance you have these costumes for sale? OR would be willing to make and sell the wigs? You are so created. I am a party planning freak too, but not good with throwing costumes together. When my son turned 5 he had an insane pirate party and my twins' first birthday was a mickey and minnie mouse these. It was amazing. Everyone said, "I felt like I was in disney!" Lf you send me your email address, I will send pictures if you want to use for ideas on your website.

      Your girls are adorable...this is definately the beat twin costume I've seen. I was wondering what material were the leg warmers...those look warm for our Chicago Halloween :) thanks again for the idea!

        They were just women's socks I found at Walmart. I just cut the feet off and made them into leg warmers. :)
