Beautiful Ballerina

Last Minute Halloween Costumes from the Scout Elves

Claus Couture Collection® Inspirational Outfit: Snowy Sugar-Plum Duo

Costume Idea for Kids: Dance recital costumes can sure come in handy when it comes to Halloween. If you have some lying around, or if you’re able to find one at a thrift store, pair it with a nutcracker toy to create a Sugar-Plum look like this Scout Elf.


Sugar-Plum Soldier

Last Minute Halloween Costumes from the Scout Elves

Claus Couture Collection® Inspirational Outfit: Sugar-Plum Soldier

Costume Idea for Kids: Creating a sugar-plum soldier look is easier than it seems thanks to a red t-shirt and a little crafting with construction paper. Use black round pieces of construction paper to create buttons, strips of yellow construction paper to connect them, and make a buckle out of black and yellow paper. Then, throw on a tall black hat and a pair of black pants to mimic a Sugar-Plum Soldier!


Winter Adventurer

Last Minute Halloween Costumes from the Scout Elves

Claus Couture Collection® Inspirational Outfit: Totally Tubular Snow Set

Costume Idea for Kids: For this costume, consider what sports or leisure equipment you might have to create a great costume. By bundling up and carrying a small snow tube, ski poles or a snowboard made of cardboard, your little one can instantly become a cold weather adventurer! This is the perfect costume for colder climates where kids will want to stay bundled up while trick-or-treating!


Bedtime Sleepyhead

Last Minute Halloween Costumes from the Scout Elves

Claus Couture Collection® Inspirational Outfit: Scout Elf Slumber Set

Costume Idea for Kids: The ultimate costume for those pressed for time, this sleepyhead look only requires some PJ’s and a teddy bear. Take this costume above and beyond by tousling your child's hair, resting an eye mask across their forehead and using eyeshadow to create dark circles under their eyes!


Spectacular Superhero

Last Minute Halloween Costumes from the Scout Elves

Claus Couture Collection® Inspirational Outfit: Scout Elf Superhero Girl

Costume Idea for Kids: A sheet, a play shield and a superhero logo crafted out of construction paper is all you need to transform your regular little ones into spectacular superheroes! Kids could try to emulate a superhero they love from comic books, or become their own made-up superhero complete with a sensational name they make up themselves.
