Halloween is right around the corner and it had me reminiscing about some of the fun ways we dressed up last year. Not only did we do our family costume (which was a blast to create) but the girls dressed up several times before Halloween for different parties and events. These Wizard of Oz costumes has to be one of our all-time favorites. Hope you enjoy the post!

How the Costume Idea Came About

We were running late to a halloween party one night and I had not prepared at all so I searched the girls closets to see what I could find. I had a few items from years ago when we dressed up in Wizard of Oz pre kids and I am so glad I held on to it.

I found these adorable tutus from iloveplum and thought…. Hmmmm these colors could totally work. That is were the idea started, just from the tutus, then I started to search my house for the other items to pull it all together. I love how the tutus give the costumes a girly look while also paying tribute to the characters.

The Tin Man Costume

Wizard of Oz Tin man costume was inspired by the silver tutu. I spray painted a plastic funnel I had laying around, attached a piece of elastic and made the hat. We painted her face silver with a little accent and some lipstick. Cut out a paper heart and borrowed a toy ax from the neighbors and that was it.

The Cowardly Lion Costume

Cowardly Lion of the Wizard of Oz turned out so cute. The ears, tail and bowtie were part of a set we purchased online. Just added a little red bow to give it a feminine touch and added a little faceprint. She looked so great and had such a fun time with it.

The Scarecrow Costume

Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz was another super cute costume. We actually had the accessories from another year, but together with the green tutu this one turned out much better. Her face makeup was pretty simple and the entire outfit was comfortable and airy. She could have worn this for longer if needed.

Wizard of Oz Costumes wer a Hit

Well, there you have it! Little girls Wizard of Oz costumes. I think that our take on the Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion turned out pretty great. These were such fun costumes to put together…I’m happy to say, they were also the hit of the halloween party we attended. Thanks to our neighbor for the fun shoot with her Wicked Witch, she was scary good!
