Our favorite baby sling company, Wild Bird, recently held a giveaway contest in the spirit of Halloween. “We are having a Halloween costume contest with THREE WINNTERS!” they wrote on their Instagram page. They challenged their followers and customers to upload pictures of their costumes with the hashtag #WildBirdHalloween, and the results were absolutely adorable! I love baby slings, and they make a great costume accessory while keeping your baby close!
- Cat Lady
This mom wasn’t kitten around. If you’re a mama who loves your cats almost as much as you love your kids, this costume is for you. This Instagram mom combined creative crocheting and household items to make this awesome get-up! Grab an old bath robe, some curlers, and dress your little kitten up for the perfect cat lady costume!
2. Can of Corn
Hopefully this costume isn’t too corny for your liking! This mama channeled her inner love of Trader Joe’s to make this adorable costume. Can you spot her little kernel?
3. Hot Air Balloon
We LOVE this gorgeous hot air balloon costume. It looks simple enough to make, but looks so fun and elegant. Not to mention babies make the cutest little pilots!
4. Little Mama
This mom’s idea was right on target. How funny is this? This little girl dresses up as a mom using one of WildBird’s Mini slings. Carrying her baby doll in her sling, a Starbucks cup in one hand, and Target bags in the other, it becomes clear to any woman out there that this little one is dressed up as a mini mommy. Well done!
5. Koala and Bamboo Shoot
What better way to incorporate baby carrying into your costume than turning your infant into a little marsupial? This mom used a koala hat and a little greenery to create this beautiful ensemble. Stunning!
This just “popped” up on our Instagram feed and we can’t get over how precious it is!
7. Dunkin Donuts Munchkin
This is my absolute favorite! While this family didn’t participate in the contest, their costumes were too adorable to pass up. Here in New England we run on Dunkin Donuts. At their church’s Trunk or Treat event this brilliant mama and her husband turned their trunk into a mini replica of the popular donut shop, dressed up as employees, and dressed their daughter up as a donut. To top it all off (no coffee pun intended), they placed their new baby into a Munchkin box for the perfect outfit!
