Halloween Costumes For The Art Historian’s Child
What were you for Halloween as a kid? When I think back to my costumes as a young child, I remember Halloween being such a fun time! Not only did the entire month of October consist of festive activities, the long await for trick-or-treating was always filled with begging for the perfect costume. I couldn’t wait to dress up as a beauty queen, a princess, or… Frida Kahlo?
Oh Happy Day just posted these Little Artist Costumes as a DIY for parents to pull together for their kids (even at the last minute). They put together three classic artist costumes: Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, and Vincent Van Gogh for less than $15 each. Granted, these outfits are the most adorable things I have ever seen, but I highly doubt someone in the single digits would choose to be Andy Warhol when they could be Batman! I don’t know about everyone else, but I wasn’t frequenting the art galleries back then. And honestly, I would kill my mother if she took photos of me with a unibrow, well, EVER.
These culturally-inspired costumes are timeless and clever, though. So if your child doesn’t protest, then you should totally go for it! I might even convince one of my friends to be Van Gogh!
