Last year my oldest was a baby being held by it's "mummy"! It was so great and she got so many compliments and even won a contest! If this sounds confusing,write me and I'll try to explain better..lol.. 1) Get a sturdy piece of cardboard.. use that as the mummy's back... we used an old baby carrier to attach it to my daughter. 2) get a empty roll of toilet paper..this will be the mummy's neck.. attach to the mummy's back 3) an old milk jug upside down on top of the roll of tp is going to be the mummy's head.. the mummy's nose is the handle.. 4) get an old robe... stuff the arms with newspaper or paper towels.. wrap the mummy's head with whatever you'd like... if it is gonna rain something that will w/stand! We just used toilet paper! 5) Use a baby bonnet and have your son wear it.... put a pacifier around his neck... get an old baby sleeper and stuff that we safety pinned the sleeper to the baby carrier this will be your son's "body"... in the end it looks as if there is a mummy carrying your son... It sounds really complicated, but it is actually really easy! I have a picture of my daughter in it and I can send it to you if you would like...

I made my son a skeleton costume. I bought a black long-sleeve t-shirt and sweatpants at Walmart for $3.50 each, then I bought foam sheets the size of a piece of paper and cut out the bones. I did a quick stitch in each side of the bone so I could potentially use the outfit again without ruining it. However, if your son is old enough to not rip off the bones, you can use tacky glue to adhere them to the shirt and pants. Another idea would be to use fabric paint in white or glow-in-the dark, which will be fun for him to do (depending on his age). The whole thing is less than $10, and everyone commented on how great it looked!!

My kids are Mario and Luigi this year. Easy and cheap! Painted on mustache, red/green long sleeved tops, denim overalls (the little one is using his snow pants since we couldn't find denim in his size), red/green ball caps, and I made little "M" and "L" signs for the hats. They've been wearing them all month.
