Disney has played a huge role in dressing up and pretend play as long as I can remember. I mean, most girls I knew when I was younger went as something Disney at some point whether it be Cinderella or Ariel. Often times boys went as Simba or Peter Pan. Adults are even getting in on on the fun of dressing up as their favorite Disney characters now! The thing with Disney costumes is, if you buy them at the store they often are pretty expensive, and something about them lacks creativity in my opinion. You can usually make a lot of the Disney costumes at home for much less, often using stuff you already have round the house! Here are 20 DIY Costumes for Kids and Adults to spark a little of that creativity in you this Halloween!
