Costume accessories rule!

A witch hat is a great costume accessory

Looking back, the whole costume charade was fun and transforming for kids, but I think that simple costume accessories can be just as creative, more affordable and easily made at home.  

The top hat and cape ARE the costume for the magician.

  The best accessories are hats and capes.

medieval knight's cape, costume or accessory

  This medieval knight’s cape can be an accessory for a more detailed costume or it can work as the costume alone.  

Excalibur sword, accessories for knights and warriors

Fabric weapons are another great accessory; I know, I know, you try to discourage your child playing with such things, but in the end, a stick becomes an outlaws knife or a spoon is suddenly a cowboy’s gun. This fierce sword (as well as the crown and super hero cape and mask) are  projects in my book Sew Magical for Kids. The book includes easy sewing instructions and patterns for these accessories.  

King or Queen's cape, a beautiful costume accessory.

  This king or queen cape can be made in several different colors and lengths to alter the look. Don’t forget the crown!
