Mom Dresses Twins Halloween Costumes Every Day in October
32-year-old Lauren Mancke always had a knack for making Halloween costumes since she was little and now that she is a mother of a boy and twin girls she couldn’t pass up the opportunity of dressing them up in get-ups she made herself before her children are old enough to choose their own costumes.
Mancke first had the idea when her son, Fox, was only 16 months old.
“I was a first-time mom and I’ve always loved Halloween and making costumes,” Mancke told ABC News. “I thought, ‘I want to make all these costumes but soon he’s going to be old enough to pick out his own costumes’. It was trying to get all of my craftiness and ideas out of the way,” she added.
Considering the all the wonderful memories she created with Fox because of the Halloween costume idea, she decided to do the same with her 8-month-old twin girls, Lera and Marigold.
“We decided, it makes us happy, it makes other people happy. We decided to do it and it has been really fun,” Mancke told the Inside Edition.
Mancke takes her Halloween costume inspirations from pop-culture. She created Halloween costumes such as “Indiana Jones” and “Back to the Future” for Fox and for the girls, Mancke had already dressed them up as characters from “Arrested Development, “Broad City”, Mary Tyler Moore Show, and many others.
The creative mom shared that she wants other mothers to know that making costumes for their children is easy and a fun activity to do. Mancke said that she makes the costumes in the morning and or at night and takes the girls pictures after nap so that they will be in a good mood.
Some of Mancke’s completed costumes are given away through online giveaways.
“By giving them away it will hopefully make someone else’s Halloween special as well,” Mancke said. “I also hope to show people how fun and simple DIY costumes can be to make.”
