For these Little Twins Every Day of October is Halloween
If you really love something, let it loose. This exactly what 32-year-old Lauren Mancke did with her passion for making Halloween costumes. Since she was a little girl she loved it, and when she became the mother of a boy and twin girls—she couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to dress them up in various little get-ups. There wasn’t a big window to do this, soon her children would be old enough to choose their own costumes and might put up a fight.
The idea of making little pop-culture getups for her kids first came to Mancke when her son, Fox, was 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 all the wonderful memories she created with Fox, 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 draws Halloween costume inspirations from pop-culture. She created Halloween costumes taken from Indiana Jones and Back to the Future for her son, Fox, and for the girls, Mancke turned to me recent features such as Arrested Development, Broad City, Mary Tyler Moore Show, and many others.
The creative mom said she wants other mothers to know that making costumes for their children is an easy and fun activity.She also shared that she makes the costumes either in the morning 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 online: “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.”
