Jareth the Goblin King & Toby from The Labyrinth| Kid Halloween Costume Ideas; Charlie & Calvin | Oh Lovely Day

This year my sons dressed up as Jareth the Goblin King and Toby from the movie Labyrinth. They were a hit and I had a lot of people ask me how we came up with it, where I got the pieces for the costume, etc. so I thought I would share some more here on the blog.

Halloween is one of my favorite “holidays” and has become even more so since I had kids. My oldest is always game for fun ideas or comes up with great costume ideas himself. While there is nothing wrong with buying a superhero costume from a store, I love creating homemade and handmade creative costume ideas much more, and luckily Charlie is the same. I had so many people ask me: “How do you get him to dress up as what YOU want him to be?” The truth is: Charlie choose his costume this year himself. He wanted to be Jareth from Labyrinth because it is his favorite movie. I might have mentioned a while ago when we were watching it how fun it would be to do Labyrinth costumes for Halloween, but when the time came the idea was his own. It worked perfectly since baby brother Calvin was perfect Toby age to be his Jareth sidekick.

This was my favorite Halloween yet and will definitely be hard to top next year. I may not even try, and Charlie may decide next year he wants to be a superhero that we buy at Target. And that’s totally ok too, but this sure is fun while it lasts!

{Sources for costumes} Jareth: Leggings & boots / white shirt / Added collar and cuffs / wig (I looked everywhere for a good and cheap wig and this was the only one that fit the bill – it was perfect and even though technically an adult size it worked great on Charlie, who has an average sized kid head) / crystal ball / black gloves (which failed to make it into any of these photos) / black faux leather vest was made by friend Salvage Maria / Goblin King necklace was homemade and I can share a DIY for it later if anyone is interested / makeup (DIY with an eyebrow brush/pencil and a little bit of white halloween makeup | Toby: red and white pjs (so easy!)
