Take a red bandana or a tutu, add an accessory or two (that you most likely already have at home) and build a cute costume for your little. Four local kiddos show you how it’s done.

Here she comes to save the day! Our girly superhero, 3-year-old Aysa, thwarts villains in style.

All aboard! No need for your train-loving kiddo to leave his (or her) favorite train whistle at home while trick or treating. Here 18-month-old Christopher makes it part of the costume.

What’s cuter than our tiny dancer, 23-month-old Luciana? Not much.

Shape your kid’s musical tastes early. And who can beat The Boss? Here’s 6-month-old Cruz as a baby Bruce Springsteen.

A classic costume for your little pardner.

Whip up some magic with this sweet costume. Some swirls of glitter face paint would be a nice touch, too. Who says girls get to have all the fun with wands? This locally made Tutu Cute fairy wand was a hit with all the kids at our shoot.
