Here's a really simple childrens Halloween costume. My 2 1/2 year old son had a blast wearing it! He kept dropping his sword in his quest for candy.....

Step 1: Materials

You'll need some blue fabric, a small piece of white fabric, a Zorro style hat, some white lace material (about 1" to 1 /12" wide), some plastic and either aluminum tape or silver spary paint. A glue gun or ability to sew is also necessary.
wow, i had one of these for a play that i was in, these things rock!
Awwwwww... it's the littlest musketeer of all! Awesome idea. It's one of the few ways to make your kid look cool without involving some kind of horror theme. Hey, as a follow-up, maybe you could come up with an Altaiir costume from Assassin's Creed.
That would be wicked! But it's Altair, not Altaiir.
Meh, misspelling on my part. My bad.
A tabard is a very quick idea for a costume. It can be used for everything from Biblical to Ren Faire depending on your fabric's colour, material, and accessories/trim.
Wow great costume! It's so elegantly simple. I love it!
Thanks! He had a great time trick or treating- last year he didn't quite get it but this year he really got into it! He even said "thank you" to everyone that gave him candy and never got upset when another kid shoved him aside to get in front of him. :)
