Come on. You didn’t think I’d pass up the opportunity to try a little DIY mommy and me costume, did ya?! Since Henry is my little sidekick I thought we’d get our imaginary wings out and dress as Birds of a Feather!

Psst – before you check out this costume, make sure you take a peek at our other family costumes too!

How to Adjust a Mommy and Me Costume

The photos here are just of me and Henry, but you could easily adjust this mommy and me costume idea to include the whole family! Be sure to keep things simple and safe for anything you’re adding to the baby’s costume. Then, older family members could have more involved costume pieces like wings, beaks, and more.

You could even do this one with your BFF or significant other (if, that is, he’s willing to put a feather in his cap for the evening). It’s super simple and super affordable, and you can probably just customize some things that are already in your closet!

  1. Start by glueing some feathers down in a crisscross pattern on your headband. Allow them to dry thoroughly.

  3. Glue an arc of feathers onto the front of the baby onesie. Be sure to trim off any sharp ends so the little one doesn’t get scratched.
