This homemade costume for babies entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Kasey, the 'Heavenly Angel' costume creator:

This costume was a last minute idea for my 18 month old daughter Rylan. Rylan has some medical issues and has been trough and over come a lot in her short life, so dressing her up as an angel was perfect! The wagon idea came because Rylan does not walk yet, so I needed some way to transport her without having to carry her the entire way and I didn't want to bend her wings all up.

We already had the dress, so that was simple. I made did some research and made her wings from a post I found on Pinterest. This costume didn't really cost me any money except for the glue and paper lanterns.

Her wings are made from paper plates cut and glued to a main paper plate. As I put the wings together I also glued in a wire hanger that I took apart and shaped into a halo. I then wrapped her halo in some silver Christmas garland I already had. I also safety pinned some garland to the neck and the sleeves of the shirt she had on under her dress, but this was to cover up some designs on her shirt that's only purpose was to help keep her warm. I then glued some elastic straps on the wings and decorated them with some silver glitter glue.

The next concept was to make her look like she was sitting in the clouds. I used a blue blanket to cover the wagon and placed a child's booster seat in the wagon. I used paper machete over balloons and then taped them together and glued pillow filling to them to create "clouds." I also used battery operated paper lanterns from the dollar tree and glued pillow filling to them. I arranged all of this in the wagon and then used spray glue and pillow filling to cover the entire blanket. The lanterns lit up at night to give it more of an angelic look. If I were to make it again I would have only used paper lanterns and skipped the balloons, so that the entire cloud would have lit up.

We got tons of compliments on her costume and several people even stopped to take pictures of her. It was such a simple costume, and she was strapped into the booster seat and the booster seat was strapped down to the wagon the entire time.

Rylan was a true little Angel in every way. She would give everyone that sweet smile and loved getting her picture taken.
Simple and yet very creative costume.

The best costume that fits a perfect little angle best describes little Rylan.

What a sweet costume! I love the clouds, wings and lights but the Angel herself was precious! I love that time & love went into making the costume! I also think it says a lot about the parents because they thought ahead about keeping her safe throughout the night in her child safety seat, having lights & altering her costume for warmth while tying it all in beautifully with the theme! I love the picture that looks like she is praying!!!! She looks just like an angel in my book!!! Well done!!!!!
