This homemade costume for kids entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Carrie, the 'Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra' costume creator:

My children, Carter age 5, and Chloe age 3, are dressed as Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe. The kids wanted to be "something different" so I started thinking of possible couples costumes. I have pictures of old movie actors/actresses in our basement and that's where the idea ultimately came from. I put together a suit for my son and purchased a hat online. The Marilyn costume was a bit more challenging. I searched for the real dress online to look at and, constructed the whole thing from scratch. I bought sateen fabric and ribbon. I really don't know how to sew clothing so I used an old t-shirt of my daughter's, and cut it to shape, then sewed the sateen to it...that way it had a lining too. Surprisingly it worked out! It did take 2 tries, I forgot to allow for gathered areas and seams so it was too small! So, once the outfits were completed I found a trench coat for Frank online, and sprayed his hair black. Marilyn's makeup was easy...lipstick and the mole on her face. The shoes were found at a thrift store.
