This homemade costume for kids entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from LaTonya, the 'Thing 1 and Thing 2' costume creator:

My daughters are Thing 1 and Thing 2 from the Cat in the Hat. The idea came from a friend who overheard me call them #1 and #2. The costumes are homemade. I purchased the red tops and bottoms from a large retailer and cut out a white fleece circle and wrote on each with some black puff paint. I stitched the white mittens by hand as well as the little red fleece shoe covers to make the look complete. The big wig is actually a feather boa attached to a wig cap.

Cool costumes!! Perfect for the two little ones. The costumes look very well put together. LaTonya did a great job recreating two of Dr. Seuss' zanier characters. The girls are adorable. Great Job!!

Fantastic costumes! The best costumes are home-made with love and talented moms. LaTonya is definitely a talented and loving mom.

Great job. I love the use of feathers to make the hair. Wish I thought of that years ago. Thanks for the great idea.
