Sarah Palin wigs and Snooki poofs are so last year. But not to worry: Ellen DeGeneres has the perfect, culturally relevant Halloween costume for your little ones.
“Everyone knows that witches and vampires are scary, but here’s something that’s really, really scary,” Ellen says before welcoming Tyler, an 8-year-old dressed as a bed bug, on stage.
Tyler sported bug eyes, which sprouted up from a black headpiece. His head appeared to be tucked into the bed - dust ruffle and all - he wore on his body.
Grab an apron from Chili’s, a hands-free head lamp and a miner’s axe to pull off this feel-good Halloween costume: A Chilean miner, or, as Ellen’s pint-sized guest says, “a miner from Chili’s.”
What about a political costume? Wear a teapot, carry a present, sport a party hat and go as a member of the Tea Party.
What do you think of Ellen’s costume ideas? What creative costumes for kids did the host miss?
