Last Halloween I totally dropped the ball on my costume. My (then) 4-year-old son wanted to be Cat Boy from PJ Masks so I improvised and dressed up as a black cat to take him trick-or-treating. I solely relied on makeup to make that costume work and guess what? It was the cutest costume I made yet. Not only were we matching — kind of — but I didn't need to spend a dime on a costume that I would most likely never wear again. All I needed was some back eyeliner and boom — this mama turned into a black cat. Easiest Halloween costume ever! You're welcome.
