Have your child showing off his ridiculous strength with the help of Oh Happy Day and its DIY Halloween costumes for children.

As long as you possess basic sewing skills, this vintage weight lifter costume should be a cinch to make and cost you very little. You will need permanent markers, a red t-shirt or tank top, black and white shorts and skin color nylons. The t-shirt gets cut into a tank and the nylons get stretched out using cardboard to form sleeves that will be decorated with drawn on tattoos. To make the hefty weights, black balloons are attached to a painted wrapping paper roll. To complete the overall strongman look, draw on a loopy mustache onto your child's face.

Thrifty and endearing, these Halloween costumes for children will be the life of the party.
