We are having the dillema of what to dress our 1 year old daughter up as for Halloween. We don't have plans to trick or treat or attend a party however everyone I speak to wants to know what she will be. Today I had a parently epiphany and decided I'd just tie a pillow case around her neck and call her SUPER ELIZABETH! This einstein hack is pretty good though, I am sort of torn. I was also told by a friend to put some blue eye shadow on her and random, non matching clothes and call her a punk rocker!

This is one of the cutest and easiest costumes I have seen. I'll need to remember this for the future.

cutest costume ever

That's priceless - and it made me laugh out loud, here at work....!

Love it. How do you I get my baby to grow hair? Is that on here some place? ;-)

Oh no! I actually did the same thing for my one-year old, right down to the t-shirt. I'm kind of freaked out by this! Okay, I made her a wig for the hair (which she keeps on for about 10 seconds), and the t-shirt' "e=mc2" is in puffy glitter paint. But I think someone is reading my brain. And now when I take her to the halloween party tomorrow, everyone will think I got the idea from parent hacks. :(

Wonderful. Superb. For once, I thought he was Einstein Jr.

I did this to my son 2 years ago and can report that yes, it such an easy, fun costume. I did put white hairspray in his hair for added effect and added radiation warning signs to his onesie.
