If you went wild over that photo of a bunch of kids
dressed up like the cast of "Schitt's Creek," get ready for what else Lauren Mancke has up her sleeve. Mancke recently went viral when she posted this sweet
pic of her kids, Fox (pulling double duty as both Johnny and David, thanks to editing) and twins Lera
and Marigold, as our favorite TV family. But Mancke’s Instagram is full of different pop culture Halloween looks for every day in October. This year, she’s
just getting started, but her Instagram contains years of inspiration.
Here's the post that caught everyone's attention:
Many of Mancke's looks are not from kids' shows, but that's where the fun comes in, especially for babies. They have no idea who Barb from "Stranger Things" even is, but they can't talk yet and tell you they prefer Chase from "Paw Patrol." A little twisted to dress your kids up like the Stark children from "Game of Thrones"? Maybe, but if it makes you laugh, then it's game on.
Mancke often partners with online kids clothing company Primary.com, who makes affordable, colorful, sustainable clothes for kids. She uses Primary's basics as the foundation of her incredible looks, with hand-made accessories to complete the theme. For many of her posts, she'll even break down the specific pieces she's using so you'll know how to shop.
For even more inspiration, check out all the DIY group costume ideas on the site, where parents send in their own creations from categories beyond TV and movies. Plus, when Halloween is over, you can reuse these cute basics for everyday style -- genius!
