DIY Cop Costume. Make an easy police costume for your child or yourself with clothing from around the house and some awesome accessories!
My son, G, is pretty obsessed with being a police officer this Halloween. Last year he was "eh" about costumes so I made him a Paw Patrol vest so he could be Ryder. It worked out well for him and he was willing to wear it. This year I decided that I should take the same approach- "make" him something that he wouldn't decide last minute that he wouldn't wear.

I spent about $43.40 for everything besides daddy's costume and the pants, but this could be a lot cheaper if you had the shirt and belt already too. This is a costume that would be easy to DIY if you had a school uniform to work with. I think black shirt and pants would work... or navy blue shirt and pants. Also, it's nice that the majority of the costume can be used for other purposes after Halloween is done- the shirt, pants, and belt all will be useful for formal events.
Of course, my son may have other ideas. It's not even Halloween yet and he wants to wear it all the time. He likes putting everyone "under arrest!"
