All for fun, fun for all! A night of adventure awaits our dashing Three Musketeers. It's easy to transform modern-day kids into the swashbuckling buddies made famous by Alexandre Dumas's 1844 novel. Start with a white shirt and colored jeans, then add simply constructed vests and capes, ruffled collars and cuffs, and floppy hats with plumes. Wooden toy swords and scabbards complete the legendary look.

Our duo stays cozy in no-sew woolly vests, made simply by shrinking and trimming thrift-store sweaters; cutoff sleeves become hats. Of course, the telltale signs of any elf are pointy ears (these are stick-on) and curl-toed shoes (theirs are crafted from painted canvas drop cloths and slip right over regular shoes).
