You don't need X-ray vision to see that when your kids create these speedy superhero costumes, they can mix and match their own amazingly awesome attributes. Each of these outfits starts with leggings and a long-sleeve T-shirt (which don't even have to match). Then come the accessories: head bands, eye masks, chest letters, capes, lightning bolts, and belts.

These girls were transformed into hula dancers in one afternoon. What's their secret? Their leis are made of vibrantly colored gift bows and their swinging skirts are fashioned from rope-style mop heads. The dancer on the left is even a ukulele player; her instrument is made out of recycled cardboard cereal boxes, a paper-towel tube, and rubber bands.
Howdy, pardner. To turn your kid into a charismatic cowboy, just rustle up some brown-paper grocery and trash-compactor bags. When you get home, snip and punch them into a fringed vest and chaps, then add paper-fastener studs and candy-cup conchos. A mop-maned horse is ready to accompany this rider on a hunt for candy.
Hip, hip, hooray! The crowd will go wild for this cheerleader and her very cheer-full ensemble. The pleated skirt is made from strips of yellow sponge cloths and blue tape, and the pom-poms are made from checkered mop heads. Bright shoelaces, dot stickers, and a paper-star cutout deserve extra applause.
The prettiest princesses must wear lots of lace, and paper doilies will do splendidly. These girls are dressed in underskirts made from plastic kitchen bags and pleated paper place mats, and overskirts made from plastic tablecloths and doilies. Their ruffled jabots are made of doilies cut in fan shapes of graduated sizes. Now, where are their knights in shining armor?
To the dragon's lair! Via the baking aisle! These two make an imposing knight and dragon team. The breastplate and the dragon's scales are candy cups; the leg and arm armor is cut from aluminum pans; a folded pie tin is the hilt of the foil-clad broadsword. No need to fear the baby dragon -- she breathes milk and her spikes are made of sponges.
