Choosing a costume for your baby’s first Halloween is a very difficult decision. My sister-in-law gave birth to her first child back in May, and we’ve been plotting her daughter’s costume since basically her first day on earth. Do you dress them up in something classic like a pumpkin or a pea pod? Do you go with a costume concept the whole family can get in on, like Star Wars or Mario Brothers? Or do you try something super original that might take some work?

Well, I think I just discovered what might be the most original costume idea for newborn twins that I’ve ever seen. This brilliant TWINkies costume was submitted to Costume Works by the twins’ mom, Alison. In order to make the costume, she used two yellow blankets to swaddle her twins, and then used cellophane, markers, and a foam board to create the packaging for her TWINkies.
