Black Widow Costume For Kids, Captain America: Civil War

Let little Avengers choose their side by putting on this awesome Black Widow costume. Inspired by Captain America: Civil War, the all-in-one suit’s details include a belt and holsters.

Found this little gem on the Disney Store. This costume looks a lot better than the adult versions. I don’t think I’ve ever been so jealous.


Today I created this ’She-Devil’ makeup for Halloween.

Many of you requested a devil, so I’ve decided to try and create two: This one which is relatively easy to recreate, and another which will be more full on.

I made the horns this morning and then painted them. I make these to order, so if you require some please get in touch.

The tutorial for this makeup look is up on my channel now!
