Dressing up as a beanie baby isn’t as easy as a lot of the other costumes on this list. You have to find a store that has an elephant onesie, then make the TY tag yourself. Print it out as big as you can, then use a ribbon to attach it to the onesie. You could also do with other TY beanie babies!

19. Captain America


Ginger Parrish from The Parrish Place dressed up as a modest super hero a few years ago. She wore a Captain America tank top dress with a black, long sleeve shirt and black leggings underneath. She also wore black booties and a blue mask over her eyes. We love how she was able to take this tank top dress and make it into a modest costume.
