9 DIY Ideas for Descendants-Inspired Costumes

If your kids are obsessed with Descendents 2, they'll likely want to dress as Evie for Halloween. Instead of shelling out dollars at Party City, try these DIY tricks.


How many times have you had to sit through Descendants and the new sequel? Countless? Then we can already guess that the kids will want to dress up as their favorite character from the Disney sequel.

Whether your kids are inspired by the villains of the Isle or the royalty of Auradon, send them trick-or-treating in style, dressed as their favorite troublemakers.
