Denim Halloween Costume: Jacques Cousteau

Sharknado. Avalanche Sharks. Shark Week. Sharks are HOT this year. Well, they’re hot every year. But this year is my boy’s first Halloween, and guess what? He’s going to be a shark.


Since I couldn’t resist the cuteness of the shark costume, we could go as a family of sharks, but I wanted to do something to highlight Jasper in his cute shark cosutme. Shark victims came up, which sounds cute, but also kind of violent. So… who other than Jacques Cousteau, scientist, conservationist, lover of sharks, and compulsive wearer of denim…



The great thing about Jacques Cousteau, is that other than being a skinny old white guy, he is famous for wearing a red beanie with a chambray shirt. It can be unisex or you can feminize your Cousteau costume as well. (I’m personally going to do a “Jackie Cousteau” version.. part Jackie O., part Jacques Cousteau)  If you already have a chambray shirt in your wardrobe, picking up a red beanie is a piece of cake. Throw in your shark baby, and your costume is complete!
