Starr Ilzhoefer: Trick or Treat in Candyland

Season One's Starr Ilzhoefer has a sweet tooth when it comes to her Halloween costumes. Her favorite ensemble was a homemade Strawberry Shortcake outfit. Her husband dressed as Plum Puddin' and a friend served as Blueberry Muffin.

Her second-favorite Halloween costume was Pierrot, the French clown. She wore a huge black and white wig and wove pink and turquoise flowers and feathers into it.

For our costume challenge, Starr again turned to something sweet: Candyland costumes. She suggests that parents use her sketch for guidance as they pick up materials with a quick trip to the thrift store -- and the candy store!
