Video we love: the battle of the mums heats up

Halloween is just around the corner which gives us mums yet another reason to compete with one another about who made the best homemade costume, who offers the best treats for the trick or treaters and who can carve a pumpkin into the coolest cat.

Well, I’m raising my champagne glass and putting my hand down to say Not Me. And so are these hilarious gals from the Breakwomb mums who poke fun at the mummy wars pretty damn perfectly in this hellish Halloween video.

Homemade, homegrown caramel apples? Sewn peacock costume with emerald and real feather embellishments?

For some mums, it’s doable. For other mums, it’s ridiculous. And this is exactly what our featured video for tonight shows us. Come and share at a laugh with the always funny BreakWomb ladies take on Halloween.

If you’ve ever pulled together a costume at the very last minute using toilet paper, scotch tape and cardboard boxes from Bunnings, then you will know exactly what these ladies are talking about.

Of course, if you are looking to get creative this year, then check out some of our favourite DIY halloween costumes and infant and toddler costumes.  Even if your kids will be going dressed up as Iron Man and Elsa (for the third year in a row) like mine, it’s always fun to see just how crafty some parents can be.

And, if you start now, you might be able to put something together for Halloween 2017.

Fingers crossed.
