Nicole Richie Dishes on Family's Halloween Plans

This Halloween may be a battle of the wills between Nicole Richie and her 21-month-old daughter Harlow Winter Kate! While the mother-of-two — who will be dressing up as White Rabbit — envisioned her little girl in a coordinating ensemble, the determined toddler has other plans.

“I wanted Harlow to be something from Alice in Wonderland, but she really wants to be Tinkerbell,” Nicole, 28, tells Extra.

Fortunately, her struggle with Harlow is easily balanced out by the family’s newest member Sparrow James Midnight, who has little say in the matter at only 6 ½ weeks.

“I will wrap him up in toilet paper and make him a little mummy. He doesn’t care.”

And while Joel Madden is scheduled to be in Australia for work commitments during the fun-filled night, that hasn’t stopped him from planning the perfect costumes for all — an idea that was quickly turned down by Nicole!

“I had an idea that I would be the beekeeper and they could be the bees,” he says. “But that didn’t appeal to Nicole too much.”

DH went as a beekeeper and my 2 year old and I were bees at a party this year. We mostly picked it because the costume fit over my pregnant belly. And DD won the “cutest baby” award!

I can’t wait to see them in their costumes.

The bees could be a cute but cheesey idea.

My nephew for his 2nd Halloween was a mummy and they put toilet paper all over him and by the time he was finised trick or treating it was all hanging off!! It was cute and cheap to do but a pain in the you know what!

For his first Halloween he was a baby skunk and it was so STINKIN cute ;)

My daughter will be Tinkerbell this year too, after persuading me to buy her the outfit at Disneyland Paris this Summer! She’s nearly 3 and is a dead ringer for Tink anyway; blonde ponytail and cheeky smile ;D

Aw, my daughter was Tinkerbell when she was little and it was too cute.

I love the toilet paper mummy idea for Sparrow!! My niece is going to be Princess Jasmine from Aladdin lol so the Disney Princess costumes must be popular.

Brandi on

Toilet paper is a good idea for a little one.

My daughter, Lilith, nicknamed “Lily” is going to be a flower. Seemed appropriate, considering her nickname. And it was a hand-me-down costume so it works for a 9 month old!
