When I was in grade school the city held an annual Halloween costume parade at the local park. Adults would walk around and give a one dollar bill to the kids with the best costumes. The first year I remember the parade, I dressed up as a crayon box with a red pointy hat. I must have been pretty convincing because I got a dollar and a pat on the head! Every year after that for as long as the costume fit, I was perfectly content to be a crayon box, fully expecting to get a dollar at the parade. My mom was happy to oblige as it saved her the trouble of making a costume.
This sweet and clever costume from Embroider Me Boutique is sure to get some special recognition. The felt outfit pulls over the child’s head, making it easy to put on and comfortable to wear. It is stuffed with batting for a three dimensional shape and can be customized with your little one’s favorite color icing and sprinkles.
Once I outgrew my crayon box costume, I always wanted to be the characters from my favorite stories and fairy tales. This sweet Little Red Ridinghood costume by Lover Dovers Clothing has some great details that even an adult can appreciate. The red and white gingham dress features a sweet blue bow and matching apron with rows of blue ric rac and sweet floral ribbon. A red hood lined in white ric rac can be purchased separately to put the finishing touch on the costume.
How adorable is this feathered costume by DIP Designs? It can be ordered in white or yellow for a baby chick or pink for a flamingo–how clever! The outfit includes a beak hat, leggings and little orange feet–just precious!
All of these sweet and original costumes are sure to make your little one’s Halloween memorable. Next week, we’ll pick a few Halloween costumes out for the little boys.
