Sure, it isn't even September, but in order to be prepared for one of our favorite holidays we like to plan in advance. And that means scoping out the costumes early and purchasing them a few months in advance. Not only does that insure that we receive our costume in time, we also won't have to worry about the costumes our children want selling out.
When I started my Halloween costume shopping I went online. And the first place I looked was Buy Costumes, the web's most popular costume store.
My daughter is currently obsessed with all things lady bug. So it was a no-brainer to dress her up as one for Halloween. I searched for an age appropriate ladybug costume on the site and quickly found this adorable fluffy Baby Ladybug Costume for my daughter in an 18 month/2T.
Since it's still hot out we opted to let her model the costume off with nothing underneath. But she still wasn't happy after a few moments of being in the costume.
I totally blame a combination of the heat and the fact that she accidentally slammed a door on her head as we were getting her costume. Poor baby!
But the costume itself was adorable! And it fit perfectly. Since she's a petite 20 month old I wanted to make sure that the costume wouldn't be too large on her, and in two months I think that it'll fit perfectly! If not, I'm planning on purchasing a back up costume as well like the Little Pirate costume just in case she refuses to wear her antennas (you can never be too prepared with a fussy toddler on Halloween).
By the time we neared the end of our little photo shoot, my little lady bug was quite over the whole process! But that doesn't mean she didn't like the costume... she just didn't like it on her at the time! So I'm still holding out on the fact that she'll love her ladybug costume by Halloween-time. And if not, she can always wear it to her Ladybug Lemonade birthday party in December!
Buy Costumes has costumes for every member of the family! Not just the little ones. You can find a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles. Just about any costume you could think of is there! I love their selection of couples costumes. Even your pets can play dress up!
And Buy Costumes isn't just for Halloween. If you have a themed party to attend or are in the need for a few quality costumes for your kids dress-up box, this is the perfect site for you to shop!
You can keep up with the latest from Buy Costumes on Facebook and follow them on twitter. They even have a YouTube channel with great reviews on their costumes and more!
