This year, I lucked out with my son. He wants to be Spiderman and he has a really nice Spidey costume he got for his birthday this summer. He sometimes mentions being Batman, and we're about 80% covered already there. My kids love to dress up!! My daughter wants to be Ariel, and frankly after all the time (hours & hours) and money ($50) I spent last year doing a handmade Tinker Bell costume, I blew some cold hard cash on hers this year. I hit up the Disney Store a few days ago and it was the last day of the Princess 25% off sale, I was so excited. I scored her costume and accessories for under $50 and I'm done. Plus, she now has an Ariel costume for the dress up box.
A few years ago, I choose a cute pirate costume from Old Navy for my son, and it was sold out a month before Halloween. I had to go to eBay to get it, thank goodness for eBay. But selling out that far ahead of time is crazy, I think!
So, the moral of my story is: As far as Halloween is concerned, plan ahead and shop early!
Here are two cute Walmart costumes that you can have shipped for only $.97. That beats driving to Walmart for sure!
What are your kids thinking of dressing up as this year? Are you dressing up? Have you started getting ready?
