Adrian and Lucia love all aspects of playing dress up; taking on a specific character; concocting elaborate stories, and entering make-believe worlds. I adore watching the creativity that comes along with putting on a costume. It is truly childhood at its best. Although we have a lot of costumes and props in our house (mostly Lucia’s), the majority have partially-disintegrated after only a few wearings.
Naturally, Halloween is a big deal for the kids. And Lucia and Adrian study the Chasing Fireflies Wishcraft catalog as soon as it arrives each year (as mentioned in last year’s Halloween post). We were in the midst of making costume decisions when a request to test out Chasing Fireflies Halloween costumes serendipitously appeared. Although part of me really wanted to dress the kids as matching little gnomes (how cute would that be?!). I absolutely LOVE Adrian and Lucia’s ultimate costume choices.
I was incredibly excited for Adrian, whose costume collection pales in comparison to his sister’s exploding tulle drawer. He is so proud of his Ninja Warrior costume and has worn a portion of it nearly ever single day (including the gold lame belt over his regular clothes). Since Chasing Fireflies craftsmanship is exceptional, I don’t have to worry about the costume deteriorating before October 31st. I’m so glad that my boy can Ninja on until his little heart desires. The costume came with a gold headband/lower facial scarf, however, this Ninja doesn’t get down with wearing things on his head. It also came with a super blunt toy sword. I imagine that Adrian would be ALL OVER this, but his mama doesn’t get down with that sort of stuff right now. But who knows, that stance may change soon as my parenting philosophies often do.
Without further ado, behold the stealthy Ninja:
He appears, covertly, to protect endangered corners of New York City.
He is well known for his slick moves and insistence on particular footwear.
He may use his superhuman smile to leverage others.
It is believed that forces of evil plummet in his mere presence.
The Ninja’s big sister fell in love with so many of the Chasing Fireflies costume options. Their collection for girls is truly whimsical. Many of the Fairyesque costumes could even be worn again for a birthday or special event. Lucia’s magnificent costume choice reflects one of her current obsessions…
Meet the Magical Unicorn who lives in the enchanted forest:
It is here that she summons her mystical powers.
And spends much of her time searching for magical gems (a.k.a acorns) to tuck deep into her special collection (a drawer under her bed).
She catches the power and energy of the sun through her spiral horn, as her dazzling white coat and magnificent flowing pink tail shimmer in the light.
She is known throughout the woodlands for her joy-spreading spirit and ability to find magic in the every day.
