Welcome to October – a.k.a Halloween month according to my children! The simple joys that the kids find in play-acting is taken to a whole new level this time of year. And this mama loves celebrating the childhood creativity that comes along with putting on a costume and fully inhabiting a character.
As in previous years, the kiddos devour the Chasing Fireflies catalog upon arrival and it was a true treat for their favorite Halloween costumes to arrive in the mail.
My little guy’s interest in superheros continues to grow, and he confidently selected the Captain America costume upon spotting the boy’s superheros costume collection. Complete with paddled muscles, gloves, boot-covers and a suped-up belt – with an incredible added shield to block enemy fire. AA proudly steps into Captain America’s persona as soon as the costume goes on – and it’s such great fun to see an explosion in his imagination. Best of all, he still presents in a fully costumed look, even when the mask comes off.
Our little big girl still very much lives in a world of fantasy and dress up play. The costume drawer spills over nearly every single day as toys and props are woven into her originative dress-up stories. She finally decided on the white witch costume after loving the spook-factor in the girls witch costume selections. This costume combines the best of both worlds for LP; featuring whimsical layers of tulle – with the mystery of a friendly witch. The added broom, hat and white beaded chocker complete the look, and an additional petticoat brings the perfect amount of poof-factor. She is absolutely smitten with good witch loveliness.
If you’re looking for stand-out costumes of exceptional quality to survive the trenches of dress-of-play – Chasing Fireflies is absolutely the way to go!
Have fun celebrating! BWA HA HAAA
