Halloween Fun with Chasing Fireflies

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 collectionComplete 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

Thank you Chasing Fireflies for partnering on this fun post.  Opinions, as always are my own.



  1. These costumes are just adorable!! I just bought one for my son (and I have to say I didn’t go all out on it!) but he still doesn’t seem to get Hallowe’en so I guess I’m okay for this year! Maybe I’ll check these out for next year 😉

  2. OMG your daughter’s costume is absolutely fantastic. I love how elaborate it is. Since I’m in college I have no clue what I’m doing for Halloween. I’m not too big on candy but I sure do like dressing up! 🙂

  3. They are just adorable! Love their costumes, my kids think Halloween is all month too LOL

  4. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    Both of those costumes are beyond amazing. My boys are going as Luigi and a Pokemon guy this year.

  5. Oh Man, we don’t celebrate halloween but my son would love that Captain America costume!

  6. Okay, those are some great costumes! Your daughter’s dress especially! Definitely not the “normal” Halloween costumes grabbed from the Walmart shelf – which is awesome!

  7. I have seen this catalog. One of my clients gets it. Both of us invariably have to browse it-they have such lovely items. I do love the white witch costume your daughter picked-it is stunning!

  8. Those are both fantastic costumes. The white one is just g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s.!! I know everyone’s going to love them both when they’re out and about collecting their Halloween goodies. 🙂

  9. Love these costumes. My husband has wanted to be Captain America every year since he was about 3 or 4. Him and his dad are huge into comic books.

  10. I love that you encourage your children’s imagination and creativity. Childhood is about exploring and discovering and endless hours of play and it seems like L and A get their fill of each every day. And, I love that you are capturing it all on camera. 🙂

  11. those are great looking costumes. the glasses are the perfect finishing touch
