Thinking About Halloween Costumes



My most favorite time of the year is coming up! I love everything Fall. I love the leaves turning colors, the cooler crisper air, the smell of fireplaces, and of course, Halloween! Yep, I am already starting to think about Halloween costumes for my kids as well as for me and the hubby.

We have had so much fun every year getting ready for Halloween and picking out costumes. So here I am in August looking at Halloween sites and thinking about what my daughter and boys might like. I am also checking out some very cool ideas for hubby and me (wouldn't mind seeing him dressed up like a swaggering pirate aka Johnny Depp style!)

My daughter loves Witches and Sorceress type costumes. She doesn't seem to care that she is a witch almost every year--it's just what she loves. But the costume itself metamorphoses each year as she gets older. There are so many great Halloween costumes having to do with witches and the like that I know she will spend hours checking them all out, discussing the pros and cons of each with her friends, until she makes her final choice. Personally I think she would look great in this celestial sorceress costume I found on Costume Cauldron, but if I tell her I like that one chances are she won't like it. So I'll keep quiet and she which one she picks out.

As for my boys, we usually end up with character costumes. Last year my son somehow came up with the idea that he wanted to be a worm! Of all things...a worm. And of course, I could not find a worm costume, though I admit I didn't try too hard, LOL. He ended up as Thomas the Train, and my littlest guy was the cutest vampire ever. This year I have my eye on the cute alligator costume for him. It looks adorable!

So who knows what everyone will end up being. But I do know we are going to have so much fun looking at all the costumes and deciding on our favorites. If you check out Costume Cauldron, here's a tip for you! There's a secret HAUNTED HOUSE backdoor on the website that will get you a great discount! To get to the backdoor, go to the homepage halfway down on the right and click on the brown comma in the line that reads “Our Store now has over 10,000 masquerade items for you to choose from!”
