View Full Version : Halloween Costumes :)

So since this will be DS's first Halloween, and I as his Mommy am absolutely clueless on where to find costumes I thought Id come here for suggestions...
I really wanted to dress him up like a monster :)...Like from Monsters Inc (preferably something like Boo wore when she was dressed up like a monster).
Any suggestions or costume advice would be well appreciated! He will be almost 7 monnths when Halloween roles around (if size matters for suggestions)...

Sometimes you can find the Boo costumes on E-bay but they are very expensive. Why do I know? Because I was pregnent when they were in the stores and I didn't buy one then and now they aren't selling them. Can you tell I'm bitter? At anyrate, if you google infant Halloween costumes, you will get a billion websites that all sell the same bunch of costumes. They are also sold in the Halloween stores that pop up. Disney has been selling Monsters Inc costumes (just not the Boo one) so definately check that site out as well. Your other option is to make one yourself (this is what I do). I think Simplicity makes the most patterns but I don't remember if I saw a monster one for a baby or not.

One Step Ahead had some cute costumes- I don't recall if they have a monster one though. It may be worth looking into though.

Just an FYI, I was at Toys R Us this past Sunday, and they had a number of costumes on clearance. I picked up a Dora The Explorer costume for my daughter for $8.99.
The costume consists of a pink printed character tee shirt with an attached backpack and map, shorts and shoe covers.
The only catch is the packages may have been opened, so you need to see if it has everything you want. In my case, all the Dora costumes did not have the black yarn wig- which I know my daughter would not wear. So I considered it a good deal.
These costumes go for $25+ online.
Your milage may vary.
