Halloween Costumes Are Always Relevant... even in June :)

As I have said in the past, my sister and I are fond of throwing costume parties and while we usually do not need a reason for it, Halloween always gives a good one. Halloween costumes are always fun and you have to really put a lot of thought into your choice to get creative.

Last year, our theme was “Bedtime Tales” and people came as characters from popular fairy tales and other children’s books. My daughter Marguerite was adorable as your token pink and purple fairy. As cute as she was as a fairy, she, of course, has to be something else this year. There are no hard and fast rules, but unless you are on some fanatic streak, being the same thing on Halloween two years in a row is no fun. I was browsing though the Costume Cauldron’s online catalogue and saw this adorable Cat in the Hat costume.

I watched Seussical the Musical last December and loved it. As Marguerite is also currently being introduced to the genius of Dr. Seuss, I really think this would be a neat costume. On the other hand, she has this book called “It’s Dress Up Time”, which she regularly flips through and I can tell that she loves the clown costume in it (she always excitedly exclaims “Clown!” when we get to that page). I think this one from the catalogue would be perfect.

I, on the other hand, could get one of those genie costumes and just add a magic carpet that says "running on natural gas" because I'm obviously obsessed about the price of gas these days.

It’s never too early to think about your next Halloween costume and just checking out the online shop is inspiring. In fact, you do not need to wait for Halloween for an opportunity to wear a costume. Costumes are always fun no matter what time of the year. If you decide to get your shopping in early, the Costume Cauldron, by the way, has a secret HAUNTED HOUSE backdoor on the website that can get you a discount. To get to this backdoor, go halfway down the page to the part that says “Our Store now has over 8,000 masquerade items for you to choose from!” Carefully look for the brown comma and click on it when you spot it.

Those costume ideas are really cute. I like to get my kids' costumes at ShindigZ. They have a lot of fun at costume parties too.
