Getting six kids ready for Halloween is tough.
October is a super busy month, full of Halloween parties for the Cub Scouts, groups of friends and sports teams. And then there is the Trick or Treating.
We end up having to plan in advance and then allow for changes of mind. While we’ve been known to have William dress up as Mario (of Nintendo fame) for the Cub Scout party, he may end up Trick or Treating as an Army guy, or a zombie. I’ve learned to keep a pretty well stocked costume trunk, and I’ve learned to be ready to make quick alterations.
I was delighted then, when Costume Supercenter agreed to allow me to review one of their costumes.
I sat down with Andrew to select a costume. He is the oldest, and just went through a HUGE growth spurt, so none of our current options will fit him. (he’s also the pickiest!).
He chose this really cool Kings Robe-Adult Costume. It is a very nice crushed velvet robe with a faux fur collar and clasp at the neck. I think it would work well as his intended costume as the “King of Town” from his current obsession, Homestar Runner, or it could just as easily work as a Rennaisance King, or a Narnia character.
The robe is very well sized for an adult. Andrew is about 5’9 and the robe brushes the ground, so a taller man could still pull off this same costume.
I was impressed by the quality of the costume. It arrived quickly after ordering it and it was well packaged. It does not feel “cheap” and I am sure that it will reside in our costume chest for quite a few years to come.
Costume Supercenter has an enormous selection of costumes. The website it well organized and you can search according to age and gender, such as men’s costumes or category of costume, such as Renaissance costumes. Shipping is currently free, which is always a plus!
I currently have my eyes on some twin themed costumes for the girls. I cannot decide between Thing One and Thing Two, or Peas in pods. Does anyone else have ideas on some cute baby twin costume ideas?
