I placed my order online for the girls' costumes today--yay for checking something off my to-do list! haha. It feels really nice to not make their costumes this year and not have that hanging over my head. I'm embracing the prepacked thing lol.
Brielle is going to be a pink fuzzy monster---how stinking cute is this?! I actually saw the costume at Walmart and thought it was too cute---but they didn't have anything smaller than Raya's size. So i ordered the size 2T/3T online which is the smallest I could find. I'm hoping it runs small or I can just alter it a little to fit her. She'll be wearing it over big bulky clothes I'm sure since it's usually cold here for Halloween, so hoping it works! I need to find her some run boots to wear with it because those aren't incuded (and I think I'll have her wear a long sleeve aqua shirt underneath.
The girls are not goingn to have coordinating outfits this year. I ended up deciding I really didn't care if they matched, because Raya was insistent that she be a mermaid, and I couldn't think of anything super cute and fun for Brielle to be that went with that, other than another mermaid. And two different costumes seems more fun than two of the exact same thing.
So anyways, back to Raya. She has no idea really about the Little Mermaid movie, but she has a Dora mermaid and has seen a Dora mermaid show, so I am guessing that is where her obsession with the mermaid has come from. The trouble is that she insists that her feet cannot show and they must be inside a fin haha. There were many costumes with tutu skirts etc. that were spins on the little mermaid (and easier to walk in!) but she wouldn't go with that idea. So I finally found a mermaid costume where her feet are covered and she ok'd it. Not my first choice if I was dressing her up, but she's totally pumped and it's fun to see her pick her own costume :-) How many times do you all think I"ll have to pick her up off the ground after tripping over that stupid tail while going door to door? LOL.
So what are your kids going to be for Halloween?
