Archive for Halloween
Remember my post a few weeks ago about Link Costumes that the boys wanted for Halloween? Well, check this out:
|Camden couldn’t be happier!|
|Cutler was being shy for the camera.|
|Cohen was thrilled!|
Last year Halloween Express hooked us up! Along with a reader that won a $75.00 gift card giveaway! So when I saw this deal I had to share it!
This is what my boys want to be for Halloween. Where am I gonna find this? Believe me, I’ve scoured the web. Most of the costumes I find on costume sites are for adults and that won’t work. When I google it I find it on eBay, custom made for each child so they fit properly. Even then, it’s still not cheap because I’m still going to have to buy the white undergarments, sword, shield, belt and cross belt thingy. Not to mention boots and gloves!
Camden is adamant that this is what he wants to be. He’s all hung up on Link ever since we put an old Nintendo 64 in his bedroom. He’s been cracking away in there for weeks working on defeating Zelda. Lou says that game got him through college. I’m thinking he spent more time working on the game then he did in class!
So help me out y’all! I can’t sew a lick, I don’t even own a sewing machine. It didn’t matter if I did though, I wouldn’t know how to use it. Also, there is no fabric store nearby! We’re talking, traveling out of town with 3 boys in tow to look for some green felt-type fabric for a costume I can’t even create! No ma’am! So tips and tricks are needed. I could probably order supplies online, but then what? All the tutorials are for sewing machines with pins and stuff. WAY out of my league.
Help a momma out!
I don’t do much, really. I’d like to do more, but I work with what I have. The boys were just dying for me to do the bushes out front with spider webs, so here it is:
Nothing too special, but for less than $5.00 it’s enough to spook up the house a bit. I think I’m gonna buy a colored light bulb for the front porch too. What do you think, orange or black? I also have homemade ghosts and bats to hang up, but I’m pretty sure I won’t get around to it this year. They’re buried in the basement somewhere and I don’t really feel like digging in the dark for them. I suck, I know. I should have been more on top of it this year!
I can’t believe it’s the 16th of October already. Time is flying by. Today Cutler is 16 months old! WOW! Seems like yesterday I was posting pics of my belly!
That’s what Cohen said when he put on his muscle man shirt from StarCostumes.com. He was so happy when it arrived! Just watch and see.
They have a HUGE selection of Halloween Costumes in a variety of price ranges. There is something for everyone, especially for all you mom’s out there shopping for kids costumes. It seemed like they have almost everything marked down too! Gotta love that! Mom’s have to save money, and costumes are no exception!
You know what I liked most about buying online? No hassles, no meltdowns, no tears.
Let me explain.
When we shop in town at the Halloween Store it never fails that the boys select a costume that is either out of my budget, doesn’t come in their size, or is out of stock. Then they have to “settle” for something they don’t really want.
When shopping online I can narrow down the choices for them before they even set down at the computer. I can fine tune my price range and select the boy costume category. That way they are only looking at costumes I know will work for us! They get what they want, I don’t break the bank. Everyone’s happy!
So instead of leaving a store with boys in a bad mood, I get boys in a great mood when the mail man arrives! What could be better?
HalloweenExpress.com was so kind when I reached out to them and allowed me to select costumes for my boys AND allowed me to give away $75.00 in costumes! Just watch and see how happy my nephew and son were when their costumes arrived! Karcher decided on being Captain America and Camden selected a soldier costume. They couldn’t be happier!
So what are you’re little ones going to be for Halloween? Did you order online?
Here is Cohen trying out his new costume from Costumes4Less.com.
I currently have a $50.00 giveaway going until 10/1/10. Enter here.
Star Costumes has graciously allowed me to select a costume for one of my kiddos. Cutler has so many costumes to choose from that the boys have outgrown, that I allowed Cohen to select one. Of all the options available he selected the Muscle Man Shirt.
I find that so funny! He’s gonna look so cute in this! Once he gets it I’ll be sure to post some hilarious video of him acting all “tough” in it. It should be a riot!
What are your little ones going to dress up as for Halloween?
