I have to admit, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I'm not sure if it's the amazing fall colors & weather or if it's the gobs & gobs of candy I usually have lying around my house, but I love it!
When I got the chance to review a costume from Halloween Adventure this year, I was so excited. I browsed their huge selection of toddler costumes in search of the perfect one for The Bambina and I was blown away when I found this Elmo costume:
It was love at first sight! The Bambina is obsessed with Sesame Street right now, and points out "Melmo!" on everything we see at the store. My hubby agreed it was the perfect choice for her and we couldn't wait for it to arrive.
The shipping was super fast, and the day the box appeared on the porch, The Bambina and I immediately ripped it open to try it on. I instinctively grabbed the camera, knowing there would be some excitement. As soon as I zipped her up I walked her into my bedroom so she could get the full effect in my long mirror. You should have seen her face! She was in awe of herself! She was actually Elmo!
Every day since then, she brings me her costume, holds it up and says: "On! This!" So we put it on and go look in the mirror again, and she giggles and giggles and giggles. And if a visitor at the front door happens to (accidentally) ask her what she's going to be for Halloween...we repeat the whole routine for them as well.
Before I ordered I pulled out my measuring tape and measured The Bambina's waist, chest & inseam. Then I used the sizing recommendations on each costume's page to find the proper size to order, and it fits just perfectly!
The costume quality is amazing. Elmo's fur feels just like a real Elmo, and there are smart elastic bands to help keep the hands and feet in place. I really love that she'll be able to wear tennis shoes under the costume as well without anyone seeing them.
Halloween Adventure is a fantastic stop for all of your Halloween needs. They have a huge selection -- nothing at all like you can find at a store around town -- and they've got costumes for the whole family (including the preggos!) I love the idea of not being limited to the five costumes the nearby supercenter has left on their rack. If you can think it, Halloween Adventure has it. I can't wait for the day when my hubby will someday let me dress our whole family as a theme. (The Incredibles or The Flinstones, anyone?)
If you're stumped on what to be for Halloween this year, or you haven't been able to find that costume that just speaks to you, go check out Halloween Adventure. They've got something for everyone!
