Halloween is kind of a big deal in our house…especially with our kiddos. They start begging for Halloween decorations before October even hits, so we obviously put a lot of thought into our Halloween costumes too. Last year we dressed up as a family of pirates and one sparkly little fish…This year we decided to pair off and do mommy and me and daddy and me couple costumes. As cute as the lil’ lady bean was as a fish, I think she’s trumped herself as Alice in Wonderland…
As soon as I saw the Alice in Wonderland costume when perusing the gorgeous girls costumes Chasing Fireflies has to offer, I knew I’d found this year’s mommy and me Halloween costume theme. I’ve always loved Alice in Wonderland and the BabyLit book was my daughter’s favorite read from the time she was teeny tiny. Plus, the dress has SPARKLES…My baby girl loves sparkles as much as her mama! And with the adorable accessories, we were really able to go all out. I mean a white rabbit handbag? COME ON! Doesn’t get any cuter than that? A black bow headband and sweet Mary Janes completed her transition into Alice!
Once we had costume her set, it was time for mama to look at the women’s costumes. I decided to dress up as the Queen of Hearts. Alice is obviously the star of our mommy and me Halloween costume…I’m just a supporting player, but it was fun donning the Queen’s glam gown. I accessorized with a gold heart wand which the lil’ lady bean claimed once our photo shoot was over. She’s been using it as her magic wand ever since. The fact that these costumes are multi-purpose is what I love so much about Chasing Fireflies. The costumes live in our dress up trunk so the kids can enjoy them long after October 31st has come and gone!
