It's October and I'm already gearing up for this month's festivities! I've already put up most of our Halloween decorations, but I'm still adding as I find new things. We also have some great Halloween costumes for the kids this year, for which they are all very excited. If you couldn't tell I really enjoy Halloween and all the festivities that come with it. I've been searching in stores and online to find the best places to shop for Halloween paraphernalia and I absolutely love what I've found from Halloween Express.
Great Halloween costumes from Halloween Express
Halloween Express houses a large collection of great Halloween costumes for just about any age. They cater to infants, toddlers, kids and adults with the largest variety I have seen from an online retailer. They offer the most popular trending costumes like Super Heros, Star Wars, Disney Characters, Fairies, Princesses, Witches and oh so much more! I was quite thrilled when I came across the Cinderella Costumes.
I told the Husband, that Jade has been Yoda long enough, it's my turn to dress her up for Halloween as a Princess. So I set out to find a great princess costume and that's exactly what I found at Halloween Express.
The 3T Cinderella costume fits Jade absolutely perfectly! It comes with a little slip that fits her waist well, but also has enough stretch to fit a child that wasn't so skinny. The slip really helps to flair out the skirt of the costume, giving it the perfect Princess look.
The bodice features a Cinderella cameo, ruffles, rolled roses and lace. The fabric is very soft and silky just as you'd expect a princess gown to be. And oh, I just love those puff sleeves!
The waist features more details, rolled roses, lace and I'm not sure what those side puffs are called, but they are just like Cinderella's dress in the movie! It is absolutely perfect.
The back features a simple Velcro closure at two different locations. It is just a little tight around the waist getting the dress on and off, but fits perfectly once it is already on. But due to the little tightness at the waist during changing, it also allows for a more closed back which I really like. It doesn't feature a big gap in the back of the costume. If we lived in a warmer climate I'd feel comfortable letting Jade wear just the costume as it is modest enough and doesn't have any gaping holes due to poor costume design. But as we live in a colder climate, Jade will most likely still be wearing a t-shirt and tights underneath just to help keep her warm.
This Cinderella Costume also comes with the matching blue headband, which although is slightly big on Jade, still stays put rather well as long as I can get her to leave it alone.
I am quite happy with the quality of the costume we got from Halloween Express. It is well made, fits perfectly and is absolutely adorable! Exactly what I wanted! And I'm not the only one that is happy with the Cinderella costume, as if you couldn't tell from that adorable smiling face! Jade will be the envy of all the other little girls out trick or treating this Halloween.
Halloween Express offers great Halloween decorations.
I also love that Halloween Express offers more than just great Halloween Costumes! They also offer Halloween decorations for inside and out! I have really gotten into decorating our home just the last two or three years. It's much more fun when you have kids around that get just as excited about the decorations as you do. This year I wanted to add to our outdoor decorations and Halloween Express has so many great items, it was very hard to choose just a few.
When I saw the little color changing pathway ghosts I knew right away that's what I wanted to welcome the trick or treaters to our house on Halloween night!
They were really easy to assemble, with very clear instructions. It took less than 3 minutes to set them up and plug them in. And they are just so cute in daylight and in the dark! Once plugged in they change colors automatically and offer great fun for any passerby.
To add even more fun to our front door, I had to add a Witch. What is Halloween without a good witch? But I still have to be careful not to be too scary as I do have a timid 3 year old I still need to be able to get through our front door each day, so I went with a humorous witch.
I mean, really! How could that not bring a smile to your face? Now I just need a clever saying to put on a sign next to her. Haha!
Putting up our Halloween Decorations from Halloween Express has my kids so excited, they spent all afternoon continually going outside just to look at them. And I have had so many compliments from the neighbors saying how great our decorations look and how they love seeing our yard as they pass. It's been a lot of fun and I"m really excited to keep discovering more great finds to add to our Halloween collections. I'm also excited to get to enjoy them all month long!
