Halloween is less than a month away now and already the accessories have started appearing in the shops. We never celebrated Halloween in Australia when I was growing up-it was seen as an American gimic and widely ignored. But my kids love it! After Christmas it's their favourite event of the year, so I really don't have a problem with going a little overboard about the whole thing.
Halloween is a great excuse to dress up and be silly. I have been browsing the halloween costumes at Amazon.com and they have some seriously cute getups. The baby costumes are great (well most of them-not sure why anyone would want to dress their baby up like a big banana)-I wish I had a baby again when I see the pictures!
I love the cute Baby Bat costume (12-18 months), or what about the Princess Leia costume, complete with buns, for 6-12 month olds. There's even a Baby Elephant Halloween costume for 0-6 months old.
Go take a look for yourself. For older kids there's Hello Kitty, The Star Wars Clone Trooper costume, all the Super Heroes, Vampires, and Pirates, Little Mermaid (a gorgeous Ariel wig comes separately), Monster Bride and Gothic Witch. There are even costumes for the dog!
Amazon are offering free shipping for orders of over $25 from their Halloween Costume Store (selected merchants) although I think this only refers to orders within the USA.
