Kids Halloween costumes have come a long way since the vinyl one piece costumes with coordinating plastic masks. Gotta love those plastic masks with the two small eye holes and even smaller mouth hole. That elastic strap that went around the back of your head was classic.
Today, things are a little different or as I like to call it, updated. The children’s costumes are mini versions of the adults with all the bells and whistles. I love how one themed costume can take on different personas, such as; the Vampire – there is the classic Vampire, the evil vampire or the sweet vampire. Same with the Fairy costume - there is the Pixie Fairy, the Devil Fairy or the Fairy Witch.
When I was little there were two things I wanted to be for Halloween, a princess or a bride. The bride was one of my favorite costumes with the beautiful white dress and long veil. Today HalloweenExpress.com has a slightly different take on the bride costume and the little girls are loving it! Since Halloween has it’s roots in folklore and dead souls, why not add a little edge of creepiness to the ever popular bride costume.
- Monster Bride
- Skeleton Bride
- Corpse Bride
- Bride of Darkness
My favorite is the Monster Bride Costume. You wouldn’t know it by the name but it really is adorable! My daughter Sydney was the Monster Bride for Halloween last year and all her friends loved it. This year it comes in two colors, white and green. You have to get the accessories to complete the look, but your little girl will think it’s cool!
