I’m sure you’ve seen all the Autumn-themed memes by now. As soon as September 1 hits, it’s pumpkin everything, even though you could still wear your white pants through Labor Day weekend. While I love the summer and love having everyone home, my favorite season is Autumn. I loved pumpkin before the pumpkin spice craze. I loved everything orange, the crisp air, Halloween, and you can say I’m the prototypical NYC girl who travels upstate to see “the foliage.” So, when I started looking at Halloween costumes at the end of August it came as no surprise to my husband. Don’t tell him I’ve been secretly scouring the web for the best prices on Halloween costumes since January!
Now we are a few days into September and it’s completely acceptable to publicly start looking at Halloween costumes. My girls are into the superhero craze, so naturally my little guy will be a superhero by default. He doesn’t know it yet, but he loves Super Man. From his birth announcements to his first Halloween, and even his first birthday, my little guy has been Super Man many times this past year. My oldest daughter loves SuperMan as well, while my middler daughter prefers Batman. You can say we have a Batman vs Superman theme going on in our household, and Oriental Trading has something for everyone shopping this Halloween season.
Whether you are looking for the perfect Halloween themed goodie bags for your preschooler, need Halloween decor for your party, or just need costumes, Oriental Trading is your one stop shop for all Halloween. Check out my little superheroes in their costumes. My oldest is Clark Kent, which is a button-down shirt with a tie that opens to reveal Superman’s chest underneath. She can wear it with any pants she wants, which means she will remain comfortable in her costume for hours.
My middle daughter is wearing a muscular Batman, which comes with a cape and mask. Despite the bulk of the chest on this Batman costume, it is very light. This is another costume where you can use any pants that are comfortable. She said it was itchy underneath the costume, so a light undershirt to protect her skin will be necessary for Halloween. The great part is you can layer with this costume so your child can be warm without having to wear a jacket and end up covering their costume.
Finally, my little guy. Superman once again as he sports a one piece pajama-like Superman Romper. I can layer him under this romper to make sure he is warm during our festivities. I can even fit a light footed pajama under this outfit to keep him warm. This Superman romper is soft and cuddly in texture, and feels soft against his skin.
What will your children be this Halloween season? I would love to see their costumes, be sure to share on our Facebook wall! Check out Oriental Trading for their Halloween offerings before inventory is low!
