Toddler Horton Hears a Who Costume

Finding just the perfect Halloween costume for a baby is easy when you look to characters created by the magic of Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss is a master storyteller and his books and movies have captivated audiences for years.

Horton was such an adorable and likable character – and now you can dress your sweet little one up to look just like him in time for Halloween. Your child will be the hit of any gathering when he wears the Toddler Horton Hears a Who costume.

This is an officially licensed product, so it’s a replica of the one shown in the movie. The costume is made of a hooded jumpsuit that your child will be comfortable wearing. The soft and plushy material that it’s made of is soft to the touch and that makes it very cuddle-worthy.

The jumpsuit is long sleeved, so it’ll be great to wear out for Halloween to keep your little one warm. The feet portion of the jumpsuit has rubberized bottoms so that your child will be able to walk without slipping.

Because the elephant hood is attached, you don’t have to worry about having to use any kind of string elastic like on other Halloween costumes. The hood portion of the costume has the elephant’s cute little trunk high in the air.

The elephant’s eyes are sewn on and so are the eyebrows, so you don’t have to worry about any lost parts there either. The ears on the elephant hood are extra big and wide – just like Horton’s are in the movie!

The tail is attached to the rear of the costume.  You can just move the tail to one side when your little elephant wants to sit down.

The costume has snap closures, so it’s easy to get in and out of for dressing or for any necessary diaper changes. The material of the costume is made of polyester and you can spot clean it since it can’t go in the washer. You can also find this same adorable costume in toddler size if you have a slightly older child who wants to dress like Horton.

Halloween Costumes for 2017


Deluxe Kids Monster High Clawdeen Wolf Costume

There’s a good reason that so many kids are clamoring to go as one of their favorite characters from the Monster High series. There are some seriously cool characters on the show and they’re going to be very in demand as costumes this Halloween season – especially Clawdeen.

The costume consists of an open jacket with a pink and black zebra print shirt under it. The skirt is a short one with lace hanging just out from under the hem. The skirt is done in a style like the characters to make it flare out.

The black, studded belt comes with the costume and so does the choker necklace and the boot tops. The wig with werewolf ears that are shown in most of the Clawdeen Wolf costumes isn’t part of the set, so you’ll have to buy this separately as an accessory piece.

Halloween Costumes for 2017

Harley Quinn Adult Halloween Costume

Costumes depicting characters from television shows, movies and comics are always such a big hit and this year, one of the top costumes is the Harley Quinn Adult version. In the land of comic book characters, there’s never been a rougher female villain as Harley.

Something about her character’s badness when she first appeared on the scene in the episode “Joker’s Favor” resonated with audiences. She quickly became a fan favorite. The character wore eye-popping clothes – including the harlequin bodysuit.

The Harley Quinn costume is both spunky and fun. The costume consists of the jacket that’s half red and half blue. It’s made of satin, so it’s soft to the touch and comfortable to wear.

It has gold trim along the sleeves and bottom. The cuffs of the jacket are done in both red and gold. As part of the jacket, there’s a crop top shirt. This shirt is distressed white – which means that it was deliberately made to look old.

Part of the shirt also contains red to match the jacket. The shirt portion is emblazoned with the phrase “Daddy’s Lil Monster” across the bust area. Along with the shirt and jacket combo, the Halloween costume has a pair of short-shorts.

These are a mixture of both red and blue and they’re sequined. As part of the costume, there’s also a pair of fishnet tights that Harley was known to wear. In a lot of the images for this Halloween costume, you’ll see the one of a kind wig.

It’s her hair that’s the pale blond on the top of the head to about a third of the way down the ponytails. But from there, each ponytail takes on a different color. One is dark pink and the other is blue.

Though you’ll see it shown in various images for the costume, this wig doesn’t come with the costume.  You can buy that separately. You’ll also often see the costume shown with a pair of boots. These don’t come with the costume, either. You’ll have to buy these separately as well.

This outfit comes in a variety of sizes and needs to be washed by hand.  It will be the hit of any party this Halloween season.

The Pennywise costume is meant to depict clowns through the centuries and you can definitely tell that it’s from another time and place. Pennywise, in fact, is the result of children’s imaginations throughout the years – come to life.

Kids High Five Emoji Costume

The use of Emojis in emails and text conversations is a form of communication that has steadily grown in popularity. One of the reasons is because it’s so easy to express how you’re feeling with the use of one or more of these colorful characters or designs.

With this costume, kids look like they’re a giant hand just waiting to share a high-five. The fingers are all one piece so they don’t bend separately. In the top of the middle two fingers, there is an eye view window for kids to be able to clearly see where they’re walking.

It’s the perfect costume for Halloween and it can fit kids up to size 14. It’s made of polyurethane foam, so it’s soft enough to provide comfort all night long during trick or treating.

You have to hand wash it if anything gets spilled on it.

This costume, like many of the others from the movie, is officially licensed to be sold this Halloween, so it’s made to look exactly like the character from the movie. It’s also great for shy children since they’re covered up except for where their eyes can peek out.
