It is mid September and October will be here before we know it! I love fall- the cooler nights and changing colors are delightful! This also means that it is time to start thinking about Halloween costumes.
I get excited during this time of the year because this is one of those times where we get to have fun dressing up. I try not to spend very much money on my kids costumes. I can get away with it pretty easily since they are still young. I still allow them choices but guide them in the choice of costume based on what is available. I am sure this is not easily done when you have older kids! But there are lots of fun costumes that won’t break the bank and are high quality so you can reuse them in the next years and even pass it on to your younger kids, relatives or friends.
10 Tips for Buying Halloween Costumes
Make the most out of your budget by making sure you’re getting good quality costumes and that you and your kids are safe. I have some tips below.
1 Make sure the materials of the costume are safe and flame-resistant.
2 Check what is included in the costume. Are you getting a set? Does it have accessories or props?
3 Make sure you’re getting the right size. Double-check the size chart so that the costume fits.
4 Buy early and take advantage of a discount or free shipping coupons.
5 Make sure that the costume or mask is comfortable to wear. Try it on. Especially with kids and pets make sure that they can see and breathe properly.
Here are some fun costumes for your family from my favorite store shopDisney.com which carries lots of adorable Halloween costumes.
