It is one of my favorite times of year! Halloween! In our family it is the time of year that we really get to spend with the extended cousins and have a lot of fun. It is also the time of year that I get to be a bit creative and really test my crafting skills at Halloween costumes. Thankfully, I have a bit of help from Great Pretenders to make life a bit easier this year.
Our little girl is obsessed with mermaids right now. When I was browsing Great Pretenders website I decided to search for mermaids and this awesome Under the Sea Skirt and Top costume came up. I showed it to our little peanut and she told me that it was “PERFECT MAMA!”
When the box arrived I had to actually hide the costume after I showed her it on the hanger so that she would not wear it before I took photos. This girl was already so in love. It sparkles and shines and has a very magical feeling.
I loved how easy it was to put on and that I could adjust the tail skirt up to make it more modest for our little girl. I really liked how the bodice of the costume was made. The sequins are perfectly placed and I appreciate that they made the top longer and stretchy.
The skirt is super shiny and really fun. I like that it flairs out a bit for play time. Our little can easily get around in this and she really loves that she can see the tail dragging behind her a bit.
Although I will be making our little girls costume, I am so thankful for Great Pretenders quality costumes for our littles to wear while they wait for mom to get their costumes made. This mermaid costume is already a huge favorite in our household.
I decided to go a different way with out oldest’s costume. He wants to be Lego Batman and I have been having a heck of time figuring out how to make the headpiece to this costume. Great Pretenders came to the rescue with a couple sets that my son just adores!
The Bat Cape with Mask and Wristbands are going to be the perfect accessories to our costume this year and are going to save me some serious time. The entire costume is very well made. I was impressed with the quality of the material and that the details on the costume are not just decals.
My headpiece issue has been resolved as well. My son really wanted a mask and the Batman head and I have literally been searching high and low trying to figure out the easiest way to do this. Thankfully that search is over now and I have a very happy boy.
The entire costume is going to be awesome when it is done and I cannot wait to showcase our Lego Batman with the Great Pretenders accessories tied in! So incredibly cool!
Oh also one of the coolest parts of the Bat Hood is that it is reversible and also they sell a reversible cape to match! My superhero loving boy was totally into this part and thought it was great that he could go from Batman to Spiderman in a second!
