Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday! I love how creative it is. I can’t wait to see if I can have some fun decorating our new home. I have some ideas and need to see if I can bring them to life! If you ask the kids what their favorite part of Halloween is I’m sure they will reply, “CANDY!”. Of course in order to get candy you have to have a costume. There are so many different kinds of Halloween costumes from cute fairies and princes, to evil queens and goblins. Then you also have your “play on word” costumes like cereal killer!
The big question is when you think of costumes do you think Cute or Scary? That was Honey’s dilemma when trying to decide what she wanted to be this year. She usually goes the non-girly route but the past couple of years she starts out wanting something more feminine. We had the honor of choosing a Halloween costume from Chasing Fireflies. There were a lot to choose from and some were so unique and fun. Honey was deciding between two costumes. One was cute and one was scary. I was surprised when she went with the cute Candy Fairy.
Candy Fairy Costume
This was just one of many unique costumes in the Girls Food & Sweet Costume category. They have some of the cutest candy costumes such as bubble gum machines, tootsie rolls, donuts, and more!
I can not say enough how amazing the quality of the costume is. I have always either made a costume, which is only good for one night because I’ve never taken sewing classes. Or we pick up a cheap costume at a party store. The material is sturdy and beautiful. The textures and accessories are all put together very well and will definitely last for years to come if you choose to recycle the costume for another Halloween or use it for dress up. This is one of the things Honey loves to do with her costumes. She enjoys playing with them long after Halloween has passed. The Candy Fairy costume comes with all kinds of accessories that you can purchase separately or not. For example if your child does not like to wear jewelry you can customize your costume to not include the jewelry and save a little cash.
Candy Fairy Accessories
This is the first costume I’ve ever seen that a pair of wings actually STAYS in place. That is because instead of using any type of Velcro the wings have straps that her arms go through. The straps are covered with soft satin so that it doesn’t irritate or rub her skin and the wings are light. The costume is absolutely amazing and the colors are as vibrant and beautiful as could be. Unfortunately after Honey’s costume arrived she found out from her best friend that she was throwing a Halloween party and the theme was “scary”. She was upset that she hadn’t gone with her second choice the scarier costume.
Thankfully Chasing Fireflies was very understanding and is allowing us to get the scary costume as well. Honey is patiently waiting for it to arrive. I know that when it comes it will be just as beautiful and well made as the Candy Fairy. Are you wondering what costume she has chosen? Take a look at theand see if you can guess. We will be showcasing her second costume on October 8th so check back to see if you were right!
