Wonder Woman is one of the hottest women’s costumes for this year, and this Wonder Woman Grand Heritage Costume is by far the best that I’ve seen.  Fighting evil in this costume might be easier than fending off the requests for dates from other superheroes at the Halloween party!  This costume includes a top, skirt, shorts, bandolier, tiara, gauntlets, glovelets, arm bands, and shin guards.  To complete your Wonder Woman look you can also find a Wonder Woman Wig available at Oriental Trading.


#2 Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn is everyone’s favorite supervillainess personality from DC Comics and is a super hot costume this year.  Sport this stylishly colorful Harley Quinn costume to be lovingly feared by everyone no matter what Halloween party you’re attending.  This costume includes a jacket with attached top, shorts, fishnet tights, and a belt.  To complete the look you can also find a Harley Quinn Wig available at Oriental Trading.

The witch costume has taken on a whole new level with this Hocus Pocus Witch Costume.  This haltered dress can be tied in various ways so you can customize your Halloween look, and is perfect for a costume party or even just handing out candy to trick-or-treaters.  This costume comes with a microfiber dress with halter ties that can be tied multiple ways, fingerless gloves, witch hat, and witch broom.


#1 Pennywise

With the remake of the classic movie It this year, Pennywise has never been a wiser choice.  Creep people out by wandering around the Halloween party in this Pennywise costume asking people if they want a balloon.  This spectacularly spooky Pennywise costume includes a jumpsuit, vest, collar, gloves, and mask with hair.

Superhero Costumes At Super Savings from Oriental Trading



It should be no surprise to any of you that when I started looking for Halloween costumes for my kiddos that Oriental Trading was my first place to go.  Sometimes shopping for the kids can be pretty frustrating, most places either have a lousy selection or don’t have the correct sizes…but thanks to Oriental Trading I was able to find costumes for both of my kiddos that will be dressing up this year in one place, and even in the right sizes too!


This year, Batman is something that my kiddos are SUPER in to.  When my son said he wanted to be Batman, and my daughter said she wanted to be Batgirl, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to find what they were looking for but I was pleasantly surprised!  I was able to find BOTH costumes, and the addition of the Bat Girl costume being pink was a huge plus in my daughter’s eyes.


Doesn’t Jade look just absolutely adorable?  The Girls’ Pink Deluxe Batgirl Costume was exactly what she was looking for, and then some.  This costume is available in a variety of sizes, so no matter what size your little one wears, they can dress up as the superhero they dream of being.  Everything your little one needs to transform into a superhero is included with the costume so no extra purchases…awesome!

Girl’s Pink Deluxe Batgirl Costume Includes:

  • Dress with cape
  • Glovelets
  • Mask
  • Belt
  • Boot tops


Have no fear, Batman is here!  The Batman Muscle Shirt and Cape is perfect for anyone (young and old alike) to bring out their inner superhero.  You, too, can be a muscle-bound superhero hunk in just minutes with this fun costume.  Put this bat suit on and save Gotham City at your next Halloween party or get the best treats door-to-door!  All you’ll need in addition to this costume is a pair of black pants and you’re ready to rock your inner superhero.

Batman Muscle Shit and Cape Includes:

  • Muscle chest shirt
  • Headpiece
  • Removable cape


Normally Batman and Batgirl get along, but these two are battling it out for the top superhero spot.  Who do you think will win?  (She may be small, but it’s usually Jade, haha!)

This Halloween, let Oriental Trading handle all of your costume needs so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the holiday and all of the fun that it offers.

Spark Imagination This Summer With Great Pretenders



Being a mother of three children in an ever evolving technology driven world, I have set out to find ways to keep my kids entertained this summer that DON’T involve electronics.  Too often these days kids are sitting in front of a tv, playing a video game,  using a tablet or playing on a phone.  Playing dress-up and using imagination is a great way to keep kids entertained and keep their imaginations engaged.  Whether your little one is into being a firefighter or police man, pirate, mermaid or princes…Great Pretenders has TONS of adorable costumes and accessories that will help bring their imagination to life.


My little girl absolutely loves dressing up as a princess.  She is your typical girly girl and anything pink, sparkly, or princess related becomes a favorite immediately.  I got this Parisian Pink Hoop Dress for my daughter to try out and just as I thought, it quickly became her new favorite thing and she’s hardly taken it off since.


Doesn’t she look just adorable?  As soon as she put the dress on, she had to wear the heels and tiara…of course!  This new princess dress from Great Pretenders has a crystal organza inset trimmed in silver, puff sleeves and a full hoop skirt for the complete look.  What little girl wouldn’t feel like a princess wearing this beautiful dress?  The tiara is also an adorable Great Pretenders item that my daughter has had and loved for a while now.  The Pink Ribbon Tiara is crafted with rigid wiring which allows for reshaping to fit any little Princess’ head.  This tiara features a ribbon-wrapped foam based, and is further decorated with gems and rosettes, finished off with ribbons which can be left to dangle, or tied into a bow.  Silver beads glimmer in the light adding that little extra bit of sparkle.

Spark a little imagination in your little one this summer with Great Pretenders.

Find Adorable Costumes Available From Great Pretenders #Review

img_logo (1).png

Great Pretenders has TONS of costumes that will be sure to delight this Halloween.  Pick a costume that’s all put together or mix and match some of your child’s favorite items to create a new look all their own.


My daughter had a really hard time deciding on what she wanted, but she finally decided to mix and match some of her favorite items available from Great Pretenders to create a fairy costume that she is SO pleased with.  After deciding she wanted to be a fairy, my daughter created her own costume pairing together the Sequins Fairy Dress, Whimsy Wonder Wings, and Pink Ribbon Tiara.


The Sequins Fairy Dress is guaranteed to grab your attention.  Featuring a fully sequined (and elastic) top, the empire waist extends to a soft tricot skirt and is also fully lined (because fairies deserve nothing less!).  The empire waist allows for size flexibility, and the soft tricot skirt is comfortable and graceful. This dress is fully machine washable so your daughter can enjoy wearing it again and again without worrying about getting it a little dirty.  Pair it with the Whimsy Wonder Wings (which are a MUST-HAVE for any fairy outfit) and the Pink Ribbon Tiara and you’ve got one of the cutest custom Halloween costumes you could possibly find anywhere.  My princess looks beautiful in her costume and she can’t wait to go trick-or-treating knowing there will be nobody else out there with a costume just like hers.

#MagicTown Pettiskirt #Review



Magic Town is at it again with another adorable item!  This Magic Town Pettiskirt is available in a few different designs, but this one was my little girl’s favorite.  It is made of polyester and nylon and is just absolutely adorable!  This skirt is availabe in one size (6-12) but if your little one is slightly smaller than that a few safety pins will work.  That’s what I did so that my daughter could get more use out of it and wear it longer.


You can see that my daughter is absolutely in love with this little pettiskirt.  She couldn’t wait to put it on as soon as she saw what I pulled out of the package.  The waistband is covered for maximum comfort and super stretchy to fit a wide range of sizes.  This is a great item for playing dressup, or using as part of a costume.  My daughter has asked me if we can buy a few things to go along with this to be a princess rock star for Halloween this year.  You daughter can wear this pettiskirt all year round.  During the colder months just slip on a pair of leggings underneath and you’ve got a whole new and unique look that will make your daughter feel confident expressing herself.

Magic Town never disappoints, I can’t wait to add to my daughter’s Magic Town collection.

Sleeping Beauty Costume Review


I know many of my readers already know the obsession my little girl has with dress-up and anything frilly.  One of her favorite things lately is anything and everything princess, but particularly Princess Aurora, or Princess Rerora as my 3 year old calls her.  She reminds me very much of myself, a little girl in love with the fairytale life of a princess.  But then again, what little girl doesn’t love princesses right?

Costume1  Costume2

Costume Discounters has an incredibly large selection of costumes, not just for girls.  There is something for everyone whether you’re 1 or 100.  They also sell this adorable Sleeping Beauty costume that I got for my little one.  I do have to admit, it was a super hard decision to make.  Roughly ninety percent of what I saw on the website, I knew would be a hit with my daughter.  I’m really glad I decided the Sleeping Beauty costume would be the best choice.  She loves the princess dress, and I love the quality of the costume.  Most costumes I can find locally are made extremely cheaply, but this one is made to withstand some wear.  (Make sure you Like CD on Facebook for all the latest and greatest!)

Costume4  Costume3

I’m sure you can tell by these pictures, she is one little happy girl.  The costume did fit slightly larger than I expected, but I’m honestly really pleased that is the case.  She is sooooo in love with her costume and I can’t seem to keep it off of her.  Since it is a little big she will be able to wear it longer, and I’ll get to see the gorgeous smile 🙂 .
