Halloween Is Just Around the Corner

Yesterday, I was walking with my husband and children in our local mall. While we were window shopping, I couldn't help but notice that all the Halloween Costumes were no longer at the front of many stores. Instead they were all pushed back to the middle and had been replaced by holiday items already. If you haven't purchased yours or your family's costumes yet, you may want to try online. There are many Halloween stores where we live, but the prices are just outrageous.

If my husband had his way, our whole family would be dressed as Star Wars characters. Maybe ten years ago, I could have pulled off being Princess Leia in the gold bikini, but certainly not now. I personally would prefer a period costume like this one . . .

It is still a little bit sexy, but elegant at the same time. I have always been intrigued by different eras in history and by the costumes that accompany them. It is nice to find costumes like this that are not too revealing and are . . . classic is the word I am searching for. Although Princess Leia or Super Girl would be fun, a Grecian goddess is more up my alley.

If you are shopping online, don't forget to look for discount codes or free shipping on Halloween costumes. I buy my children's costumes online every year during the summer. I always find great deals on the same costumes that retail stores sell. Also, when I shop before fall approaches, I never see the dreaded words "out of stock."
