The monkeys and I have all picked out what we're going to be for Halloween 2012. We're going with the Little Red Riding Hood theme, but with an additional baby big bad wolf learning from his momma big bad wolf. Dadda monkey, however, loves to go all out for Halloween and prefers it to be scary. It's been hotly debated at our house whether or not we do scary or cute. I think we've compromised and leaning towards scary, but not too scary for our little ones (think fog machines and spider webs with cute colorful signs that say BOO!).
The costume on the other hand was difficult to nail down. Being scary and still not terrify little ones at night is harder than you might think. Also, apparently my idea of scary isn't quite enough for Dadda monkey. After quite some time of searching (Plussizecostumesupercenter.com
has some great, affordable costumes), I finally found this costume and showed it to Dadda monkey who said it would work for him. I think he still preferred to be scarier, but after reminding him that it would be night and he'd get to be dressed in all black with dark lights and fog around, he was convinced.
The outfit may not be quite as scary on Dadda monkey, but then again it'll be dark and other people don't know him like we do. It looks like it's going to be a great costume for this year and beyond. Plussizecostumesupercenter.com has some fantastic costumes for adults (mens and womens). I found one I have my eye on for next year as well. I have to say the costumes I've gotten online have been much nicer than the ones I've seen in stores and it's much more convenient as well.
As you can see, even Monkey girl got in on the act.
