Yes, we may be in the middle of the summer, enjoying pool parties, cookouts, and outdoor concerts and events. But Halloween will be upon us sooner than you think! The end of the summer and back to school craziness will have us all busy here soon. Next thing you know, it will be time to carve Jack-O-Lanterns, buy ridiculously large amounts of sugary sweets, and find the perfect costumes to parade our little ones around the neighborhood in for Trick-Or-Treating! Time flies when you're having fun, and I like to prepare early for these events. For one, getting an early start on Halloween costumes for my family ensures that I have plenty of time to find the best ones to fit my children's larger than life personalities. Also, buying early means I don't have to pick through mostly bare shelves that have been picked clean of all the best costumes by last minute shoppers.
So obviously, I have already begun choosing this year's costumes for my kids. Xander will be a monkey (what else?!) and Kyle, my oldest, wants to go as a Goth. I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to review a costume from Anytime Costumes, and set out to pick the perfect costume for my toddler, Sophie. They have SO many adorable ones to choose from! I was torn between a few great ones,and the Sugar Plum Fairy seen above was included in my top choices. How cute is that?! But I knew my daughter would never in a million years keep the hat on, so we decided to go with the Darling Devil Toddler Costume. After all, she has got to be one of the smartest, most cunning and mischievous children I have ever met. She definitely has a devilish streak to her, so we thought this costume would be absolutely perfect for little princess. Plus, Xander can wear it next year! Yes, I actually think ahead like that!
I absolutely LOVE the Darling Devil Toddler Costume from Anytime Costumes. First, I have to say that the customer service at Anytime Costumes is absolutely stellar. Ordering was easy and painless, and my costume arrived with lightning speed. It was delivered within 48 hours of placing my order! We were shocked!
Once we opened our package, I immediately fell in love with this adorable little costume. It is made of a soft, crushed velvet like material, and comes complete with a hat that features little devil horns, a cape, and a bodysuit. The costume even has a little pitchfork tail sewn onto it for authenticity's sake! I couldn't wait to try it on Sophie! She loves her Darling Devil Toddler Costume, and she looks pretty darn cute in it, if you ask me! The costume is a little long for her, as she is petite, but this can easily be remedied come Halloween by tucking the legs into her socks. I love the hat especially, as it does tie on. This prevents my daughter from ripping it right off of her head! The little horns are adorable, too! I also really like the cape. It is a very rich shade of black and has a twirly property to it. As Sophie ran around the house giggling like the wild child that she is, her little cape went trailing perfectly behind her. Yep, she makes the perfect little devil! We pretty much chose the ideal costume to match our fearless little daredevil's personality!
Here are some photos of Sophie as the Darling Devil:
And this is just one of the HUNDREDS of costumes available at Anytime Costumes! I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking for a great, high quality costume this year. Their prices are fantastic, the customer service is friendly and efficient, and they ship faster than Charlie Sheen loses women. I definitely plan to turn to Anytime Costumes for my future dress-up needs!
