Matching Halloween costumes for girls and dolls

October 23rd, 2012

Our Rosebud Fairy dress is absolutely adorable, but what makes it even more adorable? The matching Rosebud Fairy doll’s dress.

These pretty pink and white fairy costumes have soft pink and white velour and shimmer fabrics with rose bud trim detail and detachable wings.

If you’re planning to buy them for Halloween, though, I think both child and doll will probably need a coat. (This one is rather nice. For the doll, that is.)

Have a wizard Halloween

October 18th, 2012

If you’re in the market for a wizard, but are looking for something a little more glamorous – or just a bit different – than Harry Potter, how about this fabulous costume?

Consisting of a rich purple velour cloak with silver brocade collar and embroidery detail and including crooked wizard hat, it will be sure to turn heads. Some of them perhaps all the way around

Dolls’ fancy dress

October 9th, 2012

If you’re going out trick or treating this year – are you? – you may be interested in this adorable Baby Stella dress up kitty outfit.

Would make any Baby Stella doll look cute as a button and entirely event appropriate. You could even combine it with this baby fancy dress outfit to make a purrfect pair (sorry about that).

Owl Halloween costume

October 4th, 2012

I’m reading J K Rowling’s first novel for adults at the moment and, while I’m enjoying it very much, it’s also making me want to re-read the Harry Potters.

I should imagine there’ll be a few children going trick or treating dressed as the world’s most famous wizard, but why not go for something a bit different, like, you know, an owl.

This cape costume is easy to wear with handy side slits and made from soft brushed suedette and textured feather effect fur. It also comes with a great owl hat – twit-twoo!

Halloween costume: Spiderella

October 2nd, 2012

It’s October. Which means… *mwahahaha* Halloween!

I never used to be bothered about Halloween at all. I was one of those people who’d turn off the lights at the front of the house and ignore any knocks at the door.

But my children love it and have already started asking about costumes and trick or treating, and I’ve found myself getting excited too.

This Spiderella costume has a satin bodice with a spider net inset. The sides, back and sleeves are in a soft black panne. The neckline and sleeves are finished with hot pink net petals. The black calf length skirt is hooped and has hot pink net layers. And of course it includes a fabulous crooked hat.

Our favourite Halloween costume for everyone

October 27th, 2011

I absolutely love this costume. Great for boys, girls, babies and PERFECT for Harry Potter fans of all ages.

Easy to wear with handy side slits – so it could well work for a child who’s not keen on getting dressed up – and made from soft brushed suedette and textured feather effect fur. The wonderful owl hat finishes it all off beautifully.

It’s available in 2 sizes 18 months to 8 years and I really wish it was available for adults too.

Our favourite Halloween costume for babies

October 25th, 2011

We’re sharing our favourite Halloween costumes and this pumpkin cape is our pick for babies.

Often babies aren’t overly keen on putting on a fancy costume, so this outfit is perfect. It features loads of satin applique detail including a very mischievous pumpkin face! Adorable.

Our favourite Halloween costume for boys

October 20th, 2011

As Halloween approaches (on a broomstick, I imagine), we decided to share our favourite dressing-up outfits for girls, boys and babies. (See our favourite girls costume.)

This Monster costume is just my kind of thing because I’m a scaredycat and I don’t like to see children in properly scary costumes. This brown furry monster hooded cape with horns, ears and gold shiny spikes fits the Halloween bill, but it’s also really cute. Available in 2 sizes 18 months to 8 years.

Our favourite costume for babies is coming up next week.

Our favourite Halloween costume for girls

October 18th, 2011

The shops are full of scary masks and buckets of sweets and even my husband made pumpkin risotto last night, so I thought I’d share my favourite Halloween costumes for boys, girls and babies. First up: girls.

This pretty Midnight Fairy Dressing up Set includes a soft layered net skirt,and a beautiful set of fairy wings presented on a hanger style card. It’s a bit more unusual than a witch’s outfit and the wings are just stunning. Available in 3+ years.

Boys and babies coming soon.

How do you feel about Halloween?

October 6th, 2011

Halloween is approaching and we need to decide whether this year we’re going to embrace it or whether we going to ignore it and hide in the house like previous years.

I do appreciate the fun of dressing up, but some of the costumes are scary even for me, let alone my two young children. I just can’t see the fun in a six foot tall teenager wearing a Scream mask, walking the streets in the dark (just the idea of that makes me squeak in fear!).

What do you think? Do you find it all fun or are you a scaredycat, like me?
