I love Halloween.
I have wonderful memories of staying out late as a kid and Trick-or-Treating for as long as people would answer their doors. I recall making multiple trips, coming back home for dinner and to empty our bulging bags or pumpkins. It certainly was a different time back then, and somehow I want to make the fun of dressing up and collecting candy, a wonderful memory for my kids as well.
Last year my son chose to be a Power Ranger for Halloween. I’m not even sure he knew what a Power Ranger was, because he is not allowed to watch it, but that’s what he picked. I refused to buy him the associated weapon, but he was happy enough. The year before last, he was Spiderman. He was so cute in that costume but refused to wear the mask. So much for a secret identity! Oh yeah, and did I mention that Spidey is the 5th Wiggle?
This year, he was actually content to wear his Power Ranger costume again (assuming it would still fit) and with the state of well, everything, I appreciated that we weren’t going to have to spend any money on a costume.
Well, he got lucky this year and it turns out his Power Ranger costume will be retired for a new costume that we got to choose from a large selection of Halloween costumes at Halloween Party Store.
It was a tough decision for him, which costume he wanted. We went back and forth and back and forth, and a couple he chose I KNEW he had no idea who they were, so I did have to offer some guidance. Being a BIG Hot Wheels fan, it was only natural that he finally decided that he wanted the Hot Wheels Racer costume.
Here’s the picture from the website:
And here’s how the costume arrived:
This costume is made by “Disguise” and is made of 100% polyester. We got size 7-8 and it is a bit big on my son but the size 4-6 would have been too small on him. The fabric is somewhat stretchy and definitely seems durable. The helmet is plastic and although it would likely not withstand being stepped on without cracking, it appears to be fairly durable under normal use.
He was very excited to receive his new costume and wanted to try it on right away.
Like I said, it’s a bit big, but with a jacket and jeans on underneath, it will fill out quite well. It’s always chilly here for Halloween.
