There are several different approaches to animal costumes. One of them is the professional mascot approach. In this approach, your animal costume should look as cartoony as possible. Professional mascots all have a particular look that owes a lot to Disney animation. Many of the costumes are actually made by the same companies, and they all have a very slick appearance that focuses on anthropomorphic design.
Then again, it all depends on what you are wearing an animal costume for. Sometimes, animal ear costumes are the best. A lot of people like to dress up as cats, wolves, lion, or other creatures with pointy ears because it looks attractive. With a little bit of face paint and some pointy ears, you can come up with a cheap animal costume like costume lion. This is a great approach for Halloween parties – particularly ones held in college. It will give people the message that you are fun and flirty and open to talk to strangers. More importantly for many, it is less expensive than an animal mascot costume.
There is also the approach favored by kid’s animal costumes and lion costume. In these, cuteness comes above all else. They also are cartoony like animal mascot costumes, but with an important difference. The emphasis is on the eyes and adorable expressions. They can be soulful, pouty, sunshiny – any basic emotion. Although these costumes used to be used exclusively by children, nowadays they’re more popular with adults than ever. As a matter of fact, at the Halloween party I went to last year, this was the most popular animal costume design.
Finally, there are the animal costumes that strive for realism. Anyone can be a cute cartoony animal, but if you can come up with a realistic animal costume design, people will be really impressed with your look. It is an especially good effect if you’re trying to be scary. Dressing up as a wolf, mountain cat, lion or some other dangerous and vicious animal makes a big impression in Halloween parties.
Then again, you can always feel free to combine the different kinds of animal costumes until you find the right balance for yourself. The important thing is to create a fun costume design that you enjoy wearing and that looks good on you. Uniqueness counts a lot, so sometimes you can score more points by coming up with something totally original than with coming up with something that is traditionally “good.” Feel free to experiment!

Halloween is around the corner and new parents are looking for costumes for babies. Costumes have come quite a long way since we were kids, and we are far from the homemade pumpkin costumes for babies that we all have pictures of that fill our baby books. Now you can find very ornate costumes from fairies to peacocks, and generally in all price ranges, all the way up to seventy dollars and above.
Most major stores now carry costumes for babies because they have become quite popular over the years. Everyone now wants their baby to be the cutest on the block, and costumes for babies certainly do the trick!

Fearless Lil Lion Infant Costume – Toddler (12-18 Months)
Many costumes for babies are actually bunting, which means that it is basically a sac that the baby fits into rather than having legs. This is especially useful for newborns through babies about six months old because actual sizing can vary so much in clothing, so this is a nice alternative. Also, it will keep their bodies more warm if they actually accompany older siblings while trick or treating. There are costumes available that are not bunting style, especially for those babies that are larger and fit into older sizing.
There are many options in costumes for babies available. If you have something particular in mind, you just need to do some searching and it probably exists. You are also in luck if you are just browsing for ideas because there are many options that you are sure to find something that fits your needs.
Well folks, another happy Halloween is here and you’d better have that costume ready. I am going as a parent this year, which requires no costume at all. My wife is doing the same. This is one of the least expensive costumes that I know of. That must be why I see so many of them every Halloween night. Now, if you are out there searching for that get-up at the very last minute, shame on you. What were you thinking waiting so late? That werewolf, zombie or Hollywood costume won’t be so easy to find now. Speaking of movie costumes, I see quite a bit of these lately. I mean over the past few years. I have to say that The Crow and The Matrix take the cake. And I don’t mean they’re the best ones; I mean they’re the most plentiful. Apparently everyone wants to be Eric Draven or Neo.
We love the movies, don’t we? I’m not going to lie; I would try a Hollywood costume one Halloween. I’m not sure which one I would choose, but the concept does sound fun. Maybe I would make a good Leather Face. Or maybe I should dress up like Tome Cruise and head on over to Tinsel Town to hit up the coolest Halloween parties. I hear that supermodel, Heidi Klum has an amazing one every Halloween. Hey, if they let Ice Tea in, they have to let me in. Ah, who am I kidding? I’m way too tall to dress up like Tome cruise. I’d better go with a Superman Hollywood costume instead. Yeah, now we’re talking. Dressing up like the man of steel is the ideal way to go. Now if I can just get my wife to dress up like Lois.
It’s almost time to put those costumes on. Heck, you can actually put them on now. After all, it is Halloween! Daylight doesn’t matter. It’s good to be well prepared for later. You can bet on seeing any number of goblins, super stars, athletes, monsters, lion and more at your front door soon. Be certain you have plenty of goodies to offer them. Oh and if you spot another kid with a Crow or Matrix Hollywood costume, let him know that the phase is done. This is out. Now it’s time for Nacho Libre and Superman. With these two you can’t go wrong.

With the popularity of Cats the musical, it is surprising how many people have never seen it. Almost everyone has seen a least part of Phantom of the Opera or Les Miserable’s at some point, but the musical Cats still seems to be sort of a niche thing. I think that is a shame. Cats the musical has something for everyone. For kids, it is obvious: the costumes, the dancing, and the silly songs are a kids dream. Even for adults, however, there are some great features of the story. Usually, the directing is very good and the actors are excellent. They consistently find people who can handle both the vocals and the acting amazingly well. The composition is much better than with most musicals – I have seen it five times, and it hasn’t gotten boring.
Not all productions of cats in musical are the same, however. The best place to see it in my opinion is on Broadway. Broadway musicals are always top-notch. There is such a theatergoing community there that, between the tourists and locals, they can sustain a top-notch production month after month, year after year. The actors change, but the overall quality remains the same. It will absolutely knock your socks off!
My kids liked Cats the musical so much when we saw it that they wanted to dress up like the characters. It wasn’t anywhere near Halloween, but I thought I’d indulge them. You see, in my family we really value the arts. Anything that encourages my kid’s creativity is something I’m willing to support. As such, we went out and bought supplies for cat’s costumes. We bought masks, fake fur, and a variety of other supplies. Over the weekend, we cobble together our own Cats the musical costumes.
My kids even insisted on putting on their own individual production of the Cats musical. It was a lot of fun seeing them prance around, trying out the songs themselves. They remembered some of the lyrics, and made up some of their own. I was surprised how much they practiced it. When they were done, they really had a good performance. I know that my opinion as a parent is biased, but it was still one of the most impressive things that I have ever seen them do. I filmed the whole thing, and years from now plan on showing it to their boyfriends and girlfriends. That will be fun!
Home Made Halloween Costumes
When I was growing up, my mother always waited until the last minute to get us something to wear for Halloween. We usually ended up picking out some plastic costume from the local store and going with that. Though this was okay, it was not ideal. When my brother was in second grade, he had to dress up for school but my mother had no time to get him something. This was when I discovered how much fun home made Halloween costumes could be. Mom didn’t have the time to help him, as she had a newborn, so I took over with great results.
Though having a boy dress up as a girl is probably a pretty common idea for home made Halloween costumes today, it was not quite as common when we were growing up. I took what I could find in my room to make him into a very convincing looking little girl. Because he was only eight years old at the time, the only thing that I had a problem with was his hair. He was sporting a shaved look and I did not have a wig for him to wear. I had plenty of everything else to go with his home made Halloween costumes however, and he looked funny enough to crack up our cranky bus driver, whom we had never seen smile before that moment.
No matter what type of home made Halloween costumes that you want, you can usually find things around your home to make them. You can fill in what you do not have through a variety of sources. Thrift stores are always great for things like prom dresses, wedding dresses, and even suits that won’t cost you a fortune. You can also find things in department stores or craft stores. The biggest variety of fun things you can get to go with your home made Halloween costumes are going to be things that you can only find online. Just remember to order early.
When you try to go with home made Halloween costumes, keep one very important thing in mind. You have to get started early, especially if you think the costume that you are going for is going to be extremely complicated. You want to have time to mess up and start again, which is what is going to happen when you have a really great idea of which you have never seen anywhere else. You are starting from scratch with some of your home made Halloween costumes, and you don’t want to be left with nothing if you start too late and can not get it right.

From toddlers to teens, most kids will jump at the chance to own a Disney Halloween costume! Unlike ‘ordinary’ Halloween costumes, kids will make a special spot in their closet and use it again and again for dress up play. Although they may want a different Disney Halloween costume for next year, these are all collectibles for the permanent costume collection.
Although the genuine Disney Halloween costumes cost a little more, they’re really just a few bucks more than a ‘cheap’ costume, are well made and nicely detailed. The colors of the fabrics are as close to exact matches as you’ll find. Really cool accessories are available separately.

Taking your pooch trick or treating? Disney has costumes for pets! Your pet can accompany the kids all styled out as Goofy(TM) or Mickey(TM)!
Snow White(TM), Cinderella(TM), Ariel the Little Mermaid(TM), Pocahontas and Tinkerbelle(TM) the fairy of Peter Pan fame are all popular with the girls.

Most of the Disney Halloween costumes are available in deluxe and ‘prestige’ versions, which include a little more detailing. Many are available in children’s, teen and adult sizes, so everyone can get in on the fun.
One of the best features of the Disney Halloween costumes is that the character is clearly recognizable. There’s no mistaking who your child’s character is, so there’s no chance the person opening their door with a basket of goodies asking, “You’re so cute, but who are you?” In a Disney costume, that little old lady may be tempted to be a bit more generous, too. “Oh, here, take a few more! You’re just sweet!”
