Crazy costumes for kids

costumes2012b[1]I recently had to research popular costumes for 2012 to write a Halloween feature story. The article talked about costumes for kids and adults, but we didn’t cover babies and pets.

So I thought I’d take this time to show you a few costumes I found on buycostumes.com that made me laugh. I’m not sure if it’s too late to get your baby or dog one of these, but if so, there’s always next year.

Astronaut Baby was one of the cutest choices I came across. If the right movie producer gets a look at this one, I’m sure we will be subjected to a comedy about a baby who crawls away and onto a U.S. spacecraft.

I’m not really sure why bacon has become a popular Halloween costume in recent years, other than the fact that bacon is a food that is loved by many, but for some reason, this Baby Bacon costume really stood out amongst others.

(O.K. I’ll admit it. I was that little girl. I also had an Ewok village.) I guess that’s why I found this costume so cute. Put it on your munchkin, and you can have your very on personal Ewok.

I’m not sure if any of you remember the viral video of the kid who proclaimed “I like turtles” when a TV reporter asked him about the zombie costume he was wearing one Halloween (Google it), but I bet this kid would have gone nuts over this costume when he was small.

  1. I'd definitely agree that the fatter the baby, the cuter the baby pig costume would be just like in that picture you included in your blog post!
