I can't believe it already Mid-September. Halloween will be creeping up on us before we know it. Last year I bought my kids costumes at a local store a few weeks before the holiday. It was a bad idea. There were six other kids in my son's class that had the same outfit and three in my daughter's. That's what happens when you live in a small town with limited inventory. We really only had about ten things to choose from because I waited until the last minute. This year, I promised myself I was going to find an online company that would ensure my children had original costumes at a fair price. One of the greatest places I've found to fulfill this need is an online store called CostumeExpress.com. They have a huge variety of costume choices for the whole family.
My son was able to pick out the costume of his choice to review. It wasn't an easy decision. There were absolutely pages and pages of costumes in his size. It took him an hour to scroll through the website and narrow it down to these three options.
They were all great choices and totally original ideas, but I was super excited when he decided on the Pharaoh costume. My kids have always been my biggest fans and in March 2014 I have a new book coming out call The Forgotten Pharaoh. My son said if he got this costume he could wear it for Halloween and the release day party. I gotta love him for that and he definitely looks adorable in this costume.
The Child Pharaoh Costume comes with everything you need to walk like an Egyptian. There's a blue tunic that has the golden ankh and beads painted onto the material. This is a great idea for a kid's costume. I know my son would lose the accessories but when they are permanently attached, there is no worry of that happening. The tunic hangs pretty low, but you still need to wear a pair of pants underneath. We used black pants and they look great. Then's there's the gold apron with the Eye of Horus, golden cuff arm-pieces, and even the classic headpiece. I'll admit, it took me a few times to get that headdress on right, but once we got it done, it really set the whole costume off. I love how this costume incorporates so many of the real symbols of Egypt, but its still simple and fun for children. Now all I need is a pair of papyrus sandals!
