Warning: The following website may cause an overwhelming desire for BEBEHS

Seeing as how it’s August, now is – according to the catalogs I’ve been getting in the mail – the perfect time to start thinking about Halloween costumes. As a child, we weren’t allowed to celebrate Halloween (The Devil’s Holiday tm Bebeh’s Grandma) but we did go to church “Harvest Festivals” that involved dressing in costumes and bobbing for apples and stuffing ourselves with candy in a totally Jesus approved way.

My mother is incredibly crafty and creative in exactly the ways I am not and made me and my siblings fantastic hand-sewn costumes every year. I was the envy of my cheap-store-bought-poorly-made-everyone-has-the-same-one costumed friends. Sadly, my sewing skills begin and end at making square pillows and reattaching buttons. But never fear, fellow non-crafty types, there’s a company that can help your child avoid the horrible fate of going as a ghost (sheet with eyeholes cut out) or a ninja (black pajamas with plastic sword) for the rest of their lives:


The most awesome Halloween costumes ever.

Baby Evan will be 6 months (but probably wearing 9 month clothes due to thigh chubbiness) in October, which makes him slightly too large for the swaddle costumes but still in the “can’t hold things in my hands in a reliable fashion” stage. I don’t know if we’re going to do any actual trick-or-treating (although, really, it would be fantastic for me – he can’t eat candy yet but who can resist a baby dressed as a dog?) but for the sake of my baby book we’re going to dress him up. Right now I am leaning towards buying this one for Baby Evan, although all of the baby costumes are cute. But that has a lot to do with the RIDICULOUS LEVELS OF ADORABLENESS in those baby models. RIDICULOUS.

p.s. In case you’ve satisfied your need for a small, helpless being with a dog instead of a baby you can play too!

    As a Cancer baby, that crab costume would have been perfect. Blast the Internet for not being around in the 80s.

    Those are ridiculously adorable. I wonder what would happen if the sunshine baby came across a rain cloud baby? Would they be enemies for life?

    I JUST got that catalog in the mail today and Maddie picked out about 15 different ones. I thought that crab one was adorable when I was browsing through it!

  4. May I also suggest Tom Arma costumes? They are kinda pricey but an awesome quality and can easily be found on the ebays. For the super crafty people, you can also buy patterns to make the adorbs lil’ suits. The SpaceToddler was the dinosaur last year.
