Piper was really excited when I told her that she could choose between being a pilgrim or an Indian this Halloween. I told her that if she chose one of those two, she’d not only have it for Halloween but that she’d be able to wear it in her Thanksgiving play at school too- SOLD! Ha-ha. Yea, sometimes I have to think ‘outside-the-box’. I’m just happy that my little ‘idea’ worked, otherwise I’d be in trouble.
So anyways. I was given an opportunity to try my choice of costume at the Costume Supercenter and I thought the Indians were adorable. I already had costumes for everyone in the house, except for Piper, so this was working out great. Piper just so happened to be home from school (sick) and to cheer her up a little. She sat on the rocking chair beside me and we went through the costume pages online. When we came across the sassy little Indian’s costume, she flipped. Her eyes lit up and she went from saggy, watery eyes to gleeful sparkling eyes (in a matter of seconds).
I was so happy that we went with the Indian costume because yesterday, at school, the students were allowed to wear their costumes – only if it went with a character in a storybook…we thought- Pocahontas! It was a brilliant idea, and again, it worked! When she came home from school yesterday she said that all the teachers were saying, “Oh, what a cute Pocahontas!”, she was so happy!
Would you like to see how she looked? Feast your eyes on the lovely little Sassy Indian that Piper became!
Isn’t she adorable (and so proud).
About this costume:
(The boot covers were not included. I bought those elsewhere)
This costume is called the Tween Sassy Indian Maiden Costume. It sells for $44.99, but is on sale for $31.99 (and they have a 25% off sale going on this weekend so I’m sure you guys can get it for less than that).
The costume comes with leggings, top, chest piece and headpiece. They’re made from 100% polyester and are machine washable in cold (tumble dry low or hang dry).
The costume I chose was a size small which is a 7-8 and it fit Piper perfectly. The cool thing about the leggings are that they’re footless. Though it wouldn’t have matter for Piper since she’s so tiny, but for those that are curious, these leggings are a ‘one-size fits most’.
Though Halloween comes tomorrow, it’s nice to plan ahead. The Pilgrim and Indian costumes are a great idea to use if your church or child’s school participates in fall themed programs. And right now, because of the last minute sales going on- it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the prices. As well, because of those prices, you can always purchase one for your kids for next year…just size accordingly. I know that my kids participate in fall programs at their school every year and I’ve never thought to buy their costumes. I know the girls enjoy it when I make their costumes, but sometimes it’s just easier to buy them-especially since they grow so fast.
Now, even though we went with an Indian costume, I wanted to see what type of Pilgrim costumes they had. They’re cute. They’ve got costumes for kids and adults (just like the Indians) but I really liked the men’s costumes for Pilgrims!!! I’m thinking about getting my husband one of these for next year. If I shop for him, he’ll have no choice but to wear what he’s given (LOL).
I had never shopped Costume Supercenter before and I have to say that I’m pretty impressed. So much so that I will be using them again in the future. The prices, even without the sales, are pretty reasonable and the selection to pick from are plenty. They even have Thanksgiving and Christmas costumes so for those that need a costume for the upcoming holidays- fear not, there’s still time to gear up for the festivities!
I hope you guys have an amazingly fun Halloween tomorrow, but don’t forget to check the candy!!!!
