My kids love getting into costume. Just last month, the twins went to the grocery store dressed up as ninja turtles. Pierce tried to tell them it was illegal (he must have been embarrassed by those pesky younger brothers). I informed him that it wasn't illegal at all, and delighted in the outing.
Pierce may be more mature than the twins, but he isn't too old for costumes in the appropriate realm. Recently Costume SuperCenter emailed to see if I wanted to do another review for them. I had a few extra minutes, and began to browse their site. We have ordered costumes from them before and they have such a wide selection. I immediately fell in love with their Colonial Costume of Paul Revere.
The sizing for this costume starts at 8-10. Pierce is still in a size 7, so the costume was just a little large on him. Another year and it'll fit just perfect.
One thing I love about this elegant period costume is that if we ever head to Philadelphia or Colonial Williamsburg again, Pierce could have fun wearing this to some of the attractions. It packs up quite small (but does need a quick ironing after unpacking). Don't be surprised to see this costume again in a future Odyssey of the Mind production or a school play. I have a feeling it is going to get a lot of use in the future.
Readers, what was your favorite costume as a kid?
