Costume Round-Up for Your Little Princess

This year will be Hallen’s first Halloween. We don’t do many decorations, because it’s not really our thing. However, I do LOVE to see little people coming to my door dressed in something that their imagination created. It makes my heart happy! So, I’m just guessing that everyone else’s heart also does the happy dance when miniature heroes and princesses ring your doorbell and ask for candy (in the trick-or-treat fashion, of course).

I’ve been looking at so many things that she could be for Halloween. I want it to be something creative, because I know one day that she’ll get to choose, and I probably won’t like it as much as something I would choose. But for now, her fashion choice is my fashion choice (she told me she likes my style, so no worries)! While she’s young and has no opinion on what to wear, I don’t have to dress her in the most popular princess costume or the latest and greatest cartoon character. I can dress her in an adorable, one of a kind (maybe matching her father and I) costume. In the midst of looking for creative ideas, all I know is that I want her (I need her) to wear a big tutu as part of her outfit! And the bigger the better. I am originally from the south, so I need the dramatic effect. She’ll only be able to get away wearing a gigantic tutu for so long!

If this is your first Halloween with your scrumptious little peanut, I know you want all the adoring looks for her! So, all of you moms out there who are wondering what to dress your cute mini me in that is creative and adds a little drama (good drama), here are my top picks.

Black Cat

A black kitten is always a great classic, but a tutu on your little kitty is such a sweet new take!


 Little ones around one year old love animals and learning new animal noises, so why not dress them as their favorite animal…and add a tutu! I can imagine that Hallen would love dressing as a giant Sophie or a cute puppy!

A superhero

It’s so adorable seeing mini Spiderman and mini Batman arriving at my door with their padded costumes making these teeny little boys look like they had a couple protein shakes before they came. What would be cuter than a tutu-wearing accomplice?  It’d be a sight for sore eyes! Pick whatever superhero you loved as a child…and add a tutu!

Candy corn

Candy corn should be the national symbol for Halloween, in my humble opinion. That’s the first thing that always pops into my mind! It’s everywhere. If it’s one of your Halloween addictions, this is definitely the costume for your little princess. It’ll be the sweetest thing your neighbors will see all night (no pun intended)!

Cabbage Patch Doll hair from Yumbaby
You’re right…there isn’t a tutu on either of these sweet dolls pictured above, but what a great costume! A Cabbage Patch Doll is brilliant when you have a little girl. You don’t have to spend too much money to make them look like too different since your princess already comes with her own soft cheeks and big eyes! 
Unicorn (Romper from Belle Threads)

And last but not least, a unicorn. Such a magical little costume. Imagination is key here. Some bright colors, some tulle, and something reminiscent of a horn on her head.
