How to choose the best costume?
There are several factors to consider when choosing a Halloween costume for your child. While it is fun to choose a costume based on the cuteness factor, there are more aspects to consider.
Some of these include:
- Does your child mind wearing items on their head? Many costumes have head pieces, headbands and other items. If your child typically refuses to wear hairbows, hats or other items than it might not be the best fit.
It might not be a deal breaker if the included head piece doesn’t have to be used to complete the look. However, if the costume includes a hood that is necessary you might opt for another selection.
- Family Costume theme. Whether or not you plan to utilize a family costume theme is the starting point of selecting the costume. Before choosing the babies Halloween costume, decide if you plan to coordinate the entire family.
It is usually best to choose a theme based around the children and select something they are comfortable wearing. Then you can proceed with the rest of the family.
- Location. Another important aspect to consider is where you are going in the costume. You will need to think about transportation and if the costume is hard to buckle in the car seat.
It might not be worth the hassle if you have to wait to put the costume on.
- Weather and environment. The weather and location should be considered when choosing a Halloween costume. If the Halloween event is inside or outside weighs heavily on the costume selection.
You don’t want your child to be too hot or cold. If it’s cold, you can put a long sleeve onesie underneath it instead of covering the costume with a jacket. Weather is really important in factoring the costume selection for your child.
