Halloween Costume Idea for Kids – Little Red Riding Hood

I love the holidays. All of them. Seriously – we even decorate for things like Columbus day. And, I love costumes and dressing up. And I love sweets and candy. So… I bet you’ve guessed it – I love, love, LOVE me some Halloween. I’ve shared some of our build-up to Halloween excitement…. I told you about how Grandma helped us decorate for Halloween, about our “pretty-scary” #HalloweenHangout event, and if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen some fun photos of Abby’s Halloween costume from Costume Express. She’s a pretty adorable Little Red Riding Hood, if I do say so myself. {Because my kid is the cutest kid who ever lived in the whole wide world. And so is yours. That’s how motherhood works…}

Kid’s Little Red Riding Hood Halloween Costume

Pretty cute, right? I absolutely adore this costume…. The fabric is good quality, and I love all of those pretty ribbon details. And, I definitely appreciated that it had a really “true” fit, since it can be tricky sometimes ordering things online. And costume sizing is tricky anywhere – a lot of them run super small, or just have odd proportions. But when you order on, they have really great charts to help you figure it all out, and Abby’s costume fit perfect. Seriously perfect.

Kid’s Halloween Costumes for Parties

We had four different Halloween parties to do to this year, over two different weekends – PLUS, you know, the actual Halloween coming up in a few days. So, I knew we’d need a couple of costumes. I did buy her a Merida costume for her earlier events – it was adorable, and will go into our princess dress-up closet for future play. But after getting this pretty Little Red Riding Hood costume, I’m so glad I bought it, because the photos are just priceless. And she had SO much fun in it – twirling in the full skirt, and hiding under her hood. We went shopping with grandma right after this party, and didn’t have time to get her changed. When customers would comment on it, she’d say she was keeping grandma safe from the big bad wolf :)

Do you have a kid who loves to dress up?

We have a big collection of dress-up gear – wigs, accessories, hats, outfits – and today Abby dressed up and told me she was a rock star. She cracks me up. She has so much fun putting on costumes that I’m always watching for fun new props and pieces to add to our collection. Well, Halloween 2013 brings more costume options and accessories than ever before – It’s no secret that some kids might want to be a superhero at breakfast, a pirate at lunch, and a cowboy by dinner – and it’s hard to please a child that changes their mind so often. {And this is not just on Halloween, but everyday, if you have a kiddo like mine….} So, while is a great place to find cool costumes, it also offers peace of mind. Costume is allowing parents to make as many free exchanges as they need to with its “I Want to Be Guarantee.” Learn more about how it works by seeing other real moms share info using the #IWannaBe tag on social media.
