Dress Up Is Not Just for Halloween

Although I have boys, I do have nieces and I remember being a little girl!
Dress up, for boys or girls is always fun.  That's why I am letting this guest post happen!
How fun!

When people think of little girls playing dress up, they think of them wearing their mom’s high-heeled shoes, lip stick on their faces, and maybe wearing a big hat and sunglasses. Wearing grandmas and moms’ old cloths is not what children want when it comes to dress up. When they want to play dress up, they want to look like princesses or a favorite cartoon character. What is even more astonishing is that make believe dress up is not just for little girls any more. Little boys love to play dress up too and be like their favorite super hero or cartoon characters!

If you are looking for a Snow White outfit in a size 3, or a Spiderman outfit in a size 4, and it is not close to the Halloween season, then you are going to have a hard time finding that special dress-up outfit for your child or grandchild. Dress up is not just for Halloween anymore. Children are wearing these outfits all year round.

Birthdays are a special occasion, and children are having themed parties. Your little girl loves Ariel from The Little Mermaid, and wants a Little Mermaid-themed birthday party. You order an Ariel cake and get matching plates, napkins, and decorations for this special birthday party. That is not enough anymore. Many parents are also getting costumes for the birthday child, and sometimes the guests are encouraged to attend dressed up in a costume that matches the theme.

These special dress-up outfits are hard to find when it is not the Halloween season but can be found on the Internet all year long for a reasonable price. You can custom order just about any outfit your child likes and someone will make it for you. Many companies even make them child friendly by not using buttons and zippers, and using Velcro to adjust the sizes.

If you want to be the favorite grandma or grandpa, invest in some superhero costumes or maybe a Snow White outfit. These costumes not only make you the favorite grandparent, they also give your grandchildren hours and hours of make-believe entertainment.
