Fade In Fade Out Phantom Zombie Costume. YES!

Let me tell you how excited Cheeks is for this Halloween?
Why?
For the first time I let him get something scary, much to my chagrin.

I miss the days of dressing him like a lion, or a dinosaur or even a cat.  No, I have a typical 8yo boy who thinks the more gruesome the better.

Fortunately, we found a costume we could agree on.

Presenting: Fade In Fade Out Phantom 


If that isn't enough to make you want to pee your pants, we got a Sickle today.
Come on, the Fade In Fade Out Phantom has to have a weapon.


Of course, the unknown phantom lurkes in dark corners.  He just came out for a little photo session.

I want to thank Halloween Adventure for the rockin costume.
It was reasonably prices (under $30), made very well.  Sometimes when I get a costume for him, the seams are coming apart, the material is shabby.  So not so with this costume.  Not to mention it fits him perfectly, with matching gloves.

I have neglected to get batteries.
Why batteries?
The eyes glow.
That is all he needs to scare his poor mother.  He's also at the age where scaring people is "his thing".

Did you know there is such a thing as Zombie Walk? Oh but there is...great forums for all things zombies.

Back to the costume, Cheeks loves it so much he is currently sitting cross legged on my coffee table, playing Wii, wearing the costume.  

I will definitely being using Halloween Adventure again for his future costumes.  They can't be beat. Reasonable & great quality.  He will be using his costume well past Halloween for dress up, or as he says "Scare Mom!" day.  Good times! Good times!

What is your child going as?
Better yet, are you dressing up?

*Disclaimer: I received the costume at no charge in exchange for a review. My opinion is 100% my own.

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
