Costume Discounters Disney Captain Hook Costume {Review}

If there’s one thing “Rocket” loves to do, its try on everyone else’s clothes.  75% of his waking hours, he can be seen wearing someone else’s shoes (usually mine), a bag, a hat, or beads :)  He loves a good costume!  Dress-up clothes are such a fun way to pretend.  Wearing a different outfit can be so fun for children who love to use their imagination and stretch their creative minds!

I think costumes are such a fun thing to have around the house, and not just for Halloween.  We were sent a Capt. Hook costume from Costume Discounters, and it has been the most exciting activity around here since it arrived.

The construction is commendable, especially for the price of $32.99.  I was certainly surprised with how many articles of clothing it came with–pants with sewn on boots, the jacket, the ascot, and the sash.  Back to the boots–cheers to the sewn-on feature with footy elastic that allows the child to wear their own shoes underneath, because you know there’s going to be some mad-dashing around corners and up and down stairs on trick-or-treating night.  “Rocket” isn’t wearing any shoes in these pictures, but you can see how some tennis shoes would hide right underneath the foot coverings.

This Captain Hook costume is a Child size for 3-4 years, so you can see it is a little loose on this 2-year-old body, but come Halloween in eight months, it might be just right!  Plus the elastic waistband, stretchy material throughout, and jabot with ties in the back make this costume accommodating to large and small bodies alike.

I like the gold trim around the coat, and though it might be a little scratchy, it adds a nice touch.  The costume photographs well!  The hat has been a HUGE hit around here.  “Rocket” doesn’t know many words, but since this costume arrived, he’s been saying, “hat, hat, hat” and wears this all the time.  It fits nice and snug around his big head, and though there isn’t a top to it, it stays put around his head and he can put it on himself.

To a mother, an excellent Halloween costume is one that can be thrown on top of warmer clothes underneath.  Ain’t no way I’m sending my kid out in only one thin layer of anything while he begs for candy in the cold.   For that reason, this is a great outdoors costume.  “Rocket” is wearing a pair of sweatpants and two shirts (one of them bright orange) underneath this outfit, and you can’t even tell.  I could probably even hide a jacket underneath the red coat.

I’m already of fan of Costume Discounters and their extensive collection of fun costumes.  Good thing, because I’ve got to get the rest of our Peter Pan ensemble for the other members of the family!  Its going to be awesome!
