Isn’t it interesting what your child’s first words are?  “Mama” and “Dada” were not either of my boy’s first words.  Or their second.  Boo.  Its been something like “cheese”, “ball”, or “uh-oh”.  Rocket is still adding words to his limited vocabulary, and for some reason, the word “COW” has surpassed a lot of other words I thought were more meaningful to him!  Oh well, cows are the new fascination around here.  Has he actually seen a real cow?  Not sure about that.  But cows seem to be his thing.  Couldn’t resist a chance to review a dress-up costume from Wholesale Costume Club, especially a Mini Moo Costume!

Look at this little guy!  Cute cute cute!

IC6027This jumpsuit is very soft with an outer short and furry texture, and not a cheaply-printed cotton, or worse off, flannel.  It is fully lined in a silky polyester and it feels pretty warm inside with enough wiggle room to stay comfortable.  It feels substantially heavy enough so as to keep baby warm outside if we took this a-trick-or-treating.

The bell is the perfect finishing touch!  I like that it hangs on a red collar so this doesn’t look too gender-specific, which is sometimes hard to find in baby costumes.  I’m actually really impressed that the bell is real metal–brass, maybe?–and even more relieved that there isn’t a dangling ball inside so that this looks like the real thing, but there isn’t obnoxiously loud clanking going on.

The deep dark black against the stark, clean white makes this very eye-catching.  My favorite feature is the grippy pink soles.  These are perfect for wobbly toddlers!  What a cute way and place to add slip-resistant pads–in the form of pink hoof footies :)  Cute little cow tail, too!  I’m also quite impressed with the headpiece on this.  Stuffing-filled horns and pink-lined ears show that attention to detail was applied in all the right places.  The secure and cleanly sewn velcro tab on the back of the neck above a full zipper makes this seamstress mommy proud.

As far as costumes go, I’ve been let down with the durability of some other ones, but this costume looks like it will hold up for years and years.  I even think the furry polyester will handle washing out stains easily.  God bless those words, “machine washable”.

Wholesale Costume Club has way more than just baby animal costumes.  Be sure to check out their selection of pirates, Star Trek, and super hero dress-up costumes!  If you’re gonna play dress-up, you might as well do it right!

I can’t keep from dressing up the baby in costumes!  Take advantage of it while I can, right?  Before he decides he has a mind of his own about what he wears.  Dress-up isn’t just for Halloween, y’all.  Think about all the holidays where a baby in a costume is just the perfect touch for any holiday family gathering or event!  Take Easter!

When buycostumes.com asked if I would review one of their costumes, I thought a little Easter outfit would be just too cute for the little guy.  I picked out the Little Lamb Infant Costume, and giggled when I pulled it out of the bag.  Easter pictures here we come!

Could he pass off as a bunny?  To be completely traditional, perhaps I should have picked out a bunny outfit, but I’m trying to think ahead here, and thought a baby lamb costume could be used in the future for family group costumes like “Mary and her little lamb”, or “barn animals”, or “Bo Peep and her sheep”.  We’ve got a lot of Halloweens to come, and a lot of future babies that will be wearing this!

I think the outfit is darling!  The fluffy cotton material is much thicker than I thought it would be, so it could be a great outdoor costume.  The ear hat is easy to put on and comfortable for the baby to wear, and the chin strap is soft and secured with velcro.  The footy booties have a nice tight ankle cuff that keeps them on wiggly feet, with lots of room to fit shoes inside if needed.

The pink costume satin fabric in the ears is of a good weight and feel, and attention has been taken to sewing them in securely.  The whole outfit is so FLUFFY!  Adorable.

The costume is spacious and roomy, but it could be bunchy on a smaller body and still look great.  Thus, this costume could fit a large variety of sizes.  Think multi-usage over the years.  But maybe not a 3T toddler 🙂 “Rocket”, not wanting to be upstaged by this little brother, begged and begged to try on the costume as well, and I just couldn’t stop laughing, and had to take a picture!  Oh this boy cracks me up!
