Animal Costumes from Anytime Costumes {Review}

We are SO excited for Halloween around here!  “Rocket” is ecstatic!  Lately when I open his bedroom door in the morning, the first thing he exclaims is something to the effect of “Horse!  Halloween?  Trick or treat?  Hee haa!”  I think he’s excited, don’t you?
Based on his humorously concentrated interest in cows and horses, I decided we should definitely find him just such a costume.  Fireworks went off when I told him he gets to be horse for Halloween, while his little brother is going to be a cow.  Mom and Dad are gonna be a cowgirl and cowboy, haha.  The big day is more than a month away, but this boy is already on Cloud 9 since his horsey outfit arrived!

This Brown Horsey Costume from Anytime Costumes is a little kid’s dream come true.

The accessories are sold separately, but this getup will be so easy to put together.  A shirt, hat, and bandana are going to be easy to scrounge up.

I think this costume is way cuter in person!  I was really pleased with how full the legs were stuffed, compared to the advertised online picture.  And doesn’t ours look a lot friendlier, too?!  Our horse has kinder eyes and nostril details, and the hair is a lot softer than the picture looks.

The shoulder straps on this outfit are adjustable which allows for a comfortable fit on all shapes and sizes.  The online details say that “One size fits most children ages 5 and up”, but as you can see, the horse’s feet aren’t even dragging on my 2-year-old.  You put on this costume by stepping into the middle and pulling the horse up around your waist.  It was a great fit around our toddler’s waist with room to grow, and the suspenders hold up the horse so it doesn’t have to be snug.
Hey wouldn’t this be fun for a barnyard or rodeo themed birthday?!  The wheels in my head are turning…

As you can see, my boy LOVES this horse!  Its like his new best friend!  He fluffs its hair affectionately and gives it naps…its like a costume, a dress-up outfit, an activity, a stuffed animal, and a friend all at once.
My mother made me a similar horse like this when I was little, and boy was it used and loved.  I think I wore it first as “a princess on a horse”, but it came back almost every year as something else like “a knight on his horse”, or “a cowboy on his horse”.  This costume could do the exact same thing.  Just change the outfit on top, and presto, new costume.  For boys or girls.  I think animal costumes are great for that sort of thing, and Anytime Costumes sure has a lot of them.  Cats, leopards, lady bugs, bees, bunnies, chickens, even sock monkeys!  Check em out.  Thanks Anytime Costumes!

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!
