Halloween has come and gone, but I had to share my cute little bear with y’all. Fisher was asleep before the first trick-or-treaters hit our house, so we had to do a little photo shoot earlier in the evening. We set him up on a vintage quilt with pumpkins in his little bear suit. Here are the best things about his costume, besides the obvious cute factor.
It was free.
My mama and her bff bought it for Fisher from the Carter’s outlet. Thanks Mom and Tricia!
It is a legitimate piece of clothing.
It is a full suit with feet and a hood, made for real wear, instead of a cheap-o costume made for one time use. It will be his winter coat until he grows out of it (which may be sooner than I’d hoped).
It is warm and comfy.
He loves wearing it.
I’m hoping we can go this route in the future, wearing real clothes that can useful in daily life as a Halloween costume. I’ve seen so many DIY costumes that use this kind of practicality across the internet and I think it is genius. With a few handmade accessories, you can turn an outfit into a costume for a day, then wear it for the rest of the season. I’ve also heard about great finds at consignment stores and garage sales, since most costumes are worn only once.
How do you save money on costumes?
