Even though the school year has just begun. Before we know it, the holidays will creep up. And the first one that our family is looking forward to is HALLOWEEN! With five kids, that means five times the excitement. So as we began talking about what everyone wanted to be, they kept saying they wanted unique Halloween costumes this year.
Unique Halloween Costumes
As we began to explore what “unique Halloween costumes” actually meant to the kids, I learned they wanted something they didn’t see everywhere. Which led me over to Chasing Fireflies.
Chasing Fireflies To The Rescue
It’s nice to find a company that understands how parents feel. How we want to celebrate the moments of our children’s childhood. Looking back on growing up, the memories are so precious. But it’s even more special the second time around! When we, as parents, get share our child’s firsts. So Chasing Fireflies set out to help and have created a company that offers so much. Including a magical array of keepsake-quality kids’ clothing, costumes, & more.
So as I began scrolling through the Chasing Fireflies website, my excitement grew. They have a really awesome assortment of unique Halloween costumes that are exactly what we were searching for. And the best part is that they offer both kids and adult sizes!
Our oldest daughter is now 13. So she’s at that age where she thinks she no longer a kid but she wants to have fun too! Yet, as she was searching for a costume, she was becoming discouraged. All the typical ones were not made well and made her feel like a kid. That is, until she came across the Blue Brocade Pirate Costume.
This Pirate Costume is actually available in both kids or adult sizes. So she actually went with the womens size small. And it fits perfect! Definitely true to size. And I love that the bottom ruffle black pants are included.
The features and details of the Blue Brocade Pirate Costume really make it an eye-catching set. The luxe velvet and brocade coat has a high-low design that cascades down to the ground.
The attached lace jabot and gold-tone buttons also really make this costume stand out in a crowd. Just so many beautiful details! And Hannah likes the fact that it’s comfortable to wear too.
And, sold separately, but an absolutely perfect finishing touch to this costume is Chasing Fireflies Black Pirate Hat! Featuring a jaunty feather and gold trimming, it’s beautiful!
Next up, our 11 year old son set his sights immediately on the Samurai Warrior Costume. He loved the colors and design and just kept coming back to it.
The Samari Warrior comes with top, pants, gloves, headpiece, and leg armor. And the details on this costume are also really great. The shoulder armor is slitted so it stands away from the arm and appears to be more realistic in a 3d style. But because it’s made from fabric, there is no discomfort.
The headpiece also really draws attention. If features a cord strap along with horns on top and a skull detail front and center.
The textured fabric armor design flows throughout the costume and even down into the leg armor.
Truly a really neat costume!
Next up, we have Sam and Alex. Our two younger boys are really into Star Wars so they decided to do a family group costume together!
When the topic of Star Wars comes up, no doubt a Storm Trooper will come to mind. Because someone has to maintain order and protect the Galactic Empire, right!? Well, Sam thinks this Ultimate Stormtrooper Costume is definitely where it’s at.
The one piece jumpsuit is easy to get on and off as it’s made from a flexible material. Which is perfect for active kids. It’s able to bend and flex easily which will make Trick-or-Treating more enjoyable come Halloween night.
The completely molded armor has some great details in both the front and back. While also popping out from the costume to really add to the dimension.
Along with the jumpsuit, this Stormtrooper costume also comes complete with a shoulder guard, gloves, belt, and helmet. And Sam quickly discovered that his belt could double as a Stormtrooper Blaster (sold separately) holder when not in battle.
One of my favorite parts of this particular costume is the built in boot covers. It really pulls the set together and brings my little Stormtrooper to life!
I want to say that I sized up in this costume. Since the size went from a 4/6, which I thought would be too small. And jumped all the way to an 8/10, we went with the larger size. So it’s a little big on him but, because of the awesome design, you can hardly tell!
And because this unique Halloween costumes duo wouldn’t be complete without a renowned bounty hunter of the galaxy, meet Jango Fett.
Another full jumpsuit style costume that includes built-in full body armor. And it also comes with the gloves, belt, and helmet.
The helmet, like the Stormtroopers, is made of plastic and comes in two pieces. Simply velcro together to form and slip over the head. Both boys say the helmets stay on great.
Alex has also discovered that his belt can double up as a holder for his Jango Fett Blaster, which is sold separately but ultra cool. It makes noise!
But what would life be without some sibling battles and rival competitions!?
Well, Chasing Fireflies has made playtime even more fun when the kids are using their unique Halloween costumes on dress up days.
