I received Chasing Fireflies unique Halloween costumes for kids to facilitate this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
Now that October is here, there is just ONE thing on my kids’ minds. HALLOWEEN! We love this time of year. Being in Minnesota, it’s neat to see all the leaves change to bright oranges, reds, and yellows. It’s really a beautiful sight. Along with these changes comes carving pumpkins, dressing up for Halloween, and trick-or-treating. Another tradition our family has enjoyed over the past several years is visiting our local nursing home. We actually do a reverse trick-or-treating. The residents just love when the kids come in costume but instead of asking for treats, we hand out homemade pumpkin shaped roll-out sugar cookies! It brings so much joy to the residents as well as us.
Tired Of Boring Costumes?
While we love dressing up, as time goes on, I’ve realized how challenging it can be to find a special costume at the local stores. Because each Halloween as we head out, it’s crazy to see how many kids are dressed identically. So a couple years ago, I hunted around and found Chasing Fireflies unique Halloween costumes for kids. (Want to see what we picked last year? Head over here to see our 2018 unique Halloween costumes.)
Chasing Fireflies Unique Halloween Costumes For Kids
Chasing Fireflies was created to celebrate not just childhood, but also to celebrate parenthood! Because let’s face it, our kids bring us a lot of joy. This company has taken great care in selecting and creating magical children’s products that will charm, surprise, and delight.
They offer a select assortment of top-quality products and brands for babies and kids that include fantastical costumes for imaginative dress-up play (not to mention Halloween!), and a delightfully affordable clothing collection under the Chasing Fireflies brand. Their selection is definitely a must see. And here are some of our favorites this year!
Greek Goddess Costume For Girls
Hannah is 14 years old now and was debating about whether or not she should dress up this year. However, I told her I’d rather see teens dressed up trick-or-treating than hanging out at home on screens or causing trouble. So she decided she would continue the tradition and head out with her siblings. As she scoured the Chasing Fireflies website, it was hard for her to settle on a costume. She kept changing her mind because of all the fun options! But eventually, she chose the Greek Goddess Costume. (Side note, this one does come in adult sizing as well in case you are looking for a mother/daughter idea!)
This beautiful, flowing dress is accented with decorative Greek-y trim and features a detachable tissue lamé cape. The details on this set are just so pretty in person. But her favorite part is how everything flows as she walks.
This costume comes with the dress and cape. As with almost all of Chasing Fireflies options, you can purchase some amazing coordinating accessories too! The Greek Goddess Circlet Headpiece, Gold Coin Necklace and Earrings, and sandals help make this costume really stand out.
LEGO Batman Costume For Kids
For many young boys, there’s nothing greater than LEGOs and a caped superhero. Enter: LEGO Batman!
Kids can now morph into the Caped Crusader and save Gotham City from the Joker and other evil villains. Alex, our 9 year old, is excited to look super-cool in this mini-figure costume inspired by the LEGO Batman movie.
Every time Alex puts this costume on, I can’t stop staring. It’s really neat to see how much he looks like a ‘LEGO guy’. Even down to the hand coverings!
While I’m not always a fan of ‘masked’ costumes, Alex says he can see pretty well out of this one. Overall, I’m really impressed with each aspect and the design.
Jr. Firefighter To The Rescue
Honoring our hometown heroes is something we try to do throughout our year. So as Halloween comes around, one more way to do this is by dressing up as them! Then, we talk to our kids about what the adults who wear the uniforms all do for our community. This year, Sam decided to be a Jr. Firefighter.
One thing that sparked his firefighter interest was a local event this past summer. The fire department created a small house where the kids sprayed water to put out the (fake) ‘flames’ in the windows. Then, they crawled through a tube in the ‘smoking’ house to save a teddy bear at the end. It was so neat! They used a fog machine to fill the house with smoke, had the kids in uniform, and gave them ‘training’. The kids absolutely LOVED it.
It’s HOT! HOT! HOT! This Jr. Fire Fighter costume is loads of fun – and it’s sure to make little kids into big heroes. The overalls feature adjustable suspenders for a comfort fit. And all the little details, striping, and pockets really make this costume feel realistic.
We added the accessories of the Lights And Sound Helmet and Firefighter Water Pack to round out the costume and Sam looks amazing!
The Ultimate Collection Disney Princess Ariel The Mermaid
There has to be a princess in every bunch and that would be Lucy for our family! She LOVES all the Disney Princesses but fell in love with the Ariel Costume.
Whether under the sea or on land, Ariel is up for adventure! As curious Ariel, you’ll be part of both worlds in this gorgeous, floaty dress complete with swishy “tail.” But the best part is that this ‘tail’ allows for movement that doesn’t inhibit the princess! And yet, it’s so flowy and gorgeous at the same time!
Sequins trim the sheer straps, and embroidered shells cover the bodice. The grand “fin”-ish is a skirt that shimmers with sequins and gold-trimmed organza tiers. Add the red wig (naturally) and find your voice as a Disney Princess. This keepsake-quality costume is from The Ultimate Collection of princess costumes, designed in collaboration with Disney.
As with so many of Chasing Fireflies unique Halloween costumes for kids, adding the wig, wand, tiara, and sparkle shoes make this ensemble even more stunning.
And Adorable Costumes For Pets Too!
Don’t forget to include your furry family members in the fun of Halloween! Chasing Fireflies ALSO offers adorably unique pet costumes too!
