Pirate Costume Review

Sunday, May 27, 2012 Posted by Dina N

Before I had children, I thought that kids only needed costumes one day a year: on Halloween. Now I know better: from dress-up to theme birthday parties, my kids can have hours of fun pretend play with costumes - or with whatever props they find in my own closet.

My daughter loves dressing up in dance costumes for end-of-year recitals. Over the past few weeks, she's also dressed up as a superhero and a pirate for her friends' birthday parties. Her favorite type of costume used to be anything princess, and preferably pink. We have a superhero cape in purple - and now an adorable pirate costume from AnytimeCostumes.com.

The Child Sassy Victorian Pirate Costume is very cute and includes a dress and a pirate hat. It pairs perfectly with a pair of black leggings and black boots. You can even add a plastic sword - or not, just the costume was enough for hours of pretend play for my daughter. The dress and hat are well-made, and I love the colors. The Child Sassy Victorian Pirate Costume  comes in three sizes: small, medium, and large. Anytime Costumes offers free size exchanges with no additional shipping charges in case you need a better fit.

Now that we have the perfect costume for a pirate, my kids love turning the living room into a pirate ship. They tell me we need a parrot, an eye patch, and a peg leg. I do draw the line at adding an ocean to the props. Ahoy matey! All aboard!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    My grandkids love dressing up - they have a chest full of costumes. We also hit up the after Halloween sales to add to their collection.

    Costumes like this make me wish my daughter still liked dressing up for Halloween.

    As a lover of Halloween I was pretty excited to become a Mimi as I knewe this meant I could find lots of reasons to play dress up more often. I keep a very large tote of costumes for my children and the children I care for and I encourage them to play with them as much as they would like. I think this develops a healthy & striving imagination.
    Now if only I could find the time to enjoy costumes as often as they do!
