Astronaut Suit Child Costume As children we've all wanted to be many things when we grew up; astronauts, doctors, firemen, policemen even superheroes and princesses. As we got older there is still that part of us that held on to those dreams. Some were lucky enough to follow those childhood dreams and grew up to be exactly what they always wanted to be. For others, there's Halloween! Halloween is the perfect time of year to fill that fantasy of, "When I grow up I want to be...".  At Halloween you can be anything you want to be! Pilot Costume

 

Want to change professions for the day? Career costumes are a simple and easy way of doing just that!
  • Want to "fly the friendly skies," but you're not a pilot? 
  • Race in the Indy 500, but you're not a race car driver? 
  • Bust the bad guys, but you're not a police officer?
  • Fly to the moon, but you're not an astronaut?
Have fun this Halloween by pretending to be someone else for the day!

You're Never Too Young To Trick-or-Treat!

The Halloween holiday isn't for another four months however, it's never too early to look for costumes.  I talk a lot in my blogs about how popular Halloween has become with adults, but today it's all about the little ones.  Infant Incredible Hulk CostumeTrick-or-treating on Halloween night is for kids of all ages from toddlers to tweens.  They do start early when it comes to getting candy!  I've seen toddlers that haven't even started toddling yet trick-or-treating.  Even though they can't say "trick-or-treat" or even walk up to the door to ring the doorbell, there they are all dressed up in the cutest baby costumes.  Mom and dad are pulling them around in their Little Tykes wagon and they couldn't be happier.  There's usually an older brother or sister pre-school to elementary school age that mom and dad are actually following around the neighborhood and the little one gets to come along for the ride.

 

Tom Arma Costumes are perfect for toddlers and infants.  His costumes will have every other parent in the neighborhood jealous of how adorable your little one looks.  You're in luck too because the Tom Arma Costume line is only available exclusively from Halloween Express!  Even though there's really not any candy that a baby/infant can have during the trick-or-treat festivities, they are just as happy to sit by and watch all the kids running around having a good old time.  It won't be long before they're dressed up in the latest Halloween costumes and running along side their brothers and sisters on Halloween night!

At HalloweenExpress.com they believe women should be able to get into the act, but in a much more sexy way.  I know that I don't want to go to a costume party dressed in shoulder pads and an over-sized jersey or a men's baseball uniform, but lose the over-sized look by adding a tuck here and there and I'm all in! Sexy athletic costumes are so much fun for women to wear on Halloween.  The names of the costumes  alone, give you an idea of how perfect they are for women who want to show their love of sports but in a more seductive way.   Playboy Touchdown Tease CostumePlayboy has stepped up to the bat with some pretty provocative costumes for any woman that has a love of sports and a love of looking sexy.
