With being pregnant this year and our family having an insane amount of travel in the next 6 weeks (Matthew is going out of the country twice + has a conference and I have two conferences), I knew that this was not going to be a year of handmade costumes for our kids.
Recognizing your limits is such an important part of motherhood, isn't it?
So when Chasing Fireflies reached out to me to see if our family would like to review their costumes, I was IN.
Each year since becoming a mom I have longingly paged through their Chasing Fireflies Halloween costume catalog. Without question, they offer some of the most beautiful and elaborate costumes available for children. Their designs, fabrics and offerings are unlike any costumes I have ever seen.
Last year I think Elias looked at their catalog almost every day of October. I have never seen a child like a catalog as much as he liked that one.
I giggled when after school Elias said to Adeline, “Hey Adeline! Let's look at the costumes!”
After much deliberation, they decided they would both be things that fly.
From the girls Halloween costumes, Adeline chose a beautiful purple butterfly costume with fanciful wings attached to her sleeves. She literally shrieked with delight when I pulled it out of the box, and rightfully so. It is stunning.
Of course, Elias wanted to be something fierce and chose a bronze dragon. The costume is incredible, with wings made of a thick rubbery material, clawed gloves for his hands and feet and a removable tail.
Without question, Chasing Fireflies costumes are an investment and not a fit for everyone's budget, but the quality is undeniable. The costumes we received are not made of that flimsy material that tears at the school Halloween party. I know my kids will be wearing these costumes for dress-up play long after Halloween.
I noticed that Chasing Fireflies costumes (at least the ones we looked at) run even sizing, so for Adeline I ordered a 4 and for Elias I ordered a 6. (Adeline wears a 3T and Elias wears a 5T/5). By ordering a size up, that also helped to ensure these costumes will be enjoyed by my children for awhile.
So if you are looking for the highest quality costumes available in designs that no one else offers, definitely check out Chasing Fireflies. I know you won't be disappointed.
Disclosure: Chasing Fireflies sent these costumes to me for review. All thoughts are my own.
