I have never been one of those people who loves Halloween. Don’t get me wrong, I love the candy and the season and seeing the fun costumes. But, I am just not good at it. I’m not particularly creative when it comes to costumes and I’ve never liked the pressure of coming up with an awesome costumes. So when it comes to dressing my kids for the holiday I rely on store bought costumes. I’m so happy to have found the awesome selection of Halloween costumes at One Step Ahead. They are affordable, cute, unique and can be personalized.

Max the Monkey

Just when I thought my little guy couldn’t get any cuter… I dressed him up in the Lil’ Monkey Costume.

Obviously there’s no doubting the cuteness of this costume. And I’m not just saying that because it’s on my child. In addition to being adorable, the costume is great quality. It has fuzzy curly “hair”, elastic bands at the wrists and ankles and a separate head and foot pieces. There are plenty of sweet details, too, including the belly button (!), long tail, and ears. The costume is easy to get on even a squirmy baby, as it opens wide in the back and then secures with velcro. It will be great to keep Max warm for trick-or-treating at the end of the month, but because it’s so thick it probably isn’t the best choice if you live in a warmer place.

One of the best features of the Monkey costume – and others available at One Step Ahead – is the option to personalize it. For an extra $6 you can add your child’s name to truly make the costume their own.

Okay, so maybe Max didn’t like wearing the head piece as much as I liked admiring him in it.
