Halloween Costume Shopping With Oriental Trading

I am a proud Oriental Trading Ambassador and receive products to facilitate my posts. All opinions are my own.

Happy Fall Y’all! What did we do on a beautiful, but 90 degree, first day of Fall? We welcomed the new season by trying on new Halloween costumes! The girls have been begging to do their Halloween costume shopping for weeks now.


A few weeks ago we started browsing Oriental Trading’s girl’s costumes looking for the perfect costumes. We order our costumes from Oriental Trading every year, and the selection is awesome. We have never had an issue finding the exact costume we want.


Ellie is really into Disney’s Descendants right now. She wants to watch at least one of the two movies on an almost daily basis, and her obsession flowed into her Halloween costume. She’s going to be Mal, the daughter of Maleficent.


I thought it was going to be hard to pick a costume for Aubrey this year being that she’s 4 and changing her mind constantly. She surprised me by deciding on her costume months ago and sticking to it. At her birthday party, in June, she let everyone know she’s going to be a butterfly. But, not just any butterfly will do. It has to be a monarch butterfly. Y’all, I’m going to have my hands full dressing this one in the coming years. I can already see the piles of discarded outfits that aren’t “just right” piling up on her bedroom floor, on her bed…help me now!

Aubrey was sitting in my lap helping me scroll through costumes on the website when she let out a gasp. Her eyes lit up and she pointed at her perfect monarch butterfly. She proceeded to dance around the room singing, “oh yeah oh yeah my butterfly, oh yeah!” And thanks to the great selection of affordable costumes from Oriental Trading, my child is going to be the most joyful little monarch butterfly on the block!


I still have to buy Aubrey a new pair of black flats and prepare myself to dye Ellie’s hair purple temporarily. And there’s the matter of keeping the kids from wearing their costumes every day from now ’til Halloween!

If you have boys, there is a great selection of boy’s costumes as well including superheroes, minions, and so much more. And the baby costumes? Too adorable! I don’t want any more babies, but so many of the adorable baby and toddler costumes make me wish my girls were still that little!

Have your kids chosen costumes yet? Whether you’re looking for a specific costume or needing ideas, Oriental Trading has you covered!
