Anytime Costumes Review & Giveaway

~~~THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED~~~

This year has flown by, I can't believe it's time for Halloween again! We have two little guys to dress up this year. I love picking out kids costumes each year, so much fun! I thought I would take advantage of having a coordinating costume theme one more year since they are too young to be opinionated on what they would like to be.

When I saw the Popeye & Swee' Pea costumes on AnytimeCostumes.com website I knew it would be perfect for the boys. Anytime Costumes generously sent both the costumes to us and got here very quickly.   I couldn't wait to see what they would look like in the costumes. The costumes came with all the necessary pieces to look the part of the characters but I just had to have a spinach can prop so I made those. You can read my tutorial here on how to make it.

Cole got to try on the Infant Bunting Swee' Pea costume.  This is such a sweet costume for a baby! It is a one piece bunting made of soft, bright red polyester fabric. There is a long strip of velcro on the back that secures the costume on very well. The white cuffs and collar give it a nice crisp clean look. The white hat and black detail top off the costume as the prefect accessory. Cole is 6 months and it definitely fit him well.

Ethan got to try on the Toddler Popeye Costume. The color scheme and style are just like the Popeye character. We love the bright colors of this costume. It was very easy to get on and off because the shirt, collar, pants, belt and arm pieces were completely separate from each other. The arm pieces are made of a thin foam type material that will hold their shape well. It really completes the Popeye look! Ethan is a size 4t in length & 3t in weight and the costume fits great.
