Halloween fun in July

Ree and Ro went to get the mail last night and the Wishcraft Halloween costume catalog had arrived. Oh happy joyous day! They’ve already dog-eared a whole bunch of pages and marked their favorites. Twice. Maybe three times. Judging by past years, the intense scrutiny will continue and the pros and cons of each favorite costume will be happily debated until that catalog actually disintegrates. But luckily we’ll get another one in the mail just as that happens.DSC_6009LR

PS: Initial costume faves for Ree are Viking Princess, Tropical Angelfish, Butterfly Beauty, and Autumn Leaves Fairy. And Ro likes Glittery Goldfish or Tropical Angelfish, Peacock, Viking Princess, and Monarch Butterfly. It’ll be interesting to see what they end up choosing in a couple of months and if any of these first picks even make the final cut.

PPS: The joy of the Wishcraft costume catalog is only rivaled by the arrival of the Disney Princess Magazine in the mailbox. That little magazine is loved to tatters as well.

  2. That is so funny the discussion of Halloween came up today. Did I mention I am still enjoying summer, while they are on to the next thing:)

    1. Ours arrived yesterday too and Lizzie poured over it as well before declaring Medusa as her first choice. I thought the Candy Fairy on the back cover was very cute. Jeff suggested we just hot glue about $5 worth of candy on one of Lizzie's many tutus and save ourselves about $80. He clearly doesn't appreciate the magic of the Wishcraft Halloween catalog.

    2. Rhonda, that is so funny - Jeff sounds just like TD!

      Ro and Ree were fascinated with the Medusa one. I had to go find the story online to explain it to them and I think they read it 15 times. Here's the story they liked.

  5. We too just received our catalog. I tried to convince L of the Candy Fairy on the back but she likes the Vikings and all of the boy related ones....sigh! My personal fav has always been the fortune teller and the queen of hearts in that book.

  6. I had to shoot down some of the ones Tess liked, but she also likes the Monarch Butterfly, the white/traditional Angel, the Queen of Hearts and a few others.

  7. My girls faves are Monarch Butterfly (LilyKate), and Candy Fairy (Eleanor), mostly because the model is holding a REAL lollipop :-)

  8. We too spend a lot of time on the Halloween costume selection. I am sure they will look fabulous as they always do.

    Maylin usually picks hers, we order it and then about a week before she changes her mind. Has happened every year.

  9. Same exact thing going on at our house with the Wishcraft catalog. But, I'm drowning in summer water activities and don't want to think about Halloween...just yet.
