October has finally arrived and with it one activity that my kids enjoy doing every year – Trick or Treating throughout our neighborhood. Now before some of my Christian friends blast me for allowing my kids to go through our neighborhood on October 31st, I want to let you know that we have rules in our household – no scary costumes and nothing distasteful. And yes we are allowing our kids to trick or treat on Halloween because it is fun and happens once a year. When the houses are too scary, we skip them.
So this year, knowing that my daughter is growing up, I decided to approach costume companies to see if I could review an Halloween costume. Oya Costumes in Canada has agreed to send me a Little Mermaid Girl Costume in exchange of a review.
My daughter likes anything princessy and one of her favourite princesses is definitively Ariel from The Little Mermaid Disney movie. Mermaids are renowned for their grace and beauty, which has caused shipwrecks through the ages. This mermaid costume will allow your daughter to have oceans of fun on Halloween or any dress-up time. The Little Mermaid Costume features a body hugging top with a shimmering aqua skirt and a flowing fish tail, a cute seashells headband. You can also accessorize the costume with a seaweeds boa which is sold separately. If you really want to complete the look of the Little Mermaid, you can also purchase a Mermaid Child Wig which will transform your little princess in Ariel in no time!
I am very impressed with the quality of the costume as it is sewn carefully and sparkles with you move in the sun. She really like the headband as well though she quickly remarked that Ariel doesn’t have a seashells headband in the movie. Also when she looked at the package, she saw the seaweeds boa and wondered if Oya Costumes had sent one of these as well. I told her that no and she moved on to try on the costume.
The costume is available in size XS (4-6), S (6-8) and Size M (8-10). We received a size S (6-8) which is a bit big on Jasmine but I know it will fit her for a couple of years.
Recently, we also won the Diamond Edition of The Little Mermaid Disney DVD. I suspect that my girl will not hesitate to wear her mermaid costume to watch it.
The Mermaid Costume and numerous other ideas of Halloween Costumes for kids and adults alike are available at the Oya Costumes Canadian site as well as the French Canadian site – Déguisement Halloween.
