Fancy Dress for Kids

The words "fancy dress" can strike fear into some mum's hearts but I am one of those embarrassing types who uses any excuse to dress Elliot up! I love fancy dress myself so it came as no surprise to my friends and family when Elliot spent much of his first Christmas in an elf costume....or a reindeer...although I resisted the Christmas pudding one ;)

So here is a selection of some of his amazing outfits he has worn over the last 2.5 years....

Top Row, L - R
- The outfit that started it all, a Christmas Elf baby!
- A sleepy little reindeer 
- Celebrating the Royal wedding with a patriotic babygrow and a crown

Middle Row
- Elliot the baby Elephant
- Blending in with the background at our local farm
- A bumblebee (I adored this little outfit and was gutted when it got too small!)

Bottom Row
- A fearsome pirate for his 1st birthday party
- Little vampire for the toddler Halloween party
- Another Elf, this one at 13 months!

Top Row L-R
- Another day, another pirate party!
- In his Planes outfit
- About to measure up as Bob the builder

Middle Row
- The Gruffalo's Child at his 2nd birthday party
- 2nd Halloween, 2nd vampire costume! 
- Yet another Elf, this one 25 months

Bottom Row
- Elmo, this outfit won his best dressed at a birthday party!
- My favourite costume, Farmer Elliot! The ginger sideburns looks AMAZING!!
- Dressing up as a knight for World Book Day - he loves this costume as you can see from the big grin on his face!

As you can see, we're quite fond of the Elf costumes....I'm wondering how long he will let me dress him up for, you don't see many teenagers dressed as Elves these days!

Are you a fan of fancy dress or does the mere mention of it make you feel stressed?!

  1. I am a fan as long as it fits in with the costumes that we already have!

  2. I think we have some of those in our dressing up clothes for our holiday guests to borrow. It's a great way to inspire imaginative play. #MagicMoments

  3. Rest assured fancy dress can strike fear into the hearst of dads too, especially a stay at home one like myself. I'm dreadful at it. Very imaginative ideas you've come up with there.
