Do you love shopping for your little ones Halloween costume?

I get so excited for Halloween! There is nowhere to shop in this tiny town for costumes so I go online and there are so many adorable Halloween costumes, it’s really hard to decide on just one. My daughter is 2 and I am thinking of getting her this dress for Hallween this year:

It’s . I don’t know how much other parents spend on their kids but seems fine to me. So, about how much money do you spend on Halloween? And do you love shopping for costumes as much as I do? 🙂
BQ: What is your child going as?

    Halloween is our favorite holiday! We go all out on costumes here so 40 bucks is worth it! We go to all the halloween store when they come and pick out what we wanna be and get every accessory we think we might need, which at the end has a pretty big price tag! We want our daughter to have as much fun as we do!

    Don’t know what she wants to be yet, we’ll figure that out
    soon tho!

    Halloween costumes can be used more than once a year, my daughter loves to play dress up so thats where they end up when halloween is over.

    im 17, so i dont have kids, but i was a little kid not long ago and i have a ton of little cousins who i take trick or treating. we always make ours. no offense, but i dont see the point in spending $40 on a costume that theyll wear for one night and then it goes in the costume bin when you can just make something for a few bucks. if you ask me, bought costumes are a rip off. plus we have a ton of fun making them.

    BQ: im not going as anything, maybe ill wear a mask, my four year old cousin is going as indiana jones, my three year old cousin is going as a princess, my 8 year old cousin is going as a hippie, and my two year old cousin is going as a cat. some of their friends are coming too, but i dont know what their wearing.

    I enjoy shopping for anything for Halloween. I want to make my son’s costumes because growing up my mom always made my costumes (until I got old enough to make my own) but it’s fun thinking about what he could be.

    Personally, while the dress is cute I can think of a lot of things I’d much rather spend $40 on than a Halloween costume that can only be used once. It’s a few hours on one night, and the kids and adults handing out candy alike could care less if it’s a fancy $40 costume or a $5 costume from the dollar store. If it seems ok to you, go for it. But I would not pay more than $20 at the very most for a pre-made Halloween costume for my child.

    Yes I love shopping for Halloween! It’s my favorite day of the year!

    No, $40 doesn’t seem like too much.
    Everyone says that you shouldn’t spend a lot on a costume for them to wear once.
    However, in my opinion, it is only once a year.
    Why not go all out?
    $40 a year isn’t a lot to ask..

    Your little girl’s costume is precious!

    40 is totally fine. Last year my son had a spider man outfit that costed along that line.

    I’m not sure what I am going to have him be this year yet.

    I would not spend $40 on a costume for my daughter, and her thrid birthday is tomorrow. For one, she won’t wear it much and $40 is a lot of money for clothes. I would not spend $40 on her for clothing, knowing she would out grow it in a few months, a year at best. The last time I spent $40 on clothing for myself was almost two years ago when I got a new winter coat, knowing it would last several years.

    If I were to do Halloween with my child(ren), it will be with things I can find around the house. (I find the commercial aspect of Halloween cheesy– Dressing kids in costumes so they can go around pilfering for artificial flavored candy junk.) This morning on the MOPS recycle table there was a pumpkin costume for a baby that I passed up. It didn’t seem necessary to me. (I did pick up a car seat "baby coat"/cover for my son who is due in November and a body suit coat for my daughter, a few reusable bags and some CDs.)

    If we do Halloween this year, we’ll decide in a month or so. It’s way too early to think about.
