Madeline's Halloween Outfit

I know it's only mid September but I'm starting to put Madeline's holloween costume together - mainly because everything I want to get her has to be made in America so it needs time to get here.  This isn't strictly her first halloween - she was here for the last one but she was so tiny that it passed very uneventfully.

New Zealand doesn't traditionally celebrate halloween but it seems to be growing in enthusiasim every year.  I don't think that I'll ever be comfortable letting Maddy go door to door asking for candy but I do want her to experience and be part of everything so off to Nana and Grandads we will go instead.  I do look forward to hosting a kids halloween party when she gets older but that's years away yet!

Instead of an actual costume this year I thought I would dress her in a halloween outfit (she didn't handle the Easter Bunny costume too well that we put her in at Easter).  Here is what I've selected so far...

Jack-O-Lantern Pinafore from Pocket Full Of Posies

The great thing about this pinafore is that is reverses to a non-holiday print so she will be able to wear it over summer too.

Cupcake Ghost Hair Bow from Lilly Bella Bows

Pumpkin Spice Shoes from Kathy Allen

Trick or Treating Bag from Lula Grace Designs
  She'll look SO cute!  What costumes (or outfits) have you got planned for halloween this year?
