Mica Tries Out a Captain America Costume

Mica has been talking about Halloween since Easter was over. He wanted to be Thomas Jefferson, then changed his mind to Captain America after watching a Captain America movie. He has very diverse taste. 

My boys always get good use out of their costumes. Our library has a few superhero events, and so did the Y when we belonged to that. 

Kids come over to play, and end up dressing up as something from the big bin we have a costumes.

Mica can see through the eye holes really well. With a lot of costumes there's a problem with kids being able to see. We will have to pin his hair back in places, since it's longer.

There are a few Captain America costumes to choose from at Costume SuperCenter. Mica was set on this one. It was only $12.99, which is a great price for a costume! The boy is almost out of children sized costumes. He's so tall. The large costume we got fits him perfectly!

It comes in sizes:
  • Small (fits 4-6)
  • Medium (fits 8-10)
  • Large (fits 12-14) 
Considering that my kids are both tall I do wish that all costume places sold X-Large for the length. Mica just turned 10, so he'll be into Halloween for another year. They do have a teen section, but it's not as diverse as the children's section.

The shield does come separately.
The belt and shoulder straps look pretty realistic. I love the fake stitching they have on them. There's visual texture on everything to.

Like Costume SuperCenter on Facebook. They have deals all the time! Really the prices on their site are great. I noticed that they had a Labor Day discount code on their Facebook page.

Isaak and I are still in limbo with what we want to be. I know I'll go back to Costume SuperCenter as soon as we decide. Isaak wants to be something scary. He says that being scary is what Halloween is about. I like to be clever with my costumes. Since I work at an art school, I feel like I must out top everyone. I feel the pressure. If you have any good ideas, send them my way. In the past I've made my own costumes. I've been the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo with a uni brow, the artist Vincent Van Gogh with my ear all wrapped up, the other Coraline with button eyes, and a Geisha with a plate of rice crispy sushi for people to eat. I have other ideas, but I'm tired of spending a lot of time making the costumes, and may just buy one this year.

Do you get into Halloween? If so, what do you plan on being?

He really pulls off the costume well! Mariah is going to be a Star Wars character. I don't know which one. Allison is still undecided, but she usually waits until last minute to figure it out.

What a great costume and super photos. I was just talking to my son about how he was Batman for about 5 years, he loved the costume.

My Grandson thinks he is a super hero, so he would like Captain America!

He's totally rockin' it in that costume. I wish my kids were still young enough to dress up for Halloween and go trick-or-treating.
