A touch of Halloween from Sainsburys

The witching hour (OK day) is almost upon us, and it seems that Halloween is now a big event on every little boy or girls social calendar. Every child loves dressing up, and Halloween is one of those occasions where you can really go to town in terms of your outfit. My little boy Joe is no exception to this rule.

Over the past few years Joe has dressed up for different Halloween events. He was a ghost wearing a rather strange costume that I think resembled a giant condom(?), and last year he was a pumpkin. He chose both of these costumes himself, which I think is rather lovely. This year, he decided that he would like to be Count Dracula. He kept gravitating towards this sort of costume whenever we walked around the supermarket – he liked the mask and the cape, and the fact that this was a more grown-up costume, rather than the baby pumpkins and spooky ghosts he had gone for in the past.

Sainsburys have very kindly sent Joe the Count Dracula costume that he has had his eye on, and I have to say the quality is fabulous. The costume comprises striped trousers (with an elasticized waist that are easy to pull on/off) and a tabard style top that fastens with velcro around the back of the neck and the back. This  also comes with a detachable cape, which has a great stand up collar. The final touches to the costume are a rather brilliant mask, and a vampire pendant.

Joe couldn’t wait to try this costume for size. I’m sure you will agree that he looks great! This is a fantastic Halloween costume, great quality, very smart, and true to size (Joe is wearing aged 5-6). I think the £12 price point is quite good too. Joe absolutely loved wearing this and is now very excited about the Halloween disco that he will be attending on the 31st.

Sainsburys currently have a great range of Halloween costumes in store. You can view more of the range, and where to buy by clicking here.
