I have a set of 3-year-old boy/girl twins. Outside of the obvious benefit to this – like the fact that they have a built in playmate in one another – I’ve also found that coming up with Halloween costume ideas for the two of them can be ridiculously fun.
Given that they’re only three, I’ve barely scratched the surface when it comes to twin Halloween costumes that I can put together.
[It should be noted that I have no clue how long they’re going to let me dress them up as a duo. I would imagine that my reign of “cutesy pootsey” twin costumes is coming to a close. Needless to say, I plan on riding this wave for as long as possible.]
Last year my twins celebrated their birthday Disney Junior style complete with Mickey and Minnie Mouse themed American Greetings party supplies purchased from Walmart.
So, this year for Halloween it only made sense that we keep that theme going and find a Mickey Mouse Costume and a Minnie Mouse costume for my twins to wear together.
My little ones absolutely love Disney Junior and their cast of characters. My baby girl is quite fond of Minnie Mouse in particular. With her squeaky voice, pink polka-dots, and cutesy crinoline, Minnie is the epitome of all things girly – which ultimately appeals to my pink toenail wearing, doll baby toting little girl. Needless to say, my daughter was super excited to become her favorite character this year.
The three of us headed over to our favorite big box retailer: Walmart. I knew that Disney #JuniorCelebrates Halloween every year in a grand fashion and that Walmart would be the perfect place for me to find a Minnie Mouse costume for my little girl.
I definitely wasn’t disappointed as Walmart had an in-store display of Doc McStuffins (another one of my little girl’s favorites) and Minnie Mouse Costumes right up front. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were easy to locate among the other Halloween costumes.
While we were at Walmart we also picked up some red pants, a black shirt, two large white buttons, and an extra set of ears. This was to become my son’s Mickey Mouse costume.
Before heading for checkout the kids and I decided to grab a toy. Walmart had tons of Disney themed toys to choose from. We decided on Minnie Mouse Beach Bow-tique – an adorable little rubber Minnie Mouse toy that came complete with a swimsuit, flip-flops, and Minnie’s trademark polka-dotted hair bow.
I wanted to do it up big this year and take my Disney clad duo somewhere awesome to celebrate this “spooktacular” holiday. Atlanta has tons of amazing events during the month of October for Halloween. I decided on the Atlanta Botanical Gardens where we could have a look at their annual Scarecrows in the Garden.
Schools and organizations from all over Metro Atlanta create and donate some amazing scarecrows to the Botanical Gardens every year. I knew that seeing Mickey and Minnie running around among the scarecrows was going to make for some seriously epic cuteness. Boy was I not disappointed.
While at the Gardens we couldn’t cross a bridge or walk down a path without hearing an “Awww” or “How cute!” from people passing by. This momma has done well this Halloween; and we haven’t even made it to the 31st yet!
