The boys and I were asked by our friends Cassidy and Riley to share some Mom + Me Halloween costume ideas in collaboration with Pottery Barn Kids because really is there anything cuter than a coordinating family costume concept for Halloween?
I mean, as parents we obviously can't participate in the trick-or-treating, so why not be one of the fun parents and dress up with your little one. After four years of coordinating costumes (super heroes, pumpkins, Curious George characters, Mickey Mouse and friends), I would consider us to be almost pros at family-coordinating Halloween costumes by now, but I think this year might just take the cake since it's not only a kid concept, but something adults can totally get as well.
Mother of Dragons and Dragon Entourage...
So in all honesty, when Cassidy told me what she wanted me to be, my first thought was "oh cute" a mom and baby dragons. My mind did not immediately go to the Emmy-winning television show Game of Thrones (gasp! I know...let's blame it on the sleepless nights or mommy brain or something like that). And then, I realized that I was Khaleesi with my own little entourage of dragons and I decided it was the coolest "mommy" costume for the moment because it's relevant for the adults, but a concept kids love as well for an entirely different reason.
If you can't tell from the images, Holden LOVES his dragon costume. Since this photoshoot Holden has basically lived in it, wearing it the grocery store, the playground, museums...everywhere....despite the heat wave we have been experiencing in Southern California. He even won a costume contest with it! And it's not even Halloween yet.
