How did that happen?  I’m not really sure how it happened here in my house, other then daddy is a comic book nerd.  Like a good parent, I said he needed to wait until he was older to read Deadpool.  Like a typical daddy, he went ahead a read it to him anyway, although he “modifies” certain words and phrases, since Deadpool is WAY not for kids. And now, my kid loves Deadpool.  It’s his very favorite.

It’s really hard to find anything about Deadpool in his size- t-shirts, costumes, really anything at all.  I’m not so very crafty or great at sewing, so that doesn’t help matters.  Since he already told me he wants to be Deadpool for Halloween this year, I have been looking for Halloween Costumes 2015. I knew it would be a tough one to find, and I was right.

Apparently, comfy enough to lounge in. (He wouldn’t take it off, he was watching TV.)


Luckily for me, I found a Deadpool costume at Wholesale Costume Club, even if it was in an adult only size.  There are no kid sized ones anywhere, and trust me, I’ve looked.  I’m not skilled enough to make him one, but I sure can hem up his sleeves and pant legs, and he will be good to go.  Bonus?  He can wear it again in a few years if he wants to, so that’s pretty cool.

He loves his Deadpool costume, and since we are also having a Deadpool themed birthday party for him this year, he will already get quite a bit of use out of it.  My son loves costumes, and we let him wear them as often as he wants, as long as it’s not too hot.

You can like and follow Wholesale Costume Club on Facebook to see what’s new and for deals.

I know it’s early for Halloween, but it’s never too early to start looking when you know what they want is going to be difficult to find.  Plus, dress up is always in fashion  🙂
