Kids Halloween Costumes and Other Costumes for Kids

Looking for kids halloween costumes and/or other costumes for kids?

If your child is anything like my son Cameron, he or she absolutely loves them!

For him, it's usually anything with a cape. Even at almost 17, he is still crazy about capes! Update: Now even at almost 20 years old, he still has the same cape in the picture and still loves it. :)

Costumes have come a long way

Costumes for kids have come a long way. There are so many available now, so many to pick from.

I know some kids with Asperger's Syndrome want to wear costumes with tails, or even just the tail (did you see Zev on The Amazing Race?).

With my Cameron, it was always a cape whether he was wearing a costume or not. :o)

Although whenever we bought a kids Halloween costume for Cameron, he wore the entire thing night and day until it was no longer wearable!

Some of our Asperger's kids want costumes for kids that have special ears, others want swords (that was one of Cameron's favorites, still is actually, cringe...), there are so many options with kids halloween costumes these days that you should be able to find whatever it is that your child is craving.

And when looking for costumes for kids, you don't even have to wait for Halloween any longer, now they're available year round!

Check out these excellent halloween costumers (and other costumes) from Amazon!

When you can get them year-round who needs to wait for halloween?

Kids halloween costumes and other costumes for kids will bring out the imagination in your child

I remember how much fun it was to have Cameron running around the house with his capes, he was so happy doing his karate kicks in the air, and the fact that he was participating in imagination play was incredible.

And it wasn't just Halloween, it was throughout the year.

He'd want to wear them to school, no honey sorry, so first thing when he got home, on went the costume.

He wanted to wear them to bed (that was kind of a tough one because of the fire retardant issue). Those times that I did give in to that begged for and begged for request, nothing with strings, such as capes, was ever allowed in bed.

He wore them to the store. He wore them to restaurants. It didn't matter where we went, he wore his costume, and if it wasn't his costume, it was at least his cape.

And I didn't mind. If someone gave us a strange look I just looked right back at them, then looked at my son and smiled.

He was a Power Ranger for many years but there had to be a cape added. He was a ninja for many years, again there had to be a cape added. Then it was anything with a sword but again there always had to be a cape. No matter what costume he was wearing, no matter the time of year, he always had to have a cape.

And then, even when he didn't have a costume on, he still had to have a cape. :o)

And I was happy to indulge him because the joy he got out of it was incredible. :o)

Even today, as the pictures show above, he's still into capes.

The other day my daughter and I were sitting in the living room and Cameron shouted from his bedroom "Hey, I found my Santa hat!".

I told my daughter, "Watch, he's going to come out with his Santa hat and his cape", and sure enough here he comes down the hall with his Santa hat on and his cape wrapped around him, announcing that he was Santa Capeman Man!

My daughter was like "No Way!" when he left the room... She was very surprised that I had called that before it happened. Even as I sit here writing this I am grinning ear to ear, it was so funny and so cute (even though yes he's 17), I wish so much that I had had my camera at the ready!

Spark your child's imagination and let them wear costumes ... I guarantee you that your child won't be the only one with wonderful memories!

Oh, and be sure to have your camera at the ready!

Books that I'm currently reading

I'm so tickled that authors have been contacting me and asking me to review their new books for them!

For as much time as I spend researching Asperger's Syndrome this website should have thousands of pages but because my son has Asperger's Syndrome I find that the things I want to work on very often are not the things that I have to work on so I'm still not able to spend as much time on it as I'd like to.

As he heads into adulthood (he turned 18 on Dec 13 and yes I need to update some things at my website such as my home page that says he's 17) I'm finding that I have even less time on my hands as I spend more time trying to master the puzzle of how to help him transition into "life after high school".

That's where Autism Tomorrow: The Complete Guide To Help Your Child Thrive In The Real World comes in. It's a guide to help your kids after high school. You'll find parts of the book will be applicable and some won't depending on your child's current age. Although the title implies "Autism after high school" there is still quite a bit in there about what to do before your child hits "real life". But overall a helpful book.

Please contact me if you'd like to send a copy of your book to me for review. I would absolutely love it!

Fiction, Non-fiction, Auto-Biographies, Instructional books, etc. I'm interested in them all. :) And if you autograph it that would be SUPER cool! ;)
