Making that little baby-sized guy of yours look like his daddy is another fun infant costume idea I wanted to share.
I was cruising through some of my friends pictures and I saw this cute image of a baby dressed up like his Harley-riding dad and I thought it was a great idea. Really any dad or mom with a fun hobby, cool job or other with interest would work in a miniature version.
Just think of it as your own little Austin Powers mini-me. If dad is a cop, let baby be one for Halloween, too. If mom is a pro-mechanic, let the baby wear a pair of coveralls and some"oil" makeup.
Think of all the fun you'll have if you go as a pair! Another friend of mine was a ballet dancer and for her new daughter's first Halloween, they both went as ballerinas and it was a precious way for them to share the holiday together. Plus, it made for some really excellent photo opportunities. New moms and dads who go with this idea may even want to book a mini Halloween shoot to have some nice photos as a keepsake.
Once the Halloween happenings are all over, you can sit down and enjoy a little quiet time with you wee one, and depending on her age, she may have learned a little bit more about who here parents are and you will have learned about who she is. If she's still too little for that, well, there's time. Halloween is just the beginning of a lifetime of memories for you and your child. If you love the idea of letting them emulate you for fun for a holiday, then this is a great way to go about it.
