    Glad you shared this so far in advance, with so many family/kid-oriented activities coming up during October leading up to Halloween – supplies are plentiful right now, and the pressure isn’t on yet to pull a costume together at the last minute. We should see some awesome things this year, that Instagram kids costume is so cute!
