Plan Ahead- Halloween

For those of you who are longtime Bombshell Beauty followers, you know that I'm a firm believer in planning ahead for specific events. I think it's a good rule of thumb to buy certain clothes before you need them. Because it's not always easy to rush out the day of a big date or a funeral or a holiday and find the perfect outfit. Which is why it's not even September and I'm talking to you about Halloween costumes.

Plus size Halloween costumes can be hard to come by. But they are out there...I promise! Look - plus size Halloween costume!


Don't worry, I won't sting you.


I might wiggle my antennae at you, though.


I'm flying! Or buzzing? Whatever honey bees do.

When Minnesota-based HalloweenCostumes.com contacted me a few weeks ago to see if I'd be interested in reviewing one of their plus size costumes, I made a bee-line (ha) for this Honey Bee Costume. So cute! Plus, I think it would be hilarious for Dan to dress as a flower. We'll see if he agrees.

In addition to mass-market costumes like the one I chose, HalloweenCostumes.com carries a selection of exclusive plus size costumes that can only be found on their site. With over 180 different costumes ranging in sizes 1X-3X, and at a variety of prices, I think you'll find your own Honey Bee costume. Something that makes you look forward to heading out this Halloween.

To make sure your costume fits as expected, be sure to double check your measurements against the sizing charts for each outfit. And don't forget to check the hemline...Halloween costumes (especially the "sexy variety) are notoriously short. As point of reference, I typically wear a size 18 and am 6' tall. I ordered this costume in a size 3X/4X and it's quite roomy. I'll bet I could have sized down and it would have fit perfectly. Check out HalloweenCostume.com's return policy here. (Which highlights another good reason to order early, ahem.)

I'll remind you again when it gets closer to Halloween, but take my advice and start looking now. You don't want to wait to the last second and end up going to the big Halloween party as a Golf Pro (something I did once...it was pretty decent as far as last minute/free costumes go. But not much fun!).

*HalloweenCostumes.com provided this adorable costume to me at no charge. This does not influence my opinion of them or their offerings.

    Really. I never can decide. I need suggestions or I'll just keep procastinating. Your bee is so cute!
