Costume week: Giraffe Explosion

Ok, let's start this thing off right, keeping the focus on the most adorable of the Bowden crew- This little monkey. I mean...giraffe:


It's too much, right?

In case you're not following....

It's a baby giraffe. Riding a BABY GIRAFFE. (!!!)

My heart can barely take it.


When I saw this costume on the rack at Once Upon a Child, I had. to. have. it. See, we brought our little animal home from the hospital in a giraffe onesie, and her giraffe rocker is one of my favorite parts of her room, so the giraffe has slowly become Piper's unofficial "spirit animal" (whether she knows it or not). But as awesome as the costume was, (and I think we can all agree that it is indeed, awesome.) It wasn't a perfect fit for Miss P. She's a lanky thing (see? baby giraffe!) and her limbs were just a bit too long for the plush coverall (note her adorable piggies sticking out of the "hooves"). But we had already gone to all the trouble of wiggling her in to try it on, so I figured she at least deserved to take it for a test run.

 She didn't stop with the "is there something on my head?" business the entire time she wore the suit. Yes, there is something on your head. And it's adorable.


So this one wasn't the winner, but trust me when I tell you, that her official costume(s) (yes, I said "s"....wait for it them) will not disappoint.

We'll be back tomorrow. With more awesomeness.

    1. I bet you have like 5 kids in a giraffe costume. How do you not make each child wear all of the previous kids costumes? Poor Sophia has to dress up for a month just to get through all the options!
