I call it "Cute Things I Found on the Internet: A Series (If I Feel Like Doing It Again)."
I'm not real big on babies, but I love BABIES IN COSTUMES. I think that enjoyment probably stems from the same part of my brain that also delights in seeing people dress up their pets. (I mean, babies are kind of like pets, right? No? This is why I should not ever reproduce.)
I was browsing around the Target site to see their Halloween costumes for pets (because I may or may not be needing something new for my cat) and then there were babies in costumes and I giggled and now I'm posting some here because: babies! in costumes!
I don't know what it is about the sheer awesomeness of living things who are completely helpless to one's desire to dress them up as whatever one finds to be cute or clever. Babies. Pets. Boyfriends. Yet when looking at people's Halloween pictures, usually their living accessories are more interesting than the person in question. Babies are probably the easiest to dress up (again, I've never tried to dress a baby, so I can't actually verify the accuracy of that statement) because they have no clue what is going on. It's just another ridiculous outfit to them. And dammit, look how happy these babies are to be in costume. I suspect they enjoy it more than my cat does.
IT'S A MINI YODA!
This one is my favorite. LOOK AT IT.
One year, I saw a costume set where there was a gorilla suit for the parent and the banana for the baby.
That one still wins as my favorite. I wish I had a picture. Or that I wasn't too lazy to Google for it.
Apparently babies dressed as food is the Thing this year.
Whatever, this kid is just cute.
So. There's that. I'm actually quite excited for Halloween this year, assuming I can find my wig from two years ago. I really don't want to spend any money this year because I spent all the money last year assembling various pieces then at the last minute went as something else because I like theme-ing with my friends.
Anyway. I really just wanted an excuse to post the picture of the baby in the pea pod and so I made a whole post around it that doesn't make any sense because I should really be sleeping right now but that's never stopped me before from posting something completely nonsensical. (See: yesterday. and the day before. and possibly last Tuesday. Hell, pick a day. This blog rarely makes much sense. AND THAT IS WHY WE ALL LOVE IT SO MUCH.)
If you have babies or pets and you dress them up, please share pictures with me. I will possibly clap with glee like a complete dork.
Oooh, I really want to do a blog contest now where people have to dress up their pets (or babies, if you have one lying around) and then we all pick the best one. Is anyone interested in
Ok, for real. I'm going to bed now. Totally leaving the pet/baby/baby pet costume challenge on the table as a viable option. Comment if you want to play. If I get enough people, it's totally on... like... a thing that is on. Metaphors are not my strong suit at this hour.*
