I love to encourage my children to have dramatic play where they can pretend to be a super hero or a princess. We have lots of costumes. I usually buy them at consignment stores when they put out their costumes for Halloween. There is a pretty good selection and the prices are drastically cheaper than if I bought them new so I can pick up a couple of costumes for each child.
That being said, I also encourage my children to use their imagination. So what if we have a complete wizard costume? Wouldn't those pieces look even better if they were combined with other cool costumes...or sports equipment?
Here is Nicholas' latest costume creation...
* soccer shin guards
* water shoes
* Bibleman cape
* wizard hat
* archery elbow guards
* bow and arrow set
* gloves from toy tool bench
I just love this kid's creativity!
