The Part of the Blog Where I Dress My Kid Up

So I don't think it's any secret that we're Yo Gabbaholics over here.

The boy, he loves him some Yo Gabba Gabba. Multiple times a day, he will bring me the TV remote or will take it upon himself to push the buttons in hopes to find his favorite show. He loves the Gabbaland creatures, he loves the music and dancing, he loves DJ Lance Rock. I get the biggest smiles out of him when we do our dancey-dances in the middle of the living room floor.

Because of my son's love affair with all things Gabba, I have committed to making him a DJ Lance Rock costume for Halloween this year. I have already stalked Pinterest for costume ideas and have even started putting together a pattern for the thing.

And then I found And wouldn't you know, nestled nicely between other cartoon character costumes, I found an already-made, super cute DJ Lance Rock costume. It beckoned to me, "Don't spend all your time and money making a costume, just order me instead."

So I did. I ordered the costume. Within days, it arrived at my front door, only to immediately find itself on my kid. And, oh my gosh, the cuteness. I cannot get over it.

I am now a big fan of They have a huge variety of costumes for both kids and adults, the pricing is pretty decent (you know, for a costume most people will wear only once. This costume? We're wearing it every day), and the ordering process is a breeze. Plus, shipping was super fast. And that's pretty important when you are beyond excited about dressing your kid up in ridiculous costumes.

The costume is a 4 piece set which includes a shirt, pants, the fuzzy hat, and a pair of black frames. The shirt is way too easy to put of my squirmy toddler as it completely opens in the back and closes with velcro. The pants have an elastic waistband which made it a snap to put on my kid. The hat and glasses? Well, you try getting a 15 month old to wear them. But they are hilariously adorable.

My only complaint is a reflection on me, not the company. I committed the most common mom crime. I ordered the costume a size too big. You know, because I wanted it to last. Ha. I sound more and more like my own mother every day. I ordered a 3T-4T, knowing full well that Cohen barely fits into a 2T right now. So the costume is big on him, but he doesn't seem to mind. And as a bonus, I'm pretty sure he'll be wearing it next year and the year after that as well. I will say that the website does have a very easy to understand sizing chart. I'm just a mom and couldn't help myself from getting the bigger size.

I mean, how adorable is this? So if you are out and about the next few years and see a very small and very white version of the famous DJ, you don't have to worry if you're seeing things. That's just my kid. Rocking his costume.
