A few Halloween related questions

First of all, do you think this is just too big for my daughter, or rather will be in 2 months for halloween?  

My mom made it for me but I was 10 months old by my first halloween.  She isn't really big (12 lbs 14 oz) but I'm thinking it will still work maybe?

Any clue where I can get a wig and tights for this?

And I just had to include the doll because my mom made that for me too :)

I think it looks fine. I would just get a little white babies hat and some red yarn and make the hat.

I dont think Halloween costumes have to fit perfectly, I am not sure where you live, but here trick or treat can either be hot or cold! so most people buy the costumes a little big in case you have to layer underneath it! Also the story behind it is another good reason not to worry about this size!

Good point.  I'm in California.  Last year my son was a dinosaur and even though the costume wasn't that warm I had to unzip it because he was so hot!  We were wearing t-shirts and shorts and still pretty warm.

also if you google what you are looking for and then click over to shop, and organize by price.... that may help, I find a lot of Halloween accessories that way!

It looks great!  So adorable.  That's so cool that you get to share your costume with her.  I agree about the white baby hat and you can even take a red ribbon to tie it around her chin or whatever you need to keep it on.
