In the United States, Halloween is among the most celebrated holidays.
Babies and adults can participate in the celebration. This includes going on a trick or treat walk around the neighborhood. There is eating as many candies as your stomach can hold, and wearing “funtastic” costumes.
For babies, animal inspired costumes are the best because of their uber cute appearance and the elephant costume for baby is one of the best choices in the market today.
Emphasis must be made that in the celebration of modern-day Halloween, the elephant does not have a special significance.
The symbols of Halloween include spooky things like jack o’ lanterns, bats, spiders, witches and warlocks.
Elephants are anything but spooky where parents and children are concerned.
Instead, adults and children alike love baby elephant costumes for Halloween because of their cute appearance.
Elephants, known as gentle giants on land, are among the largest extant land animals that can reach a 4 meter height and 7,000 kilogram weight.
The gray animals’ distinctive physical characteristics including a long trunk that can be swished about in the air, large ear flaps that can be flapped back and forth, and round bodies atop pillar-like legs appeal to adults and kids alike.
Add in their gentle nature and elephants are among the well-loved animals, both in the wild and in zoos.
It’s no wonder then that many of the beloved characters among children are inspired by elephants, such as Horton Hears a Who, Tantor (Tarzan), and Hathi (The Jungle Book).
Parents who want to dress up their babies, toddlers and pre-school kids in elephant-inspired costumes, either because of their cute physical appearance or as homage to the gray gentle giants, will find the Underwraps’ baby elephant costume to be satisfactory for their needs.
Product Description of the Elephant Costume For Baby
The Underwraps Baby’s Elephant Belly-Babies costume comes in two color choices. Pink and dark gray. They come in three sizes which are medium, large and extra large.
It is made from 100% polyester, a material known for its desirable qualities. It has Western pockets, contrast trim, and Wrangler riser label.
What’s to Love About It
The Underwraps Baby’s Elephant Belly Babies costume is among the most popular elephant costumes for babies because of the numerous things to love about it.
- 100% polyester
While many may scoff at the use of synthetic fabrics when natural fabrics like cotton are available, the benefits of polyester cannot be dismissed either.
Polyester fabric is extremely stable, strong and durable. Because of its high resistance against most chemicals and stain sources, wrinkles and creases, and stretching and shrinking caused by several washings, as well as mildew and abrasion.
For these reasons, polyester is a highly preferred fabric for clothes including costumes, high couture, and ordinary clothing items.
Parents prefer Halloween costumes made with polyester because of its high stain resistance.
Why Polyester is Better Than Cotton For Young Children
In most cases babies and toddlers will stain their Halloween costumes, no thanks to the fact that their diapers can quickly become filled with pee and poop.
Diaper leaks can be an issue with cotton clothing as cotton can easily absorb the stains but this is not the case with polyester.
Halloween costumes in polyester fabric will not require ironing because of its high resistance against wrinkles and creases.
How To Clean The Elephant Costume
Just wash the elephant costume after its arrival from the store, let it air dry and then wear in your baby.
Polyester is also easy to wash. Be sure to use lukewarm water and mild detergent, wash the costume by hand, and let it air dry.
Some parents have complained that putting it in the dryer didn’t work too well.
Even after several washings a toddler may want to wear the elephant costume even after Halloween is over. The costume will hold its shape and structure.
Aside from these practical concerns, both the kids and adults like the Underwraps Baby’s Elephant Belly Babies costume because of its texture.
When worn, the costume feels like a soft blanket, an observation that even parents will make when touching the costume.
Additional Features To Consider
- True to its inspiration
The Underwraps Baby’s Elephant Belly Babies costume is true to its inspiration in terms of its overall design.
Everybody will immediately conclude that the wearer is in an elephant costume. Due to its cute design, the adults will express their admiration for your baby’s beautiful appearance.
The elephant inspired Halloween costume has large flap ears that hang down almost to the shoulders. Sadly, it cannot be flapped like real elephant ears but for children it does not really matter.
These large flap ears have a darker coloration on the front facing the observers than the rest of the costume. This makes it a standout feature.
The costume for kids also has the characteristic trunk hanging just under the child’s chin. There are also two soft tusks framing the trunk, one on each side.
The tusks are obviously not hard and pointed so there’s no hazard to the wearer. The trunk curves upward at its end which gives the illusion of movement.
The Ears and Feet
Even the costume’s feet aspect remains true to the elephant inspiration. The five toenails, in a white material, on each hoof can easily be distinguished from the pink or gray hooves.
From the large flap ears, trunk, tusks, round body, large hooves, and white toenails, the Underwraps Baby’s Elephant Belly Babies costume is as cute as a baby elephant.
The elephant inspired costume comes in two gender sensitive colors. Pink for girls and dark gray for boys.
In the case of progressive parents the traditional color assignments can also be challenged such as dark gray for both boys and girls.
Some parents have chose to pin the ears up instead of letting them lay down.
What’s Not to Love About This Elephant Costume For Baby and Toddler?
The Underwraps Baby’s Elephant Belly Babies costume does not come with a long sleeved shirt and pants. Still, parents will want to use their kids’ own clothes to pair with the costume so this is just a minor issue.
This is a very soft feeling costume which kids love.
Parents love it mostly because it’s just so cute!
You may have to tweak a few things to make it perfect. Otherwise it’s good to go right out of the box.
In conclusion, infant elephant Halloween costumes are a dime a dozen.
