  1. Thanks for the baby costume ideas. Making a little hedgehog outfit for my baby’s first Halloween. So excited!

  2. This is great! Been looking for pet costume ideas and this article just gave me a bunch. Thinking of dressing my dog as a hot dog. Cheers, Jaye!

  3. For anyone doing a Historical Figures costume, go as Hypatia! First female mathematician and a total badass. Not enough people represent her.
