A Five Nights At Freddy's Halloween Costume

So.

My daughter used to have rather cute costumes.








But then she told me, "I want to be the marionette from Five Nights At Freddy's" and I was like:





I explained that I didn't think you could buy a costume like that and asked if she wanted to be Princess Elizabeth instead, Henry VIII's daughter, because she was brave and fierce and had her mother Anne Boleyn's spunk.

She shook her head firmly. "I've been a princess enough. I want to be the marionette." I shouldn't be surprised. She had a Five Nights At Freddy's birthday party after all.

I told her I'd check on Etsy and sure enough, someone was making a marionette costume. Etsy has saved me so many times. I do not sew. I do not knit. The talent on Etsy always amazes me.




Yup. It IS creepy. You're correct. But she loves it.

"And on Halloween I'll make long fingers because the marionette has long fingers."

"If you say so," I answered, wrinkling my nose and picturing her like this:



If your kid also wants to be creepy, you can find the marionette costume here and the mask here. I like to support small businesses. (A note: I did not get any of the items compensated. I paid.)



I just have to get used to her strange costume choices. She's getting older. Her opinions are changing.





(She was all "Jump scare!" because in the game things are popping at you. No thanks. Too scary for me. But my nine-year-old loves it.)





So do you go for creepy costumes?

  3. I don't celebrate the Halloween in any form, but I like to see kids making memories with their parents. I'm sure your children will remember this for a long time.

  4. My daughter started changing from cute costumes to darker ones too. Last year she was Wednesday Addams. This year, she is going to be the doll from Coraline, with button eyes.

  42. I never thought of looking to buy a Halloween costume at Etsy. Although I'm not surprised because they have so many talented sellers there! BTW, your daughter is so beautiful.. My oldest daughter always wanted girly costumes while my younger one preferred the scarier ones.

  43. That really is a creepy costume and love the GIF that would have been my reaction to hahaha.

  44. OMG I LOVE THAT COSTUME! I must say, your daughter has a good sense for the creepy haha
    I always adored haloween and even tho it's not a big thing here, when I was younger all the kids form my village went around trigk or treating and we ALWAYS had a theme and made our own costumes.

  45. Doggone those kids of ours getting free will and all... She might have picked a creepy costume, but it's awfully cool at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  46. These are the best costumes ever!!!! Can I just say that Queen Elizabeth was a hero!

    ReplyDelete
  47. So cool that she's totally committed to her costume! Those are always the best, most memorable ones. My son doesn't understand halloween quite yet, but we're getting there.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Your daughter is so cuteee! Hehe

  54. I must say that I am not in Halloween but your little one is very cute in her costume. :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I LOVE it! Rock on, little one! She's going to be such a boss when she gets older. I love that the can articulate what her heart desires and wants to stand out. Awesome. I was way too prissy for that.

    ReplyDelete
  56. This is too funny. My kids keep talking about this Five Nights of Freddys thing and I have no clue what they are talking about. I'll have to check out what all the fuss is about. BTW - I actually think the costume is cool.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I admire you for letting her make her own choices even though you don't like them. Parenting done right.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I can't imagine anyone else will be dressed in the same costume as your daughter. She makes interesting choices.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  60. That costume is amazing and so creepy but also kinds cute?! I mean how does that work lol.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Honestly we don't celebrate Halloween in my home.
    We believe the history behind the holiday is worth considering for our littles and even at their age we've explain it to them.
    But this costume is very unique!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Those are all adorable costumes. Wish I had a youngster still in the home. Have fun at Halloween.

    ReplyDelete
  63. This costume is awesome, and I'm glad etsy was able to deliver for your daughter! I love the cute costumes too, but the spookiness of Halloween makes me a fan of the scary costumes as well.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Fans of scary costumes unite! I love that your daughter is choosing to express herself by choosing a costume to HER liking. After all, dressing up is what Halloween is all about. Happy Halloween!

    ReplyDelete
  65. This is a great marionette costume. Five Nights at Freddy's is such a popular game right now. I wonder how many Pennywise clowns we will see this Halloween.

    ReplyDelete
  66. One of my relatives has a daughter about her age who is obsessed with Five Nights at Freddys. It seems to be pretty popular.

    ReplyDelete
  67. She definitely had some super cute costumes in years past! The marionette costume is pretty cool though. It's good she knew just what she wanted to be - my kids can't make up their minds!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love her costume. I completely understand the creepy costume thing. My 9 year old is going to be Georgie from It for Halloween.

    ReplyDelete
  69. We don't do creepy Halloween costumes but I do love creativity. We don't have a rule, the kids just haven't picked anything creepy.

    ReplyDelete
  70. oh my! she is so cute! now i wish we have haloween in thailand when i was growing up as i didnt get the chance to dress like this! so creative and cool! happy halloween!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm not familiar with Five Nights at Freddy's. I personally prefer cute and friendly costumes over scary ones.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love all the different outfits for Halloween. She is so precious and intelligent. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  73. My kids are big five nights at Freddy's fans; I'll have to show them these ideas for inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I totally love this costume! I'd prefer this to princess costumes any day, to be honest & I'm sure she'd look awesome in both!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. The costumes have undergone a sea change over time. But if she likes them and is happy, than that is all part of the fun.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I like that your daughter is showing her independence and unique personality in her costume choices. My kids are quite grown so I am not sure if they will still be donning Halloween costumes or would just prefer to stay home to hand out candy to the little trick or treaters.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love the blue fairy costume! It's so cute and adorable. I think my niece will look good on it too.

    ReplyDelete
  78. That League of their Own costume is so cute! Way to go mom!

    ReplyDelete
  79. What a great costume idea! My daughter has played Five Nights of Freddy's a couple of times, and saw some of their costumes in the Halloween Spirit store. I like your version better.

    ReplyDelete
  80. What adorable costume ideas. I especially like the League of Their Own baseball costume. Very cute!

    ReplyDelete
  81. i love her personality! the costume is awesome. creep yes, but still amazing! i also really like that you're letting her explore her developing personality too. awesome job.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love that you are just rolling with her choices and not trying to force her to be a pretty princess or something like that!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Such a great costume. Not all girls just want to be princesses!!

  84. Lol I love the creepy outfit and it looks great on her. This would be something my tween grand daughters would love for Halloween. They don't like frilly and cute at their ages.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I don't like creepy costumes. I honestly don't go out on the Halloween eve because some people are on the hunt to scare people here. But your daughter is still adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I'm so happy I don't know the context. I don't like scary things, but seeing only the pictures, the costume and the doll don't look so scary. I remember I used to love all those stuff when I was a kid.

    ReplyDelete
  87. It's great that you are able to make a costume for your daughter for Halloween. Last weekend, my family went to the farm to pick out a pumpkin and I am still looking for a theme to carve the jack o'lantern.
