Some parents love making Halloween costumes the DIY way, but many of us don't have time to hand-stitch a couture unicorn-fairy-firefighter-monster costume. And it's nothing to be ashamed of, mama.
Today's news will make you feel so much better about ditching all your Pinterest-board aspirations and heading to Target for complete, ready-made Halloween costumes—which, let's be honest, are what children usually want anyway. Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, just did that very same thing, according to eyewitness accounts.
"She was with Charlotte and George looking at Halloween outfits but her bodyguard was kind of watching people with phones and telling them no pictures," shopper Kathy Whittaker told British tabloid The Mirror of what went down at the Sainsbury's supermarket in Norfolk on Thursday at around 11 am. "I didn't see what she actually bought. The lady that told me she was there had children with her and she said Duchess Kate was asking her children what they were going to be for Halloween. I think she bought some Halloween bits for her kids but I don't know what."
That's frustrating little information on exactly which costumes the royal kids will be wearing, but the selection at Sainsbury's is quite cute. We can totally see Charlotte rocking this cat outfit, which costs less than $12.
No matter what Kate bought there, she didn't spend much. All of the costumes at Sainsbury's are pretty inexpensive and just as adorable. We're happy to see the Duchess takes this relatively stress-free route for the holiday if that's what works for her family.
If you love making costumes, go for it, mama. But if you don't, we'll see you at Target (or Sainsbury's).
