Whatever it is, make sure it’s in the right size
If you’re planning on getting a pirate costume for Halloween, the most important thing to keep in mind is that it should fit your kid just right, not too tight and not too loose. This goes with any other Halloween costume you may have in mind. Always get the costume in the right size, always.
Do not overdo it
You may get overexcited when dressing up as a pirate that you may put on more than what is necessary on your kid.
