Sharing our Halloween costume reveal: The Princess Bride Costumes complete with Wesley costume details, Buttercup costume details, and our own little rodent of unusual size costume details- and how you can recreate this Princess Bride couple costume too!

We had a really fun year with several major publications and blogs asking to use pictures of our Halloween costumes in round-up posts. It’s so flattering! It always makes me happy to hear others find something we do interesting- and I love that we’ve become someone people watch for couple’s costume ideas- what an honor!

We’ve graduated for the time being to family themed costumes, and plan to do them as long as our kids allow! I know it may be only a few years, but I’m basking in it while I can! Also, I also have an unwritten rule that under two means a baby should be some kind of animal. I know everything is cute on a baby/toddler, but I can’t handle baby animal costumes for some reason. I secretly have dreams to make a crawling child into a turtle someday. Our little guy never crawled and only scooted, plus he pulled out walking last week so those dreams died long ago. It’s just something I’ll hold onto and if we get another child, I’ll see what I can do!

So based off animal costumes I went to work last year after brainstorming a lot of ideas when I needed something 3 weeks postpartum last year, and came up with a list of ideas that we just may be doing for the next several years. This was the one Jacob was most excited about, and after our lovely and talented friend Lydia of Photography-Hill agreed to do photos in costume, I have to agree that I’m pretty happy with our family costume. And maybe best of all, they come from easy-to-find items mostly from Amazon, and a few things lying around the house if you ever want to duplicate.

And feel the need to kick off this series of images with- “Rodents of Unusual Size, I don’t think they exist!”

We couldn’t get Princess Bride Costumes off the brain once we realized how fun it would be to shake it up with a baby. It’s hard to beat a rodent of unusual size that is this cute!

Plus a Buttercup costume and a Wesley costume were just too fun to pull together. We found these items easily online, and I was thrilled with the Princess Bride costumes results!

  11. His boot laces need to go in the BACK. The example photos online of these cheap boot tops are incorrect – they need spun 180. Other than that, you guys look great as far as “affordable” costumes go. Nice idea for the ROUS!
