I have a 16 month old DD and we have been invited to a couple of Halloween parties one is from her playgroup.
I wanted to dress DD as a zombie type princess, messy hair fake blood on dress, get her to eat some berries as she's a messy eater, and she loves puttin on make up so give her a make up sponge and some dark make up and go wild. I already have everything required to do this pretty much, would just need to get a bottle of fake blood to put on the dress.
Thought so, maybe I'll wait a few more years before I get the game blood out then哈哈。
你妈妈是对的。被打扮成你的describe is only for the entertainment of you /the adults, at 16 months she will have no clue how she looks or what she is supposed to be dressed up

Yes, best to leave it until a time when she can decide for herself. She's only 16 months so it's really not appropriate and other babies might not want to see that either.
I hated all the scary costumes when DD was that age, and she hated them too, found them very scary on other kids.
People always whang on about how Halloween is an American import, but as far as I can tell Halloween in the US is dressing up as anything, not something blood and guts. So maybe we should do it more like them.
@00100001well this was my other reasoning for zombie... I wouldn't go to over the top, but i thought it might be different. So far though, it seems cute is winner. I personally much prefer scary. I'll see if any others say anything我从来没有参加过儿童万圣节派对，而不是从我小时候开始，而且我一直穿着“可怕”
@SparklingBrookthat's a fair comment. This was one of my mum's thoughts, although in my head I didn't think it would be that scary, but to a small child yes it probably would be and they may not like it.
@purplerain16I was looking at some ideas on Google and some are so funny! I wasn't really thinking about other kids finding it too scary though....

If you were having your own Halloween party it would be absolutely fine, but probably not for nursery.
I’d be like you and want to dress my little one up like a zombie. But if it’s a kids party and other children will be there, I wouldn’t. I’d think about how they would react to it, and they might be scared or confused. Stick to cute for now.
That's such a good idea! Lol
I saw a devil costume, I suppose that will have to do. Think I just got a bit too excited

You sound like great fun, OP. If I saw you and your child at a party I'd head straight for you! Go for the zombie look!
Pumpkin outfit. Save the scary stuff for years to come.
Am I in the minority? I think your idea sounds great OP! It us true that some of the other kids may feel a bit scared. You mention you've been invited to a few parties - could she go as zombie girl to another non-toddler party?
You surely don't need to ask this question. Don't dress your baby up as a zombie with blood around her mouth. Ffs
僵尸！No, this is quite a new thread.
Another vote for thinking it sounds fab- you are too old to need mummy's approval.
