To have dressed my children as Chucky and the bride for Halloween?
AirbagHey · 02/11/2018 20:49
I've clearly been the big talk between parents... had a couple of parents go "oh god you didn't?" And I had to ask what it was about. There was a Halloween disco type think for the kids at school. I have a 2 yo (obvs not at school but siblings welcome) and a 5 year old. The 2 year old didn't ask what he wanted to be and surprisingly dd didn't really know, she kept umming and ahhring. Took her to supermarket to look at costumes and she didn't like any so I kind of came up with the idea.

My DD was Chucky when she was 14 months. She won first prize for her costume! When you have a red head kid you have to

I think it's hilarious, we wanted to do this to my 3yo nephew but he wanted to be Spiderman

I actually hate this (sorry, unpopular opinion I know!) WHY dress your kids up as characters they shouldn't even know about?

I also think its awful. seen someone selling a homemade chucky custome on facebook. it was very popular with loads of people wanting it but i was about it. not something i would do.

Chucky? As in lets come play? Poor taste in my view if it is.

It's all about the parents when you do that.
I wouldn't dress my kid in anything they shouldn't know about at the age they are currently at.

Not horrified but at the same time, why would you? Just why?
DonaldDucksTowel · 02/11/2018 21:10
I genuinely don't get why people are horrified?
My 2 year old doesn't know about vampires, skeletons, Frankenstein or even ghosts but no-ones horrified by those outfits??

Why not? Because it’s clearly nothing to do with the kids’ enjoyment of the day. The 5yo will have no idea who she’s supposed to be. It’s all about you. Yes, yabu, but I get the feeling you want to be told that, to emphasize how cool you are
Racecardriver · 02/11/2018 21:17
Bit cringeworthy. Sorry OP. If you were going to put them in grown up costumes you could have at least done something cool like a decapitated Marie Antoinette or something (yes I am aware that this is quite inappropriate but hey, kind of cool).
NotUmbongoUnchained · 02/11/2018 21:17
Small kids don’t care. They just want to be dressed up and having fun with friends. May as well have some fun with them while they’re little.

I think you’re a bit overinvested to be buying costumes for kids who are too young to know or care what they are dressed up as.
Either let the kid choose or don’t bother.
3boysandabump · 02/11/2018 21:24
I think it's brilliant. I honestly don't see why it matters that it's a character from a film they shouldn't watch. It's not scarier to look at than some of the costumes you can buy in the shop and it gives the parents a giggle

Can't be any more horrifying than this:

I dressed my son up as Chucky and my dog up as Tiffany last year. Hilarious!
MysweetAudrina · 02/11/2018 21:34
I had a chucky and a Donald Trump, their choice not mine
SoftSheen · 02/11/2018 21:34
Some horrified people will be along in a minute
Yes, and I'm one of them. What's wrong with a not-too-scary witch or a cat, for this age group?
Momasita · 02/11/2018 21:36
I think dressing child as chuky is awful sorry. Really tasteless and horrid.
Singlenotsingle · 02/11/2018 21:39
There was another one that horrified me. This woman had blackfaced her 3 yo DD ( only the DD, not herself!) The DD was unrecognisable.
