    Can we have an adult-sized lion jumpsuit? I’m thinking there are endless couple and group costumes that could be done with this one. Friends dressing as Wizard of Oz characters? A lion and lion trainer? Dressing up on Halloween is for adults too!

    Great costumes! It’s great to be able to source them here rather than search through pattern books. I would disagree with the Family Circle comment – more variety is a good thing, not a bad thing

    Love you Burda Style, but recently my favourite site has started to resemble an issue of Family Circle.

    The fairy and ballet costumes are so simple but elegant, I like the reduced style compared to some really overdone costumes out there.
