Check out the cute photo of my youngest daughter in a Belle costume. Disney gave me the gown and accessories to celebrate the release of Beauty and the Beast. My oldest daughter has seen the movie three times already. She really loves it. I really like the film too. It’s a love story and a musical with wonderful songs. I also like the messages in the movie: inner beauty is more important than how you look on the outside, the right person can bring out the best in you, and a woman doesn’t have to settle for just any man to be happy. The film is excellent and I think everyone will enjoy it. Beauty and the Beast is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital HD. Note: Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (WDSMP) sent me a Blu-ray to review on my dad blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.
My son and I can’t wait to see the Deadpool movie next February. We love Deadpool. He’s funny like Spiderman, but he has no moral compass. He’s not a villain, so I guess that makes Deadpool an anti-hero. For those of you who don’t know, Deadpool’s super power is speed healing. He’s just about impossible to kill. In fact, if his head was severed, all he has do is stitch it back on and he’s good to go. BTW, Deadpool’s real name is Wade Wilson. Wade got his super power from a secret organization (remember the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie?). Even though he’s not like the other superheroes, Deadpool is one my favorite superhero characters. That’s one of the reasons why I love my new Deadpool costume (see photos). It’s awesome!
If you’re a regular reader of my dad blog, then you know the kids and I love Halloween. In my opinion, Halloween should be a national holiday. We love decorating and dressing up for Halloween. Last year, my kids dressed up as Flash, Deathstroke, Apple White, and a serial killer. That’s right, my youngest daughter wanted to be a serial killer. I hope that’s not a sign of things to come. For the next Halloween, she’s going to dress up as Harley Quinn. If you don’t know, Harley Quinn is the Joker’s sidekick. Like the Joker, Harley Quinn is a prankster and has a wicked sense of humor. Kinda of like my youngest daughter.
Check out the Riddler costume I received for review on my dad blog. My son picked it out from the Wholesale Costume Club website. Apparently, he wants to be a villain next Halloween. As you can probably guess, Halloween is big at our house. In fact, a costume wouldn’t be consider a bad gift for Christmas in our family. I know, we’re weird. BTW, the costume is available in both medium and large sizes. The regular price for the item at Wholesale Costume Club is $28.98 ($26.96 for members).
Have you figured out what costume you or your kids will be wearing for Halloween? If you’re thinking about a Batman costume, then you should check out Wholesale Costume Club’s new for 2012 Dark Knight costumes. The Halloween costume company sent me a Batman costume for review on my dad blog. I love it and think it’s awesome. I plan on wearing the new Dark Knight costume when I take the kids trick-or-treating on Halloween night. I think I’m going to be a big hit around the neighborhood.
