It's baby's first Halloween, and even though they're too young to trick-or-treat they can still wear a costume and join in on the Halloween fun.
Just make sure the costume doesn't cover their face or eyes, because you're supposed to be showing the world how cute your baby is, not trying to conceal their identity.
Also be sure to use a baby safe costume- free of dyes and materials that will irritate their skin, without metal zippers that can pinch their skin or anything small that a chew-happy baby might choke on.
Enjoy baby's first Halloween- they'll be the center of attention, and you get to eat all the candy!

A Baby T-Rex isn't normally thought of as a feasible costume option for Halloween, but thanks to some serious prop building skills, and some animatronic magic, the folks at 3dwizart Sculptures were able to make their dinosaur dreams come true.
