Incredible Hulk Costumes

My son has been obsessed with the avengers for the past few years. We've been through every character but this month he loves the Hulk. After watching the avengers movie for the millionth time he asked if we could look at costumes for Halloween. Yes I realize its July but he REALLY wanted to look for the perfect costume. After looking over a few costumes we decided on this one. This costume comes in adult and children sizes. Fun for all avenger fans no matter the age! My sons in a size small (4-6). The measurements are right on track and fits him like I expected. You can see its a little long in the arms and legs but still fits if you roll them up a little and tuck under not over. Im very happy that the size charts are pretty accurate. The costume includes the mask and muscle padded jumpsuit.

The mask is really detailed and made of a thick plastic. Im not worried about this one cracking with regular wear. There is eye spaces and they fit perfectly around my sons eyes. He had no trouble running around with this mask on. You can also see the two holes for he nose and there is a small section for the mouth. The mask is held on my an adjustable elastic bad. 

In the photo above you can see him running and having a blast in his hulk costume. He really wants to order more Avengers costumes and after seeing the detail in the mask and jumpsuit Im not opposed! The sewing around the muscles and the padding is done really nicely. The costume looks like its going to hold up over time. After hearing that Age of Ultron is coming out May 1, 2015 this costume is going to need to last. He is going to want to wear it to the theater that day!

The back of the costume is held together by three velcro buttons and is pretty basic. Very easy to get in and out of for potty breaks. Also very easy to clean! Just hand wash in cold water and line dry the jumpsuit. For the mask warm water and dish soap should do the trick. I like that the padding is only in the arms and chest area. Allows him to still fit in the car without hassle. Its not bulky so he's not messing with it and uncomfortable. All in all Im very impressed with this costume and happy we were able to add it to our collection.

Maybe someday By Colleen Hoover

I've been debating on whether or not I wanted to dive into doing book reviews. However this book is just one of those books I have to tell everyone about! So to start off my book reviews is Maybe Someday By Colleen Hoover!

Buy on kindle
Buy on Barnes and Noble

I first heard about Colleen when someone suggest I pick up Hopeless. Once I read it I was a HUGE Colleen fan. So naturally when Maybe Someday came out I didn't even blink. I ran out bought the book and really had no true idea what it was about. I knew there was music somehow in the book but really didn't GET it until I started reading.

At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers that Hunter is cheating on her—and she’s forced to decide what her next move should be.Soon, Sydney finds herself captivated by her mysterious and attractive neighbor, Ridge. She can't take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either. They soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.

The story does deal with cheating and feelings for another person outside of the current relationship. Now Im not a big fan of triangle relationship stories but Colleen pulled this one together nicely. The music in this book OH MY HEAVEN! Being able to listen as Ridge and Sydney create the songs was the best reading experience I've had in a long time. If you listen to the songs before they just don't make sense but after you get it. 

Colleen makes you feel all kinds of emotions in her books. This one is no different. You really connect with Ridge and Sydney. You know they both have the best intentions but sometimes life gets in the way. I don't want to say too much about the book in fear of ruining it for you! 

My advice grab the book, grab the CD or purchase it on itunes and sit back and enjoy. The way Griffin and Colleen worked together to make this unique story come to life is just breath taking. You wont regret reading this one I promise you that much.
