The pumpkins are in are in their place.
And cornstalks hung with care.
T’was just a few weeks before Halloween,
Yet, your little monsters have nothing to wear!
You scramble and you panic,
You stay up late at night,
Wondering just wondering,
How you’ll ever make this right.
Fear not my fellow kid-raisers,
I know just what to do,
These Cincy-inspired costumes
Are a trick-or-treater’s dream come true!
I’ve always loved a homemade costume. Or at least a store-bought costume that I can alter for my own witty spin. And guess what? Cincinnati is full of fun Halloween costume ideas! Behold: 10 Cincinnati Inspired Halloween costumes:
1. Bengal Tiger
2. Skyline Cheese Coney
3. Oktoberfest Zinzinnati
4. Graeter’s Black Raspberry Chip Ice Cream
5. The “Queen City”
6. Rosie Red/Mr. Red
7. A Flying Pig
8. A Busken Cookie
9. The Fountain Square Fountain
10. And last but certainly not least …. our beloved #TeamFiona!
Emily grew up just north of Cincinnati in Hamilton, OH and now lives in Western Hills with her husband Jim, their son James and their lunatic yellow lab, Rosey. Emily graduated from Xavier University (Go Muskies!), and is now a stay at home mom after working in marketing and promotions for local radio and TV stations.
Emily spends most of her free time visiting the manatees (James’ favorite) at the Cincinnati Zoo, shopping at local antique shops, or singing Beatles songs with James who typically just stares at her like she’s crazy. Emily hopes one day he’ll join in but for now she enjoys his giggles. She also enjoys photography and has quickly turned into a Pure Barre addict while trying to melt away the daily milkshakes she consumed while pregnant. So far it’s going well, but Skyline frequently gets in the way.
Emily loves to write and is looking forward to connecting with other Moms in Cincinnati while writing for Cincinnati Parent.
