My son is absolutely positively sure that he wants to be a police officer when he grows up. As such, he requests a police officer costume for Halloween each year. It started with the police costume he wore in 2015, but now it’s two years later and I asked what he wants to be for Halloween this year and the answer is “a policeman.” As someone who, at 20, couldn’t make up my mind about careers, I truly appreciate how consistent he is at 5 about his future career. I also appreciate that his career choice won’t involve 8 years at an expensive university. But I honestly didn’t want to see the same costume again this year- and I doubt he’d fit in it. So we’ve been trying to expand on what type of career options he might have as a police officer and I figured a great round up of policeman costumes would help inspire him to wear a slightly different costume this year.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find many bloggers with tutorials on how to DIY these costumes so many of them are store purchases. In fact, searching through Amazon and Pinterest for costumes was pretty brutal too. So. Many. Inappropriate. Costumes.
Hopefully this post will help some of y’all who might be having the same struggles this Halloween season!
