We saw your BoingBoing posting on the squid costume and thought we'd send this one along... a few years back Target hired us to design their Halloween campaign, including a some new low-cost costume ideas. This is one that got produced, we called it "lil' squirt." Of course, it was only produced that year. Thanks-- we love BoingBoing!
You should give props to BabyStyle.com for the blue octopus costume - It's not on their site any more (I guess they sold out, due to the awesomeness?), but that's who makes them. Our baby and one of her baby friends wore them last night as well. They were excellent little octopi.
"Here's another squid costume! This one was made by my brilliant friend Anna Costa of SF. This is her son Atom: Link."
