The dwindling days of summer can mean a lot of things to different people.
But for some people, the promise of autumn means one thing, and one thing only: baby Halloween costumes. Planning them, creating or buying them, setting up photo shoots showcasing them, getting your child to actually wear them — or simply looking up adorable photos of them, whether you have a child or not.
