Everyday Heroes

Ever since 9/11, everyday heroes from firefighters to police officers to doctors and nurses have been tops for Halloween, and this year is no exception.

Firefigher Hero Kids Costume

You should find no shortage of store-bought "heroes uniforms" at party stores and online (try www.costumeexpress.com and www.anniescostumes.com). But if you want to go the homegrown route, the right accessories can turn a solid-colored sweat suit (black for police or red for firefighter) into a hero-inspired uniform.

For the police officer, add a badge, a police hat, and a pair of handcuffs. The fireman's must-have props: A fire hat and a badge. Turn your little one into a health professional with green scrubs or white pants or a white skirt and white top, and a white jacket as a "lab coat." Add a toy stethoscope, thermometer, and doctor's bag or nurse's cap, and your junior medic is ready to save lives.
