If you are always admiring those cute Anne Geddes style baby photos of little ones dressed up as little animals then this is a way to have a go at home at a fraction of the price a professional photographer will charge you. Amazon Seller Accessory Station sell handmade crocheted novelty baby outfits specifically as props for these types of photos, and the prices start from just £2.53 plus £1.15 delivery!
The cheapest is the adorable Tortoise outfit that is £2.53, and the next cheapest are the Ladybird at £2.81, and the Giraffe at £2.88. There are a choice of 17 from this seller, and my favourite is the one that looks like The Very Hungry Caterpillar, costing £3.84. I can imagine that the Mermaid and the Minnie Mouse will be very popular as well.
If you can crochet yourself then obviously it's going to be cheaper to make them at home, but for those who can't then this offers a very affordable way to get a photo prop that is going to make a unique baby portrait.
Some of the reviews do say that the costumes are too big for the new borns that they are intended for, but as these are individually handmade items the sizes cannot be completely consistent, and for that matter neither are babies! It's still a cracking price, even if you might have to wait a little for baby to grow into it.
