Beary Big Paws & Claws Make Halloween Feet for Kids, Moms, Dads

Updated on October 5, 2013

Hey - what can I say - I Love Things Beary, Like Big Bear Feet

Coming from Alaska, I was imprinted on bears --- or on stories of bears! I never saw one in the wild until I was a grown woman living down in the States.

But as a child I never tired of hearing my Grandpa's scary stories. Talk about bedtime tales, he had doozies, and they were all drawn from real life.

He was a prospector, and so much more, in wilderness Alaska, mining and hunting, and policing the railway. He trekked around the state even during Winter snows (in Alaska that may mean 9 months). From his stories I learned about how he built tiny closet-sized cabins up on tall stilts to safeguard his meat from the bears.

Grizzlies were common companions for Grandpa and he had a way of spinning a yarn, wrapping us right up in it, so maybe we feared bears even more than we would have if he never told us his true stories. So, when I think of a minimal Halloween costume that I can don in a flash, I think of big bear claw slippers. Of course, I would augment the feet with some deep throaty growls and lift my feet high for emphasis.

It's always more fun when the big guys get into the spirit of trick or treating, when little ghostlings come knocking at their doors. And what easier way to do it than to put the costume down at their level --- on your big feet! Well, your feet may be small, but they're gonna look big and terrifying with these fancy feet.

If you wear only one scary part of a costume on Halloween Night

Make it these Grizzly Paws Slippers. Stash them next to the door and slip into them before you open it. OR add a pack of punch to every evening, and then go crazy and wear them weekends too. Your own little ghosts and pumpkins will love this ticklish scary part too.

Reviers Rave Over the Fun

I have size 9.5 women's feet, so according to one Reviewer I would wear a Medium for a good fun fit. Take just one look at the picture and you'll be clawing your way to the checkout. Boo! Hoo!

Add just the critical scary parts - the front paw gloves, to carry on with the theme.

What little one won't shriek with delight to see their tidbits handed out from a big Bear Paw!

Amazon advertises these as a cat costume, but to me it doubles for a fine big bear (see the ears).

Just imagine topping off those grizzly bear slippers with long huggie arms and head and paws. A swift and scary combo.

This set of bear paw slippers is modeled in the video below, so you can see how much fun even a child can have with monster feet.

 

It's not a scary costume above (that was just before a bear ate my dog) but it was fun. Is this your year for big frightening furry feet? Or, have you ever worn them?

Do you have any thoughts about bears to share? on feet? Have you seen a Grizzly? Have you been to Alaska? Do you wear funny slippers? Scary slippers?

      @Stephanie36: They're really funny, aren't they. And to think they're made for everyday slipper wear.

      These would be great for those really cold Halloweens. We've had a few with snow, and we're not even that far north. A costume that helps keep you warm is great!

      @WriterJanis2: That must have been an exciting day. I'm not so sure I care to get that close to a living grizzly.

      I have seen a baby grizzly in the wild and it was so amazing.
