Halloween is such a favorite time at Destira that it’s a whole season, not just a single day. From initial brainstorming in Spring and Summer, to launching the Costume Shop in early fall, we really love creating Halloween Leotards and wearing costumes of our own.
Kaelyn is a ten-year-old level 4 gymnast in the JO program at Virginia Elite Gymnastics Academy. She loves gymnastics even though she has some atypical challenges in building strength and skills. We love your positive attitude and determined spirit, Kaeyln!
Do leotards make good costumes? Yes, they do! We’re offering over a dozen Halloween leotards that make no-stress costumes in a jiffy. There’s a super comfortable holiday leo in our shop for every gymnast, whether they want to be spooky or playful for this year’s celebration of disguise.
The best gymnastics leotards now available in three new, whimsical styles to put a smile on your face. The Never Stop Dreaming collection features sparkling unicorns, friendly robots, tropical-toned dinosaurs, leaping kitties, and tripe-stacked ice cream cones to make your gymnast smile.
