    Our Barnum Couture Cover is here!!!

    I think it is SO pretty, too. I know DH is gonna say it's girly, but whatever. I like it, and it's in MY car. Plus, DS isn't old enough to know girly from boyish, yet.

    Pardon the pissed off look on his face.


    That's a little better.


    *ETA: I did remove the HUGS while switching covers, and I can definitely get a better harness fit without them. Now, off to change my siggy!

    I don't think your son looks mad he looks so sweet.

    The Barnum is my all time favorite Marathon cover.

    He's a cutie! I agree I think it works for a boy or girl. And it doesn't look bad with the black straps.

    I'm glad you said that, because I was contemplating ordering tan ones. But, I think it definitely would look more girly if it had tan straps, kwim?

    Hmm..that could be do-able, cause I could use tan with both covers. Don't the cowmoo seats come with tan harnesses and HUGS, now? Off to go check the Britax site.

    Actually, I just remembered, I took I tan set off the seat to put gray on. So I could trade you, if you want.

    Would Dragonfly look ok with black?

    Re: Our Barnum Couture Cover is here!!!

    Oh, I like it! And the little guy's cute too Did you trade someone, or can it still be bought from Britax? I don't think I've ever seen that before....I want one. Is the fabric soft, or stiff?

    I bought if off FSOT on here. It's stiff like drapery material, but still soft in it's own way.

    I don't think it looks girly at all. I didn't notice that it had black straps until you mentioned it.

    If that is his po'ed face, you are one lucky mamma. My kids can do much better. He's a cutie!

    I have a Barnum too! I adore it! We have the black harness also and it looks just fine. I want to get another MA someday and another Barnum cover. I was surprised at how tough the fabric is! It's great!

    Your kid is waaaay cute!

    GIRLY? No way! That cover is so gender neutral. I LOVE IT! And for what it's worth I really love the couture covers. My kiddo doesn't sweat as much in hers & they don't feel as scratchy as people say.
