The 30 Best Halloween Costumes for Kids
Trick or treat! We've got the cutest and coolest costumes lined up for your kids this Halloween.
It's time to pull out the jack-o'-lanterns, stock up on mini-sized candy bars and start the search for the perfect costumes for your kids. From the uber-traditional outfits (hello, pumpkin!) to the of-this-moment characters, superheroes and villains, scroll through this fun list of costumes with your kiddos to discover their picks for this season.
Classic Halloween Costumes
Pumpkins and ghosts and vampires, oh my! These Halloween costumes are completely timeless but with a little modern twist. From light-up pumpkin and ghosts dresses to a chic scarecrow poncho and a dapper vampire suit, these dress-up ideas never go out of style and are so fun for kids of all ages.
Best Villain Costumes
With the release of the live-action Cruella movie, we foresee spotting a lot of black-and-white wigs running around demanding treats. Give your kiddos the chance to bring out their dark side by dressing up as a villain.
Best Adaptive Costumes
Designed with all kids in mind, adaptive and sensory-friendly costumes ensure that every child gets to dress up as his or her favorite character. Transform a wheelchair into the Mandalorian's ship or Cinderella's carriage. Outfit kiddos with adaptive jumpsuits that feature full-length zippers and shoulder snaps for ease of dressing, and if needed, some costumes have pockets for pumps.
Best Superhero Costumes
With Marvel's first Asian superhero just hitting the big screens, we hope to see sidewalks full of Shang-Chis, and of course, there's a wide range of other superheroes to choose from, including the ever-cool Ghost-Spider, the high-in-the-sky Falcon and the out-of-this-world Captain Marvel.
Favorite Character Costumes
Kids love getting to dress up as beloved characters from epic video games and can't-miss TV shows and movies. Whether they go for the classics, such as Zelda, Lego and Pokemon, or the new guard of Raya, Fortnite and PAW Patrol, your kiddo will have a blast showing off their faves.
Best Creature Costumes
Roars, growls, hisses or hums (yes, apparently giraffes hum), these playful costumes give kids the chance to take a walk on the wide side. Just know that opting for a sloth costume might inspire a very slow night of trick-or-treating.
