Wicked Halloween Costume Ideas for Kids



Dear parents,

Break out the candy and funky costumes because All Hallow’s Eve is coming up baby! More than just fun for the whole family, it’s an activity shared by everyone in town. Houses are decked with creepy decor, Jack O’Lanterns and props of all kinds of ghoulish mannerisms. Brace yourselves as the sun sets for hordes of little trick-or-treaters will be knocking from door to door in search of fang-tastic treats. Be spooky, be silly or just plain awesome, but be something! You’ve seen all the really amazing outfits from cosplay gatherings (Comic Con much?) and from all over the net, so get in on the fun by dressing the kids up into a cool attire. Now, much like Valentine’s Day, prices shoot up as the day gets closer so get started on brainstorming for Halloween costume ideas for kids; either buying ready-made gear retail now or have some real fun by creating it yourself!


What Makes for a Good Costume?

So what are the characteristics of good Halloween costumes? First it’s got to be fun! Well actually it’s safety first but fun is high up there too. Ask your kid what they want to be or offer them some suggestions. Best if its something they’ve seen before like a cartoon! That way they’ll have a lot of fun acting the characters out. Then it’s got to be practical. Make sure it’s safe, sturdy and offers lots of movement. We’ve seen plenty of get-ups where it doesn’t make any sense at all, movement is restricted and accidents happen. Imagine a mermaid suit with no room for leg movement; poor child wouldn’t be able to walk properly, much less taking wide strides between houses.

Another thing to note is to make sure is that it doesn’t get stuffy. So mind anything that is enclosed or uses headgear. See that there’s plenty of breathing room and can easily be removed if necessary. There are plenty of ideas and instructions on how to go about making one so spend some time with the kids to pick out some favourites.
