Halloween might not be for another three weeks but it is never too early to prepare. We share some great costume ideas that will make your child shine like the star he is. Here are some great Halloween costume themes for kids!
From the movies
The key is not to go for the obvious. If your child wants to be a character from the Harry Potter movies, why not go for Dobby the elf or Hagrid the half giant? This allows you to get creative with the costume and it will also reduce the likelihood that your child will meet someone with the same costume.
Other suggestions include Alfred, the butler from Batman, Plankton from Spongebob Squarepants or Jessie the yodeling cowgirl from Toy Story 2.Prince and princesses
Most girls dream of being a princess. So why not this Halloween, instead of buying that Disney princess outfit, dress your little girl in a royal blue dress like and let her go trick or treating as Kate Middleton, a real princess!Be the villain
Why, you ask? Because it’s so much more fun! There are so many options to choose from and villains usually have very loud personalities. So your kid can really have fun with this costume and even assume the voices of these characters. It makes the whole experience much more enjoyable. After all it’s not always they can be congratulated for being the bad guy. For example, he can be Starscream from Transformers or the evil stepmother from Cinderella.Weird and wacky
Take inspiration from the news or trending topics to come up with a costume with a difference for your kid. He or she could come as the Facebook ‘Like’ button or even as the twitter icon. The most crucial thing here is to not be limited as these types of costumes can be interpreted whichever way you choose. Come as a deconstructed bookworm (dress as a worm holding a book) or as a mathematical sign. The possibilities are endless!
Famous people and celebrities are a treasure trove of inspiration. From famous politicians to sports stars, the list is endless. If you are dressing more than one child, why not send them out trick or treating as a famous celebrity couple such as Brangelina or if you have a bigger brood, how about dressing them up as their favourite Korean band ?
Whatever you decide, remember that you are only limited by your imagination. The most important thing is that you and your child have fun with the whole process, whether you make the costume yourself or buy it off a rack.
