Best Halloween Costumes

By Isabel Kallman

These Halloween Costumes are still in stock! Usually, this close to Halloween, it’s slim pickins’ out there.
Here are some of our favorites this year:

Children’s Butterfly Costume

This gorgeous butterfly costume is made by Wovenplay which is the most beautiful children’s costume/ dress-up clothes we’ve ever seen. You can buy most of the line at nonchalantmom and Tiny McSmall. Below are some other favorites for Wovenplay.

Children’s Pirate Costume

Children’s Cowgirl Costume

Both costumes by Wovenplay and available at nonchalantmom and Tiny McSmall.

Children’s Superhero Costumes

We love this cool superhero costume that can be used year round. There are several color options that will please both boys and girls. You buy a cape, mask and cuffs at Mahar Drygoods.

Children’s Unicorn Costume

We love this costume because 1) it’s perfect for the really cold-weathered parts of the country because it works well over your kid’s coat, and 2) it allows you and your child explore your creativity as well. You buy the hood, and tail and add the rest. It is also available as Dinosaur, Lion or Puppy Costumes. They are all available at the Magic Cabin.

Snow White and Sleeping Beauty Costume

This is a reversible dress that is meant for pretend play, but we don’t see why it can’t serve double duty as a Halloween costume. True, it may not fit perfectly (it’s one size fits all), but your daughter (or son) will be so happy to be a princess that she (or he) won’t care about the fit. Plus, you get two princesses for the price of one. Score!

This dress (as well as other reversible options) is available at FAO Schwarz.

Little Red Riding Hood Costume

Just add a basket to this red cloak and your little girl is transformed into Red Riding Hood. Available also at Magic Cabin.

Children’s Dragon Costume

Usually Pottery Barn is all sold out by this time, but the price on this one was just slashed (although still on the very high side). But this is a real statement costume, if we say so ourselves. And, it can be played up as both cute or scary depending on your child’s Halloween persona.
