This year, gift your kids a themed costume to celebrate the Halloween holidays. Every child likes feeling special among friends, that’s why you’ll want to pick something unique that reflects their character and brings out their best aspects on this fun day.
Here, we’ve included boys and girls Halloween costumes and the best ideas of what Halloween is all about. Whether your kids want to spend a night in watching scary movies or going out for a trick-or-treat night, we got you covered.
But first, what to look for when buying a Kids’ Halloween Costume
The Trend of the Day
Every year, some costumes stand out as the most popular among kids. Like this year, we have Wonder Woman to thank for inspiring many girls’ costumes.
But even with the trending costumes, the classics of yesteryears always seem to win the day. You can’t miss out on the witchy black cat costumes as well as monster styles. Heroes and playbook characters also win the day.
What’s the weather like?
We celebrate Halloween mostly in the wake of winter. This means the temperatures are dipping and the night will be colder than the day. Always choose a costume that will provide warmth and comfort throughout the time your kids will be in the costume.
If your child has to wear a cute Disney character gown; layer it with something warm on the inside like a woolen/cotton vest.
As costumes are cut into a character, some may not come in a size that fits your kid. That’s why it’s important to have kids try on a particular costume before bringing it home. You don’t want to find out the suit or dress is too large or they can’t breathe in it when it’s already D-day.
A costume looks good when put together. But how easy is it to put on and pull off? You see, there’s no humor in wrestling with a costume as it can spoil the mood of the day. Look for dresses that wear easily using zippers and buttons.
Halloween is synonymous with lots of lanterns, candles, and bonfires. It’s therefore important that you dress your kid in costumes that are fire retardant. Nylon and polyester resist fire, so it would be great if you can find an outfit made from such materials.
