Top 5 Halloween costume ideas for kids

Halloween is a great time of the year for children, especially as they can wear their favorite costume. They could even dress as a character from the movies. Here are some of the many kids Halloween costumes which they could don this October 31st.


A Halloween costume doesn’t have to be scary. In fact, they could pretend to be Captain Jack Sparrow. Why not add a miniature cutlass or a red bandana to an order that’s made with an online retailer? A gun could also be purchased. As kids enjoy trick or treating, they could pretend they are fighting Captain Barbosa when walking from one house to another. An inflatable parrot could also be bought.


A popular costume idea for girls, it gives them the perfect opportunity to do their best cackle when asked by someone who they say trick or treat to. When ordering a witch costume, make sure that a broomstick comes with it. As any young witch will want to have their very own broomstick, their parents won’t accrue additional expense. This is because accessories won’t have to be purchased.


The popularity of the Twilight saga has led to a huge rise in the number of kids wanting to dress as a vampire. To recreate the vampires, such as Edward, which appear in Twilight, a parent can buy a white t-shirt, grey trousers and a bomber jacket. However, to look like a vampire as Bela Lugosi did, an online retailer might have this type of costume in their catalogue which comes with a cape, a white shirt and a bow tie.

Star Wars

It seems as though that every boy who watches Luke Skywalker fight Darth Vader instantly becomes a Star Wars fan. Not only could a young boy dress as Obi-Wan Kenobi but also Boba Fett. Girls are also huge fans of the ongoing film franchise. Not only could they choose a Princess Leia fancy dress costume but Darth Vader too.


There are plenty of superheroes which kids could dress as at Halloween such as Superman and Batman. There are other superheroes which many children look up to. The success of The Avengers has led to many kids wanting to dress as Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk and Captain America. Thor is also one of the most popular contemporary kids Halloween costumes, especially as he has a hammer. There are many other movies which have inspired costumes, such as Spiderman. The Amazing Spiderman was released in 2012 and was different than Sam Raimi’s recent trilogy. This superhero remains very popular and a sequel, which is due for release in 2014, will still see kids wanting to be like their hero Peter Parker.

Finding kids Halloween costumes doesn’t have to be difficult, especially when an online retailer is chosen that has these and many others in their catalogue. As quick delivery can be provided for each and every order, it could be placed just days before Halloween.
