For those of you who don’t know, Halloween is my favorite holiday, and probably one of my top 10 days of the year. I look forward to this day with such a pretty intense fervor, and this year, I’ve been looking over Halloween costumes for kids. While rifling through the various options, I stumbled into a veritable goldmine of holiday goodness, and had to share!
Wednesday Aadams: Holy shit, I just about died when I saw this costume. I was so happy about it that I am seriously reconsidering my current Halloween costume plans so I can be Wednesday. I’m sure they make it for adults (ta-da: they do!), but if I had a daughter, she would definitely be dressing up as Wednesday for Halloween.
V: Got a pre-teen who would love nothing more than to wreak havoc and incite mayhem? (Um, what?) This is THE costume! All you need is a kickass wig & cloak, and you’re set.
Hermione Granger: She’s smart, she’s badass, and she’s way more awesome than the boys of the books. Bonus: you can get the Hermione wig here. Also try: a kid’s Dementor costume, and, of course, the standard Harry Potter dress-up accessories.
Skeleton: Perfect for the kid who just really likes to creep people out. It’s obviously quite gender neutral, but does involve a mask, which will probably freak out the younger set. See also: a skeleton NINJA costume!
Princess Leia: Do I even need to explain why she’s here? You guys more than know about my Star Wars nerdiness. See also: a kickass Plo Koon costume, your standard Jedi gear, and a Jedi robe that I would purchase and just wear around the house.
Scooby Doo: This costume is gender-neutral and impossibly awesome. I love some Scooby.
Dora the Explorer: I have a newfound soft spot for Dora since Jasper has started stroking her face tenderly every time he sees a doll or movie in a store. I feel compelled to point out that he’s never even seen an episode, so I think it’s love at first sight. Anyway, this costume is cuuuuuuuuuute!
