The Coolest Kids Costumes

Sep 4, 2008
Kids costumes get ever cooler and so much more advanced as time passes by. Long gone are the days of the lonely hobo with his eye-liner five o'clock shadow, carrying his worldly possessions in a kerchief on the end of a stick. These days, kids costumes can be more and more creative and glamorous. While there are still plenty of options for do-it-yourself kids costumes, there are tons of great premade items available, too. So, what are the coolest kids costumes? Check out these ideas.

Disney kids costumes: It used to be that being a princess for Halloween meant putting on one of Mommy's fancy dresses and buying a tiara. When today's girl says she wants to be a princess, the response is likely to be "which one?" Of course there are tons of Disney princess costumes for sale. Your little princess can be Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Ariel, Aurora, Cinderella, or Snow White. Little boys might be more interested in dressing up as Aladdin (or even the genie), Peter Pan, Pinocchio, or Prince Charming. Don't forget about favorite Pixar characters like Shrek, Fiona, and the crew from Monsters Inc.

Star Wars kids costumes: Sure there are a ton of Disney princesses, but there's only one Princess Leia. From the white gown to the cinnamon bun hair, Princess Leia is one lady who never goes out of fashion. Of course, Queen Amidala offers a ton of costume options of her own. For your good little boys, there are Obi-Won Kenobi and Luke Skywalker costumes. If your kiddo has a bit more of a "dark side," though, consider dressing him up as Darth Vader or even a Storm Trooper. Don't forget the cute factor that comes from dressing the littlest ones up as Yoda or R2-D2, either.

Television character kids costumes: There are few parents of "tweens" who don't have some familiarity with Hannah Montana. The young ladies just love this singing, acting diva with the ever-changing hair. For a little more seventies' flair, how about dressing her up as Daphne from Scooby Doo? Of course, you don't want to forget the boys who would be adorable as either Fred or Shaggy. Can't you just picture that scraggly little goatee? Of course, there's always the Sesame Street influence to consider. What little one doesn't act just a bit like Cookie Monster on Halloween, anyway? Why not dress him or her up to match the insanity that comes from that much sugar in one night?

Animal kids costumes: The kids costumes available today are incredibly detailed, and this really shows in some of the animal-inspired costumes. Pairing a yellow tulle skirt with a striped shirt and a pair of wings makes an adorable baby bee. Swap out the yellow and stripes for red and dots, and now you've got the cutest little lady bug around. Imaginary animals are a whole lot of fun, too. Your kiddos can transform into the Cat in the Hat, Winnie the Pooh, and even a Care Bear. Some of the best animal costumes, though, are those that are completely unexpected. Keep your trick-or-treater warm by dressing him up as a penguin or swaddle your infant in a wiggle-worm costume.

Scary kids costumes: If ghosts and ghouls are more your taste in kids costumes, then you won't be disappointed in the variety that is out there today. Your little guy can become a pretty realistic vampire, complete with cape and fangs. Your sweet little girl might step out of her ordinary good girl role to portray a wicked witch for the day. Zombies, skeletons, and werewolves all fit nicely into this category. There is no shortage of options for adding a spooky touch to kids costumes this Halloween.
