Yes, we know we just survived back to school. But now is the time to start the Halloween costume discussion, decision, and assembling, especially if you have more than one event (some municipalities offer great events a week or two before the big day). Have fun perusing these picks of our favourite Halloween costumes for kids (all choices that can be purchased in Canada without getting dinged with U.S. shipping and duties!) and find something cute, safe and fun. After Halloween, add those outfits to the Tickle Trunk of costumes to keep the magic going all year round.
Little Pineapple Halloween Costume
So. Freakin. Cute. Everyone loves pineapples and this costume is just too adorable. Perfect for girls or boys, and just think of the tropical theme we can build around this showstopper.
Halloween Zombie Pajamas
Not every kid wants or can handle, an intricate costume with scratchy fabrics or seams that distress. But they still want to join in the fun. These pajamas are just the ticket – soothing and less likely to irritate but with a zombie (or mummy?) motif to still get into the Halloween spirit. Plus, after the big night, they make a cozy sleepwear set.
My Little Pony Rainbow Dash Costume
Ok, so this is pretty gosh darn cute. And it combines a flowy skirt with a rainbow, so our little one is pretty much in heaven. Bonus – headband included!
If your kids are a fan of Teen Titans Go, you’ll know why this costume is an appropriate pick. If your kids love waffles and love to dress-up, but you could never quite figure out how to create the look, this tunic waffle costume is the answer to all of those dilemmas. Sweet as maple syrup.
Long Sleeve Dino Hooded Fleece
Who says tween girls are the only ones who like onesies? We all love onesies! They’re soft, warm, comfortable, and make sure great costumes. Check out this dino costume for boys or girls – we love the vibrant green and scales. We’re not going extinct in this get-up.
Halloween Cat Jersey Dress
Soft, sweet, spooky and Halloween-like – she’ll adore this comfy costume (and will probably wear it all year long, too). This is also a great pick for indoor parties to avoid overheating – the costume version of the little black dress.
Veterinarian Role Play Costume Set
Yup, it’s official – they’re in love with this veterinarian costume, and we can’t say they blame them. Complete with a pretend pet to care for, costume scrubs, and lots of tools to help Fido feel better, this pick highlights their caring personality.
Dash Costume – The Incredibles
Of course they’ll want to dress up as Dash after seeing The Incredibles 2…how many times this past summer? We’re OK with it, secretly hoping we’ll be allowed to pull off our own “momma” Incredibles outfit and fight the bad guys alongside him.
PJ Masks – Catboy, Gekko & Owlette
Wow, you can’t beat this deal – three costumes for three PJ Masks characters! Each comes with a mask and a cape so your little one can be a different character for the school, daycare and trick or treating festivities.
Peppa Pig Ballerina Costume
They’ll be thrilled that their favourite TV character is available in costume form. And while perhaps we’ve had enough of Peppa, it is Halloween and we can’t deny that they’re over the moon.
They’ll be warm on a chilly Halloween night and comfortable too. Plus, it’s age-appropriate. We’re also quite certain that this will be a favourite outfit for cuddling on the couch as the winter months approach.
Emojis seem to be ever-popular with school-aged kids and we’re kind of in love with this super-cute costume. Works great for both in class and outside at night, too! All you have to do is adjust the clothing underneath for the temperature.
Child Inflatable T-Rex Dinosaur Costume
Ok, this one is pricey, but come on! So hilarious! Imagine seeing your little one as king of the dino world, the T-Rex, with this inflatable jumpsuit. Love it.
