Let Your Child's Individuality Shine in These Cool Costumes

Every year there are certain costumes that you’ll see everyone sporting—the superhero of the moment, the classic cat or a Disney character. But sometimes you want to stand out in a sea of the same and don a costume that’s unique. We scoured the web to find some pretty unique threads that are perfect for Halloween.

Glitter Emoji

You may see emoji costumes around, but we guarantee none will be as sparkly as this gold “smooch” emoji that will shimmer all night long. We just love that you can buy a matching companion candy tote to complete the outfit. Pair with gold tights for extra sparkle or Emoji leggings if you can find them.

BUY IT: Pottery Barn Kids, $19

Marie Antoinette

Take a trip back in time to France and rewrite Marie Antionette’s story. For Halloween, let them eat… candy! This adorable costume channels the queen’s vibe with the same sky-high hairstyle and luxurious threads.

BUY IT: Chasing Fireflies, $55

Mummy Ride On

What kid wouldn’t love the optical illusion of riding piggyback on a mummy? This is an easy costume to just slide into, so there’ll be minimal fighting when it’s time to get ready. Plus, there will be so many great photo ops.

BUY IT: Party City, $25

Monarch Butterfly

Butterflies may be a common costume but change the pastel colored wings in for something just as beautiful as you’d find in nature. This monarch butterfly costume is filled with orange and yellow hues and comes complete with a dress and wings.

BUY IT: Target, $15

Pete the Cat

This cat is certainly a favorite amongst the gradeschool set for his groovy buttons and cool personality that shines through his many books of misadventures. The costume features everything you need from ears to tail, including those buttons. Your kids will be rockin’ out as they Trick or Treat!

Burrito

It’s usually a bit chilly on Halloween so the thought of being wrapped like a burrito sounds pretty good to us! This minimal effort costume just slides right on over your head, turning an everyday outfit into an oh-so-cute costume.

BUY IT: Shop Justice, $50

Cheese Balls

Kids love snacks and, with that, the messier the better. Cheese balls may not be as prolific as they once were in the 80s and 90s, but kids will still get a kick out of being a giant snack jar. Although the wig is not included, we highly suggest this electric orange addition to the costume.

BUY IT: Oriental Trading, $45

Roller Coaster

Put on your best “I’m-so-terrified-of-this-hill” face as you pretend to go down a steep roller coaster in this costume. Let your pretend legs dangle while you walk down the street searching for candy. This one comes in adult and child sizes so the whole family can join in on the fun.

BUY IT: Chasing Fireflies, $64

Pirate Ship

Target’s new adaptive Halloween line is made for those with unique needs. They are creative, stylish and guaranteed to turn heads. We love this pirate ship, which turns a wheelchair into a vessel that tackles the rocky sea. Ahoy matey!

BUY IT: Target, $45

Whoopie Cushion

This costume brings out the jokester in all of us. Imagine your kid walking around in an oversized Whoopie cushion (don’t worry, this version is polyester, not rubber). It’ll be hard to not crack a smile for that one.
