Before your child gets old enough to be into all of the popular trends and fads when it comes to costumes, you might want to select one of the classic baby costumes for them to wear on Halloween night.
The most popular one is the baby pumpkin patch costume. These some in many sizes, from newborn bunting to the toddler stage. You can get really cute ad frilly pumpkin costumes with tutus for little girls, or fun and colorful legged costumes for little boys.
Baby devil and angel costumes are another popular classic option for baby’s Halloween night. There are cozy one-piece outfits with feet if there’s a Fall chill in the air, or little dresses for girls if the weather’s just right. Some of the costumes even have a half angel, half devil look to them.
Halloween wouldn’t be spooky if there weren’t frightening aspects to it – and your baby can be a scary winged bat or an eight-legged spider. These costumes are generally black and purple, with a smidge of orange mixed in.
Skeletons and witches are another classic baby Halloween costume option for boys and girls. The skeleton costumes are typically one piece jumpsuits, and some of them have hoods or glow in the dark.
The witch costumes are little dresses with hats, and if it’s chilly outside, you can put tights on your daughter so that her little legs don’t get too cold. Some of the witch dresses now light up, too!
You might want to take advantage of the trend that’s bringing classic costumes back into popularity for vampires and pirates. Thanks to Hollywood blockbusters like Twilight and Pirates of the Caribbean, these classic costumes are bestsellers again.
The little vampire costumes for boys come in plain or fancy materials, usually with a red bow tie and silky cape trailing behind them. You may want to skip the makeup (like a pale face and blood dripping from their mouth) because babies will smudge it and it might irritate their sensitive skin.
More classic attire for babies on Halloween includes the animal kingdom. There are so many baby animal costumes to choose from. You have little piglets, lambs, puppies, lion cubs, lobsters, peacocks, and more.
There are lots of choices that don’t fit into any category, like a baby golfer (complete with clubs), a baby garden gnome, a little ballerina, baby prisoner costume, or one of the classic scary monsters like Frankenstein.
