Instant & Warm Halloween Costume Ideas for Kids
Kids are characters 365 days out of the year, so Halloween isn't that scary for parents after all. That being said, your little one can dress the part with our sweet and fun Kids are Characters Collection. There are options for the animal lovers, and options for those who love the outdoors - whichever you choose, all are lined insanely soft and comfy, sure to keep them warm as they stock up on a year's worth of candy in one evening.
To make life that much easier, we compiled all the looks we know will save the day for last minute costume ideas (and make kids excited to keep their hats on during trick-or-treating, as well as throughout the winter on the coldest days spent playing outside!)
Here's our list of easy & instant costumes for a cold Halloween:
Being a lumberjack for Halloween isn't so hard when a lot of it is hiding in your closet! We chose these super comfy Osh Kosh B'Gosh overalls, a plaid shirt from carters, and our own Butch pom beanie to finish off the look.
2. ski patrol
It's so easy to be a part of ski patrol this year! Our ingredients for this mountain-lovers costume consists of a plain & simple red crewneck paired with simple black sweatpants. Tie it all together with a pair of your child's favorite goggles and our ski patrol beanie, and you're good to go!
Being a penguin is simple enough! Grab your favorite fair of black leggings (like these from Old Navy), some yellow rain boots (like this pair of ZOOGS from Amazon) and a Penguin Youth T-Shirt from Walmart for a super slick Halloween costume! Don't forget the turtle fur penguin beanie to let everyone know that just like a penguin, you'll stay warm outside.
4. Woodland Creature
Pair a set of Elowel brown two-piece pajamas with our adorable Fawned of You hat, and you’re ready to go! The cute little ears make this beanie costume-ready. Want to step it up another notch? Add a matching brown + pink polka dot tutu, like this one from Walmart, for an extra notch of fun. Craving even more? Grab some makeup to give your little one the classic deer look (some great tips can be found on this Pottery Barn Kids tutorial).
We took a cute, classic long sleeve black tee and paired it with some solid black leggings. The finishing touch comes with our ninja balaclava for the perfect stealthy ninja look this Halloween. If you want a pop of color, we’d suggest grabbing a roll of thick, red ribbon at your local craft store to serve as the sash. But all you really need is a balaclava and matching outfit and you're ready to sneak through the night and into the doorways of candy-bearers!
Your little one's candy bag will be packed to the brim when they show up smiling in this adorable ensemble! This might be the comfiest costume on the list. Pair a set of grey + white striped pj’s with our Raccoon Loon pom earflap beanie, and you’re little one is ready to head out into the night. You can always forego the pj top and instead pair it with a long sleeve black tee or skater dress – still insanely comfy, with an added bit of style.
