How to Choose a Halloween Costume for Kids – Buying Guide

With thousands of costumes to choose from, it is difficult to narrow down, and pick the best one. No worries, here is a guide to help you in deciding how to choose the best Halloween costume for your kids. 

Identify the Type of Costume Your Child Prefers

Identify the Type of Costume Your Child Prefers

Your kids might already have something in mind for their costume, or they still have no idea what to be for Halloween. Either way, it is best to do your research because there are many costume ideas available online to choose from.

 

Researching can also help identify the costume theme; these can be scary, funny, cute, or a cool character. It can also determine what clothing style the kid is comfortable with. This can be a dress, skirt, pants, or a onesie. Putting all that into consideration, it allows you to narrow down costumes and pick the best one.

Decide Between a Solo or Group Costume

Decide Between a Solo or Group Costume

The fun thing about Halloween is dressing up. As mentioned, there are many costume ideas to choose from, ranging from solo to group costumes; this means you can dress up your child or younger relative into a solo character or dress up with them.  


A solo costume is best if the kids opt to dress by themselves or choose an outfit that can stand alone. However, if the siblings or parents want to dress up, you can find a costume that goes well with each other, matching, complementary costumes, or characters from the same show.

Make Sure It's the Right Size

Make Sure It's the Right Size

Shopping online could be difficult, especially when it comes to clothes. The downside is you can't see if it is a perfect fit; you can only base off the size in their size chart. Take measurements of each body part needed for the costume. From that, take a look at the size chart given by the store and check the child's closest size.


Do not forget to add an allowance for the measurements because it is better to get a costume with a bigger size rather than a smaller one. It allows you to alter the ensemble if the size is bigger. 

Consider Your Budget

Consider Your Budget

Costumes have varying prices, which can go from cheap to expensive. In selecting your costume, determine if the costume comes with add-ons such as wigs, belts, and accessories, which is a good deal because you are buying all you need for the price of one


On the other hand, some costumes only offer the outfit itself without any accessories. It is up to you to determine if the costume is worth the price. It is best to set a budget beforehand to ensure you do not splurge and go overboard on spending.

When All Else Fails, DIY!

When All Else Fails, DIY!

Sometimes, the costume is already available at home. If you cannot find any costumes online, the best way to come up with a costume is to make it yourself. You can grab different garments at home, such as a plain t-shirt, pants, or a dress, and turn it into the perfect costume for your kids. 


If there aren’t any garments to use, you can opt to buy these online. If you want to nail a DIY costume, the key is to plan. You could start putting the costume together as early as a month and a half ahead. 


The reason for this is you need to prepare the necessary garments, as well as learn how to piece them together. Moreover, you need time to construct the props you need to complete the perfect Halloween costume for your kids.

Top 10 Best Halloween Costumes For Kids to Buy Online

The list composes of our top 10 picks for your kids' Halloween costumes. We have included the clothing style, add-ons, and available sizes for each costume, in which each store has provided their size chart, so carefully check that out and do not forget to add allowance to the sizes.
