Who needs Halloween costume inspiration for the kids this year?

As someone who never made much of a fuss with Halloween, I am definitely starting to get into it a lot more now and want to look for fun and cute ways to embarrass dress up the little people. So if you are looking for a new Halloween costume or just want to look at all the cuties (and better parents than you!) then take a look at this list!

1. Baby Sushi Roll

We are big foodies, so any opportunity to show it off then we are in! There are loads of different options too since sushi is so diverse, here’s a cool homemade option that is pretty easy to make!

2. Newborn Groot

Guardians of the Galaxy was a fantastic film and Hella Mommy definitely agrees with this gorgeous newborn outfit. So why not embody one of the cutest characters and dress your kid up as the newborn groot because don’t pretend you didn’t stay for the dancing sequence!

7. Baby Bat

This is a gorgeous twist on a spooky theme and I love what they have done with these outfits over at Tell Love and Tea Party! It’s great for babies too because they are always lifting their arms which is made 1000 times cuter with bat wings!!

8. Mad Hatter

Alice in wonderland has had a reboot in recent years with Johnny Depp playing the hatter incredibly well. Recreate this iconic character with a unique costume like this one!

9.Precious Little Pumpkin

Where would Halloween be without a pumpkin?? I mean it has to happen at some point in the kid’s life otherwise, you aren’t parenting properly, am I right?

10. Wizard of Oz’s Lion 

You can’t go wrong with the Wizard of Oz, whether it’s Dorothy, Tinman, Toto, Fairies, Muchkins or the cowardly lion himself!

11. 1980s Aerobics Instructor

If you are looking for something quick and easy, throw on some tights, a babygrow over the top and get some legwarmers and you are already there with the 80’s – Make the colors bold and vibrant and you can’t go wrong! I love this homemade felt boombox by homemade by Jill that she used to mix it up and add a little something extra to the costume.

13. Three Little Pigs 

For when you have many kids you need to get costumes for this is a great group costume, you could expand to include the wolf and little red riding hood or reduce the amount of piggies, either way it’s total cuteness.
