Halloween is one of my (and my daughter’s!) favourite times of the year. I especially love finding cute and fun costumes for my daughter, and now for my son too! I have been guilty of running to the closest WalMart or to the mall and buying whatever quick Halloween costume I can find on the rack, but I really love the look of handmade costumes that aren’t made in mass quantities.
This year, we have looked to Etsy to provide us with our Halloween needs, and I could not be happier! I found a gorgeous Belle dress for Tatum, and Reid’s costume is included in this post (hint: you won’t be able to stand it, it’s that adorable!). One of the greatest parts is that the costumes are usually pretty budget-friendly and will cost equal to or just a tad more than any other costumes you’ll find at the big-box type stores.
Take a look at eight absolutely fantastic handmade Halloween costumes from Etsy, and get your fright-night inspiration started!
Crochet Pumpkin Baby Costume – $24.00
This costume would be absolutely adorable on a newborn baby! Perfect for fall pictures too. You can layer a onesie or sleeper underneath for added warmth.
Girl Despicable Me Minion Costume – $40.00
This costume was so popular that the regular minion version is completely sold out! I purchased the regular minion version for Reid, but if you have a daughter who likes a bit more flare, this would be perfect!
Lion Halloween Costume – $78.00
If you live in a colder climate and are taking your kids trick-or-treating, this is a super-cute and warm option. It is also gender-neutral, so you can hand it down to a younger sibling or family member!
Cabbage Patch Hat – $30.00
This is just the sweetest thing. If you don’t want to put a whole costume on a little one that may or may not enjoy it for the night, this hat is a good alternative, plus it is so sweet! Pop this hat on your baby girl, and you have instant cabbage patch cuteness.
Parrot/Flamingo Mask – $16.78
Here’s another great piece that can be worn alone if your little one isn’t keen on a whole costume. This could also be paired with some wings or pink/white clothing.
Knight Costume – $42.00
What boy or girl doesn’t want to be a hero? This is a really cool knight costume that can be worn over a snow suit or layers if it’s a chilly night.
Dinosaur Hat – $30.00
I love this cool dinosaur hat! You can also order dinosaur spikes to go with it if you like. This is great for both girls and boys.
Aqua Owl Cape – $58.11
Talk about a unique costume! I love the gorgeous colours in this cape. This is truly a one-of-a-kind costume for your boy or girl to wear for Halloween, and I could see it becoming a dress-up staple long after Halloween is over!
What are you dressing your little ones up for this Halloween?
