Handmade Halloween Costumes

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!

Pumpkin Baby Costume

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.

Despicable Me Girl Minion Costume

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 Costume For Boys or Girls

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

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 Kids Mask

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

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

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

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?
