6 Halloween Costume Ideas for Your Kids

posted on 16 Oct 2012 11:29 by ideadoodee

     This year for Halloween we've created a list of our favorite sporty characters and superheroes from books, movies and real-life. Halloween is less than 20 days away, which means now is the time to get serious about your costume.

1. Princess Merida from Brave Princess Merida can ride a horse faster and shoot an arrow straighter than any prince who might dare to claim her hand. To dress up as Merida you’ll have to ditch the glass slippers for a pair of sturdy boots, which only means you’ll be able to walk to that many more houses on Halloween night.

If you’re feeling crafty, take inspiration from this great Sew Can Do tutorial on how to make a Princess Merida costume. If you’re not quite ready to whip out that sewing machine, you can do a mighty fine job covering the basics with a blue dress, red wig, and toy bow and arrow.

2. Batman Batman is one of our favorite superheroes of all-time, and this summer he had to work harder than ever to escape captivity and save Gotham City. 

The Batman costume can be as simple or complicated as you want. Keep it simple with black clothes, a sheet for a cape and a plastic mask, or go all out with body armor and a Batmobile. Either way, this WikiHow article has everything you need to know to make your own Batman costume.

3. Oliver Wood, Angelina Johnson or Ginny Weasley from Harry Potter The Gryffindor Quidditch Team has a long history of fierce flying and Quidditch Cup victories. Take inspiration from the Harry Potter movies or design a costume based entirely on your own imagination. Here’s a great blog post about how to make Gryffindor quidditch robes if you need a little inspiration to get started!

4. Zed, Zamzee’s Little Ball of Energy Zed is a non-stop mover and Zamzee’s very own little ball of energy. Some of his favorite pastimes are whooshing and whirring through the clouds and swinging through the trees in search of a carrot. Zed’s a pretty simple guy, so to dress up as him on Halloween you don’t need much more than a white t-shirt, orange marker, and a bundle of energy. Not sure what he looks like? Click here. But if you want to get the form factor right, you can also make a Zed costume with felt and foam from the craft store and your mad sewing skillz. Add an orange wig for bonus Pointz! 

5. Popeye the Sailor This super strong sailor has been a hero since the Roaring Twenties, and when he goes trick or treating he usually asks for spinach.

You can probably make a Popeye costume just by rummaging through your closet and getting creative with blue jeans, a black colored shirt, a white sailor hat. But if you want to be super strict about staying in character, check out this guide to making a Popeye the Sailor costume—complete with instructions on how to make your very own can of spinach!

6. Athletes from the 2012 Summer Olympics To dress up like an Olympian, first pick your favorite athlete. Gabby Douglas, Michael Phelps or Serena Williams, anyone? Put on some red, white and blue sweats, and make sure you have the necessary accessories for your sport (leotards, goggles, tennis rackets, etc.). Then make a bajillion of those pretty gold medals to hang around your neck, and walk up to every door like you’re walking up the medal podium!
