Popular kids Halloween Costume Ideas

Are you scrambling to figure out what your children will wear for Halloween? Getting creative can be fun, but sometimes it’s best to start with the basics and build on that. Here are some ideas:


The classic main villain of mankind, the devil is a character that strikes fear into the hearts of children to this day. Your kid can be a cute devil, a suave devil, or a scary one—it all depends on the outfit.

If you’re going with cute, get a little red devil costume at a party store with some plush horns and a tail. If you’re going for something more suave, find your child a suit and get some prosthetic horns. For something more frightening, try finding a freaky demon mask. This last one works best with older kids.

Grim Reaper

What better way to teach your kid about death than to have him dress up as the Grim Reaper? This is a pretty easy outfit to make. All you really need is a dark robe that obscures your child’s face and a plastic scythe. If you want to make it creepier, you can add other touches like skeleton gloves or a skull mask.


With the popularity of Harry Potter, kids love to pretend that they’re witches and wizards. Dress your kid up in robes and give her a magic wand if you want a cute, Potter-esque witch.

On the other hand, if you want the more traditional “mountain hag” style of witch, then get some latex prosthetics and makeup. Give your little one a long, hooked nose with plenty of warts. Find a ratted up wig and dust it with a layer a dirt. For a costume, you can get some raggedly old clothes.

Want to try a popular costume for your kid this Halloween? Why not turn your kid into a devil, grim reaper, or witch and scare all the other children.
