40 Creative + Unique EASY Costume Ideas for Your Little


Holy mother of all Halloween posts! This is by far one of my most favorite posts to prep for. I have been secretly stashing these adorable unique and creative costumes for sometime now, its finally my turn to share my list with all of you!

Regardless of how you celebrate Holloween (if you do), this post will surely spark some ideas for dressing your little one this year. And as an extra perk, these aren’t too far fetched! I tried to have a busy Mama mindset while selecting my favorites for you. At the bottom of this post, you will find other ways to doll up your little (or even yourself!) so make sure you make it all the way through the post! Have another unique and creative costume for me to share? Let me know in the comments below!

1. A bowl of spaghetti and meatballs!

2. Super cute DIY Emoji!

A snail. Now why didn’t I think of this! So easy to replicate and so easy to tweak to your own style. This costume would obviously work best for our little walking littles as the shell part would be… smashed if it was on a baby 🙂 Click here for this great tutorial from Oh Happy Day.

Okay so I have a confession. This little Giggly Wiggly Octopus is Miss Natalie right from our area in the East Valley! She is my girlfriend, Emily’s little girl. Ever since Emily posted this Octopus costume on Costume Works, it has been a viral sensation. Emily is so SO crafty and creative and she flexed her skills and made this costume happen! Adorable right?

The load of laundry that you’d never complain about seeing! The only tweak I would make to this is just using a generic water bottle instead of Shout or another cleaner. This is also a great costume for those of you that live in colder climates! Would keep them super warm 🙂 To see more info on this costume, click here.


12. Bubbly Bubble Bath

And while I’m talking about cleaning stuff…. How about a Bubbly Bubble Bath! I loooooove this costume! I love it if you have a single child or multiples. I love that you can dress up your Radio Flyer or just have them walk as a bubbly bubble bath. If you check out the other images of this tutorial, they also included blowing bubbles – so creative! And threw in some bath stuff like loofahs and back scrubbers. Love it! Click here to find out how to create your own bubble bath costume.
