Okay, moms, you’re not off the hook either! Yesterday we looked at some great father / daughter costume ideas, so today I thought I’d give you moms out there some ideas to dress up with your son. I’m not sure your husbands have been pressuring you about Halloween costumes, so you have a little less pressure!
Little Aviator. Give your boy the gift of flight this Halloween by being his airplane.
S’Mores. Here’s one the entire family can get in on!
Princess and Mario. Every little plumber needs a princess to save! Plus, your son can run around trying to squish goombas all night long, burning off his sugar high!
1950’s Greaser. Get your son in the mood to dance, woo the girl and get all the candy! Heeyyyyy!
Ghost and Spider. For those with younger boys, decorate his baby carrier as a spider and throw on an old sheet to make a spooky ghost costume.
Trying to find the perfect Halloween costume for your kids? Tired of seeing the same unoriginal costumes? Here are a few girls and boys costumes that will stand out, but are still tasteful and safe for the entire family.
All costumes available from Oriental Trading.
Polka Dot Monster. Have your little girl be the star of the monster’s ball (if there were such a thing). This monster costume is both cute and functional, with lots of coverage to keep your little one warm.
Spider Princess. Spiders are always creepy and a perfect Halloween costume idea. Get this twist on a spider costume and turn your daughter into a delightfully scary princess.
Vampiress of Versailles. Looking to spend a little more and get fancy? Look no further than this Victorian era vampires costume. Style and elegance with Halloween flair!
Evil Warlock. This costume is the perfect blend of spooky yet family friendly. Give your son an option besides being a superhero this year!
Gate Keeper. Another great alternative to the mass of super hero costumes. Still creepy enough for Halloween without being over the top scary. Plus, every boy wants to be a skeleton!
Vampire of Versailles. The boys’ version of the Versailles vampire costumes. If you have a boy and a girl, this would certainly be classy, creepy costume set! Besides, vampires are in, right?
