Pokémon Go has revived everyone's love of the popular 90's show so it is no surprise that kids all over want to dress up as they're favourite Pokémon! We have a full article dedicated to Pokémon Inspired Halloween Costumes for Kids and Teens.

Headless Costume Idea

If your child wants to be super scary this Halloween, try out this fun and creepy Headless Costume Idea! We found this great video tutorial on how you can make one from scratch quite easily. Sometimes this costume can be quite heavy to wear all night, so beware if you child has any sleepover plans.

Favourite Book Characters

We have a collection of great costume ideas for kids who want to dress up as their favourite characters from books. From Captain Underpants to Harry Potter, these costumes are perfect for the bookish kids.


Does your child want to be a fish out of water this Halloween? You might be surprised at how easy it uis to make a mermaid costume from just a few basic pieces and some imagination!

Star Wars: BB-8

Star Wars is still a huge influence this Halloween so rather than opting for the popular Rey and Kylo costumes, why not get your child to dress up as the adorable new droid, BB-8? The costume is seriously easy to make and will definetly stand out from the crowd!

Alice in Wonderland

We just love this Alice in Wonderland inspired costume which can also double up as a costume for World Book Day. It is quite easy to achieve this look yet it is very effective!
