Kids’ Halloween Costume Ideas

Written by dad - 3 Comments

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to put together a list of Halloween costumes that our kids have worn over the years. What follows is an alphabetical list of the 33 costumes that we can remember*.

Halloween costumes 1997-present

  • Achilles (the Greek hero)
  • Anakin Skywalker (you know, the young Darth Vader)
  • Batman (sorry, no Robin costume)
  • Bob the Builder (yes we can!)
  • Buzz Lightyear (of Toy Story fame)
  • Clown (just a plain old circus clown)
  • Cowboy (just a random cowboy costume – giddyup!)
  • Dalmatian (of 101 Dalmatians fame)
  • Darth Vader (oh, Anakin, what have you become?)
  • Dinosaur (a Pachycephalosaurus to be exact)
  • Frodo (Baggins, that is… from Lord of the Rings)
  • Harry Potter (complete with the scar, glasses, wand, etc.)
  • Indiana Jones (this was old-school Indy)
  • Ironman (I am Ironman)
  • Jack Bauer (from 24; for the older set)
  • Jurassic Park Ranger (in honor of the original Jurassic Park book/movie)
  • King (just a plain old medieval King costume)
  • Little Devil (this was a toddler costume)
  • Luke Skywalker (he used to bullseye womp rats in his T-16 back home…)
  • Ninja (including nunchucks, but minus the throwing stars)
  • Pirate (just a random pirate costume)
  • Pirate (Jack Sparrow in particular)
  • Power Ranger (can’t recall the details, but it was a red Power Ranger)
  • Pumpkin (this was a baby costume)
  • Rescue Hero (in honor of the Fisher-Price Rescue Heroes toys)
  • Riddick (from Chronicles of Riddick)
  • Spider Man (minus the spider webs)
  • Star Wars Clone Trooper (Commander Cody)
  • Star Wars Clone Tropper (Captain Rexx)
  • Super Man (complete with Super Man muscles)
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (complete with a TMNT shell on his back)
  • Wolverine (of X-Men fame)
  • Zorro (he left his mark all over the neighborhood!)

If you’re particularly astute, you might have noticed that this list includes more costumes than we’ve had Halloween-years across our four boys. The reason for this is that, in some years, they’ve worn one costume to school and a different one on Halloween night. Also note that this list also includes the four costumes to be worn for Halloween 2009.

Please chime in and let us know what Halloween costumes your kids have worn.

  1. My favorite was last year when my little one was Alvin the Chipmunk. I have three boys so over the years we’ve also been a frog, a baby dragon, red power ranger, spiderman, Harry Potter, a cowboy, a spider, a black knight, Aragon from Lord of the Rings, The guy from Eragon (I don’t remember his name) , Darth Vader and Batman. There are probably more, I just don’t remember them.

  2. Wow you have such lucky kids. It seems you could easily start your own fancy dress costume business from your home!
    I would love to dress as Aragorn, been a life long LOTR fan, pity that in Portugal where I live Halloween is not celebrated in quite the same way.
