These scary costumes for babies are what nightmares are made of

To all the parents who are unapologetic lovers of Halloween — your spookiest dreams are finally coming true.

Dressing up as the gory, the ghoulish and the downright disturbing isn't just for grown-ups anymore. Say goodbye to the cutesy Nemo costumes and hello to a little fright, because kids are getting in on the action — and it's way too easy to dress your toddler up as an evil Chucky doll to get some stares (and probably some high-fives) this Halloween.

Warning: These scary baby costumes aren't for the squeamish:

1. Chucky and the Bride of Chucky

Remember Chucky from the 1988 movie Child’s Play? You know, the cute red-haired doll that's possessed with the soul of a serial killer? This cute little guy has the costume down perfectly, from the red hair to the “Good Guys” overalls and even the face stitches. Mom and dad couldn’t leave sister out of the fun, of course, as she is dressed as the Bride of Chucky. Brianna, the mother of these creepy/cute kids says the costumes only cost about $40 and she used stuff she already had around the house.

2. Baby Saw

If I saw this creepy baby costume coming toward me, I would seriously run the other way. This kid is bound to give his parents nightmares wearing the mask of the serial killer “Jigsaw” from the movie Saw. I may never look at a tricycle the same way.

3. Baby Zombie

Vampires are sooo last year. This year, it's all about the zombie — and babies make the perfect walking dead. After all, they already have the stumbling walk and the drooling down pat. This baby zombie has it all — from the tattered and bloody clothes to the blackened eyes. Bonus points for the parents who staged these shots at an actual cemetery.

"I was sitting there watching my baby walk around and couldn't help but think that he walked like a little zombie (he was also growling at people like a little zombie), so we decided that he should be one for Halloween!" said his dad Cedar.

4. Baby Joker

Forget about dressing your baby up as Batman — The Joker is way creepier. This little dude not only has the green hair and red smile painted on — but he has the creepy stare down as well. Hopefully some of his first words have included the catchphrase, "Why so serious?"

5. Baby Alien

This baby chicken costume would be adorable… if it weren’t for the disgusting alien popping out of his chest. Quick, someone call Ripley!
