Spooky season is almost upon us! If your local selection is a little bit humdrum and you’re wondering where to buy kids’ Halloween costumes online, you’ve come to the right place. Whether your kid wants to dress up as their favorite character, a particular profession, or something entirely random and pieced together to the best of your ability (like the year my son requested to be a “giraffe that really poops and pees”), we’ve got you covered. We have rounded up all of our favorite places to buy kids’ Halloween costumes online, from the popular must-have costumes of the year to the more obscure costumes that will make your kid a standout. Bonus: if the costume you buy is durable enough, it can do double-duty year round as a fun option for a dress-up box!
It’s no secret that we’re absolutely in love with Hanna Andersson’s soft and durable PJs, but did you know that they also have the perfect accessories to turn those PJs into Halloween costumes?

They have a ton of character costumes like Peppa Pig and Super Mario, but also a huge selection of more general costumes. We love this beautiful monarch butterfly!
While this one may seem like kind of a no-brainer, we guarantee you’ll be amazed at the vast selection of kids’ Halloween costumes here.

They also have exclusive-to-them costumes that you won’t find anywhere else, like this gorgeous Alice in Wonderland costume.
Admittedly, Amazon Prime is a total lifesaver on those occasions when you can’t get it together early enough to plan ahead and need a last-minute anything. (No judgment here, because … same.) But whether you’re shopping for kids’ Halloween costumes a month in advance or just a couple of days before the big event, you’ll find whatever you’re looking for — and get it just in time, whew! — at Amazon. Just look at this cute Fire Chief costume and accessories
from Melissa & Doug!
We’re not ashamed to admit that we love pushing a cart aimlessly through the aisles of Target with a Frappuccino in hand, but we can’t count out a virtual “stroll” through Target too — especially when it comes to where to buy kids’ Halloween costumes online.

Boutique has exclusive costumes you won’t find anywhere else, like this too-cute-for-words baby shark costume.

From bone-chilling scary costumes to picks that are fluffy and adorable and everything in between, Etsy has the perfect find — like this spot-on Starbucks barista.

The best place to find a Halloween costume for your Disney-obsessed kiddo? Why, Disney, naturally! The Shop Disney store has all the beloved characters from your kids’ favorite movies and franchises.
