Halloween is all about the cute kids in the creepy costumes — and celeb kid costumes often take the cake. Those wee ones’ parents have the creativity and the money to make (or buy) a truly epic costume. But 2018 is a year full of surprises (good and bad), and this year’s best costumes ran the gamut — from über-famous celeb kids to regular normals who just plain won at Halloween (and, let’s be honest, at life).

Here are our favorite kids costumes from this Halloween season.
The hitchhiking ghosts
Neil Patrick Harris, husband David Burtka and their children — Harper Grace and Gideon Scott — are known for their elaborate family costumes, and this year was no different. The Harris-Burtka clan’s outfits were spooktacular.

Seriously, this is nightmare fuel.
