These Absurdly Creative Kids Costumes Won Halloween 2019

When it comes to kids Halloween costumes, most parents choose from a variety of basic options like Disney princesses, Marvel superheroes, or animals. And yes, Baby Shark makes that list. For parents who opt to DIY their child’s costume in lieu of buying one, though, the sky’s the limit. Yes, it’s challenging to hop the DIY train if your child desperately wants to be a ballerina octopus, for example. But hey, when they’re really young, the choice is totally (and sneakily!) in your hands. I mean, your kid is too young to watch The Office or know who Dwight Schrute is… but, if you’ve always wanted to get your child to say “I can raise and lower my cholesterol at will,” now’s your chance.

Plus, totally random Halloween get-ups can be adorable if you do them right — and you’re guaranteed to get plenty of compliments from parents and trick-or-treaters who’ve never seen anything like your creation before. And although there’s a very real possibility that someone will ask: “What’s your kid supposed to be?” You’ll already have an elevator pitch of who, what, and why you chose to dress your kids as AirPods.

Some onlookers might judge, some might “awww,” and others might quizzically stare at your children like they’re some sort of cute aliens. If you’re still not convinced, check out the absurdly unique costumes below that totally won Halloween 2019 — and might entice you to plan your costumes a little bit differently next year.

There aren’t many opportunities as an adult to stretch your creative muscle. Except my friends….on Halloween. I’ve never been hyped on the “scary variety” of the holiday. Instead I prefer a more whimsical fall vibe. When I asked #mightymaven what she wanted to be this year, she held up one of her favorite stuffed animals, a rainbow owl she got as gift from @knnav kiddo Ellie, and enthusiastically announced, “Rainbow owl!” 🌈 • Usually I rangle my crafty pal @devrinlee to create her costume, but since her etsyshop @thatcraftyfriend has been swamped with dog costume orders I had to go at it alone. Which means this costume was made entirely without sewing (spoiler, I can’t sew). It’s amazing how far you can get with glue. So, so much glue.• • Opted for a foam visor instead of a mask so she can wear it to places with a “no mask” policy. Happy Halloween pals! • • • #kidscostumes #kidcostumeinspiration #creativecostumes #kidshalloweencostume #kidsofinstagram #kidshalloween #halloweencostumes #costumeideas
