If your children are asking what you're going to be for Halloween and you're coming up empty, don't worry! We rounded up eight creative costumes that are perfect for any mom.

1Witch Halloween costume

This beautiful witch costume ($99) brings sophistication and style to a normally creepy and tattered character. With intricate details and high-end fabrics, this costume will last through many years of trick-or-treating and make you the talk of the Halloween party.


2Sue Sylvester from Glee

You don't have to be a Glee fan to know who this witty and sarcastic cheer coach is. You can use this outspoken costume ($49.99) as your excuse to let out your inner comedian while you parade your children around the neighborhood. This costume would make a perfectly hilarious family collaboration when paired with little cheerleaders.


3Yo Gabba Gabba Foofa

Sometimes being a mom requires dedication and participation when it comes to coordinating Halloween costumes. This cheerful Foofa costume (39.99) comes complete with a pink polyester dress and character hat and would be perfect next to a little Brobee, Plex, Tutti or Muno. Foofa can easily be worn by a pregnant mom due to its flowy shape.


4Snow White Halloween costume

Mom can be the fairest in the land with this authentic Snow White costume ($47.70). Dazzle and amaze the other children on the block...but be careful! They might think you came straight from Disneyland and want to take a picture with you. If you have a few children (or even a new baby), dress them as the Seven Dwarfs to really get into character.


5Evil Queen Halloween costume

It's quite possible that your princess-crazed daughter wants to be Snow White this Halloween. This situation would leave you with no other choice than to become the Evil Queen (29.99). This costume has everything from the over-sized collar and hood with attached crown to the long, dramatic cape and corded sash. Finish off the look with a handheld mirror to spook the beauties in your land.


6Princess Leia Halloween costume

If you have boys, it's likely you will have at least one Storm Trooper, one Darth Vader or one C3PO in your group of trick-or-treaters. Become the beautiful Princess Leia (54.99) with this deluxe costume, which comes complete with the signature side bun wig, hooded dress and belt. Now you just need to talk your husband into dressing as Han Solo.


7Soccer Mom Halloween costume

Show your support for the team as the ultimate Soccer Mom. Put together your Halloween costume with a few essentials, including a soccer mom sweatshirt (for those super early, super cold Saturday mornings), blingged-out hat and whistle. Don't forget to carry a soccer ball and, if you want to really get in costume, cut out a cardboard miniature minivan and attach it to the stroller.


8Spartan Cheerleader from Saturday Night Live

"Uh-huh, uh-huh. Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh!" Have a blast (or embarrass your kids) as you skip, hop, jump and cheer your way down the streets in this unforgettable Saturday Night Live Spartan Cheerleader costume ($29.99). The long sleeve Spartan shirt and matching pleated skirt will inspire you to make up cheers as you encourage your children to ring doorbells. "Who's that Spartan at that door? It's me. It's me!"
