When shopping for Halloween costumes, keep comfort in mind. Don't forget to factor in the temperature -- a thin leotard might not be the right thing to wear trick or treating in colder climates, and those fluffy fleece suits could have your child ready to turn back without candy if it's warm out.
Also consider long term wear. If possible, steer your kids toward costumes that they'll want to play in all year. Happy hunting!
- The Amazing Spider Man Reversible Red to Black Muscle Chest Child Costume
This costume is reversible, so your little superhero can be the good guy for one Halloween festivity, and the bad guy at another. Such a smart design will make this costume a top pick for dress-up long after trick or treating.
- Cockroach Child Costume
Yuck! This costume is truly terrifying. It's also warm, so your young gross-out artist will stay toasty while scurrying about the streets.
- Fiery Phoenix
Lame, tulle and sequins come together beautifully. Optional accessories, including a red sequin choker and fiery feather wig, really set off the dramatic look.
- Robin Hood and Maid Marian
Both costumes are wearable and suited for a variety of imaginary play scenarios. Maid Marian's cloak is a luxurious option for cooler climates.
- Lil' Man Eating Shark
This silly pullover shark includes jeans attached to the mouth. Stuff the legs and add shoes for laughs.
- Pac-Man Deluxe Child Costume
Ghosts are available, too, so get siblings or friends together for a fun sidewalk chase. Inky, Blinky and Pac-Man can be worn with the head covered or exposed.
- Peter Pan Costume
Impish boys will look charming in this costume, which is comfortable enough for everyday dress up play. The top is cut and detailed to look like a veined leaf, and the hat is surprisingly secure.
- Hero Merida Costume Collection
This collection includes the glamorous Adventure Brave Merida Costume, an appropriately fiery and voluminous hair piece, a gleaming tiara, road-friendly gladiator sandals, and a gender neutral suction cup archery set.
- Hedgehog Costume
Rows of felt spikes plus one upturned nose equals total cuteness. All of Pottery Barn Kids' puffy costumes are designed to keep trick-or-treaters warm. The headpiece detaches, so your kid can get in character without donning the entire ensemble for regular costume play.
- Where The Wild Things Are Max Costume
This cozy bodysuit is perfect for a cool night of trick or treating. Thoughtful details include a fluffy tail, shiny crown and applique buttons.
