Ask a child what they want to be for Halloween, and their head will explode with possibilities of what they might want to dress up as. We’ve got you covered with these pretty simple, but pretty cool costume ideas.   

 

LITTLE GIRLS

FAIRY PRINCESS

The plethora of fairy dress-up items available makes this a piece of cake. You’ll need a pink or purple dress, a tiara, a wand, wings, sparkly necklaces and matching ballet flats.

 

PRINCESS LEIA

Take a white dress with sleeves and tie a silver ribbon or rope around their waist. Throw their hair up into side buns and give them a black blaster gun to transform them into the Star Wars heroine.

 

TWEEN GIRLS

WEDNESDAY ADDAMS

You’ll need a black dress, tights and shoes and white golf shirt to create the collar. Add a black wig and part the hair into braids. Make their face pale with white face paint or make-up.

 

KATNISS EVERDEEN

You’ll need olive cargo pants, black boots and a black T-shirt and hoodie. Pull their hair into a side braid and pop on a chunky pendant. The key ingredient for this Hunger Games beauty is finding a plastic bow and arrow set.

 

LITTLE GUYS

A TEENGAGE MUTANT NINGA TURTLE

They’re all the rage again, so you can find masks and shell shields in quite a few shops.

 

THE HULK

Slap on a pair of jeans, an unbuttoned shirt and a whole lot of green body paint, and you’ve got yourself a mean, green fighting machine.

 

TWEEN BOYS

CLARK KENT

Pick up a Superman T-shirt and put it underneath a white shirt with the buttons half undone to let the T-Shirt show through. Tuck the shirt into black pants and accessorise with a loose tie and some black-rimmed glasses.

 

ZOMBIE VERSION OF THEIR FAVOURITE SPORT

The make-up is key – and since zombies are taking over the world, you’ll be able to pick up lots of odds and ends to help you create the scariest zombie rugby player around.
