If you're like me, you begin planning your kid's Halloween costumes months ahead of time. You want to make sure they are excited and thrilled with their costumes, so they feel like the coolest kid on the trick-or-treating block. (And, let's be honest, you want some recognition for finding an awesome costume.) While witches, goblins, and pumpkins all make great traditional kid costumes, this year you may want to spice things up with some movie Halloween costumes for kids. Whether it's a character from your child's most loved animated film or from a movie you adored as a child, finding a costume that brings some life and love to the season is well worth wearing.
Some movie character costumes are readily available at retailers like Amazon, Target, and Walmart, or Party City, but for some you can just dig in your closets and find what you need. If your little one has a favorite film, that's obviously a great place to get some inspiration, but literally nobody (especially me) will fault you for choosing a movie Halloween costume based off of one of your favorites. So get your candy and popcorn ready for these 12 movie-inspired kids' costumes for Halloween.
