13 Clever Halloween Costumes For Babies That'll Make You Go "Aww"
If you want your baby to look like the hippest kid on the block come October 31, you can't just settle for an typical store-bought Halloween costume. There is a whole world of clever Halloween costumes for babies that may have never crossed your mind. Take advantage of them now, before your little one starts demanding to dress up like whichever commercialized cartoon character is momentarily popular (and likely out of stock).
You may not realize it, but there are unlimited ways to transform your baby's everyday clothes into unique costumes by adding a few inexpensive touches such as face paint, a headband, a hat, or a mask. The best part about incorporating everyday apparel into your child's Halloween costume is that you can stretch your dollar by using the pieces over and over again in your baby's wardrobe.
You will soon see that there are versatile pieces such as black and white striped rompers and black skirts that can be transformed into several different unique and unexpected costumes. Another great reason to use baby apparel is that it is made to be comfortable for the inevitable moment your little one falls asleep after a long evening of trick-or-treating.
