EDITOR'S NOTE: In light of conversations around Halloween costumes and cultural appropriation, we encourage readers to check out the arguments against dressing your child as Moana characters for Halloween.
With Halloween sneaking up quick, you probably want to get creative and decide on your baby's costume. Luckily, there are plenty of options for finding one, whether it be heading down the costume aisle at Target or digging deep to make a do-it-yourself (DIY) Halloween costume. But what about the perfect, adorable character to dress up your baby this October? With the recent release of Moana and its popularity with kids and grown-ups alike, it's a great Halloween to think about Moana costumes for babies.
Although all of the characters in Moana are full of life and humorous personality, Moana herself is truly an adorable fit for a baby costume. The great thing about taking on a Moana costume this Halloween is that it's a choice you can get really creative with – both in stores and as a DIY costume idea.
With a few personal touches and some great go-to costume options, Moana fans can gush over the cuteness from your baby's outfit this holiday. As a major bonus, you might even be able to distract your baby by flipping on the Moana movie for some pre-Halloween research during your costume search. In Maui's words, "What can I say except you're welcome?" Enjoy looking through some fun Moana costume ideas here.
