What's especially awesome is that there are so many gender-neutral choices available as well. You're only limited by your imagination, basically.
So if you're stumped as to what your little one should wear this October 31 or you're just looking to mix things up a little this year, then check out these hilariously creative toddler Halloween costumes.
Is there anything cuter than a baby dressed like a little old lady? Probably not. To make a walker, use a length of PVC pipe ($6) which can be cut to size, PVC joints ($2) to make the curves, screw-in caster wheels ($5), and a couple of tennis balls ($6) to really complete the walker look. Next, you'll need a granny wig ($13) and some glasses without lenses ($6). As for the outfit, really anything will do because the focus will be on the cute walker and faux granny wig.
4The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man
Just like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in Ghostbusters, your toddler is probably permanently sticky and unintentionally destroys everything, but is so adorable you can't be mad at them. That's why the toddler Stay Puft costume ($20) is a match made in sci-fi heaven.
5The Toddling Dead
If your little one hasn't quite mastered the art of walking yet, that's no problem. In fact, a bit shuffling and a few missteps will actually work in their favor if they dress as walker (or a zombie) from The Walking Dead. To accomplish this hilarious look, you can either dirty and cut up old clothes or buy a gray toddlers shirt ($5) and matching gray toddler shorts ($6) instead. Have at it with the smudge, non-toxic gray makeup ($6) and non-toxic fake blood ($8). If you want to really have fun, you can also let your toddler munch on some edible candy body parts ($18).
Technically, Marty is a unisex name, so any kid can have pretending to be a time-traveling teen from the '80s classic, Back to the Future. They'll be outta time in this Marty McFly toddler costume ($60) faster than you can say Copernicus.
This is particularly a genius idea if you have multiple children and one of them already wants to be Marty. Your toddler can babble away incoherently and it will perfectly work for playing the part in their Doc Brown toddler costume ($35). You'll have onlookers saying, "great Scott," as soon as they see your tiny inventor.
