Halloween is only a few short weeks away, which means we've all got costumes on the brain. For many moms, the first stop for a costume isn't a party supply store or Target — it's Pinterest. And why wouldn't it be? With millions upon millions of Halloween-inspired crafts and costumes, this is the ultimate brainstorming tool for both artistically-talented and artistically-challenged moms. Whether you're the former or the latter, you'll be happy to hear that Pinterest's Newsroom, in partnership with Lyst, released the top trending costumes this year... including the Pinterest's five most popular Halloween 2018 costumes for kids. Whether you want to draw inspiration from these or copy them exactly (that's my personal M.O.), these are the disguises that most other parents are searching and crafting this year.
In typical Pinterest fashion, there were no "ordinary" costumes in the top five this Halloween. After all, Pinterest is the mecca for people far more creative than the average person, and you likely won't see their children dressed as witches, pumpkins, or black cats. This is also, of course, why I adore this website. How on earth did someone even think to create a boba tea costume? I don't know how these crafty wizards come up with this stuff, but I'm so glad they do. I'm even more thankful they share their wisdom with all of us through the lifesaver that is Pinterest.
