Baby Halloween Costumes: Dressing your Baby as a Costume Accessory

Baby Halloween costumes are a fun and adorable way to get into the festive Halloween spirit.  As long as the costume is comfortable, your baby probably will not even realize she’s wearing it.  At this young age, you have the opportunity to dress your baby as anything that reflects your own creativity and interests.  One way families choose to celebrate is with group costumes, allowing baby to be the accessory that makes the perfect finishing touch.  Today we’re sharing baby Halloween costumes that are perfect accessories for your family costumes.

If your family is going as a classic “group” of characters, babies are terrific at dressing as the littlest in the clan.  After all, they are naturally small and adorable, and they probably won’t complain about being dressed as the runt of the litter.  Some examples of this use of baby Halloween costumes as accessories are dressing your baby as Toto from Wizard of Oz, Yoda from Star Wars, piglet from Winnie the Pooh, Olaf from Frozen, Sebastian from The Little Mermaid or Tinkerbell from Peter Pan.

Babies also make excellent side kicks for your older kids’ costumes or even your own.  Do you have a superhero big brother or a pirate big sister?  Add a Robin to your older Batman or a parrot for your budding pirate.  If the big kid in your family is going to be a firefighter, let your baby be the Dalmatian helping sniff out fires.  Your older children will love having their little bro or sis as part of their selected costume.

Babies are rolly and polly, so why not dress them as a ball?  The rest of your family can dress as a sports team – whether it’s a football, baseball or soccer team is up to you.  Your baby can be the adorable football, baseball or soccer ball that ties the team together.

Nursery rhyme costumes are classic and right at your baby’s level.  Every good Mary needs her little lamb (or Little Bo Peep with her sheep), and Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater needs a good pumpkin by his side.  Other great examples include mice from Hickory Dickory Dock, a spider with Little Miss Muffet, and Humpty Dumpty with his horsemen.


Two for One

If you have twins, babies within two years of each other or want to dress up with another baby friend, look for baby friendly double costumes like Thing One and Thing Two, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Raggedy Ann and Andy or Mario and Luigi.  Other twosie ideas include Peanut Butter and Jelly, Sushi and Soy Sauce, Milk and Cookies or Salt and Pepper shakers.


Stuck on You

Here’s another clever idea:  carry your baby in a baby carrier and use the attachment to your advantage.  You can be a kangaroo with a little baby joey in your pouch (using a front carrier) or the Hunchback of Notre Dame (using a back carrier).  Another idea is a two headed clown, monster or alien using your face and your baby’s.


Have a blast with your baby Halloween costumes!  Happy Halloween!
