Kids generally don’t need an excuse to dress up like their favorite characters. With Halloween coming up in just a week, we know how handy last-minute costumes come in, especially for the parents. Since this is the one night that all the kids around the world can choose anything or anyone they want to be, we want to give them some costume inspiration to pick out their favorites for Halloween 2021.

We’ve put together a few classics, originals and DIY costumes, some of which are influenced by trending Halloween costumes’ searches, our favorite creative ideas, and new movies.

Original Halloween Costume for Kids in 2021

Grandma Halloween Costume 

Like Grandma, like granddaughter. This costume idea is the perfect mix of classic and original, funny and cute, simple yet intricate. You cannot go wrong with the grandma/grandpa look!

Halloween Umbrella costumes

The Tooth Fairy, Cowboy, Dizzy Dude, Movie Director and Deck of Cards are just five quick and creative costumes that will take up no time to put together. But if none of these quite cut it for you, here’s a 2-min video with 51 easy DIY- Do It Yourself- Halloween costumes that include the five above as well, in case you’re curious. 

You can’t get excited just yet though; the video below includes a few Umbrella costumes that will change your kids’ Halloween game.

Squid Game DIY Costume

We’ve also come across an incredibly cute list of Halloween costumes that a 'friendly budgetarian traveler' created, and we’re getting all sorts of feels with it. It’s definitely got some trendy Halloween ideas that could work for both kids and adults- but especially cute for the youngsters. You’ll find one of the trendiest costumes going around this year from the “Squid Game”, along with how you can easily make it yourself

Kids Go Vintage

We've also decided on a favorite costume from the list above and thought it was a great idea to highlight; it is surely the ‘Go Vintage’ costume. What a brilliant and underrated idea to dress your kid up with! You’d just need to dive into grandma or grandpa’s closet, find some old postcards and you won’t be able to control the cuteness. Amazon has a wide array of vintage outfits for kids. 

Cruella Halloween Costume

Brace yourselves, parents! This one is for all the cute little rebels out there. Disney’s Cruella De Vil and the original 101 Dalmations are both movies that share the main character, Cruella, and are loved by so many. We are bringing you the Kid version of the costume below. Polka dots, pearls and some crazy hair will do it! Sorry boys, this one’s mostly for the girls.

We hope we’ve helped with some ideas for next week. Remember, at the end of the day, the best part about Halloween for kids is all the candy that goes around. That’s why we added Ellen Degeneres’s hilarious video with some more last-minute costumes and some candy-hungry kids. Enjoy!
