Halloween is one of the most popular holidays each year. United States census data reports that approximately 73.1 million kids were reported trick-or-treating in 2021 – and for this year, the number of estimated trick-or-treaters could be even higher. Dressing up the kids this October? Here are some of the best Halloween costume ideas for kids in 2023.
The Best Kids Halloween Costume Ideas for 2023
The Android Cosplay
Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the hottest topics of the year. If you can imagine what Siri or ChatGPT would look like if they had legs, then this is a great idea to play around with. Take inspiration from famous androids, or come up with your very own concept of what an intelligent bot would look like. This concept would make for a great DIY Halloween costume.
The Classic Vampire
Do you know what’s still cool in 2023? Vampires. If you’re trick-or-treating this year, the undead is still a great source of costume inspiration – and you can choose from any number of classic vampires like Dracula, Nosferatu, or even Renfield.
Vampires are easy to dress up. Just remember to think of visibility when going out treating. Wearing all-black isn’t the best for safety, and all modern vampires need some orange reflective tape in high-traffic areas!
Pennywise the Clown
Even if your kids are too young for the 1000+ page Stephen King novel or they haven’t seen the miniseries, the evil clown concept works great for a scary Halloween costume. You can dress it up (or down) as much as you like. Clown makeup is simple to do even if you have never done anything like it before. Simply add a wig, and throw in a few props.
Remember to practice an appropriate evil laugh that goes with the costume!
Minecraft is one of the most popular video games of all time. It’s also one of the most popular birthday themes of the whole year. Minecraft is a window to a whole different world, with characters ranging from miners to zombies in the game.
A simple Minecraft costume can be created with some inspiration from cosplayers plus a few craft supplies. If you aren’t a creative parent or guardian, costumes with a Minecraft theme can also be found at costume rental stores or Amazon.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are considered a classic that first appeared in the early eighties. The good news around Halloween is that they still haven’t gone out of style: Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michaelangelo are still some of the coolest turtles around.
If you’re creative, it won’t even take a few hours to make a brilliant TMNT costume. Less creative parents can find appropriate costumes from most local Halloween stores.
The Living Dead
Zombies haven’t gone out of season either, whether we’re talking about the old Night of the Living Dead zombies or perhaps something more modern. Kids can be turned into zombies as cute (or as gruesome) as they’d like to be – and all it takes is a little bit of skill to get the makeup right.
Who knew finding a costume idea for Halloween in 2023 could be made so much easier?
