Nothing is as precious as seeing a little baby dressed up in an animal or bug costume for Halloween night. It’s even a popular saying: “Cute as a bug!” So you’ll want to choose among the wide selection of bug and animal costumes for your little son or daughter this October 31st.
Let’s start with the bugs. There are some for boys, some for girls, and some that are unisex in nature, like the caterpillar. Most of the little bug costumes are actually for girls — because they’re dresses with wings, like the butterfly, bumblebee and ladybug.
One unisex animal costume in the animal kingdom is a baby bear costume. You can get specific types of bears, like koalas, panda bears, and polar bears. Or, you can opt for a character costume, and dress your baby girl or boy up as a Care Bear!
Birds are another unisex animal costume option for Halloween. You can buy owl costumes, peacocks, parrots, ostriches, and more! Two popular baby bird costumes this year will be Penguins for the movie Happy Feet, and Angry Birds costumes based on the popular gaming app.
One fun idea is to have the whole family dress up as animal characters from Winnie the Pooh. You can find baby costumes for Tigger the Tiger, Kanga or Roo, Eeyore the donkey, Piglet, and even Owl! Of course there’s one for Winnie the Pooh bear, too.
There are many regular animal costumes that fit the bill for a fun Halloween night, too. There are many baby lion outfits, sweet cows, and little bunny rabbits. You can find pink pigs, little soft lambs and ducks, and even ferocious crocodiles!
Monkeys are a popular animal costume option, and you can find them in normal versions or sock monkey varieties. If your daughter is going to be a kitten, that’s an easy costume to find. But little boys aren’t left out, either. You can buy a Puss in Boots cat costume for him!
Puppy dogs are a sweet idea for a baby costume. You can either find regular dog costumes, like a brown puppy or pink poodle, or go with one of the characters that everyone loves such as Snoopy, Scooby Doo, or Clifford the Big Red Dog.
Dinosaurs may be extinct, but not in the costume world. They have a ton of choices — from fierce T-Rexes to fun triceratops. And even thought they’re not real, you might find a dragon costume that you like even better than a typical dinosaur!
When you consider animal costumes, don’t forget about those creatures living under the sea. Finding Nemo made clownfish and flounder costumes a hot item, but there are also really cute lobster, crab, shrimp and shark outfits, too!
