What to Look for When Buying Halloween Costumes for Kids 

Trendy

Some kids love having the latest trendy costume each year. Check out popular movies, tv shows, video games, and books to stay ahead of the trend curve. While some trends are staples when it comes to picking out costumes, others may be popular this year and a thing of the past next year. Halloween costumes are always a fun addition to the dress-up bin! 

Comfortable

No matter how much your child likes the idea of a certain costume, if it’s not comfortable, it’ll be hard to wear. For school-aged kids, not only should the costume be comfy, but choose something that they can put on themselves or with minimal help. Some schools don't allow masks, weapons, or other extra accessories, so check those out prior to in-school events. 

Sizing

Use the size chart on a costume site prior to buying. Weight and height measurements are much more accurate than age-based measurements. If you live in a cold climate, sizing up is always a good idea so if Halloween night is freezing, a few layers can fit under a costume.
