Clever and Cute Halloween Costume Ideas

By Melissa Uhles

Do you need ideas for costumes this Halloween?

I’m here to help with this round-up of five websites with unique Halloween costume ideas for babies, teens, kids and couples. If you plan ahead you can find awesome costumes at affordable prices in thrift stores. This year my kid is going to be Pikachu from Pokemon, his latest obsession. We repurposed a banana costume and got him the Pikachu hat to go with it.

Sometimes you may find a costume in your local retail store but for unique costumes, sometimes you have to order online. My husband wants to create a couple costume for us and was looking on Amazon. He thinks I’d be cute as Bulma from Dragonball Z. 

If you need more inspiration, check out these five sites with Halloween costume ideas galore!


Everyday Solutions Mom posted a great list of family Halloween costumes. I love the Winnie the Pooh costume the best because it reminds me of when my son dressed up as the furry bear when he was three.

PopSugar Moms has 82 costume ideas for babies. I’m partial to the pumpkin but maybe because it’s cute and easy to find.

Good Housekeeping has a list of 25 costumes for kids. I love the Starbuck’s cup the best. 

DIY Projects for Teens has 41 ideas for teens that like to get creative with their costume making. The gumball machine is super cute.

Woman's Day has 50 costumes for couples. So if you’ve got a fun party to go to with your spouse this is a great list. Bob Ross and the pretty little tree was one I hadn’t seen before checking out this list. The Lucy and Ricky costume was fun too.

This was one of the most clever costumes I saw floating around Facebook: The Fidget Spinner.

Adorable and Fun Group Costume Ideas


When you work at an English language school, a punk rock band called, THE PRESENT PERFECTS seems like a great idea. Okay, it was! We had so much fun. 


Everybody loves a FRUIT SALAD. To make these cute costumes all you need is a t-shirt, felt, and scissors. Making the top of the fruit can a little more difficult, but there are easy to find patterns galore. 


The FOUR SEASONS group costume is a huge hit. It's also fun to ask people to guess what your are as a group and what season. This timeless group costume is so much fun! 


We hope you and your family have a happy Halloween and get more treats than tricks.
