I’ve been saving and pinning images of baby Halloween costumes all year. I wanted to share this early in case you are inspired to order something or start getting crafty.
1. Yoda. A Yoda hat like the one above can be the starting point for a Star Wars-themed costume. Wrap baby in a cream-colored blanket and tie with a belt to give him a Jedi robe. (photo from this Etsy shop.)
2. Fried egg – Use a plain, white sleeper or onesie and attach a piece of yellow felt cut into a circle for the yolk. Or, execute the egg look on a blanket and drape it over your baby when she’s sleeping in the car seat.
3. Just add silly blanket. I am in love with this array of carseat “costumes”. Aren’t they brilliant? Find them at this etsy shop. (If you have a crafty grandma within reach, I always encourage you to show them a photo and ask if they can make something like this.)
4. Swaddled baby options: Sozo makes a blanket/hat duo that turns your infant into a ladybug, bumble bee, sock monkey, or cow. (Buy them here)
6. Football. Start with a brown snapsuit and use white masking tape to add stitching. Or, use a white bodysuit and red sharpie, or felt if you’re fancy, to add baseball stitching. (Photo from this etsy shop.)
7. Sushi. I don’t really get why a sushi costume seems to be so popular these days (based on my online research) but for a baby who will be laying down, this execution is really cute.
8. R2D2. The droid you’re looking for is right here. R2D2 is darn cute for a baby or even a new walker who holds his arms out like a robot. Found in this etsy shop.
9. Bottle. Easier to dress as a bottle than a boob (though the hat could work for either), wouldn’t you say? via Buzzfeed. Make ounce lines on a white outfit and top it off with a white or beige newborn cap, left unknotted.
10. Berry. Cozy, washable costume from Old Navy. Comes in strawberry and banana “flavors”. I think I’d cut a hole through the front and back, just to the side of the zipper near the crotch, to allow for snapping baby into carseat or stroller.
