23 Halloween costumes for bald babies

I had three bald babies and a ton of costume ideas. If your baby is lacking hair, you can execute on one of these Halloween costumes (to be fair, Whitney thinks most of these costumes are also cute with hair).

We love this simple outfit for a baldie and Emily McCall pulled it off perfectly on her little guy. Add the famous Charlie Brown chevron pattern to a yellow top and give your baby a Snoopy doll to hold. Don’t want to DIY? We found this Charlie Brown onesie on etsy.

Other fictional character creations are:

  • Mr. Magoo – My crinkly-faced newborns all resembled Mr. Magoo with no additional costuming. Props include a cane, green coat, and red hat.
  • Mike Wazowski from Monsters IncDisney sells a baby costume of Mike Wazowski.
  • Minion from Despicable Me. Purchase a premade costume on Etsy or pair overalls with a yellow onesie.

  • Dr Evil and Mini Me – Perfect for the bald parent and child combo. See this well-executed costume on Pinterest.
  • Mace Windu – Add the brown and white robes of a Jedi to a tiny light saber. See a tiny Jedi on Pinterest. Whitney will be sharing other favorite Star Wars costumes soon!
  • Daddy Warbucks – Put your baby in a tuxedo shirt or baby business suit and give him an Annie doll to hold. (I hope you can find a cheaper doll. Gulp!)
  • Lex Luthor – Pair a business suit with a plushie Superman doll or some Kryptonite, if you can find any on this planet!
  • Mr Monopoly – Tuxedo, top hat, mustache, and board game! Not exactly cozy, but a funny photo opp. (See below for costume via Costume-Works)

  • Blue Man (as in Blue Man Group) – SUPER ADVANCED because who wants to paint their baby blue?

Having had only skinny babies, I imagine these ball costumes work best someone with someone a little rounder, but it doesn’t really matter. An easy and terrific baseball costume can be made from a white onesie with red stitching drawn on. Sawyer wore his DIY baseball onesie last year at a Halloween party playdate (or buy it for $14 on etsy).

Other balls:
Pool ball as baby Halloween costume

  • Basketball – Adorn an orange bodysuit with dark semi-circles, similar to the baseball above. If you can’t find a solid orange onesie, buy one like this and turn it inside out to hide the printing.
  • Tennis ball – Dress yourself as a tennis player and put baby in a bright yellow onesie. (Or buy this one.)
  • Bowling ball – Use any color bodysuit with three Sharpied circles for finger holes.
  • Magic 8 Ball toy – Tape a pattern of the circle 8 on a black bodysuit. Optional: add answers like “It is decidedly so”.
  • Disco ball – Who’s got a sequined onesie?
  • Billiard ball – In my photo here, Sawyer is sporting some jammies with a large number to be the 5-ball.

Not all these references are current; your bambino is unlikely to know any of these men.

Baby Dalai Lama + 22 other bald baby costumes for Halloween

  • Dalai Lama – use wire rim glasses, prayer beads (these baby-safe chewbeads come in chocolate brown) and saffron robes (the photo above is via thefw.com)
  • Steve Jobs – to celebrate iOS7, dress your babe in black turtleneck with an Apple decal and jeans. We love this submission from Nicholle Pendergraft that appeared in our Costume Hall of Fame a few years back.

  • Telly Savalas – as Kojak, add a fedora and fake lollipop (nothing chokable)
  • Mahatma Gandhi – dress baby in wire rim glasses and white robes
  • Andre Agassi – use sporty clothes and a tennis racket prop
  • Mike Tyson – boxing gloves with shorts or full boxer robe and {ADVANCED} use hypoallergenic liquid eyeliner for face tattoos [See baby in this costume on Ava7.com]
  • Mikhail Gorbachev – dress baby in a suit and {ADVANCED} use washable marker for for birthmark.

Please share your ideas for other bald baby Halloween costumes in the comments. I had a gajillion ideas when I was last pushing a cue-ball baby around in a baby carriage, I bet you do, too. Can you help me round out the list?

Happy Halloween bald baby style
