Halloween is just around the corner. It’s the time to dress up and be creative. Don’t settle on the typical ghost or witch costumes for your kids. There’s so much more to choose from this year, like super heros and villians, or princesses and movie characters. Here are my top 10 picks:
1. Any character from Toy Story 3 is sure to be a hit, with the success of Disney’s third installment of the popular Pixar film. There’s Buzz and Woody of course, but why not try Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head, or Barbie and Ken? Big Baby would be out of the ordinary, or even Slinky Dog. These characters appeal to both boys and girls, of any age.
2. Any character from Alice in Wonderland will be hugely popular. If you are the parent of twin boys, try Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb. Alice is great for young girls, and the Mad Hatter would be great for boys.
3. Iron Man is great for any young man into super heros. Superman and Batman have been done, and over done, so try the newest hero on the block.
4. Dressing up as one of the blue Na’vi creatures from Avatar would be fun. There’s Neytiri for girls, and Jake Sully for boys.
5. Any video game character would be creative. Try Mario or Luigi from Mario Brothers, or one of the characters from Kingdom Hearts, like Roxas, Kerchak, or Ventus. A group of friends could get together, and each dress up as a different game character. This works well for boys and girls.
6. Cheerleaders are great picks for girls. A group of friends could all wear the same costume, and go as a squad, or a group of friends could each represent a different team.
7. Vampires are going to be insanely popular this year, with such shows as Vampire Diaries, and True Blood. This is a great idea for boys and girls.
8. One of the Disney princesses is sure to delight any little girl. There’s Snow White, Ariel, Cinderella, Jasmin, Belle, Sleeping Beauty, and Tiana to choose from.
9. Any character from Clash of the Titans or Percy Jackson would be different. Try dressing your child up as Zeus, or Hades. A group of friends could get together and each play one of the Gods.
10. Phineas and Ferb are great choices for little boys. This Disney show is a huge success.
