Which Halloween costumes are best for kids in warmer climates? While superheroes, fairies, vampires, gobs and goblins are typical Halloween costumes, it’s not always a wise idea for those in the warmest part of the Sun Belt, where even late into the fall temperatures can still be plenty hot and humid.
Below is a list of Halloween costumes that are suitable for parents looking to find a nice and cool costume for their child to sport while trick-or-treating.
Flintstones, meet the Flintstones. They’re the modern Stone Age family. And their wardrobe makes for a nice and cool Halloween costume in more ways than one. This has been one of the most common Halloween costumes of the last half of a century.
For girls, they can dress up as Wilma or Betty and if a child dresses like the first of the two then they need only dye their head red or wear a red wig unless they are a natural red head. Slap on a necklace of pearls with the costume and they’ll look like a mini-Wilma and no necklace is even needed for Betty.
For males, it’s much of the same, as the costume and perhaps some hair dye or a black or blonde hair piece (depending on the character portrayed) is all that would be needed.
Quite possibly, plastic wrap could be used on their feet and spread between the toes so that the child’s feet do not get dirty from walking around.
Basketball or Soccer Player
What more fun way for a child to dress up for Halloween than as their favorite basketball or soccer player? Because sports jerseys are a lot more resistant to sweat than many other forms of fabric, sports jerseys make for a great trick-or-treating costumes, especially of basketball and soccer players. Football uniforms wouldn’t work as well because of how much equipment the child would be towing around let alone how expensive it would be to wear it for one occasion all by itself.
Learn how make an ancient roman costume here. Do it to such a degree that even Caesar himself would be proud. A toga (or stola for women), pair of sandals and a Laurel Wreath is all that is needed and it makes for a nice and cool costume to go out in on a hot night.
Finally, for girls, a ballerina makes for a breezy costume to wear. Obviously there would be a need to make sure the costume is not too short but it definitely would make for an easy and not too hot outfit (at least from a temperature standpoint).
