Halloween Costumes

As Halloween is only 24 days away, it’s time to order your Halloween Costumes ASAP. Raise your hand if you haven’t done it yet?! Did you know that some Halloween costumes from Pottery Barn Kids already start selling out in September? Run sister, run! I especially love PBK Halloween costumes because they’re nostalgic and so well designed. This is the first holiday season I planned wayyy ahead of time, and I am so glad! I learned the hard way last year about how holiday decor and costumes get picked over quick – by the time it’s days before the holiday is approaching, everything is picked over. So, this year, I put together a quick guide sharing my most favorite Halloween costumes so we could all get ready together! This was a hard year because it’s Charlie’s LAST year being able to fit into a PBK costume, as he’s now 9! I am so glad Claire still has several more years to enjoy it, but I am telling you, when both kids are unable to fit into PBK costumes, it’s going to be a sad day in the Johnson house. Every year I look so forward to picking out their costumes, so we made this year extra special! The kids ended up already trying their costumes on a little early for our Halloween Party, but you might as well wear it as many times as possible, right?! ;) If you’re on the hunt for the cutest ideas, I’ve put together a few options for you!

 

Cute Halloween Costumes

Our family is over-the-moon excited for Halloween this year, especially now that all of the kids have had a ton of time trying on their costumes! ;) My niece Paisley is heading out in the Glow In The Dark Witch Costume this year. Charlie decided he wanted to be Frankenstein, while his cousin is dressing up as a Werewolf. Together they’re quite the pair! My niece June is just the cutest in her Unicorn costume and Claire is all ready to go in her Magical Fairy Costume. They’re all SO excited about their costumes and Halloween. It makes me so happy! If you still need ideas, there’s so many cute and fun options to choose from!

June loves anything pink, so this Light Up Unicorn Tutu was the perfect match for her! She loved the headband with the unicorn horn as well, and she sometimes just wears that around in preparation for Halloween! ;)

12. Werewolf Costume

Toby has been obsessed with werewolves recently, and what better way to celebrate the holiday than to become one! The Werewolf Costume was the perfect costume to fit his love for howling. 

Halloween Trick or Treat Buckets

When you get the perfect costume, you need a Trick-Or-Treat Bucket to match! Or, if you’re like me, you might use a few of these cute buckets for your Halloween party and then keep them in the kitchen full of candy! Here are a few of my favorites for the kids, and then some for me. ;)

Halloween Costumes

Even though this is our last year with Charlie in a PBK costume, we still have a few more with Claire! Every year they have the BEST costumes that are so cute and great for trick-or-treating. Also, the treat buckets they have this year are so amazing. I love keeping them year after year because they last so long we can reuse them in future years for decorating or parties!
