Halloween is often considered the best holiday for children. They get to dress up like their heroes, zombies, or something straight out of their imaginations. Then they get to parade around in their outfits collecting candy from every neighbor and stuffing their little made up faces to their heart’s content. Choosing a Halloween costume each year can be a time-consuming and aggravating event, especially if your young one does not yet know what they want to be. To get a head start on what he will eventually be asking for, here are some of the best costumes that will be available, or that you can make.
Super heroes. They are always the most favored choice for boys come All Hallow’s Eve, and this year will be no different. The most popular choices will be X-men, including Magneto with his fancy helmet, and Beast with his blue fur. Green Lantern should have a solid following. And Batman, Iron Man, and Spiderman will certainly continue to be solid options. Transformer costumes are looking amazing this year, and will no doubt lead the pack.
While some of the hero costumes are considered classics, such as Superman and Batman, there are a multitude of other great perennial favorites. Zombies are only becoming more attractive to boys every year, with their proliferation on screen and TV. Boys love scaring their sisters, so ghosts are attractive options, as are vampires, ninjas, and devils.
If you or your son wants to stand out from the crowd with something more unique, there are certainly a wide variety of choices. There are peanut costumes, Pinocchio costumes, and Thomas Jefferson costumes. But for something truly individual you will have to make your own. Dress your son as a honey badger and see how many of the parents find it as humorous as the children.
