It’s almost time for little ghouls and goblins to gear up for Halloween, and one of the most exciting parts of this spook-tastic holiday is choosing a costume. This year, the hottest Halloween costumes will be based on kids’ favorite characters from movies, TV shows, and toys.
In fact, more kids than ever before will be celebrating Halloween dressed as their favorite superheroes, according to The National Retail Federation. The top 10 list also includes Batman, Star Wars, and Frozen characters.
Although Halloween only lasts for a day, you can make these purchases last a whole lot longer—costumes are great for dress-up and pretend play all year long. Embracing this concept, costume manufacturer Rubie’s Costume Co. also introduced a new line of role-play items called Imagine by Rubie’s, which features easy-wear costumes kids can don anytime, anywhere.
With so much to choose from, it won’t be hard to catch the Halloween spirit with these costumes:
Kids will be on their way into the night to save the day! Kids can choose to be one of their favorite pajama-wearing superheroes, including Catboy, Gekko, or Owlette. Each costume features a jumpsuit with attached shoe covers, a tail (for Gekko and Catboy), a pair of gloves, and a headpiece. Plus, these super suits feature glow-in-the-dark parts, including the animal amulets on the chest.
Holy cuteness, Batman! These role-play and dress-up items are perfect to make kids feel comfortable while they’re out trick-or-treating all day. The Deluxe Armored Batman Costume Top Set features a muscle chest shirt, cape, and mask; the Deluxe Superman Muscle Chest Shirt Set includes a muscle chest shirt and cape; and the Wonder Woman Costume Top Set comes with a shirt with an attached cape and fabric tiara. Other accessories, such as reversible weapons and accessories are also available for purchase.
Ever wonder what it’s like to look and feel just like a Lego minifigure? Now, kids can dress up like them, including every thoughtful detail from blocky legs to the claw hands. The offerings in the Nexo Knights line includes Clay, Lance, and Aaron, and the Ninjago line features Lloyd, Kai, Jay, and Nya. The Prestige costumes include a minifigure tunic, pants, a mask, and a pair of hands.
