We just finished watching Hocus Pocus, a personal fav, trying to squeeze in as many Halloween movies before its over. If you plan on trick-or-treating with the kids this year, you have a few more days to snag a costume. Skip the long lines and low inventory by shopping for something quick. Get creative and make your own kids costumes that can be reworn all year long. Featuring kids brands: Feather 4 Arrow, Luna Luna, Nellystella, Imps & Elfs, Molo and For Love & Lemons.
Here are 8 Kidswear Pieces Inspired by Halloween Movies:
Coraline is a very cool stop-motion animated movie about a girl moving in her new home and discovering a secret door to a hidden alternative life of hers. If her favorite Halloween movie is Coraline, she can easily dress up as her with this Feather 4 Arrow Magical Stars Sweatshirt. She can complete her costume by adding freckles, Oh Baby!s Metallic Leggings and a blue wig for a simple and fun costume she’ll be sure to love.
Corpse Bride (2005)
Another stop-motion animated film, this movie is not the macabre horror story as the title suggests, but a sweet and visually lovely tale filled with lots of singing and comedy that’s great for the whole family to watch. If your little gal is wanting to dress up like Emily, the corpse bride, she can wear this Luna Luna Swan Stars Ruffle Tutu Dress and be painted blue with a skeleton arm. Wear a long blue wig and finish it off with a tiara and veil for an unforgettable costume.
An animated, funny, and sweet movie about a little boy who jolts back his beloved pup back to life and wrecks havoc on the town. One of the main characters in the movie is Elsa Van Helsing, and if your girl loves her she can create a costume with the Nellystella Chloe Cotton Lace Stripe Dress, use a white button up underneath with black and white striped tights and put her hair up in two high pigtails. Make it a sibling costume or dress up the family pet for amazing family photos.
A comedy film, great for the whole family, by and large, derives its laughs from the kind of slap-stick comedy kids and adults love. If your kids love those minions, they can dress up as one of them with this For Love and Lemons Sweetheart Open Back Overalls with a yellow sweater underneath. Complete the look with goggles and black sneakers.
A great film about a young boy is accidentally transported to the Land of The Dead, where he seeks help from his deceased family members to return him back to the living and reverse his ban on music. If your little boy aspires to be Miguel, he can use the Imps & Elfs Denim Loose Jeans with a solid red hoodie and brown boots. All he got to do is paint his face as a skull and grab a guitar and he’ll be all ready for trick-or-treating!
If you have a fear of sharks, Sharknado might be the perfect dark comedy/horror movie to inspire a halloween kids look. Get creative by having him wear Molo Stars Color Block Rash Guard and Molo Above Ocean Fish Board Shorts that will also be perfect come summertime. Create the “tornado” effect with cotton wrapped around him and add some shark teeth and he’s good to go.
