An oldie but a goodie, Wednesday Addams of the famed Addams Family is an easy one to pull off. All you’ve gotta do is find a black dress, braid your kid’s hair, and have her keep real quiet to evoke Wednesday’s solemn demeanour. Your little girl will definitely be spooking some souls with her doll-like appearance.

Wally might be difficult to find in the picture books, but his outfit definitely isn’t. While throwing on Wally’s iconic red and white stripe shirt and blue pants should be distinctive enough for people to connect the dots, pull the entire look together with a similarly styled beanie and round glasses! 

Minions from Despicable Me

A popular Halloween costume that never seems to grow old, transform your little one into a cute minion with a bubbly yellow top and a pair of denim dungarees. For extra crafty parents, score bonus points by DIY-ing your own minion goggles out of scrap materials lying around the house.

It won’t be Halloween without a vampire or two, and Hotel Transylvania’s Mavis is the perfect choice for your little bloodsucker. All it takes to transform into Dracula’s adventurous daughter is a black dress, black tights and red sneakers. Get creative for Mavis’ long black fingerless gloves by cutting up an old pair of stockings and slipping it over your kiddo’s arms. 


Living in a rainy town, Coraline is always either wearing her trusty yellow raincoat and boots, or her comfy starry pullover. You can opt out of using temporary hairspray to achieve Coraline’s blue bob, but don’t forget the small button-eyed doll for extra spooky effect.
