Halloween is only a few months away so it’s a great time to start shopping for your child’s costume. If you live in the Merseyside area, visit the Smiffys-Liverpool fancy dress shop on Bold Street. With two floors to browse, we have so many Halloween Costumes For Kids you’ll be spoiled for choice.

Choosing Your Child’s Halloween Costume

1. Is There A Party Theme? 
If your child is attending a fancy dress party, make sure that you check if there is a party theme. After all, you wouldn’t want to get an awesome zombie costume, only to learn that the party has a vampires or witches theme.

We have lots of different fancy dress costumes to choose from on our online store, including a diverse selection of different themes. So you don’t need to worry about your child turning up to the party wearing the exact same vampire costume as everyone else.

2. A Group Costume With Siblings Or Friends?
Halloween is a great opportunity for people to come together and enjoy themselves, so if your child has siblings, cousins, or friends; perhaps a group costume could be a great idea?

There are lots of opportunities for group costume inspiration. You could purchase costumes from a popular team of superheroes; you could choose different costumes of the same monster, such as a zombie or werewolf. However, if you’re interested in something a bit different but still keeping with the Halloween theme, you could look to other cultures. Not only is this lots of fun, but it is a great opportunity to teach your children about a different culture. For example, you could choose fancy dress inspired by the festival Día De Los Muertos (also known as the day of the dead). This festival is celebrated on the 1st and 2 nd of November in countries such as Mexico and the United States of America, and includes a unique interpretation of the skeleton. Did you know that unlike European and Asian interpretations of the skeleton, in Mesoamerican culture, the skeleton isn’t a scary monster, instead it’s quite the cheerful character.

Halloween Costumes Don’t Have To Be Scary
There are lots of different styles of costumes to choose from, so it’s important to remember that Halloween costumes don’t have to be spooky or scary. Perhaps your child could dress up as one of their favourite film or television characters; maybe a character from Star Wars, Power Rangers, or another series they enjoy.

Another great idea for children’s costumes is to choose a costume inspired by books, with costumes inspired by the Harry Potter, The Hobbit or Dr Seuss. The Smiffys-Liverpool online store has a fantastic selection of costumes inspired by books to choose from; you can view them by visiting our section for either world book day or our section for books, film and TV .

4. Is Your Child Going Trick Or Treating?
Did You Know? The tradition of trick o’ treating originates from England during the middle-ages with the practice of souling. In the past, children would dress up in masks of spirits or angels and offer prayers or songs in exchange for money or food. Learn more about the origins of Halloween by reading our blog titled, “The History Of Halloween – Where Did It All Start?”

However, when choosing a costume for trick or treating, it’s important to remember that at this time of the year, it gets dark very quickly. So make sure that people are able to see both you and your child. This could include carrying a spooky Halloween light, a set of glow bands, or some glow in the dark clothing. Additionally, adults accompanying children who are trick o’ treating might also consider taking a torch on their journey and/or wearing a florescent overcoat to make sure that oncoming traffic can see them and the children they are accompanying.

5. Don’t Forget About Costumes For Grownups!
Whilst you may be focused on costumes for your children, don’t forget about yourself. Our Liverpool fancy dress shop has lots of awesome costumes for grownups to choose from. So you can match the theme and style of your children’s costumes and join in the fancy dress fun. For example, if you children are wearing Harry Potter inspired costumes; we have lots of awesome costumes for men and women inspired by the wonderful literary works of J. K. Rowling.
