Someone felt like throwing back to the movies of old with this useful E.T. Costume. If your child is easily distracted, hide a few toys under the blanket to keep him/her occupied during the festivities. This costume makes it clear daddy thinks JR is out of this world.

Lion Tamer Family CostumeLion Tamer Family

The family that trains together, stays together in this circus themed family costume with lion tamers and the cutest little lion cub you ever did see! Clearly this family made center stage with this creative costume. Perfect for children you get cold easily, this costume even includes mittens for that chilly October air.

Ace Ventura Pet Detective CostumeAce Ventura Pet Detective

What better way to show off that your toddler is a wacky, zany little firecracker than this Ace Ventura costume? Introducing their child to the wonderfully zany antics of everyone's favorite pet detective, this great costume was surely a bright and colorful addition to the party. The tutu is a wonderful touch for this hilarious costume.

Mama Beehive and Baby Bee CostumesMama Beehive and Baby Bee
Sent in by Jordan to our 2013 costume contest.

This Mama Beehive and Baby Bee costume turns mommy's Princess into a Queen, a Queen Bee that is. This is a great costume for babies that need to be held personally and like to be bounced. The beautiful bows will make it clear for all to see that they're in the presence of royalty.


From infants to toddlers, these imaginative costumes suit all kinds of needs. These costumes keep in mind their needs to keep JR close while costumes for older children allow for more movement. These parents know better than to just get a babysitter, they brought baby along! They surely turned heads and were the center of attention at the parties. We're sure hope everyone has a wonderfully safe and happy Halloween with costumes as inspired as these!
