So we are FINALLY entering the best time of year (despite the summer heat refusing to budge) and that means it's time to break out the cozy sweaters, the pumpkin spice, and the horror movie downloads.
We're in HALLOWEEN SEASON, baby! Finally, I Love Halloween's favorite season has come around.
Now for adults like myself, Halloween usually means getting drunk while wearing skimpy outfits, but little kids haven't been corrupted by this woeful world of ours. They like the simple pleasures of wandering through neighborhoods and shopping malls, scoring candy, and wearing outfits based the most popular licensed characters of the day.
Well, we at I Love Halloween navigate the rough waters of pop culture to bring you the most cool and compelling costumes that your kids would love.
T'Challa, head of the futuristic African republic of Wakanda and member of the Avengers, was the star of one of the biggest superhero movies of all time. This costume is going to be big on the Halloween streets this year.
Fortnite Dark Voyager
Odds are your kids are right now playing Fortnite.
This game, a combination of Minecraft's building mechanics and Battleground's king of the hill shooter mechanics, has beat out all similar games for its frantic action and bright, colorful characters. It's like a lighthearted cartoon version of The Hunger Games. The Dark Voyager is one of the signature characters.
Jeff the Killer
For the macabre child, Jeff the Killer is a creepypasta (an online horror story shared virally) about a disfigured young man who whispers "go to sleep" to his victims before he kills them. It's a gruesome horror story and one of my favorite new monsters.
Another Fortnite signature character, the Bride Bomber captures the colorful and playful spirit of the game. It's a great costume combining bright cheerful colors and kick ass commando chic.
The headstrong daughter of the legendary Count Dracula has become the new goth icon thanks to her starring turn in the Hotel Transylvania series. Now your kid can have a great halloween sharing in her vampire adventures.
Straight out of the long-awaited and very popular Incredibles 2, this is the costume warmed by Violet, the eldest child with the power of invisibility and force field generation. She's a great icon from a fantastic superhero series.
One of Spirit's signature line of elegant and scary costumes, this costume will make your sweet and beautiful child into a merciless creature of the night!
The paranormal fiend that stalks the streets of London comes alive in this spectacular Victorian themed costume. It's a great companion piece for two kids with a gruesome streak.
One of my favorite creepy costumes, this eerie outfit is evocative of movies like Annabelle. Pair it with a fake knife and a badly damaged teddy bear and your child will look so scary that the school psychologists will be knocking a path down your door.
Baby's first Halloween will be a spooktacular delight with this adorable jack-o-lantern costume! Make their first excursion into this sacred night a memorable moment.
