Halloween Costume Ideas
2014 Halloween costume trends
Braids are going to be everywhere on Halloween night. Entirely unsurprisingly, Frozen characters are the single-biggest Halloween-costume trend this year. Expect to see plenty of Annas, Elsas and Olafs at your door. There are tons of design options at various costume outlets; these are from CostumeCraze.com.
Tween girls get into the inspired-by-the-movies act with a villain-chic Maleficent get-up. It's a popular choice, already out of stock at several sites yet still available (for now — and online only) at SpiritHalloween.com.
And Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are the top choices for boys, though all purchased
options include masks for which you may want to substitute face makeup, to help the kids see clearly as they traipse from house to house. Find Rocket, Star-Lord and Groot over at BuyCostumes.com. Turtle Donnie's available online only at SpiritHalloween.
As polished as store-bought costumes can be, there’s something about a DIY Halloween costume that charms like no other. Below are five of our faves. See these cuties — a garden gnome, Despicable Me minions, Minecrafts Steve, "Raining Cats & Dogs" and cotton candy — plus quick-hit tutorials, on our DIY costume board at Pinterest.com/MetroKidsmag.
