Mommy and Son Halloween Costumes
Ariel and Sebastian Costume
Dressing up as classic Disney characters is always a great idea. This is why if you loved The Little Mermaid as a child, you should consider dressing as Ariel and Sebastian with your baby boy.
Simply choose a seashell top and a sparkly skirt or a costume tail, and opt for a super cute crab outfit for your baby boy. You don’t have to make things too complicated, a pair of red pants, a red hoodie, a crab hat and a pair of red shoes or socks would be more than fine!
Personally, I dressed my daughter up as Ariel at 5 months old. Then, I went as flounder (I just wore a fleece hat a made to look like a fish) and my husband wore a shark fin that we got in the dollar section at target. Simple and fun for sure 🙂
Minnie and Mickey Mouse Costume
Here is another cartoon-inspired costume idea: dress up as Minnie and Mickey Mouse with your son.
Buy for yourself a Minnie Mouse outfit or create one on your own. How? Just wear a black t-shirt and a red skirt with white polka dots. Plus, add a pair of yellow high heels and a Minnie Mouse ear headband. That’s all!
When it comes to your little one, add on him a black onesie/t-shirt (depending on his age), a pair of red shorts, a hat with Mickey Mouse ears (or ear headband), and yellow socks.

Velma and Scooby-Doo Costume
Velma and Scooby-Doo are perfect costume options for Halloween. Put together your Velma outfit using the following items: an orange turtleneck sweater, a red skater skirt, a pair of black glasses, orange knee-high socks, red shoes, a magnifying glass, and a short brown bob wig with bangs. Of course, if you find it easier, you can order a pre-packaged Velma costume so you don’t have to spend time looking for all these items.
Where’s Waldo Costume
Are you looking for last-minute mommy and me costumes? Then you will love this cute Where’s Waldo outfit idea because it won’t take you too much time to prepare it. All you need is a red-and-white-striped t-shirt, a matching bobble hat, and glasses for both you and your little one. Super easy, right?
Plus, this costume is a great choice if you are bored of dressing up like everyone else (most people stay at the classic mummy, skeleton, or witch costumes) for trick or treating.
Paleontologist and Dinosaur Costume
If your child loves dinosaurs, let them wear a dinosaur costume this Halloween. You can simply order dino costume online or if you think you can do it, sew one on your own.

However, if you are not so good at crafts or you don’t have time for a sewing project, you can still buy some ready-to-wear mermaid costumes.
Wilma and Betty/Pebbles Costume
Do you remember the classic cartoon called The Flintstones? Go back to the Stone Age and transform yourself into Wilma Flintstone and Betty Rubble with your daughter. – If your daughter is at baby age, then she can dress even as Pebbles Flintstone!
Plus, if your husband would like to be part of the fun as well, he can choose a Fred Flintstone outfit for himself. One thing is sure: the family would look lovely together dressed like a modern Stone Age family.
These costumes can be easy to make at home with the right supplies. So if you have a little creativity, here is a great tutorial to check out.
Professor McGonagall and Hermione Costume
If you want to play it safe, dressing up as one of the characters appearing in the Harry Potter movies is always a crowd pleaser. While most people think about Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, or Albus Dumbledore as the main options to choose from, there are so many other great characters in the movie you could consider as well. Just think about the amazing Professor Minerva McGonagall, the head of Gryffindor House.
Fortunately, you don’t have to give up your idea of dressing as one of the Harry Potter characters just because you prefer Mommy and me costumes. You can dress with your daughter as Professor McGonagall (black dress, green cloak over the shoulders, a hat, and replica wand) and Hermione. Most likely, you will have great success at the Halloween party!
Morticia and Wednesday Addams Costume
