Welcome to your ULTIMATE buying guide to 2017 Halloween costume ideas!
Each year, we see a whole new selection of Halloween costumes and each year, moms and dads shop online to help their kids (or themselves) find the right costume for school, parties, and trick or treating.
This post is to help YOU get ideas for your costumes this year, whether you’re buying for yourself, your kids, or just looking for inspiration.
One of my favorite things to do is put together a homemade costume, but I don’t always have the time, supplies, or energy to do so.
And when I can’t make a costume, I’m usually ready to shop online because I’m not one for fighting the crowds in my local costume shops and party stores.
I know some of you know exactly what I’m talking about.
So, for me, the solution was easy: check out my options online. And there are a ton. Full costumes, deluxe costumes, cosplay costumes, adult costumes, kids costumes, and accessories that would allow me to put something together that was totally unique.
Now let me share my tips for shopping for a Halloween costume online as well as my top picks for a variety of styles, sizes, and looks for the whole family – even your furry friends!

How to Shop for Just the Right Halloween Costume in 2017
Shopping for Halloween costumes can be a little trickier than just shopping for regular clothes. Because it’s a popular holiday, stores everywhere sell out fast – so your first job is to shop early.
Many smart consumers start shopping in the summer before Halloween. This ensures that not only can they find the right costume as far as character or theme goes, but they can also find the right size.
Shopping online is much more convenient because most local stores don’t get their supplies in until pretty close to Halloween, and as soon as they’re there, you have to fight off crowds of other moms and dads who are set on getting their kids the right costume, too.
When you shop online, you can also shop by comparing prices and perks (like free shipping) and find lots of accessories to really bring the costume to life. You can also find plenty of consumer reviews to help you decide whether or not the costume’s right for you.
You want look for costumes that have great quality, not something that will fall to pieces the second you or your child puts it on. You might pay slightly more for better quality, but that means the costume can be worn again – which is especially important if you like to keep your child’s costume so they can use it for dress up play.
Sometimes size can be an issue when you’re shopping for Halloween costumes. Some manufacturers have them sewn so that you might need to buy a size bigger or a size smaller than what you normally wear.
That’s where consumer reviews come in handy.
Other buyers can tell you if something runs large or small. It’s also a good reason to shop early – if something’s not sized appropriately, you’ll have time to send it back for a correct fit.

2017 Halloween Costumes for Babies and Toddlers
When it comes time to buy costumes for your baby or toddler, you might find yourself buying more than one costume. They’re so cute – and you can get one for parties, one for trick or treating, and one for any professional pictures that you have taken of your little bundle of joy.
When you’re shopping for an infant, you need to make sure you get the right size – especially if it’s a bunting costume. You don’t want baby’s legs all scrunched up in the costume. So it’s very important to pay attention to sizing guides, especially when you’re shopping online.
You also want to see if it’s breathable material or nice and warm. This might make a difference, depending on where you live. You don’t want the baby getting too hot or too cold.
Here in Southern California, Halloween night can be pretty cold or really warm, so it’s challenging at times to choose well. If you’re uncertain, you can always pick a costume that’ll allow for layers so you’re prepared no matter what the weather.
Buying a costume that includes a hat or mask for a little one can pose a problem. Babies and toddlers will often get fussy when anything’s covering their faces or on top of their heads for any period of time. Keep this in mind – the last thing you want is an unhappy little one when everyone is supposed to be having a good time!
2017 Baby Bunting Costumes for Infants
There are so many precious baby bunting costumes for infants – like baby Elvis, a sunflower, peas in a pod or chili pepper, and even superhero costumes. You can also find bunting costumes for movie characters like Snow White or sports players., too

Toddler Costumes for Halloween 2017
Toddlers get to branch out a bit more. Some toddlers do great with a mask or hat – in fact, you might find it impossible to get them to take it off at the end of the night!
Animals are great choices for toddlers. They love the zoo, and getting to dress up as a roaring lion or funny monkey can be a blast. There are other fun animal options, too – like dragons and sharks!
Characters start getting fun at this age. Mickey and Minnie Mouse are always a cute option – and perfect for twin toddlers, in fact. You can buy specific colors for this – like traditional red and black or pink.
There are lots of really cute out of the box options for 2017, like a little Garden Gnome, miniature Viking, or Itty Bitty Spider. Toddler costumes are great because many of them would be good for girls or boys.
They also have a ton of character costumes for superhero movies – like the Hulk, Iron Man, Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Wolverine, and Captain America.

2017 Halloween Costumes for Girls
Once your little girl graduates out of toddler costumes, you usually have them giving more input about what kind of costume they want to wear for Halloween. Some parents buy more than one costume – one that meets with all school restrictions, and another for Halloween night when they go trick or treating.
The great thing about costumes for younger girls is that they like to play dress up, and make-believe play is a wonderful creative exercise for kids! So the costumes get plenty of use, not just for a single day of the year.
Disney princess costumes are always a hit for younger girls. They love to dress up as Cinderella, Snow White, Merida, Ariel, Jasmine, Rapunzel, and other characters. This year, Belle costumes from the movie Beauty and the Beast and Moana costumes will be hot sellers, too!

Younger girls also like to be superheroes, and not necessarily Wonder Woman! Manufacturers have turned almost any superhero costume into a girl’s option these days, so there are Spidergirl and Supergirl costumes, too. There’s even an Ironette Ironman costume for girls, since that’s been the hit superhero movie for several years in a row now.

2017 Halloween Costumes for Boys
As boys grow out of the cute toddler stage, they want to be strong, powerful, exciting characters! Sometimes they want to be funny and goofy, too! Many boys continue wanting to dress up as animals, but instead of a cute lion that Mom or Dad picked out, they might insist on choosing their own costume – like a superhero, movie character, monster, or tough guy.
Younger boys are going to be interested in dressing up as characters from their favorite movies and video games.
Popular boys costumes in 2017 include guises inspired by Cars, Despicable Me, and Star Wars.
Classic superhero costumes will never go out of style and with the boom in superhero movies featuring Batman, Captain America, Iron Man, Superman, and more, you have some great choices this year. Plus, many of these costumes have accessories you can purchase that make it even more fun for kids!

2017 Halloween Costumes for Work
When you’re at work, dressing up for Halloween can be a little tricky. You really don’t want to go with something too sexy or flirty (or vulgar) because it is a place of business.
Sure, you need to be modest, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun! Remember the show, The Office? Jim was infamous for his simple costumes, like a “Hi, My Name Is Dave” sticker or three dots on his shirt to reflect a “three hole punch.”
Some people have sticky-noted themselves for their costume. An entire head to toe Sticky Note costume would be really cute, but you’d need to calculate about how many packs you’d need to cover your entire body (and take extra to work in case a few fall off).
Your boss may want you to choose a costume that can easily be removed for important meetings that day, so costume make-up may or may not be an option. And you want to make sure that you’re comfortable in your costume, or that you take back-up clothes to change out of.make sure that you’re comfortable in your costume, or that you take back-up clothes to change out of.
Some people like to dress up as office supplies or things you might find around an office. This might include dressing up as a cubicle, a paper shredder, a stapler, etc.
There are some brave souls who will go to work that day dressed as their boss. This can be funny or get you into a lot of trouble, depending on what your boss thinks of it. 🙂
DIY costumes for work are great and let you get really creative. But if you just want to purchase something ready-made that’s a good fit for the office or on-the-job, I’ve found some good ones to check out.

Cheap Versus Expensive Halloween Costumes in 2017
When you’re shopping for costumes this Halloween season, consider whether you want to splurge or save your money. If you splurge, then you’re going to find many high-end costumes online that are extremely realistic and fun to wear.
Some have all kinds of technology built into them to bring them to life – and of course, you’ll pay a small fortune to get one of these. It will be worth it if you’re going to a big party, plan to wear it again in the years to come, or have the money to spend and just want to have some fun!
Some people have to get a costume on a small budget, and you can find all sorts of elements for Halloween that help you turn your own attire into a costume without officially buying a full one.
For example, you can invest in a simple mask and wear your own clothes. You want a mask that looks realistic and is comfortable for you to wear throughout the day.
A wig and simple accessories like sunglasses, jewelry, and other details can help you create a costume on your own. Same goes for make-up – put on some costume make-up and you can be almost anything – vampire, zombie – you name it!
One year my nephew wanted to be a werewolf and all he did was don a white t-shirt, jacket, and jeans and he got the coolest werewolf mask and hands. He could take off the mask when he wanted and put it right back on.
One year, maybe four years ago, I purchased a “Pink Lady” jacket, cat eye sunglasses, and a scarf and I wore my own black top and denim capris. So easy and so comfortable, too.”Pink Lady” jacket, cat eye sunglasses, and a scarf and I wore my own black top and denim capris. So easy and so comfortable, too.

2017 Halloween Costumes for Dogs and Cats
On Halloween, it’s not just men, women and children dressing up as their favorite characters – it’s pets, too! Now some pets hate wearing costumes. They’ll sit there after you put it on them pouting in a corner of the room until it’s removed.
Others love the attention and go about their business happily playing, no matter what they look like! The most important thing is that the costume you choose is safe and comfortable for your pet.
Whether you’re getting a costume for a dog, cat, or even a bird, it needs to meet both of those requirements before you make your animal friend put it on for awhile.
There are some amazing dog costumes – probably because man’s best friend is more amenable to wearing one than a cat or a bird is. Check out the various Animal Planet dinosaur costumes that turn Fido into T-Rex or a Triceratops for the day.
You can also find superhero costumes, sharks, and a really cute one where it looks like a miniature cowboy is riding on the back of your four-legged friend.
Cats are harder to buy for, but not impossible. Some pet owners put one accessory on their cat, like a crown hat to show who really rules the roost. Others get full body costumes, like the one that turns your cat into a dog – but be forewarned that may not go over well with your cat.
You might see costumes sold online for birds, too. Just be careful because this can be frightening for some birds and they might break a wing or become frantic trying to remove the costume. Better to give them some fun “setting” accessories and PhotoShop an outfit onto them if you wish!
Halloween Costumes for 2017
Halloween costumes this year are already starting to sell. There’s no such thing as “too soon” to buy what you need – because you may wake up one day ready to buy and be told, “Sorry, we’re out!”
So you’re not only racing the clock that way, but you also want to buy with plenty of time to get your purchases shipped to your home, whether you’re getting a ready-made costume or you’re getting accessories for your homemade DIY Halloween costume.
If you’re in a real pinch, remember that you get a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime and that can be a lifesaver if you need a last-minute Halloween costume (not to mention that you get free 2-day shipping for a whole year and lots of other perks if you decide to become a member!)
