Fun and Appropriate Kids Halloween Costumes for School

By: Robert

With the recent trend in Halloween costumes leaning towards sexier designs, it can be hard to find an appropriate (but fun) Halloween costume for your child. If you need to find a fun Halloween costume for your child to wear to school, here are some ideas for finding that coveted costume.

Travel the Seven Seas with These Halloween Costumes
If your kids love Pirates of the Caribbean, they'll love wearing pirate costumes when they go trick-or-treating. This is a tricky area because there are a lot of sexy pirate costumes - definitely not an ideal kids Halloween costume for budding youngsters. Avoid running into these Halloween costumes by visiting stores that cater to kids costumes, or visit online Halloween costume sites that have kids sections. Jack Sparrow costumes are popular with kids right now, so you won't have any trouble finding boy-themed pirate costumes. Girls are a trickier area, but stick with pirate kids Halloween costumes with full body coverage. Add a fun accessory, such as a rubber sword or a fake parrot.

Inspiration's Only an RPG Away
If your kids love playing video games, they'll love to wear fun cosplay costumes. These are gorgeous, appropriate kids Halloween costumes your children can wear to school and for trick-or-treating. Big themes: RPGs, Anime-influenced video games, and lots of color. A lot of kids like the evil Sephiroth of Final Fantasy 7 fame, and other daintier kids will love dressing as Yuna, the pure-hearted summoner from Final Fantasy 10. All isn't clean in this world, however - some of these numbers aren't appropriate for kids. Lulu, another character from Final Fantasy 10, is a very provocative black mage that little kids should not emulate. Kuja isn't appropriate for youngsters either, so make sure you know how these characters look like before buying.

Sneak Into Halloween Like a True Ninja
Do your kids love Japanese culture? Then they'll love wearing ninja kids Halloween costumes! Ninja Halloween costumes are a fun, ethnic way to go trick-or-treating. If your daughter wants to partake in ninja costuming, there are tons of options for her too, including cute pink ninja Halloween costumes. Some adult costumers want to sexualize this genre of costuming, but it's hasn't taken off, making it easier for you to find fun and appropriate ninja wear for your little tikes. Add some fun accessories, such as fake knives or daggers, to their wardrobe so they're fully "ninja-approved."

Halloween Fun with Disney
Here's something all kids love - Disney characters! Kids will have fun dressing up as their favorite Disney characters, and it's a fun way to celebrate Halloween. Girls especially love emulating their favorite princess, such as Aurora or Cinderella. Better yet, they're very appropriate for a long Halloween outing. Boys will love dressing up as Aladdin, Tarzan, or the almighty Hercules, and you can spice up these kids Halloween costumes with a matching wig. Disney has always worked to give our kids clean, appropriate entertainment, and although that doesn't extend to their real-life stars, it extends to their characters.

It's hard finding appropriate, fun kids Halloween costumes, but veering towards fun, child-approved interests eliminates the need to watch out less than appropriate Halloween wear. Your tikes can enjoy trick or treating while wearing cool kids Halloween costumes too - and you won't need to stress out about it.
