Children's Halloween Costumes

October 15, 2010

Tony Forbes from The Children's Place has some tips when choosing to buy a costume.


  • Each costume and accessory should be made from comfortable, breathable fabrics that never itch or irritate.
  • Everything should be machine-washable and ultra-durable so the costumes last long after the trick-or-treating is over-- which means parents can save the costumes for little brother/sister.
  • Parents won't break the bank at the Children's Place: all costumes range from $22.50 - $29.50.
  • Cat--$24.50

  • This youthful dress is on trend with its tutu skirt and leopard print top—complete with pink accents to keep the costume age appropriate.
  • The two-piece costume comes with cat ears to complete the look.
  • Also comes in little girls sizes so little sister can match big sister
  • Witch--$24.50

  • This bold dress has a bodice detailed with spider web mesh and rickrack trim for an authentic witch's look.
  • The two-piece costume comes with a witch's hat to complete the look.
  • Satin sleeves have elasticized cuffs for increased comfort.
  • Ballerina--$22.50

  • Cotton jersey and a touch of spandex give this ballerina a soft stretchy suit to dance in.
  • The tulle skirt and t-shirt are connected to keep things simple-- and the tights tie off the look with ballerina slippers!
  • Vampire-$29.50

  • This unique design has an antique appearance that gives this vampire a touch of old school charm; vampire teeth included!
  • Spider $22.50

  • Hook-and-loop closures at the shoulders and inseam allow for easy changing—the hat has self covered elastic around the face and chin for a comfortable fit that stays on.
  • The body suit compliments the costume perfectly—and you can add a pair of pants if needed.
  • Knit pants are great as they're prewashed so they are totally comfy.
