Are you tired of stuffing your child into the same, tired costume? Fear not! Here are some wonderfully geeky alternatives sure to be the conversation starter for that perfect accessory: your child. (Can ya tell I’m not a parent yet?!)
Now I can understand your hesitation as the star of Child’s Play is certainly no laughing matter, but the perfect age to dress as Chucky is toddler age. Why is this? Well, those first fumbling steps can be seen from afar as the halting gait of the doll faced Buddy Doll and if you search your local Halloween stores thoroughly, your wee one can be wielding an oversized fake butcher knife for maximum scaring. Aside from all the fun you can have with unsuspecting party goers, this costume is light on the wallet as overalls can be found at any thrift store, along with striped shirt and shoes!
Just can’t get enough of Final Fantasy? Break out that retired White Mage cosplay and pair it with this fan favorite! Known primarily for their way of speaking, general helpfulness for the weary traveler, and love of synthesizing, these little guys are also a quick and easy costume fix. Modify any fuzzy off white onesie with a pair of ears and purple wings, affix a bright red pom pom of some sort and voila, instant Moogle.
Let’s be honest. Halloween is just another reason for us all to dust off our costumes from the last convention and I’m sure many of you dads out there have a Deadpool suit hanging around, begging for one more go. What better way to convince the wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/partner/whatever, than to come armed with your adorable, rosy cheeked child dressed as the best food on earth? This can also work as Lady Deadpool, or any member of the Deadpool family!
