Spooky season is upon us, and if you’ve got a new little pumpkin in your family patch, you’re probably thinking about playing dress up for Halloween. To help, we’ve scoured Instagram for some of the cutest, cleverest costumes for newborns and their parents. Best of all, these costumes can be created in-house by crafty DIYers.
Baby President and Secret Service Parents Costumes
Politics may be more controversial with every year, but can we all agree that the cutest president is a baby president? Francesca Soldà and her family came up with this adorable and hysterical costume last year with a little cardboard and a whole lot of creativity.
Baby Abu with Aladdin and Princess Jasmine costumes
California-based blogger Valentina Chavero transformed a comfy baby jumper into a mini monkey suit by adding craft foam ears, tail, and fez. Et voila! A family of Aladdin costumes was born! You don’t even need a genie to recreate the design, just your imagination and some arts and crafts supplies.
Sushi Roll Toddler Costume
Imaginative Ontario designer Ninin Adique disguised her daughter Nina as a sushi roll complete with chopsticks in her hair and a felt soy sauce trick or treating bag. I could eat her up, she’s so cute!
Little Old Lady Baby Costume
Irish artist Laura Ruffett pulled together this little old lady costume with cotton balls and a teeny tiny sweater and skirt ensemble. This is just about the funniest costume I’ve ever seen, and part of its beauty is the simplicity of it.
OMG It’s Steve Urkel Newborn Costume
Okay. So we’re going to have to call a tie between Little Old Lady Baby and Baby Urkel because this is pretty dang funny. This clever costume by Filipinix creative R. Glorioso requires only the addition of suspenders and construction paper glasses to bring cool nerd Steve Urkel back to the spotlight where he belongs.
Baby Pasta Bowl Costume
Mama mia! Would you look at this bowl of spaghetti!? This brilliant baby costume by business consultant Leslie Klatt warms the heart and makes the tummy rumble with the simplest of ingredients: yarn and a happy baby!
