Great review on boys 2017 Halloween costumes. You’re right…kids do like to dress up. We’ve always had a cedar chest full of dress up clothes and kids don’t like to wait for Halloween to dress up either. In fact, our neighbor’s son wore his spider man suit every day for a month.
I’m bookmarking this page for future reference.
Haha… that’s so fun! I can just imagine all of the neighbourhood having a good chuckle at glimpsing Spider-Man playing on his bike or the swings! We love playing dress up here too! My daughter is huge into her fancy new Queen Elsa dress that she earned for doing her chores cheerfully and quickly… (AWESOME motivator haha). She would wear it EVERYWHERE if I let her! (I have a hilarious picture of her wearing it shucking corn for dinner LOL).
I remember as a very young boy how much I looked forward to Halloween. Like you’ve mentioned choosing the costume is just as fun as actually wearing it on the big day.
I remember all of friends bragging to each other about what we were going to be. These were some of the best memories of my childhood.
I think you’ve done an amazing job at providing some really cool costumes for this crowd. Things don’t need to be gore related to be awesome. For starters the Harry Potter costume is by far the coolest one on this list. Too, bad he wasn’t around when I was young because I would have been him every single year.
I remember being a ninja my on multiple Halloweens. This was about the time that Power Rangers were actually cool and not what they are now LOL.
Thanks for putting this awesome article together. You’ve made my life quite a bit easier. My nephews are quite crazy about a few of these characters already.
First off, thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I’m so happy that you enjoyed reading this post – and that it brought back so many great memories for you!
I loved Halloween as a child. My mom did a fantastic job helping us make great costumes every year – and now that I have my own kids, I’m right back into the fun again! Even writing this post I got a whole bunch of ideas for my own kids – and myself! Maybe I’ll have to get myself one of these costumes and dress up to take them Trick or Treating! That’d be a riot!
I’m guessing we’re close to the same age as I know exactly what you mean about “when Power Rangers were actually cool”… and being ninjas… my brothers were ALL OVER that too!
Cheers! And hope you have fun with your nephews this Halloween!
That Jurassic world costume is awesome! Why is it only a 3.7/5? Is it because it feels bulky? I would like to get one for myself and my son so we’d be matching dinosaurs. 🙂
I also notice that there are two firefighter costumes here. Why is that? And I didn’t know that Melissa and Doug sold costumes. My wife and I are big fans for their toys.
Oh! I just thought of an idea with the Harry Potter costume. Since my daughter’s name is Hermione, it might be the perfect idea to get her to dress up as Hermione and my son as Harry or Ron. But then, my daughter does not know who Harry Potter is. What do you think?
Thanks for sharing this.
Thanks for writing in! The 2 firefighter costumes are actually different… the one is a genuine “Firefighter” (Melissa and Doug one), and the other is a costume of Marshall, the Fire Rescue Pup from PAW Patrol (the kids tv show). Both would be huge hits I think!
I think the matching dinosaurs idea is HILARIOUS. I’d be tempted to “reward” any kid who came dressed up as a dinosaur like this one double candy! I think it’s a 3.7/5 stars because it’s not the easiest costume to get around in for some kids. Some kids also don’t like having something around their faces – meaning lower “marks”.
As for your question about Hermione, I saw a fabulous pic of a family costume where the Dad dressed up as Hagrid, and his 3 small children were Harry, Ron, and Hermione. It was AWESOME! To me, Halloween is for the kids though – would your daughter LIKE the costume? Or would her little heart be broken that she can’t go as a Princess (or firefighter… last year my daughter had her heart set on being just that).
Cheers! Have a great day!
