11 Fun Halloween Costume Ideas for Girls

Halloween is definitely one of my favorite holidays, and this post will be full of Halloween costume ideas for girls. This post was fun for me to put together because it features all the costumes my own daughter has dressed-up in over the past years…

2. Mal from Disney’s “The Descendants”

Here’s my daughter as the Mal character from “The Descendants” movie on the Disney Channel. For the eye-shadow, I actually used lipstick instead to ensure it was bright enough. Because sometimes it’s difficult for eye-shadow to show up so vibrantly. My cheat is to use lipstick instead.

3. Britney Spears

Here’s my daughter as 3 different versions of Britney Spears… I actually have a separate post detailing these specific 3 costumes better here if you were curious.

Most of the items I used for these costumes I was able to find offline. But some online links that might help you piece together these Britney Spears kids costumes for yourself are below:

4. Ariana Grande

My daughter was a size 3 in youth shoes at the time, and I had no luck finding any kids boots that either looked like this or that they would fit her. So the best I could do was find these women boots from Amazon as a size 6. They were a bit big for her but it worked for the costume and should last a couple more years if needed for other costumes. The boots in this image (as well as various colors and sizes) can be bought on Amazon if interested (link below).

And we also got the hair extensions for the ponytail from Amazon. My daughter has very thick hair, so we actually used TWO of these hair extension packages to be able to cover her natural hair sufficiently. We got the longest length of 30in. The ponytail extensions we used can be bought here:

And Iโ€™m not going to leave the link where I got the oversized sweater from since I didnโ€™t have a great experience with the order. Basically, the shipment originated from China and took FOREVER to arrive, so I donโ€™t really want to refer anyone else to it and risk the order not being received in time for Halloween or another costume event. But really, any oversized sweater should work for this look โ€“ you might already have one in your closet and can skip buying another one. ๐Ÿ™‚

5. Jem and the Holograms, or a Pop-Star / Rock-Star

Here’s my daughter as Jem from “Jem and the Holograms” – only the best 80’s cartoon series ever created. Or, if you’re like 99% of the world and not familiar with that specific character, it can also be a generic pop-star or rock-star look…

  1. I love how some of these are very generic (how many Anna and Elsas do you see each year), while others are very specific. The phases of Britney are great! And my daughter now wants to be Gem for Carnival

  2. These are all such cute costume ideas! Sadly we live in the cold and snowsuits go over all of our costumes. But that doesnโ€™t stop us from dressing up all year around! Thanks for sharing
