The Top 10 Best Kids’ Costumes for 2015
Last time, we shared our inside info about the best Halloween costumes for adults this year. Today, it’s all about the kids.
If you’ve got kids that can’t wait to go out trick-or-treating, or if you’ve got kids that are too young for trick-or-treating but can still facilitate your own candy gathering endeavors, then these are the trendiest, cutest, and most fun children’s costumes for Halloween 2015.
#10. Iron Man
The Avengers: Age of Ultron
Tony Stark is the leader of The Avengers, and his suit of Iron Man armor is strong enough to go head-to-head to even the toughest of villains. He needed a special Hulk Buster version at one point, but the Hulk is the Hulk, after all. Learn more about Iron Man and Iron Man costumes here.
When trouble arises in the city of Adventure Bay, it’s up to Chase the police puppy to sniff out the bad guys. This one’s particularly great for toddlers and smaller kids – there’s even a version of this Chase costume that comes complete with his police car!
#8. Indominus Rex
Jurassic World was one of the best movies of 2015 not just for its amazing visual effects, but because it served as a nostalgia trip for parents as well as brand new, epic adventure for kids. The Indominus Rex is the genetically modified “super dinosaur” from the movie that, predictably, causes a few problems here and there.
#7. Darth Vader
With the new Star Wars movie, Episode VII: The Force Awakens, coming up at the end of 2015, villains like Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma of The First Order are going to take their places as the new faces of the Dark Side. Darth Vader will always be the most iconic Star Wars villain to us, though.
Big Hero 6
Baymax from the movie Big Hero 6 was one of our top picks for adult Halloween costumes this year, too. This version of the Baymax costume has armor, though, which Hiro creates to give his squishy, air-filled friend a little extra firepower. Baymax’s armor can also fly with jet thrusters, because it’s awesome.
#5. Master Chief
He’s back – the Energy Sword wielding, plasma grenade sticking, ultimate Spartan soldier known as Master Chief returns to Xboxes and PCs everywhere with Halo 5: Guardians in 2015. He’s also up against a new, bigger, badder enemy this time around, but we’re not about to let any spoilers out of the bag.
Pixar‘s Inside Out has been called one of their best movies of all time, and we’re talking about the studio that also made the Toy Story movies. It’s a story about emotions, personified into cute characters. Disgust‘s sassy and funny attitude makes her our pick for best Inside Out Halloween costume, but you also can’t go wrong with Joy or Anger.
#3. Captain America
Avengers: Age of Ultron
Captain America is one of our favorite Marvel superheroes, and he’s a favorite among kids, too. Not only does he have his own movie series, but he’s a key part of the Avengers, too. Plus, with the final Captain America movie, Civil War, coming out in 2016, Captain America is as popular as ever.
The Dark Knight Trilogy
Sometimes, you just can’t beat the classics. Batman made his debut in DC’s Golden Age of Comics in the 1940s, but he’s still every bit as popular with kids today thanks to cartoons like Brave and the Bold and video games like the Batman: Arkham series.
Remember how Frozen costumes were everywhere last Halloween? Well, Disney’s Descendants is the new Frozen, and Mal is the new Elsa. She’s the daughter of the villain Maleficent, and this is Mal’s outfit from the Isle of the Lost. She’s our top costume pick for kids, and her best friend Evie is a great choice, too.
