Expanding: Unique Costume Ideas for Kids

Every Halloween, I'd see the usual witches and superheroes, and think, 'Why not get a bit more unique this year?' So, for parents looking to add a touch of local flair or just a sprinkle of uniqueness to their kid's costumes, here are some ideas that are close to home and sure to bring the candies in!

Filipino Aswangs:

We Filipinos have a variety of supernatural characters in our folklore, each more fascinating than the next. This Halloween, transform these sometimes-feared creatures into cute costumes for our young ones. An all-brown outfit can be turned into a Tikbalang costume, an all-white dress can easily be transformed into a White Lady, and a Tiyanak is a no-brainer! Dress up your baby in all white, splatter some food-grade red and brown dye on the outfit, and ruffle up their hair!

Popular Pinoy Memes

When it comes to memes, magaling tayong mga pinoy diyan.  For example, chose a popular meme such as the "Bakit Malungkot ang Beshy Ko?".  Then dig up a white top and gray shorts and let your kid, if old enough, do cartwheels! If not, you can carry them as if they're tumbling for that full "kasi, malungkot ang lola mo" effect!

Your fave emojis ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜ญ:

Emojis are a language of their own these days! Dressing your child up as their favorite emoji is super simple. A yellow outfit, with the face's expression painted or sewn on, does the trick. The heart-eyes, laughing tears, or even the cheeky wink โ€“ pick your child's mood!

Dress Up as a Song

You can dress your kid up as your favorite songs, for example, inspired by the hit Filipino song, "Tala" by Sarah Geronimo, dress your child in a sparkling star-themed outfit. Think shimmering blues and silvers, with star patterns. Add a DIY star wand or crown, and your little one is all set to shine bright like a "Tala"!

Your Kids' Favorite Character!

May it be an animal, a superhero, or a cartoon character; dressing up your child as their favorite persona can be exciting. See their eyes light up every time they catch their reflection. Maybe they're wild about tigers or adore a specific superhero โ€“ harness that enthusiasm for a memorable Halloween outfit!

Remember, always prioritize safety and comfort. Avoid small parts that can be swallowed, ensure the costume is made of breathable materials, and is easy to take off when needed. Strings can easily get knotted, so avoid those too.  And after a day of Halloween fun, when it's time to clean up, Tender Careยฎ Head to Toe Baby Wash and Shampoo is ideal to cleanse and refresh your young one, ensuring their skin remains soft and fragrant.
