Favorite Kids' Halloween Costumes

Kids' Halloween Costumes

While grown-ups attending Halloween parties lean towards movie action and spooky costumes—witch, vampire, ghost—for their Halloween dress-up fun, kids look to pop culture for their inspiration. TV, movie, and cartoon/comic book characters are popular among kids.

Not surprisingly, the desire to be a princess for Halloween is too strong for many little girls to resist. Almost 12% of girls chose to dress as princesses a couple of years ago, and another 3% wanted to look like the Disney princess character.
