Halloween is a few months away yet (boo!), but it is NEVER too early to get a jump on your 2015 Halloween costume. Sure, the classic looks are always fun, but trends matter when it comes to Halloween costumes for kids. Some costumes will be popular for a long time and others might only be popular for a year, but "what's cool NOW" typically weighs heavily on the mind of a young boy or girl.
The big question is: what will be some of the most popular Halloween Costumes of 2015? We’ve compiled a list of ideas that we think will be the most in-demand kid’s costumes this year so you can get a jump start on your Halloween shopping.
Ultron Costume Black Widow Costume
Captain America Costume Iron Man Costume
Hulk Costume Thor Costume Hawkeye Costume
Superheroes are always popular, and this is especially true when a new movie is released. With a new film comes new costume designs and this year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is no exception. The newest Avengers rendition was a big hit on the silver screen and what kid could give up the chance to be as awesome as Iron Man or better yet, the Hulkbuster for Halloween?
Boys Minion Costume Girls Minion Costume Kevin Minion Costume
Bob Minion Costume Child Minion Jumper
Ever since Gru introduced us to his Minions in the first Despicable Me movie, we have gone crazy over the little rabble-rousers. With the Minions movie set for release in July, you can bet you will see a Minion costume (or a hundred) out on Halloween night ready to paint the town red yellow.
Star Wars Costumes
Star Wars Rebels Ezra Costume Boba Fett Costume Toddler Yoda Costume
Darth Vader Costume Stormtrooper Costume
It’s no secret that there is a new Star Wars movie coming out in December. With Star Wars Rebels on television, kids these days are still huge fans of the fabled series and its characters. While we don’t have specific Star Wars: The Force Awakens costumes in stock quite yet, they are coming and your kids will want to be one of the first ones to get their hands on them!
Inside Out Costumes
Disgust Costume Joy Costume Anger Costume
Every moment of our lives is regulated by some type of emotion. The new animated film, Inside Out, narrates the life of a young girl from inside her head. Since the movie hasn’t hit theaters yet, we are still a bit unfamiliar with the characters. However, the five emotions that will likely become popular costumes this year are Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, and Disgust. Which emotion will describe you this Halloween?
Rocket Raccoon Costume Toddler Wonder Woman Costume
Spider-Man Costume Batman Costume
Violet Incredibles Costume Superman Costume
Since the beginning of comic book time, superheroes have been a pop culture staple for people of all ages. Many of the comics have been transformed into movies and television shows, resulting in kids incorporating superhero personas into their creative playtime. Quite often, that desire to fight crime and save the day will translate to Halloween, so if you buy one superhero costume for your child, don’t expect it to be your last!
Elsa Prestige Costume Anna Coronation Costume
Olaf Costume Elsa Costume Anna Costume
The Frozen wave that consumed the nation last year still hasn’t fizzled out, and the famous Disney movie will arguably be a trending Halloween costume again in 2015. With the release of the Frozen Fever short and the announcement of Frozen 2, the nation hasn’t been able to "Let it Go." If your child desperately wants an Elsa costume for Halloween, the good news is we've got 'em, and she will likely wear it time and time again!
Ninja Turtles Costumes
Leonardo Costume Shredder Costume Toddler Donatello Costume
Raphael Tutu Costume Michelangelo Costume
Whether it is in live action or cartoon form, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been around for quite some time. Luckily, Ninja Turtles costumes are always a popular choice so you can use them year after year and pass them down from one child to the next. Now for the hard part: which Ninja Turtle and style of costume is the best? It’s okay, we can’t choose either.
Yoshi Costume Princess Peach Costume Toad Costume
Mario Costume Toddler Luigi Costume Bowser Costume
Girls Mario Costume Luigi Costume
We first met Mario (originally named Jumpman) in the 1981 Donkey Kong arcade game. In 1982, he was given the name Mario and became known for his missions to save Princess Toadstool (Princess Peach) from Bowser. To this day, he’s still the main face of Nintendo games and continues to be a popular icon along with his brother, Luigi. If you’re looking for a group costume for all your children, this franchise provides the perfect combinations.
