The Artist

The perfect outfit for the creative little...or one who likes to make messes!

What You Need:

  • Oversized button-up shirt (denim or white)
  • Black tights
  • Optional: beret or bandana
  • Paint brush

Make An Artist Palette

Find a piece of cardboard, and outline the shape of a painter's palette, with a pencil. If you're not sure or uncomfortable, feel free to outline a dinner plate.

Cut out the shape, from the cardboard. Trace a smaller circle a few inches in from the edge, to make a thumb piece.

Spray paint the palette, if you want. Otherwise, add dabs of paint, and you're ready-to-go!

The Mummy

As far as littlespace Halloween costumes go, you can never go wrong with a mummy.

What You Need:

  • White t-shirt
  • White leggings/tighter pants
  • Optional: White t-shirt
  • Old white cloth

Making It a Wrap

While you could use toilet paper, I definitely recommend using old strips of cloth. TP rips easily--especially if it gets wet...and then your costume's ruined.

The best types of cloth are an old sheet or t-shirts. Throw on some white leggings and a white t-shirt, and add in a pair of white shoes, too, if possible.

From there, toss on some dust and dirt to the cloths, for extra effect. Wrap yourself up, make sure to secure it, and you're ready!

The Scarecrow

Arguably the most OG of all DDlg Halloween costumes mentioned here, the scarecrow is a cinch to put together.

What You Need:

  • An old pair of jeans (preferably with holes or a patch)
  • Flannel or denim shirt
  • Floppy brown hat
  • Straw

Stuff It Up Scare-Crow Style

All you have to do is throw on your jeans, shirt, and hat. Then add some straw around your wrists, ankles, and neck, to make it extra authentic!

If you hate the idea of the scratchiness of straw, try some raffia instead.

The Athlete/The Sports Fan

Deep down, many littles have a jock bug somewhere--so let your inner-athlete shine.

What You Need:

  • Jersey or t-shirt
  • Black leggings or sweatpants
  • Hat or visor
  • Optional: Cleats, sweat bands, eye black, bat, racket

Swing For the Fences

Because there are so many different sports out there, you can get super creative with your look. Whether you're aiming for a professional player or something more amateur, there are plenty of options, like:

  • Referee
  • Rec league player
  • Dorky athlete
  • Cheerleader

...and loads more. You have tons of leeway with this, so you can really have fun.

The Ghost

If "ready-in-a-snap" sounds up your alley, then a ghost is your perfect Halloween look.

What You Need:

  • Old white sheet
  • Construction paper "chains"
  • Optional: battery-operated lantern

Simple Can Be The Best

Stress-free costumes are always an amazing choice--but you don't have to skimp out in the awesomeness department.

Take an old sheet and place it evenly over your head. Mark where your eyes are and cut out holes. Make a few tears here-and-there, too, for a more authentic look.

To make the chains, you'll beed some black construction paper.

  1. Cut the paper vertically into 1" strips
  2. Staple together one piece
  3. Take the next piece and loop it through the middle of the first piece, stapling the ends together
  4. Repeat until you've created a long enough chain to wear.

Once completed, throw on your sheet, slip your hands into the end rings, and BOOM; done.

    You'll need:

    • Headband
    • Pipe cleaners
    • Pom pons
    • Optional: hot glue

    Put the headband on, in front of a mirror. Lightly fold a pipe cleaner in-half, and move it along the length of the headband, until you find the "right" spot (it's totally up to you).

    Slide the headband between the two-sides of the pipe cleaner, and twist until secure. Spread the arms out. Keep them straight, or curl them.

    Take 2 pom pons and wrap the ends of the pipe cleaners around them. Or, secure with hot glue.

    Wait until glue dries, and you're ready to buzz around!

    Optionally, create a pirate flag candy bag. You'll need an old pillow case and some paint.

    Paint it all black, and let it dry. Then, paint a skull or some other scary symbol.

    Get ready to go plunderin' for goodies and treats!


    There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home when you can DIY your costume.

    What You Need:

    • Blue gingham dress
    • White dress
    • Red shoes
    • Optional: stuffed dog

    Get Your Glitter On

    While red shoes will always work, if you've got a pair to craft up, now's the chance. You'll need adhesive spray and glitter.

    Go outside, and spray the shoes. Place a newspaper or catch-all, where you can dump the glitter. Make sure you cover the whole thing. Spray it again with adhesive, and let it dry. Knock off the excess.

    Throw on the rest of your outfit, put your hair in pigtails, and you're off to see the Wizard.

    The Pop Star

    Remember that Hannah Montana song "I Might Even Be a Rockstar", well now's the time to let out your inner-pop-sensation.

    What You Need:

    • Well-loved, hole-y jeans
    • A pair of statement shoes (boots and heels are awesome for this)
    • An eye-catching top (Doesn't have to be bright, just "out-there")
    • Optional: Drum sticks, guitar, bandana, sunglasses

    The World's Your Oyster

    What makes this costume so awesome is there's no one-single look. Instead, you can literally create your look out of thin air.

    What will you do with your hair? Think about teasing it up high, tossing on some clip-ins, chalking chunks of your hair, or straight-up wearing a wig.

    Even if you don't like traditional makeup, consider doing some face paint a la Kiss.

    Your clothing choices are endless. If you're more of a skirt and fishnets kinda little, then go for it. Consider layering things, and adding statement pieces.

    But just remember...you might not even be a rockstar--you are a rockstar!

    The Adventurer

    If there's one thing littles are good at, it's being adventurous. So, why not turn that into a whole look?

    What You Need:

    • Cargo pants or shorts
    • Boots
    • Jacket (brown or black)
    • Button down shirt (long- or short-sleeve)
    • Satchel or bag
    • Hat
    • Optional: Compass

    They Don't Call You Ohio Jones, for Noth--Hey, Wait!

    What makes this Halloween costume so awesome is that you don't have to be someone specific. Sure, we all have our favorite adventurers, like Indy and Dora, but they're not the only ones out there.

    The sky's the limit, when it comes to creating your adventure-based look. Think about adding in other pieces, like a treasure map, or going more rugged, with sticks and leaves in your hair.

    Either way, you're quite literally in for an adventure!

    Wrapping Up Little Space Halloween Costumes

    Hopefully you've got ideas running through your mind, by now. If you're unsure of where to start, take a look at your closet (and maybe your Caregiver's closet, or close family members' or friends' closets), and see if a piece stands out to you. What can you do with it?

    You'd be surprised how easy it is to pull costumes together, when you forget the purpose of what something is "supposed" to be.


    Soccer socks = leg covers

    Mardi Gras beads = Easily pinned to clothes for "gems"

    Washable markers = draw fake tattoos

    Keep going, you've got this, babycakes.
