By now you’ve probably chosen your child's Halloween costume, but with you being a horror nerd and all, there’s a chance you weren’t that impressed with the selections in your local stores. Sure, there are the typical vampires, witches and ghosts... but what about something a little more unique and in line with your favorite horror movie characters? Strap on your DIY thinking cap and try these costume ideas on for size!
Whether you’re 4 or 40, you know the man who haunts your nightmares. Child murderer or not, the red and green sweater is always fun, especially on a baby or toddler.
Chucky & Tiffany
This one seems like a no-brainer, based on the fact that Good Guys dolls are about the average height of a 2-year-old. Even cuter when you add Tiff to the mix!
Remember Beetlejuice as being a wise-cracking chauvinist? You won’t when you see your kid in all of his monochrome glory!
Granted this one isn’t a DIY costume, but to be fair it isn’t easy stitching human skin together...
The charming cannibal has never looked cuddlier.
Ash from Army of Darkness
Give this baby some sugar!
Sam from Trick 'r Treat
Remember the rules of Halloween and definitely give this little one some candy! (Another important rule: keep an eye on our FEARtober Trick 'r' Treat calendar for free goodies on each day of the month, leading up to FEARnet's Trick 'r' Treat Marathon on the 31st!)
Again, not a DIY effort... but this little guy has such sights to show you! How can you say no?
The look on his face says it all…
Tippi Hedren from The Birds
A seriously creative effort. Hitchcock would be proud.
