Halloween’s coming up, and Bored Panda’s got you covered. Now that you’ve got your pets dressed up for Halloween and your Halloween food ready, here are some kids’ Halloween costume ideas to inspire you as well.

The reason behind All Hallows Eve popularity is probably the chance to turn into someone else for a day; a tradition, that has deeper roots than you might think. On September the 30th all the spirits, mean and good, are released from the Afterworld into ours, with the agenda of bringing more living people in. The Halloween costumes were meant to hide you from these spirits by pretending you’re one of they’re own so they won’t see you. Since people have figured out that getting into afterlife doesn’t quite work that we way, Halloween costumes have gone far from the original ghosts, ghouls, and witches.

Even if you don’t have children, you’ll appreciate the creativity behind some of these costumes for kids. Some are based on pop-culture icon references like Harry Potter or Breaking Bad, while others, like the old lady toddler, are timeless classics. And if you’ve got a costume idea that your whole family can play a part in, that’s even more fun. It’s essential that these kiddos get dressed up right – otherwise, how will they be able to bring home all that trick-or-treat candy for us to eat?
