The Coolest Halloween Costumes for Kids — All Under $50

Halloween is just a month away, and many of the most popular costumes sell out early, so it’s a good time to get a jump on your shopping. With an overwhelming amount of options to choose from — not to mention fickle kids who can’t make up their mind — finding the perfect costume can sometimes be a daunting task. To give you a little inspiration, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites, all under $50. To complete your costume look, we also have suggestions for stylish shoes to match.

Fancy Nancy Costume

Mini fashionista Nancy is the star of this sassy costume for girls. True to the spirit of Jane O’Connor’s much-loved book character, the outfit features loads of color, ruffles and an oversize bow. Naturally, when it comes to shoes, look for the most glittery and sparkly pair you can find, like these pink Mary Janes from Rachel.

“Minecraft” continues to be a popular Halloween costume theme. Kids can dress as one of the build-and-survive video game’s familiar faces, Steve. Classic Chuck Taylor sneakers pair perfectly with Steve’s T-shirt-and-jeans outfit.

‘Star Wars’ Stormtrooper Costume

There is no shortage of costumes for die-hard “Star Wars” fans. The Stormtrooper is a great option for kids who want to stand out from the many other Han Solos, Darth Vaders and Luke Skywalkers at their school parade. Simply switch out the boot covers for some sleek white kicks to create a comfortable twist on the traditional battle uniform.
