There’s less than a month until Halloween, and if you’re like me, you’re still looking for the perfect costume to wear this year. Luckily, shopDisney is the ultimate one-stop-shop this Halloween for Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars costumes and accessories for the whole family – even for your pets!
You can’t go wrong with the classics, and does it get any more classic than Mickey Mouse? Add a spooky touch to your typical ears and gloves with the Mickey Mouse Light-Up Skeleton Costume Accessory Set, which includes a mouse ear headband with glow-in-the-dark cobwebs and plush Mickey gloves with light-up skeleton bones inside. Little ones will look cuter than ever dressed as one of Mickey’s pals in the plush velour Pluto costume or the Disney Minnie Mouse costume bodysuit and shoes for babies. Even your furry friends will have people shouting “hot dog!” in this Mickey Mouse jack-o-lantern pet costume that glows in the dark.
Make this Halloween as magical as your child’s favorite Walt Disney Animation Studios’ film. If they dream of dressing up as a hero or heroine, they’ll love the costumes of beloved characters like Belle, Beast, Tiana, Naveen, and Peter Pan. Or if they’re feeling a little mischievous, they can don the costume of a wickedly charming Disney Villain, like the Evil Queen or Captain Hook. shopDisney also has a fantastic assortment of costume accessories to complete your ensembles, including costume jewelry, shoes, wigs, and more!
Who lit the Black Flame Candle? Embrace your inner witch and go all out in a full Sanderson Sister costume and wig (flying brooms, mops, and vacuums not included!), or opt for a simpler look with a Disney “Hocus Pocus” accessory set, complete with hooded cape and hairpiece. And how bewitching is this Winifred Sanderson costume for your pooch? This adorable pet costume by Rubie’s is sure to steal the spotlight at any costume contest you and your pup attend this year.
I sincerely hope none of us will be haunted by any family curses this Halloween … But that doesn’t mean we can’t still embrace our inner red pandas! Just like Mei in Disney and Pixar’s “Turning Red,” kids can transform into an adorable red panda when they wear this colorful, fluffy bodysuit. Or if your young one is ready for their next mission from Star Command, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger suit, inspired by Disney and Pixar’s “Lightyear,” is an intergalactic necessity for blasting to infinity and beyond. You can even bring the whole family together for a truly incredible Halloween, in these super suits inspired by characters from Disney and Pixar’s “The Incredibles,” including Mr. Incredible, Mrs. Incredible, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack.
Speaking of Super Heroes, it’s time for the Avengers to assemble for a truly epic Halloween! Kids can armor up as Iron Man, swing into action as Spider-Man and Miles Morales Spider-Man, or lead Earth’s Mightiest Heroes into battle as Captain America, in these muscled bodysuit costumes and masks. Young heroes can also unleash their cosmic powers as Captain Marvel or lead the Kingdom of Wakanda in the light-up Black Panther costume and Black Panther adaptive costume.
These might be some of the coolest costumes in the galaxy! Star Wars fans can don the iconic armor and cape of the powerful Boba Fett, while those who are inspired by the Force will love dressing up as former Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano. And I haven’t forgotten about the younglings! Little ones will be as adorably irresistible as “the Child” himself in this Grogu costume for toddlers and Grogu costume bodysuit and shoes for babies. Of course, if your child has already outgrown their hover pram, they might be more interested in walking the way of the Mandalore in the three-piece costume inspired by Star Wars “The Mandalorian.”
Now even more kids can dress up as their favorite characters with shopDisney’s line of adaptive costumes, made with comfortable stretch fabric, discreet flap openings for easy tube access, ankle-length bottoms to accommodate those who are seated, and other accessible features. Young Mandalorians will be all set for their next adventure in this adaptive costume and matching wheelchair cover set that looks just like the Razor Crest ship of Din Djarin, inspired by the exciting Star Wars series “The Mandalorian.”
Princesses can soar into a whole new world as well with the newly released Magic Carpet Wheelchair Cover Set for standard manual wheelchairs with 24” wheels. They can also dress up in the perfect ensemble for their magic carpet ride in the Jasmine adaptive costume, which pairs beautifully with the Jasmine tiara and costume jewelry set. If Queens are more their thing, your child can show their confident style in the Elsa adaptive costume and matching Elsa costume wig.
So many great costumes, so hard to choose! And this is only a small selection of the full assortment you’ll find on shopDisney. I can’t wait to see how everyone dresses up this year. Happy Halloween!
