  • Aliens Power Loader Parent/Baby Costume


    Okay, if you love the movie Aliens, and are a super creative person with a lot of time, you can attempt to replicate this awesomeness. Jason Smith, the creator of this amazing costume, wrote on YouTube: "I love Halloween, and I wanted to create a costume that my daughter and I could share. She was amazingly content the whole night, and enjoyed looking at everybody else's costumes!" So cute!

  • It's Gr-r-reat!


    Everyone's favorite cereal spokes-tiger gets a tiny makeover! This mom chose to go as a cereal box in what is probably one of the most brilliant babywearing costume of all time, tbh. Now let's just hope that this kid doesn't get a basket full of Frosted Flakes for his Halloween treats! 

  • Harry Potter

    No, a baby doesn't have to be in a sling to be Harry Potter, but it's an awfully easy and cute costume for a tyke in a baby carrier. And, if mom feels like dressing up, she can go as any other character from the movie.

  • Owl in a Tree


    Gah! What a great idea! This mama wore a green hat and a big, brown maternity shirt, and stuck her baby inside, so it looks like he's an owl in a tree! Love this!

  • Hold the Door!


    This costume hurts our Game of Thrones–loving soul, a little. While dressing a baby up as Hodor, "holding the door" and protecting Bran from White Walkers, is one of the best GoT-inspired costumes we've ever seen, it's too soon! A+ for effort, D for making us want to cry!

  • Casting a Spell


    This mom chose to go as Harry Potter's Professor Sprout with her very own mandrake! Kindly, this Sprout has put a warning on her little enchanted plant: 

    "CAUTION. Approach only with adequate ear protection, screams are not yet lethal but may cause extended periods of unconsciousness."

    A good warning, if this baby mandrake starts to cry!

  • Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect $100


    Here is a Halloween surprise, the Monopoly Man actually has a name! This mom found a mustache pacifier and knew she had to make a costume that would live up to the gag. After trying many ideas she decided to dress her baby as "Rich Uncle Pennybags," aka the Monopoly Man. Hilarious!

  • Just a Bunch of Grapes


    Don't sample these grapes! This mom needs them to make wine! This grape bunch costume is so cute and easy to make too. Just get green and purple balloons and attach them to a baby carrier. Walk around holding a cheap bottle of red wine and BOOM, perfect funny costume.

  • Do You Want to Build a Snowman?


    While the mom wearing the ladybug on the right is very cute, we can't stop looking at this baby Olaf! It's homemade and can be perfectly seen while baby is facing mom. We admit it, we do want to build a snowman! And, we are smitten over this Frozen-inspired costume. 

  • One Fish, Two Fish


    Here is a costume that is perfectly Seussian. Thing 1 and the Cat in the Hat are certainly up to no good this Halloween, but have no fear, the Fish will stop them before mom comes home! A good choice for a crafty mom who loves a good group costume -- why not give this Dr. Seuss–themed carrier a shot?

  • Max and His Boat


    Hey there, Wild Thing! Let the Wild Rumpus start! This mom went the full mile not only in creating a precious Max costume from Where the Wild Things Are, but also in dressing herself as Max's boat. We love her attention to detail -- check out her amazing wave print skirt and bell sleeves meant to look like the boat's sail. So creative! 

  • It's-a Me, Mario!


    Don't jump on this mushroom! While mom and dad don the coolest Mario and Luigi costumes, their little guy is a Super Mushroom. We aren't Super Mario masters, but we can tell this trio is going to win the Halloween costume game! 

  • A Chip Off the Old Block


    Who better to trick-or-treat with Belle than Chip, the teacup from Beauty & the Beast? This mom truly went the extra mile to make Halloween special -- she even handmade her baby carrier costume! Now where is Lumiere, we wonder?

  • The Concession Stand


    This clever costume comes with a complementary bag of popcorn! Mom and Dad are the concession workers, older sister is a hot dog (too cute!), and baby? Well, take a look at that popcorn-shaped hat for pure Halloween costume genius!

  • Feed Me, Mommy


    This is not the first person to make an amazing Audrey II costume, and we can see why this character from Little Shop of Horrors makes for an amazing babywearing costume! Broadway fans, this one's a keeper! 

  • Baby King Kong!


    An adorable choice for any little monkey. This couples (mom + baby) costume is hilarious! Now our only question is, can this mom comfortably turn her head?
