Halloween! It’s one of the most fun holidays of the year – and for kids? It’s a day where they can dress up in adorable costumes and go trick-or-treating until they have all the candy they can imagine! What’s really great is when the parents put some thought and creativity into it to make the coolest costumes ever.
Here are 60 kids who had the best costumes of the year.
Perhaps this can be some inspiration for next year if you have a little one in your life
1) Baby grandma

She couldn’t decide between The Hulk and a fairy – so, she went with both! And we applaud her for her decision.

The parents of this little girl went the morbid route this year. Instead of a cute pumpkin or princess, they went with this ‘headless’ body with the floating head. Genius.
