Halloween Costume Helllllpppppp!!!!

Please! Help! My son is almost 2 and so he doesn’t have much of an opinion as to what he goes dressed as. He can’t stand anything on his head or over his face. I’m also extremely creatively challenged! I’m panicked!

    He loves trucks and cars, firefighters, Bubble Guppies. I’m not sure if he would wear an animal costume that covered or went on his head. He does love animals though.

    You could make him a monster truck out of a box.

    You can do an animal and do face paint like a lion

    Ummmmm - did you see my note about being creatively challenged? I am not artistic at all! Thank you for the amazing suggestions though!

    My daughter is like this. I just buy a costume that usually doesn’t require something over the head or on face. She’s Batman this year and I might try to put mask on. Good luck

    Baby shark! I got my son this hoodie off amazon for I think $12. It has a fin on the back too. He normally doesn’t like things on his head but after putting this on him a few times and pulling up the hood he really likes this hoodie now. He even pulled it out of the pile of dirty laundry because he wanted to wear it. Also he can wear it again and again even after Halloween

    Agree with animal hoodies! There are so many cute ones on Amazon. Here is a bear one I love. My kid wore it for at least a year!

    I bought my son fireman pajamas from Old Navy and got a cheap plastic fireman's hat. They have doctor and astronaut ones too. This way I can get more than one use out of it. Why spend a bunch of money on a costume he'll wear for an hour?

    My son was exactly the same way, last year, at 2 years old. We chose to make him a football player. I ended up getting him a Bears jersey from amazon, a white turtleneck and white leggings (lol!) and made a thick line of mascara under his eyes. I happened to have a small football. He was warm and nothing bugged him except for maybe the placement of the mascara.

    When my son was 2, he was afraid of every costume I showed him. I used black duct tape to make a yellow shirt into a Charlie Brown shirt and used eyeliner to draw a squiggle on his forehead for hair. It worked when it was warm for the trunk or treats. On Halloween night it had gotten colder, so he ended up in jeans and boots and an orange vest (someone had given it as part of an outfit) over a long sleeved T-shirt. He also wore a cheap construction hat from his birthday party, but if your son wouldn’t do that, maybe you could give him a tool belt or tool box to help him look like a construction worker. Good luck!! And in encouraging news, my son is ALL ABOUT all the Halloween costumes this year (he’s about to turn 3)! 😊

    Yeah we are doing the pajama costume thing for our little one. The Disney store has them for a lot of characters and they’re $15-20 and he can wear them all year. 100% cotton
