Top 10 Last Minute Halloween Costumes For The Whole Family!
It’s finally spooky season! It’s time to get ready for carving pumpkins, watching scary movies and stressing out over halloween costumes. One of these things is a little more stressful than the rest, and now that we can celebrate the scariest night of the year properly, nobody wants to fret over what to wear. We’ve all been there, October seems to fly by and when the 30th rolls around we’re officially out of ideas (or energy) to come up with a decent costume.
We can’t help with feeling a little too busy, but we can help you get into the spirit of the season with brilliant last minute costume ideas for kids and the whole family. We even have some gorgeous decorations you won’t want to tuck away come November 1st!
Not So Spooky Costumes For Wee Ones
Getting the smallest members of the family involved in the halloween fun doesn’t have to be difficult. If you’re looking for a cute baby halloween costume, all you need is an all over brown onesie, and a pair of bear ears and voila! You can even repurpose easter bunny ears with a bright onesie for an adorable ensemble that’s sure to impress.
We love this clever costume idea from Mom Always Finds Out, and it’s surprisingly easy to make! There’s no sewing involved, all you need is some glue, felt, a t-shirt and a beanie to turn your little one into an owl.
If your toddler refuses to get dressed up in itchy costumes, then why not opt for something simple yet effective? This kids Halloween costume only needs a black and white stripy t-shirt, black trousers and shoes, a black beanie and a white drawstring bag. Use a fabric pen to draw a money sign, and if you’re feeling creative you can make your own mask from black fabric! A bank robber is the perfect costume for holding up houses for sweets!
Creative Kids Halloween Costumes
This marvellous marine-inspired costume is cool and creative, and is sure to win best costume! All you need is a clear dome shaped umbrella (which could come in handy with UK autumn weather) to get started. Use a glue gun to attach wired ribbons and curled ribbons for your tentacles, and if you really want to impress, why not include fairy lights and glue to battery packs to the top of your umbrella?
A firm favourite that’s incredibly easy to make, all you need for your little minions is:
- Blue dungarees
- Yellow t-shirt.
- Yellow beanie
You can even use black pipe cleaners to make the iconic minion hairdo! An unmistakable outfit that makes for a brilliant group costume, your kids will really love this one.
Ah yes, the old faithful of last minute halloween costumes. A witch costume is wickedly easy to come up with. All you need is an all black ensemble and a witch hat and abracadabra, it’s the season of the witch! To jazz it up you can add a black cat stuffed toy as a familiar, swap out your usual trick or treat bucket for a mini cauldron, use green face-paint a la Wizard of Oz, or accessorise with funky tights.
If your little one is obsessed with superheroes, they’ll be enamoured with this twist on the usual cape and tights. Get them dressed up in their best shirt and trousers, with a superman t-shirt underneath. Then unbutton the shirt enough to see the iconic “S” and top with a pair of black frame glasses for a clever Clark Kent costume.
Fun Family Costumes The Whole Coven Will Love

Why not take inspiration from the spookiest family of all? The key to a perfect Addams family costume is all black outfits and plenty of drama. With plenty of characters to take inspiration from, the Addams clan comes with plenty of brilliant costumes to choose from that don’t take lots of time and effort.

Scooby-Doo is a staple for it’s monster hunting team, and a staple group halloween costume for families and friends alike. With five costumes to choose from the whole family can get involved, no mystery machine required!
This costume is incredibly easy and unique, and is ideal for a dark night of trick or treating. We love this tutorial from Holidappy, and all you need is black clothes and some glow sticks.
