Ah, to be a teenager once again. Some might say it’s one of the best parts of their lives, others might disagree. Regardless if you’re the popular kid, the jock, the bookworm, or the band geek, just like any other stage in our lives, we only get to be teenagers once. Which is why we need to make the most out of it. These young people are greatly influenced by their favorite fictional characters, which is why it is a great idea to dress up as them this Halloween. Whether they want their costumes to be scary or magical, I’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of the best teen Halloween costumes that’ll let your kids have fun on our favorite holiday.
Get out your whozits, whatzits, and thingamabobs because you’re about to become the great mermaid princess from under the sea! Being a mermaid princess has been one of the most famous answers to the question, “What would you like to be when you grow up?” You can finally let your children make that dream into a reality with this cute, purple mermaid costume that will be the envy of every kid at the Halloween party.
This costume teen Halloween includes the mermaid dress and the headband. The blending of the blue and purple on the mermaid’s tail is beautiful and creates a glimmering effect. The headband also has purple sequins and faux gems for that added sparkle!
The reaper is one of the most popular options for a Halloween costume. It’s the ultimate Halloween icon. The tattered robe, the hood that makes it all spookier and more mysterious, perfect for those who want to showcase some of their teenage angst. Being a teenager is tough, after all.
This teen Halloween costume is perfect for sneaking up on friends on their trick-or-treating trip. The costume includes the dress, a cape with an attached hood, a pair of gloves, tights, and a waist chain. I also like the mesh details on the hood and the veil. You’ll be filled with jealous souls to reap at this year’s Halloween party!
Become one of the world’s most favorite adventurers with this Indiana Jones teen Halloween costume. Indie is well-known and loved by fans of the franchise and there sure are a lot of them! Now, your kids can also have fun dressing up as him this Halloween.
This set has all the necessary iconic bits of the entire costume: the pants, jacket (that has an attached shirt), and the hat – can’t miss the hat! This costume is pretty easy to put on, it could just inspire some of our future archaeologists and historians. You could even kick it up a notch and set up a Halloween party with kid-friendly versions of puzzles for the kids to solve.
It might have taken too long for the second Incredibles movie installment, but we are all glad that it’s finally here. Our favorite superhero family has made their comeback, so if you’re planning on a themed costume for everyone in the family this Halloween (the Renaissance theme is great, but let’s change it up a bit, shall we?), this is one of your best bets.
One of our favorite teenage superheroes, Violet, is a great option for your teenage kids who have always wanted to have the power of invisibility. The costume includes the dress with the Incredibles logo, the footless, black tights, a pair of black gloves, and a mask to conceal her true identity!
Belle is the ultimate sweetheart. She’s pretty, she loves reading, and she has a strong will. You won’t sway her with your sweet talking – I’m looking at you, Gaston! This cute costume is the perfect choice for your willfull teenage kid who knows what they want in life.
Plenty of kids look up to her because of her wit and intelligence, and she inspires in them the power to not care about other people’s opinions of what a lady should be like. She’ll take no nonsense from others, that’s for sure. To achieve this look, you’ll get the blue-and-white dress, and that cute hair bow. Books aren’t included, but I’m sure that if your kids want to dress up as Belle, they’ve already got that covered.
There’s always that one kid who, despite not being popular, is always a reliable and loyal friend. A lot of them can relate to our beloved Simpson’s character, Milhouse. He’s a blue-haired boy whose entire persona is a ball of endearing awkwardness that we can’t help but love.
He’s actually a pretty tough character, despite what most people think of him. This year, your kids can dress up as their favorite Fallout Boy with this fun costume. It has all the things you need: shirt, pants, a vinyl wig, and a pair of eyeglasses with his legendary blue eyebrows attached on top.
Everyone could definitely use to have a Katniss Everdeen persona. She’s brave, she doesn’t bow down to bullies, AKA ‘The Capitol’. Despite not being from the best and most prestigious district, Katniss rose above the challenge and won The Hunger Games. Together with her friends, she took down the dictatorship that was oppressing the people through their cruel and barbaric methods.
Anyone can be Katniss Everdeen at least once a year. With this costume, your kids could volunteer as tribute to save their loved ones, too. It has an armored shirt, a pair of pants with the attached knee and shin guards, and the Mockingjay pin. The odds will surely be in your kids’ favor.
Why so serious? Joker has been – and will continue to be – one of our favorite bad guys. He’s a well-developed character with great, quotable lines. Fans of his dark wit can now dress up as him this Halloween, no matter how old or young they are.
Your teenagers can definitely get behind this costume of this relentless antagonist. It comes with a mask and the purple jacket and shirt. The tie and vest are printed on the shirt. It’s an overall simplistic costume, but it certainly leaves an impact. Go find someone at the party dressed as Batman and have a blast this Halloween with candy and parties.
