Every Halloween, the inevitable question rises: What will I dress up my child as this year? The options may be endless, but the costume choices are not always easy. Finding one that matches your child's personality -- and that won't break the bank -- is the key. The stars may have some clues!
As the warriors of the zodiac, the costumes that work best for these little ones allow them to exert their inner Mars. Think Olympic athlete or gladiator.
Depending on the kind of Taurus your child is, opt for either a socialite or a hippie outfit. The former is a great costume option for kids who aspire to the glamorous life; consider the latter idea, however, if your child is more a fan of the natural world.
A librarian or stand-up comic will fit the bill perfectly for these little bookworms and class clowns!
Intuitive and imaginative by nature, Cancer children make wonderful fortune tellers on Halloween. Give them a magic eight-ball, wrap a scarf around their head and call it a day. Another fun option is to dress them as a chef, which requires simply an apron and chef’s hat.
A party animal (lampshade on the head, Mardi Gras beads), tortured artist (beret, all-black clothing, paint brush or notebook) or prima ballerina all work nicely for fun-loving and creative young lions.
These kids adore animals, so dressing yours up as a veterinarian or animal of any type should work nicely. Some simple cat ears and whiskers should get the point across well.
Try a fashion designer, model, movie star or beauty queen costume for your little Libran. Whatever outfit you choose, it has to allow your little Libran to primp in the mirror as often as possible.
The best choice for your privacy-seeking Scorpio youth? How about a ninja or private detective? A butterfly outfit will work well for more dramatic types.
Gypsies, explorers (think Indiana Jones) or any costume that recalls another time and place will play nicely to your young Sag's adventurous side.
Have a little fun with your Cap kid and dress him or her up as a tax collector or high-ranking politician. Whatever your choice, they'll need to assert power with their costume.
Dress an Aquarius child as a mad scientist, or maybe a beatnik or punk rocker. Any way you approach it, make sure they get to express their inner rebel on Halloween.
Imaginative and ethereal, dress up your Pisces youngster as a fairy, or perhaps a character from Little Red Riding Hood. For little boys, consider a ghoul, goblin or zombie costume.
