It’s almost Halloween, so here are 17 of the best baby costumes the internet has ever seen

Babies might not fully grasp what Halloween is all about, but that doesn’t mean they can’t dress up and be the cutest kid on their block. And because we’re obsessed with both babies and Halloween, we scoured Instagram to find some of the best baby Halloween costumes we, and you, have ever seen.

Little tykes can pull off the craziest costumes and still look amazingly adorable. From funny costumes like Björk (see below) to too-cute-for-words ensembles like little Sushi bites (also see below), these are seriously some of the most clever Halloween getups we’ve seen to date.

Parents of babies, take note! Because we can guarantee these photos will get your creative costume ideas flowing.

1Björk in her Swan Dress


2Glowing Ghost

This is a brilliant way to keep track of your little one while trick-or-treating.

3Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf

We like how in this version of the classic fairytale Red seems to have taken a liking to the Wolf. Very progressive.

4Iris Apfel

As the legendary fashionista once said, “Fashion you can buy, but style you can possess,” and this baby gets it.

5“Witch Please”

Babies wearing sassy sayings is possibly our number one favorite thing ever.

6Soy Sauce and Siracha

We have always had a soft spot for condiments, but who knew they could be so cute?

7Cookie Monster

Okay, this one might not necessarily be groundbreaking. But how freaking cute?

8Wonder Woman

Even though she’s just a little girl, she’s still a powerful woman!

9Candy Corn Nugget

This baby is almost as tiny as a candy corn. We can’t stand it!

10Bruno Mars

This kid’s parents are amazing.


She’ll have to stick with gummy candy until she finds her dentures.

12Where the Wild Things Are” Characters

Two of the ~best~ best friends in children’s literature, in our opinion.

13Charlie Brown

Embrace the baby baldness!

14Cabbage Patch Kid

Baby, where’d you get your hair done? We want your look.

15Boiled Lobster

We’ve heard bun in the oven, but what about lobster in the pot?

16Pubert Addams

The smallest family member of the spookiest family in pop culture who can also grow a killer stache.


Almost cute enough to eat.


Okay, this one is a bonus. Because HOW CUTE IS THIS?

We hope you moms and dads out there got inspired to really go all out this Halloween with your little one. We’re not saying ~try~ to make other babies and parents jealous with your baby’s costume. But hey, if it happens, it happens.
