Popular Halloween Costumes for 2018

It’s that time of year again where ghouls, ghosts, and goblins make an appearance…as well as princesses, pirates, superheroes, pretty much anything the imagination can make up! Halloween is such a fun time for kids, from dressing up to shouting “Trick or treat!” to counting up all their loot of candy after. While it’s fun to play pretend all year long, this is another opportunity to have fun with it!

If your child is still trying to decide what they want to dress up as for Halloween, we’ve got a list of the most popular costumes for 2018 to consider putting together.

Black Panther

After the box office hit came out earlier this year, expect to see a new superhero coming to knock on doors asking for treats. Marvel’s Black Panther broke records, so no doubt we will be seeing a few of these costumes sold!

It’s been the year of royal fever as we saw Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as well as Princess Eugenie and James Brooksbanks tie the knot. Not to mention the birth of Prince Louis and the recent announcement of Prince Harry and the Duchess expecting. Princesses have certainly been talked about a lot, and our own little princesses may want to take the opportunity to dress up like one for Halloween.


Can you believe that Hocus Pocus turns 25 this year?! While that may mean nothing to our young ones, with its sure appearances on TV (and talk of a second), this traditional costume may see a big boost in popularity.

Dinosaurs have always been popular amongst kids, but thanks to the latest release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, dinosaur costumes are being searched for more than ever. We like this little dude in his Triceratops costume, but there are a lot more to choose form too, like the big blow-up T-Rex costumes for adults.

2018 has been another good year for unicorns! Whether it’s a sparkly, glittery, bright costume or one full of rainbows, with or without wings, or even a costume that makes it look like you’re riding a unicorn, it’s easy to decorate this popular choice any way you want – just don’t forget the horn!

Love it or hate it, Fortnite has taken over as one of the most popular video games at the moment. I think some kids will want to go out like their favorite characters and work on their “floss.” Fortnite costumes might be *THE* costume this Halloween.

The Incredibles

The Incredibles came back to our screens earlier this year after a long wait from the first and it didn’t disappoint. It’s great as a theme for the whole family too, seeing as they’re a family of superheroes themselves.

Baby shark, doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo! Need we say more?


No matter which Halloween costume your child goes for, we hope they have fun dressing up and have a good time with friends and family while going trick-or-treating or to a party, or whatever they might be doing on Halloween night!

What will your kids be dressing up as for the big night? Something big and glamorous or simple yet effective? Scary, funny, or cute? Let us know and share pictures with us over on Facebook or Twitter!
