I have nothing to wear for Halloween!   But, do I need to dress up for Halloween if I’m just going to follow some cute kids around all evening?


Recently, my daughter said, “Can I make a suggestion?  Target has a unicorn costume for grown-ups; maybe, you can get that one“.


Was that a hint?


She had a point – not about the unicorn costume at Target, but about my lack of plans for dressing up on Halloween.


Since I haven’t dressed up since before I can remember, the thought hadn’t crossed my mind. Since having kids, Halloween has been a day that I escort my cuties in their costumes.  It didn’t feel necessary (practical, even) to don my own.

But, now that they are older and capable of getting on their own clothes/costumes, I just might consider it this year.

If you are like me and thinking about dipping a toe back into Halloween costumes, here is a list of some costume-lite options I found on Amazon that would be nearly effortless.

Momster T-shirt – sure to be a classic

There are several styles of this Momster theme out there, but this is the cutest I’ve seen yet.  You need to wear some sort of shirt anyway, right?

Be the Incredible Mom Superhero You Are!


Continuing on the note of ‘you-need-a-shirt-anyway’, this Incredible Mom shirt is a riff on the popular movie, Incredibles.  (Incredibles 2 came out this year). This comes in several colors, including red to match the superhero outfits from the Incredibles movie.

Be a Classy Witch!


Witch hats are easy-peasy, especially if you plan on just giving out candy rather than walking the neighborhood. Here are 2 options that add a little more flair to the traditional witch hat you might find at the dollar store (love the Dollar Tree, though!)

Diver and Octopus Baby & Me costume


You’ve just got to see this one, even if your kids no longer fit in a baby carrier.  It’s so darn cute and creative! What a perfect way to include baby in the fun, even if s/he’s not old enough to trick-or-treat yet.
