Putting together these ideas for easy Halloween costumes for babies, all featuring clothes and accessories they can wear again, wasn’t just fun — it was very personal. I know I’m not the only parent who doesn’t look forward to spending a lot of time or money on a Halloween costume that will be worn once.

(Looking at you, overpriced pea-in-a-pod costume that my first baby wore for a grand total of 45 minutes.)

In fact, last year, I realized that every item in my then 8-year-old daughter’s dream costume (Gwen from Total Drama in case you’re wondering) was something she wore again. I may not always get so lucky. It made me think about how fantastic it is to come up with costumes — especially for babies and toddlers — that make use of clothing you already own, or maybe the kinds of accessories you’re happy to buy anyway.

And that means shoes too.

That’s why it’s been so delightful to put together this fantastic list of easy baby Halloween costumes on behalf of our newest sponsor, Carter’s Every Step baby shoes (how cute is this video!) which makes adorable shoes for every one of your baby’s early stages. Besides, what a smart Halloween hack — planning a costume for your baby around a good pair of baby shoes you need for those little growing feet anyway.

The styles are so cute and practical, you know they’ll get worn again. Unlike those masks and wigs which, take it from a BTDT mom, will barely make it through Halloween night, let alone the rest of the year.
