28 Halloween costume ideas – from MFMers

Who better to ask for children's Halloween costume inspiration than you lovely lot? MFMers certainly know how to do fancy dress in style...


The Little Vampire

This little guy’s costume is based on the lead character from Angela Sommer-Bodenburg’s The Little Vampire books. He’s got the character’s spiky hair and glasses look completely nailed.


Still in need of inspiration? Well, don’t reach for the face paints and yoghurt pots just yet. We’ve got everything from Lego bricks to robots and Day of the Dead skulls fresh from the clever mums posting on our MFM Facebook page to inspire you…

Not all Halloween costumes need to be scary and we love this Lego brick idea. All you need to recreate is a cardboard box, plastic containers and lots of paint.

White, black and red face paints are all you need to turn your little ones into zombies – well, that and a vacant stare.

Top marks for the scary snack selection too!



Get creative with a cardboard box and use different textures to make a futuristic robot. This costume shows how bubble wrap, paper plates and toilet rolls work wonders!

Witch Facepaint

For some last-minute Halloween fun get creative with the face paints. Love the skin-crawling insects and the eyebrows.
