I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up, the most terrifying thing about kids Halloween costumes was the material most were made of.
I’m talking, of course, about store bought costumes. The homemade kind were always the best, same as today.
But these days? Kids must have a much higher threshold for the macabre. Some of their costumes are just plain disturbing. (Put it this way, I’d have a very hard time handing candy to any kid dressed in most of the costumes in this post. I’d be afraid they’d whack my hand off if my candy selection was not to their liking!)
Here’s an assortment of the most terrifying Halloween costumes for kids I found this year.
TERRIFYING HALLOWEEN COSTUMES FOR BOYS
Zombie Doctor Child Costume (What Doogie Howser might’ve looked like if he’d been infected during the Zombie Apocalypse?)
TERRIFYING HALLOWEEN COSTUMES FOR GIRLS
Dahlia of the Dead Skull Print Tween Costume (Something like this probably would’ve appealed to me when I was a Tween.)
Gothic Ballerina Child Costume (Okay, so this one’s not scary at all. It’s more intriguing. Kudos to the little girl who recognizes her inner Goth so early and wears this costume for Halloween!)
