Seattle Kraken

Whether yours wears a mask and carries a hockey stick or is cute and cuddly like this one, Kraken is the new black in Seattle. So unleash your creativity on this mythic Halloween creature costume as a way to show your support and excitement about Seattle's newest team. Go Kraken!

A Hydro Flask

Meredith Browand

Seattle VSCO kids aren't complete without their handy Hydro Flask (sksksk). So why not dress up baby as everybody's favorite quintessential accessory this Halloween? All it takes is a colorful onesie, a black cap and an eye for design to re-create this adorable costume everyone will be talking about!


Won't everyone be surprised when they see this elusive creature wandering the streets on October 31? Rumor has is he lives in the forests of the Cascades, so he's a total PNW original. Dress your little creatures up as Big Foot for a memorable night.

A Baby Orca

The babies are here! Give our newest Seattle residents a shout-out with a super cute orca costume to celebrate their recent arrival. Your budding marine biologist will have a whale of a good time on Halloween night sporting this eye-catching costume.

Alaska Airlines Flight Attendant

Kristina Moy

These awesome attendants are hip to your kids. When you fly Alaska Airlines, they’re dropping by with coloring books, pins and trading cards before you’ve even had time to stow your overhead baggage. No wonder your little fliers dig them. Set your tot's sights on the skies this year.

A Washington State Ferry

Because it’s the coolest form of public transportation around, it’s no surprise Seattle kiddos can’t get enough ferry love. Dress your little captain in his or her cardboard best, “decked” out with some green and white paint, to DIY this sea-worthy costume.

Do you still have pandemic purge piles sitting around at your place? Why not turn your future donations into a creative Halloween costume your tot can wear to celebrate this year? All it takes is a creative mind and a bit of determination to fashion the coolest costume on the block.

A Rain Cloud

If there’s one thing Seattle kids know and love, it’s rain. They play in it, splash in it and have repeatedly soaked their pants going down countless rain-soaked slides over the years. So it’s only fitting that they should now dress up as it, for Halloween. Andrea’s Notebook has the deets on how you can put together this DIY costume that feels right at home in Seattle.

The Pink Elephant

It may be retired, but the Pink Elephant lives forever in the hearts of Seattleites. Dress your sidekick up like the neon icon, the pink elephant, of car wash fame. All you need is a cute elephant costume and a watering can to draw oohs, ahhhs and some good laughs.


Ashley Johnson

Although Macklemore may have traded his faux fur for golf shirts and plaid shorts, this costume is always a hit. Take a trip to the thrift shop (you know the one) to dress up your sidekick as Seattle’s prodigal son this Halloween. Sort through granddad’s best to put together this simple DIY costume that, you guessed it, looks incredible!

The Gum Wall

It’s quite possibly our city’s grossest attraction. Maybe that’s why kids love it so much! Re-create the infamous gum wall with some cardboard, tons of gum (or tissue paper) and some creative know-how to make an impression (or leave one anyway) in the ‘hood this year.

A National Park Ranger

Tracy Swartout

With three amazing National Parks within a few hours’ drive of the city, it’s no wonder Seattle families spend so much time hiking, biking and skiing through them all year long. Let your Little’s national park love shine bright this Halloween by dressing him in a park ranger hat, badge and telltale khakis.

Caspar Babypants

Under normal circumstances, your kindie rocker follows him from library to library, farmer’s market to farmer’s market, and if he’s playing at Top Pot, don’t even get us started! It couldn’t be easier to pay homage to the man in the (baby) pants himself, Caspar, than to throw on a yellow t-shirt, black shorts and a tot-sized guitar (a ukulele works great!) this Halloween. Extra points if your Halloween half-pint can hum a few bars of his favorite Caspar tune along the way!
