One of the conversations that takes place in my house on repeat is about what our baby will wear for Halloween. She’ll be the perfect age — 7 months — to really be dressed up, and as we’ve discussed with her, Halloween is the ideal holiday, since you can never be disappointed by seeing people dressed up. It’s a holiday you can make as scary or as sweet as you desire, and you’re not putting up expectations for something grand like sometimes happens around the winter holidays.
I’ve been perusing options for what she’ll be, and it was hard not to want to snap up every single literature and book inspired baby costume. She won’t be wearing a bookish baby costume this year (maybe in the future), but because there are so many dang adorable options, I had to collect them somewhere.
Whether you’re starting your search for the perfect baby costume or you simply love looking at miniature clothing and costumes, this is your catnip. Find below comic-inspired duds, as well as fantastic crocheted options, and more.
