About Octopus Costumes
With its eight dancing arms and bulbous head, the octopus is a common character in kids' cartoon shows and movies. Children who love these curious creatures can dress as their favorite sea dwellers and wear octopus costumes. As you can see when browsing the vast inventory on eBay, these outfits are often designed for babies and toddlers. This is likely because these ensembles are perfect for little ones who spend most of their time sitting or crawling. The costume typically consists of a comfortable onesie with a hood and four extra appendages that match the suction-cup covered fabric on your baby's arms and legs. Some kids' octopus costumes consist of a hood that has tentacles that begin just under the neck, concealing the child's body. Of course, people of all ages can get in on the fun of dressing up in octopus costumes. There are plenty of larger costumes suitable for toddlers. Teens and adults can also dress up as a realistic octopus or an octopus-themed character, such as Squidward from "SpongeBob Squarepants," Doc Ock from "Spider-Man," or Ursula from "The Little Mermaid."
