Kid-Approved Costumes for Moms
Take the opportunity to be the cool mom with these kid-approved costumes!
Your children are only little for a short while. While that time is exhausting it is also a lot of fun and a lot of sweet memories are made. It won't be too long before they are teenagers and there won't be anything you can do besides embarrass them. So take this time to dress up in costume as a character that your child loves!
Many of these costume suggestions are based on movies or cartoons. So what better way to create new and fun memories with your children than to have a movie night and then dress up as your favorite characters!
Every little girl will think you are the most magical mom if you dress up like a Disney princess. And thankfully any woman can pull off the Disney princess look since there are so many to choose from. If you have red hair you dress up like Ariel from the Little Mermaid or Merida from Brave. If you are dark complected then you can dress up like Pocahontas, Jasmine from Aladdin, or Tiana from The Princess and the Frog.
I'm sure there are days when you really do feel like you are Mary Poppins. And let's be honest, Mary Poppins is a pretty big role model for moms everywhere. So maybe dressing up like her will help you channel your inner Mary Poppins. Just make sure to wear some bright red lipstick and smile... a lot! Put a fun twist on this outfit by actually having a dirty face! Your kids will think you are hilarious if you actually rub soot on your face!
Even though the movie, Frozen, is a few years old now, there is no doubt that this movie is still hugely popular with little kids. Dress up as Elsa, Princess Anna, or even Olaf if you are looking for something a little less popular!
There is no question that you are your kids' biggest superhero! Dressing up as your child's favorite superhero will earn you a ton of mom brownie points! Plus their friends will think you are super cool too!
Minions, from the movie Despicable Me, are adorable, funny, and love bananas... so it is easy to see why toddlers are obsessed with them! Dressing up like a minion might not be as difficult as you think. No, you do not have to have a giant, yellow, dome-shaped head! But super large goggles help! Of course, you would be the awesome (or maybe evil?) mom if you let your kids dress up as the minions and you dressed up like Scarlet Overkill.
Toy Story Costumes
Toy Story and the sequels are such cute movies. There are so many toys in that movie to choose from that would make an awesome costume. Your whole family could dress up like different toys.
Princess Fiona Costume
Maybe some days as a mom you feel like an ogre and other days you feel like a princess. If this is you, then maybe Princess Fiona is the perfect costume for you.
Retro Cartoon Character Costumes
Let your children enjoy all the cartoons that you enjoyed as a child. Even though Minnie Mouse is an older cartoon little kids still love her today! Let your mean side come out by dressing up as Cruella de Vil. Encourage your children to eat their spinach by dressing up as Olive Oyl from Popeye.
Nintendo Themed Costumes
You kids will definitely approve of you dressing up like a video game character! Not only will they think you are awesome for knowing who that character is, but even more so for dressing up like a character from a Nintendo game. Princess Peach, Mario, Luigi, Toad, Yoshi, Link, or Zelda costumes would all make you a super cool mom.
