The lobster costume is one halloween choice that might not come immediately to mind, but it has to be one of the funniest and cutest costumes out there. It also has several good points going for it – 1. it’s bright red so easily visible during the nighttime and darkness 2. – it has tons of legs for kids and adults! to play with and 3. it tends to be a full-body total cover-up of an outfit so is an ideal choice for a cold October Halloween night!
If you want to be a lobster for halloween, you’ll find a number of choices out there. If you don’t want to buy one you can also make one yourself with a little bit of creativity!
Lobster Infant Costume
Yes, the lobster halloween costume comes in the size just right for your baby. The costumes tend to have a hood that comes up over the head which not only lets the lobster antennas poke up letting your baby look just like a crustacean, but it also keeps your infant’s head warm at night! The claws come right over your baby’s hands, and the red color is super cute.
Kids Lobster Costume
OK, so your kid is a little bit older than infant, can he still be a lobster?? YEs!!! this halloween outfit of the ocean only gets cuter as your baby ages, because now he (or she) can stand and move around!! And kids absolutely love all the arms / legs.
Adult Lobster Outfit
Surprisingly, there are just as many choices for adults to be this bright red underwater crustacean as there are for kids! Adults get to choose between costumes that are more like “mascot” outfits that cover the whole head in its entirety, or more traditional costumes that leave the face showing. Either way, be prepared to be the center of attention in this outfit!
Pet Lobster Costume
Always wanted a pet lobster? Well then you’re in luck because yes, your pet can dress up as a crustacean for halloween too!! The outfit works best on a lighter colored dog so that the red stands out nicely against the fur. Don’t let him chew the claws!
How to Make your Own Lobster Costume at Home
