There are literally hundreds and hundreds of choices of pumpkin costume to choose from if you want to be a pumpkin for halloween! The reason is probably because the pumpkin without question is associated with halloween – so dressing up as one whether you’re an adult, child, or animal is a logical choice!! This is also a VERY VERY cute costume and can be custumized easily for a cute girl costume.
Girl Pumpkin Costume
The girl take on this halloween choice is very cute. You can go traditional and look like a regular pumpkin – a black leotard topped with a jack-o-lantern around the middle looks very very cute and will still let the girl look like a girl! Top off the head with a little cap with a stem and two pigtails!
Another twist on this is the Pumpkin Princess Costume – the girl will need an orange ballerina-style dress with strips of green running through the skirt, and a little green collar to represent leaves or vines. On the bodice there should be a picture of a jack-o-lantern. Add wings to the back and you instantly have a princess of the pumpkin patch! She also can be a pumpkin fairy!
Adult Pumpkin Costume
If you just want a general outfit that is pretty much gender-neutral, this halloween outfit totally fits the bill. It is fun and carefree and lets you cover yourself up completely making it a great choice for a cold October night! All the choices will involve a full-body suit with the pumpkin part of the outfit being a wide area around the torso with a jack-o-lantern face carved into it! Legs can either be orange or black – either will work, and the head should be topped off with a “cap” representing the stem!
Another idea for an authentic and very fun look on halloween, a nice choice is the inflatable pumpkin costume! The torso circular part of your outfit gets blown up with air making it very distinguishable and a really fun additional to any halloween party or trick-or-treating outing! This is an absolute favorite choice with both kids and adults alike!
Glam up the outfit and make a pretty women’s pumpkin costume!
This is a halloween clothing choice that can easily be glammed up a little to make it a good choice at an adult halloween party!
1. Simply start with a wig!! If you’re an adult woman, the best accessory you can have for this costume is an orange wig! You can find one pretty easily by doing a quick search on amazon for “pumpkin wig”. The standard seems to be a short bob that curls under and makes the head look somewhat circular. There is also a stem sprouting out of the top! If you don’t want a wig, don’t worry! You’re normal hair will work too!
2. Add an orange halloween dress – For women to glam up this halloween choice, you’ll just need a cute orange dress or orange skirt – the key thing with the dress or skirt is that you’ll want it to flare around the bottom, this helps create the round pumpkin look that you’re going for! 60s style dresses, poof skirts, pleated cheerleader-style skirts, and ballerina skirts will all work really well – the key thing that you want to remember is that they should be orange! The dress should be completely orange, whereas if you’re choose a skirt, the skirt should be orange, and you can make the top black! For your legs, you can add some orange and black stripe stockings and black heels! If you don’t have orange hair, a black witches style hat on the head will work just as good!
This is also a very popular choice of halloween outfit for both babies and toddlers because it is such an iconic halloween item! It also works well for babies that cannot move around that much as the round area around the middle may construct movement a little. The round bulbous shape of the fruit also makes it very cute to see on a child! It’s also a warm choice for those cold October nights!
What should your dog wear for halloween?
This is a great choice for your dog!! Every trick-or-treater will love the little guy dressed up in orange. There are several choices for the dog pumpkin costume, including outfits that cover the whole body or for bigger dogs, just little orange caps and collars!
