August 28, 2010

NEW YORK, Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ — Now that school has started, it’s time to start thinking about what to wear for Halloween. Parents.com and Parents magazine are great destinations for the best Halloween costume ideas for the whole family. Homemade Halloween costumes for babies, girls, boys, pets and even pregnant women are featured, as well as photos of the best store-bought baby and kids costumes.

“Halloween marks the kickoff of the holiday season, which is so much fun for kids,” says Dana Points, editor in chief of Parents. “Parents.com is packed with costume ideas and inspiration, whether you’re buying or DIYing.”

For parents with a little one, Parents.com has the best baby Halloween costumes, featuring everything from Raggedy Ann to a pink flamingo to a fairy princess.

There is also a gallery of handmade Halloween costumes for kids with photos that make it easy to DIY the adorable costumes at home. The site shows how to turn sponges into dragon spikes and gold-painted pasta into costumes fit for a king and a queen.

More do it yourself Halloween costumes with easy to follow directions can also be found at Parents.com. Each costume is made up of things that parents have around the house. For example, the zookeeper costume features khaki shorts, a white polo shirt and a ball cap with “Zoo” taped onto it. Attaching any number of stuffed animals from your child’s collection fully completes the costume.

Parents.com doesn’t leave out the pregnant mom-to-be. Check out the gallery of best pregnant Halloween costumes, including painted pregnant bellies disguised as a pumpkin face or even a basketball.
