This post was originally published in 2013 and has been updated for this year’s Halloween season.

Is your child ashamed of the homemade Halloween costumes you send them to the school party in? Are you looking for that special outfit that says, “Hey, I know I seem inhibited for most of the year, but for one day, I’m cutting loose and it’s Sexy Deadly Ninja all night long!”? Whatever your Halloween needs are, Newegg has you covered!

You were a kid once, so you must remember all of those costumes your parents made for you. Unless you had a parent who was a seamstress or worked in wardrobe at a movie studio, chances are those early costumes were terrible. Don’t let your child suffer the way you had to! Check out Newegg’s assortment of child costumes, ranging from generic ideas, like princesses and vampires, to famous costumes, including Star Wars characters and comic book heroes.

And now that you’re an adult with your own income, you too can’t be seen out in public with just any ol’ costume. Exorcise those childhood demons of being forced to wear a sheet over your head and calling yourself a ghost by getting something awesome this year! Men, be Superman even if you don’t have the body for it! Be Jack Sparrow even if you lack the charm! Be Batman, because it’s fun doing Christian Bale’s raspy voice! Women aren’t left out of the fun either. Be Wonder Woman! Be Catwoman! Or just wear this thing!

And if all else fails, you can always wear a Morphsuit.

For those of you with very young children, it’s never too early to start developing their sweet tooths (sweet teeth?). Dress your toddlers and infants in baby costumes as adorable beesKISS members, and more. On second thought, feeding sweets to newborns is probably not a good idea, but having a baby in your arms as you trick-or-treat is a sure way to net more candy for yourself!

Your pets shouldn’t be left out of the fun. That’s why Newegg carries an assortment of pet costumes that your animals will love to wear. Just look at the happy faces on these animals!


If you’re dressed in a sexy outfit, why shouldn’t your dog be just as sexy with this Lady is a Tramp pet costume?

And don’t forget you can also dress up for work! Whatever your choice is, just make sure that what you wear is appropriate for the environment you’ll be in. This Elvira costume might be great for the club, but you probably don’t want to wear it to the office Halloween party lest you develop a reputation. For those of you who would like to be fired immediately, you can always show up dressed as a giant middle finger or this thing.

For all of your Halloween costume needs, check out Newegg’s costume selection and save 10% off all Veil Entertainment orders with promo code VEILENT10.

What will you be dressing up as this year?
