A child obsessed with a particular movie, show, or videogame is a force that must be reckoned with. And while you may roll your eyes when your adventurous child throws on his or her grotty old costume every day after getting home from preschool…. Halloween is that special time of year that geeky parents with some creativity can really help their offspring make their fanatical dreams come true.
One of the things I love best about Halloween is that it is the one day of the year when you might get a glimpse into the future of the neighborhood children and see who the goth-girls and super-geeks of tomorrow might be. Or at least which parents are the closet fanboys and fangirls of yesteryear. Because more often than not, they are dressed up with their kids, too. And you probably won’t recognize their costumes because they are that much hipper than you.
I’ve put together some of the coolest costumes to be found on the web that highlight the pint-sized nerds, geeks, fangirls, and the up-for-anything kids that take their costumes very seriously indeed. Added bonus: A few pictures of the moms and dads that proudly spawned some of the featured late-bloomers and creative techies of tomorrow.
