Why You Need to Buy Your Kid's Halloween Costume This Week

The close of September means three things: the leaves are changing, the weather is cooling and, yes, it’s time to start buying Halloween costumes.

If you’ve been thinking about buying a costume for your little one this year (while avoiding the typical department store options), this is the best week to do so. Two of our favorite sale sites, Gilt Groupe and Zulily, are having huge sales on unique, quality Halloween costumes.

Click through to see a sneak peak of the best Halloween sales this week.

Starting today, Zulily is having a massive Halloween Costume event from Princess Expressions, Tutu Moi, Wishing Wear, Simply Princess and more:

Both boys and girls can find something at the Wishingwear sale, up to 75% off. Like this Butterfly Princess, originally $100, is now $49.99 on Zulily.

Wishingwear also has unique boys costumes, like this wizard for $39.99 — originally $100.

This Wishingwear knight costume is a great deal too: $29.99 instead of the original $90 price tag.

If you have a baby to dress up, Zulily has Rubie‘s costumes for up to 60% off, like this little firefighter ensemble. (Originally $18; now $9.99.)

And this sweet little elephant costume is selling for $9.99 as well.

If you have a little princess on your hands, you especially need to check out the selection on Zulily.com. Gowns (like the above Yellow Beauty Princess Dress from the Simply Princess sale) are selling for $11.99 – $18.99 (normally over $30), plus bags, shoes, jewelry, wands, boas, makeup — all for 35 – 50% off.


If you still don’t find the perfect Halloween Costume on Zulily, pencil in a date with Gilt Groupe this Friday. The sale starts on Oct. 1 at noon (ET), and they probably won’t last for too long. Here’s a sneak peak:

If she’d rather be saving the world than being saved by a prince, this Batgirl costume on Gilt is both feminine and edgy. Original retail: $34, Gilt: $20.

This Tin Man costume will also be for sale: Original retail $30, Gilt: $18.

And how adorable is this baby Buffalo Costume? Original retail: $23; Gilt: $14.
