With the conclusion of yet another shark week, I'm confident in saying that baby shark costumes are going to be a hit this Halloween. While they will be popular with all ages, they are perhaps best for infants. There are several different models on the market so you can choose the one that will best highlight your child's adorableness. Plus you will have an item that is both scary and cute.
Good Baby Boy Costume
Anyone who is looking for a good Halloween costume for a baby boy should consider a shark outfit. Most baby costumes, such as pumpkins and monkeys, go equally well with both boys and girls. But this one is one that will appeal more to parents of boys. The most common colors are gray and blue, so if you go out on Halloween people will assume that your child is male. So this is a good pick if you want everyone to tell you how cute your son is when you go out trick or treating.
Baby Shark Costumes are Good for Girls, Too
Of course, that doesn't mean that this isn't a good choice for girls. After all, these sea creatures are awesome and it isn't just the guys who like them. But the colors tend to be dull and most people will assume that your baby is a boy if you don't do something to spruce the outfit up. Something as simple as a ribbon will let everyone know that your baby is a girl.
Keeps Your Baby Warm
In most places, the end of October is pretty cold. So it is important that you find something that will keep your young one warm and cozy, especially if you are going out at all. One thing that is nice about this costume is that it covers all of the baby except for the face. The head is covered, the arms are covered, and even the feet are covered and nice and cozy inside the tail.
Works Best for Babies
Why is the baby shark costume such a good choice for infants this Halloween? Well, shark costumes lack a certain level of realness for toddlers, children, teens, and adults. It is impossible to walk around when your feet are in a tail. So the tail usually goes behind the body so you can walk on your feet. But young babies aren't going to be walking around. Therefore, they can have their feet inside the tail. This makes the costume look better and keeps the infant warmer. Most open up with velcro so taking the costume on and off for diaper changes isn't a problem.
For the Whole Family
While I think the infant will be the cutest, the whole family can decide to dress up as sharks for Halloween. Older children, moms, and dads can all wear matching outfits. There are even shark dog costumes so your canine can join in the fun. A group of sharks is called a shiver, school, or shoal. So if anyone asks you what you are going as for Halloween, you can say that your family is a shiver of sharks.
