10 Very Vancouver (and super cute) Halloween costumes for kids!

Today’s Vancouver tots are all about rocking cool looks year-round, and Halloween is no exception. We put together a little roundup of some of the hippest Vancouver-inspired costumes for your little ones to sport on October 31st.

Tasty treats

Ice cream cone!

Vancouverites are crazy about ice cream. So dress the kids (or family up) as an Earnest or Rain or Shine ice cream.

Did you know we have a family of urban beavers living in and around Olympic Village? They’re pretty much local celebrities. Send out your own East Van or Yaletown beaver trick-or-treating.

Mini Athletes

GranFondo cyclist

A bike ride from Vancouver to Whistler is almost as exhausting as a night of trick-or-treating in the rain. Suit up your tiny athlete in a cycling kit; don’t forget a helmet!

Vancouver Marathon runner

Your tot will be ready to sprint from house to house in this easy to make costume. A sweat suit, headband, sneakers and a medal complete the look.

Tiny scuba diver

There aren’t many things cuter than a tiny scuba diver. Two litre bottles painted silver become oxygen tanks; just add a snorkeling mask. Look out, Porteau Cove!

Bonus

Rain Cloud

You can’t get more Vancouver than rain! So dress up as a rain cloud and it may even keep the droplets at bay on Halloween night. #raincouver

PS: Given our obsession with Pumpkin Patches, you can’t go wrong with a little pumpkin outfit for your little pumpkin.
