2013’s Best Halloween Costumes For Girls


Once your little girl graduates out of toddler and childhood costumes, you will likely have them giving more input about what kind of costume they want to wear for Halloween. Some parents buy more than one costume – one that meets with all school restrictions, and another for Halloween night when they go trick or treating.

The great thing about costumes for younger girls is that they like to play dress up, and make-believe play is a wonderful creative exercise for kids! So the costumes get plenty of use, not just for a single day of the year.

Disney princess costumes are always a hit for the younger girls. They love to dress up as Cinderella, Snow White, Belle, Ariel, Jasmine, Rapunzel, and other characters. This year, Merida costumes from the movie Brave will be hot sellers, too!

Younger girls also like to be superheroes, and not necessarily Wonder Woman! Manufacturers have turned almost any superhero costume into a girl’s option these days, so there are Spidergirl and Supergirl costumes, too. There’s even an Ironette Ironman costume for girls, since that’s been the hit superhero movie for several years in a row now.

Wreck It Ralph has been a top movie for 2013, so you can bet that Vanellope Von Schweetz costumes will be popular among the younger girls. Any time there’s a hot Disney movie or other film, look for your child to ask about dressing up like those top characters!

This year, Monster High costumes will be big again for the tween and younger crowd. Lagoona Blue, Frankie Stein and Clawdeen Wolf are always the top sellers. You might have to buy the wigs separately, because many of the costumes are for the clothing and jewelry accessories only.

Vampires are still big with the tween and older crowd now. Ever since the movie Twilight came out – and the follow-up movies, girls all around the world have been in love with the idea of dressing up as Bella for a day and pretending to be the apple of Edward and Jacob’s eyes.

You’ll need to watch it on the vampire girls’ costumes, though. Some of them are modest, but others are what some parents might consider inappropriate. You’ll need to make that call for yourself.

Zombies are the other scary costume that girls love to wear. From zombie cheerleaders to zombie brides, these walking dead characters are more popular than ever – and they can be bought from barely gory to over the top disgusting!


Of course, some teenaged girls will want to don a more adult looking costume. They like dressing up in retro outfits from the 60s and 80s, for example. Some of them want to be flappers from the 20s.

Even character costumes are a hit with older teen girls. They like to dress up as the Mad Hatter or Alice in Wonderland. There are several really cute Mad Hatter costumes for girls – they’re fashionable and not too cheesy.

And let’s not forget Katniss from The Hunger Games. The second movie (Catching Fire) is scheduled for a November release, and although it’s after Halloween, the buzz is already building for it!
