Halloween is one of the few holidays that allows us to let our creativity shine!

When it comes to crafting the perfect costume for their kids, some parents really go all out. Far from the days of poking two holes in a sheet and calling your kid a ghost, these folks put in the effort to make pop culture references we can appreciate for years to come.

1. “We always joked that our little guy looked like a Mandrake Root when he cried. Therefore, we dressed him up as one for his first Halloween!”

2. “Why be a princess, when you can be a Queen?” This child is owning her role as Queen Maleficent!

3. “My son Maverick was born at 25 weeks. He’s been so strong throughout his stay in the NICU and, hopefully, will be coming home in December. We figured Harry made an apt Halloween costume.”

4. To boldly go where no Muppet has gone before….

5. This 10 year old wanted to be “a very famous singer.” Weird Al, at your service!

6. “This year for Halloween she wanted to be a Jellyfish. Say no more, I got this. Practical on so many levels.”

7. “There’s no crying in baseball!” This dad’s trio of cuties would fit right in at “A League of Her Own.”

8. Steve from Minecraft, made entirely from boxes.

9. “Somebody stop me!” How perfect is her “Ace Ventura, Pet Detective” impression?

10. “I defy you to find a better #Halloween costume than this kid walking around with his own head in a jar.”
