30 weird and wonderful Halloween costumes suggested by my five-year-old

Halloween is a wonderful time of year that inspires creativity in our little ones. My five-year-old expressed her concern about choosing a costume back in August, and ever since, has been throwing ideas around to see what we think.

If she has taught me anything, it's that anything and everything can be a Halloween costume, if you only use your imagination. Here is my list of 30 weird and wonderful costumes suggested by my five-year-old daughter.

  1. A zombie Pokeball

  2. Half Simba and half Nala

  4. A bus

  5. A bad person

  6. A puddle

  7. Me when I was pregnant with her

  8. A dead duck

  9. A random toy from inside a Kinder Egg

  10. A Joker (yes, the one from the current film. Lovely.)

  11. A jumping jack

  12. A broken phone

  13. Non-recyclable packaging (this suggestion came after I exclaimed that it was 'scary' that a certain plastic packing wasn't recyclable)

  14. Santa
