Dreaming of a White Halloween

Fall…It’s finally here! You know what that means? (Sucks in a deep breath of air)…Apple-picking, candy apples, apple cider, pumpkin-picking, pumpkin pies, jack-o-lanterns, candy corn, corn mazes, cornucopias, and of course, HALLOWEEN!

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. There’s something about the time of year that makes me smile and feel wildly giddy inside: the colder weather (Keystone Ski Resort is predicted to open on Halloween!), the over-abundance of candy, scary movies, and the adorable kiddos dressed in Halloween costumes.

I love finding an excuse to dress myself (and the dogs) up in whatever clever costume I can find – the scarier, the better! My favorite costume I’ve ever worn was when I dressed as zombie Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and even carried around a little stuffed zombie Toto dog. My husband went as the wicked scarecrow.

Here at WinterKids we love fall–but winter is still our absolute favorite. Since we’ve got Halloween on the brain, we have put together suggestions for fun, snow and winter-inspired costumes that will undeniably get you in the Halloween spirit!

Your child will love dressing up as the hilarious snowman from Frozen.


Who doesn’t love the comical snowman from Frozen? Transform your kid into Olaf, with this playful costume that includes a jumpsuit with plush overlay, brown velour sleeves and soft character headpiece. Olaf likes warm hugs, but you won’t have to worry about this fellow melting. Check out this do it yourself tutorial on how to make an Olaf costume.

Snow Globe

Although it’s not the easiest to find or make, a snow globe Halloween costume for your child will surely be the show-stopper this Hallows’ Eve. The shimmering magic of snow is always fascinating, whether it’s outside your window or inside this classic toy. A homemade snow globe costume lets you create a wintry wonderland straight out of your own child’s imagination. Tag along as this father makes his daughter’s dream come true with the perfect Hawaii snow globe costume for Halloween.

Snowy Owl

Snowy Owls are very regal creatures. They are born with black plumage marking their otherwise ghostly appearance, and then grow whiter as they age. Snowy owls play a part in the works of popular culture, most notably as Hedwig, the magical owl from the Harry Potter series. You can easily create a snowy owl costume for your child this Halloween by following these simple directions.



A yeti, or the abdominal snowman, is a great idea for a costume because it is scary to look at, yet extremely one of a kind. There are very few chances that you will find another child dressed up as a yeti. A yeti costume is made up of a body suit created from faux fur, and includes a ferocious face mask with furry hands and large feet (think Bigfoot costume!). Put a unique spin on your kid’s yeti costume by adding a pair of plastic skis and a beanie and turning it into a costume of our favorite yeti, Zemu!

What’s your favorite winter-inspired costume? What are your kids dressing up for this Halloween? We’d love to hear in the comments below!
