Brilliantly reinvented by Joaquin Phoenix, this boy’s costume can easily be put together without breaking the bank. You’ll need a shirt, tie, waistcoat and jacket (if your child doesn’t have these, it’s fine to use adult versions with the sleeves rolled up). Once you’ve got the clothes set, all that’s left is some messy hair, and some even messier makeup!
Your little girl may be made of sugar and spice, but that’s easily fixed with this incredibly easy costume idea. For instance, simply dress your child in a white shirt with a long collar, a black top or dress over the top, part hair in the middle and make two braids.

As a finishing touch, add a dusting of spooky white face powder.
