Kawaii Halloween Costumes To Buy & DIY

Posted on October 13, 2023 by

It’s Friday the 13th so that seems like a good time to talk about Halloween costumes! If you’d like to keep things cute, I’ve searched up some fun shopping picks and sewing patterns. They’d all be great for cosplay at cons and events too so much better than a cheap throwaway costume.

Sanrio Halloween costumes

Kigurumi are one of the easiest options for a kawaii costume and will be comfy and cosy too. I definitely wouldn’t judge you for wearing one around the house all winter! Sanrio (US) have lots of characters available, some of which also come in tall sizes.

I also have to include these plush headbands as they’re so cute and great for anyone who wants to dress up at work or school without making a huge deal of it. You can find these at ARTBOX (UK) and Sanrio (US) who also have sparkly sequin versions.

Pokemon Halloween costumes

JapanLA (US) have kigurumi and hats to help you dress up as various Pokemon, from Pikachu & Eevee to Scorbunny & Lucario. Their exclusive fashion range is also a good value option since you can wear it all year round.

Grogu Halloween costumes

For other characters, Hot Topic (US) have a big range of pop culture costumes and accessories including Disney, Barbie and various Halloween movie classics. This hilarious inflatable Grogu costume is sure to help you make friends.

Pusheen Halloween

For a more everyday look, the Pusheen x Unique Vintage (US) collab is 100% spooky cute! All the designs are adorable and there’s t-shirts and a bag if the vintage style isn’t for you. The Pusheen Shop (US) have also restocked their kigurumi.

cosplay sewing patterns

On to DIYs and CUT/SEW (US) have a huge range of cosplay sewing patterns inspired by anime and gaming, from maids and school uniforms to magical girls and kigurumi. They’re available as both physical and digital patterns and include plus sizes.

anime Halloween costumes

There’s some amazing designers on Etsy too, like PatternCosPatterns. They have lots of anime and gaming inspired costumes as digital sewing patterns, plus some historical designs too. I don’t know anything about League of Legends but I love this outfit.

Ghibli Halloween costumes

If you fancy a challenge or want to make a costume that will really stand out, head to Kinpatsu Cosplay. They have patterns, tutorials and videos for all kinds of cosplay DIYs including costumes, armour, accessories and wig styling. How incredible is this Princess Mononoke set?

DIY witch hat

Much simpler is this free DIY Witch Hat tutorial at the Spoonflower blog. I love the idea of making it in a non-spooky fabric to match your outfit. Of course they also have Halloween designs to buy on fabric from thousands of designers – check out their Halloween page to start browsing and there’s cut and sew printed fabric patterns there too.

dragon Halloween costumes

These wearable plush neck dragons by Sew Desu Ne? are such a cute idea, whether you add them to a full fantasy costume or just casually wear one with your everyday clothes. The digital sewing pattern includes 4 different dragons and there’s also woodland animals and mer-animals.

Are you planning to dress up this Halloween?
