In the US, Halloween is a kid's dream-come-true holiday
As you search the Internet for kids costumes you will find there are some kids Halloween costumes that are appropriate for both boys and girls. However most kids costume designs are gender based. Childrens Halloween costumes for boys lean heavily toward superheroes, historic figures, occupation related outfits, and movie characters while childrens Halloween costume outfits for girls favor angels, historic figures, lady bugs and bumble bees, witches, and princess costumes. The range of historic based kids costumes is very broad ranging from prehistoric times through the Greek and Romans to the Renaissance, and onto the roaring 1920's, the bebop 50's, flower child 60's, disco 70's, and the punk / rocker 80's. Characters from Disney movies, as well as the Star War movies, along with TV shows are well represented in kids costume designs. Toddler and baby costumes are often a separate category from kids costumes, yet offer outfits in numerous similar categories.
However, Halloween is not the only occasion for children to wear kids costumes. Dress-up play is an important aspect of childhood development. As a child it is always exciting to dive into the trunk, box, or drawer where all the dress-up kid costumes are kept and creating a new imaginary persona. So when Halloween is over, definitely don't throw out that kids costume! Into the dress-up box it goes.
Internet costume sites also offer accessories to complete a kids costume look from shoes, jewelry, fangs, wings, wigs, sunglasses and handbags to props such as weaponry, treasure chests, witches brooms, feather dusters, fans, beards, moustaches and eye patches. And then there is the makeup, which is a fun and easy way to turn a kids costume into a magnificent finished look.
