The first SpongeBob Squarepants series for Nickelodeon made its debut in 1999. Its popularity remains today with a wide theatrical release, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, in 2015, a Broadway musical in 2017, and two brand new spinoff series hitting airwaves in 2021.
If you've got a family full of SpongeBob fans, dress up as the gang from Bikini Bottom with easy, complete, and affordable Halloween costumes. Find character outfits for the whole family -- including your four-legged friend!
This fun inflatable costume gives the wearer some of the bulky shape of the title character. The inflatable top portion of the costume comes with a fan to keep shape and comfortable. You'll be looking out of SpongeBob's mouth in this costume.
Here's another easy to wear costume. The one-piece jumpsuit or coverall has a front zipper enclosure like a set of long-legged pajamas. Put the yellow hood up for comfort and warmth.
Dressing up as a bird is easy with a quality, realistic, comfortable latex bird mask. These masks are all inspired by real bird species and make a great start to an easy costume. Wear appropriately colored clothing to copy the bird's real plumage for a great look this Halloween.
Again I'm using my skills as an avid birder to rate these masks. I'll give you some clothing ideas to match the masks, too.
This peacock mask looks fantastic, with good coloration and facial features. The feather tuft coming out the back is a nice touch. To make a complete costume, pair a blue skinsuit or leotard with a peacock-print cape. You'll be trick-or-treating for a huge variety of snacks, including bugs, seeds, berries, lizards, and more.
I'm pretty sure this parrot mask is supposed to be a Blue-and-gold Macaw, but it's missing the black stripes on the white part of the face. Pity, because the colors are pretty good and the shape is fine. Wear with a yellow shirt under a blue suit and you'll be a a pretty solid Blue-and-gold Macaw. You'll be trick-or-treating for seeds, nuts, and fruits.
Sure, you could go as an iconic white-headed Bald Eagle for Halloween, but why not add some bird education to your night by dressing up as a young eagle? Did you know that Bald Eagles don't show their full adult plumage, including a white head, until they reach about 5 years of age? Their first year, the head is fully brown. It gradually transitions to white. The beak goes through a similar transition, from black to yellow. With the beak starting to show yellow on this bird mask, this Bald Eagle mask represents a bird that's about a year old. Wear this with an all-brown outfit for a complete look -- no need for a white tail at this point! You'll be trick-or-treating for scraps and carrion, mostly. Catching prey takes years of practice.
The shape of this blue parrot mask screams Hyacinth, with its exaggerated overbite and light coloring around the eye. But that eye ring should be yellow, and a Hyacinth would also have yellow at the base of the beak. A Spix's Macaw is blue, too, but the shade is different, and in that case this mask would be missing a lot of white around the face. So this is a non-species "blue macaw mask" which is a fine look for Halloween. Wear this with whatever you want because you're making up your own species at this point. Rainbow tutu? Zebra-striped tuxedo? Go for it.
Or, you could add a DIY element, get some white or yellow paint, and commit to a species. Both are endangered (Hyacinth is Vulnerable and Spix's is unfortunately extinct in the wild) and dressing up as a specific species is a great way to spread awareness. You can inspire conservation when you go out trick-or-treating! Whatever your species, you'll most likely be on the hunt for seeds and fruits.
The shape of this hummingbird mask is great! The round head, placement of eyes, and shape of beak are all very realistic. I love the feather details too. I'm not great at hummer ID, unfortunately (there are only Ruby-throated where I live, and this is no Ruby-throated). So I'm not sure which of the world's 330 hummingbirds this is supposed to be. The bird seems to be getting a throat patch, but most North American species have this against a white bib, and this mask has a green bib. Berylline Hummingbirds have green throats, but they don't develop colored patches. So, shrug? I'm sure this would look great with pretty much any green outfit. As a bird snob, I'm usually a stickler for nailing down a species, but this hummingbird mask looks so good I'd wear it without qualms.
I guess you can tell this is an ostrich mask, but the likeness is not great. This might be a tough one to pull off unless you have an extremely long neck. Wear this with a grey top, fluffy black tutu, and pink tights for maximum effect. You'll be trick-or-treating for seeds and plants, with the occasional bug thrown in for protein.
I'm pretty sure this tuftless owl mask is meant to represent a Barred Owl, with its wide light facial discs, big black eyes, and small yellow beak. A dark line around the facial disks would add more authenticity, and the shape could be a bit wider, but overall this is a pretty good likeness. Find a vertically striped tan and brown sweater, a horizontally striped scarf in the same colors, and fluffy tan pants to pull off a complete look. You'll be trick-or-treating for lizards, mice, and shrews.
This costume swan mask is spot on! The swan head shape is very good, as is the plumage (coloration). And the complete costume is easy -- wear white! Add a flowy white cape if you want to get fancy. Get ready to get wet! You'll be trick-or-treating for aquatic plants. And stay away from bread and corn! They are bad for you.
Squid Game is the hottest series right now, gaining popularity in viewing markets all over the world. And this costume tracksuit is the perfect outfit for fans of this white hot show to wear on Halloween. Note that several different numbers (characters) are available, though not all have the same shipping times. Hurry to get this super hot costume in time for Halloween!
The outfit is a two-piece tracksuit made of 90% polyester and 10% spandex. The tracksuit top has a zip closure. A 3-digit number appears at the breast, with a larger (same) number on the back. There are two front pockets. The matching pants have stripes along the outside of the legs, hip pockets, and a drawstring closure on the elastic waist.
Pick out your number, and your size, but be sure to double-check shipping times to ensure delivery in time for Halloween or for whenever you want to get your Squid Game jumpsuit.
Other merchants are selling Squid Game jumpsuits; try these if you can't find your size and preferred number in time.

If you're looking for a low-key way to dress up for Halloween this year, why not dress up your feet with a pair of fun novelty socks inspired by super heroes? You can add some whimsy to your regular late October outfits, or use these accessories as part of a complete superhero costume.
This cute set of ankle socks feature four different superheroes. Batman and Batwoman each have little bat ears up the side of the socks. Wonder Woman's tiara sticks up on the front and you can see Superman's cape flowing behind his perfect black hair.
Get together with a bunch of your birdwatcher or bird lover buddies and go as a flock of feathered friends for Halloween!
These full face masks can be paired with appropriately-colored clothing to copy your chosen bird's plumage. I've given you some ideas along with the masks below. Note that we've covered bird costumes before so a couple of these masks have been shared on the blog in the post Fly Like a Bird this Halloween!
Since I'm an avid birder I've also given my opinion on some of the masks' authenticity to species. They are all obviously birds but some are hard to pin down to species or have strange form or color aberrations. Going as a flock of bird is a fun group Halloween costume idea for any bunch of friends, especially if they are birders, too!
I'd rate the color on this mask as B+ and the form a solid C -- the beak is too fat for an insectivore like the European Robin. Robins have eyes on the sides of their heads so you'll be looking through small holes near the mouth when you go as Robin. This robin mask would pair nicely with an orange top and a grey or off-white pair of pants. You'll be trick-or-treating for insects.
Dress up as America's bird with this adult Bald Eagle mask. This is a pretty good likeness of the species -- B+ all-around. Wear with an all-brown outfit and put on a white waist apron backwards for your majestic tail and you're done! You'll be trick-or-treating for small mammals, fish, or roadkill.
If you'd like to go as a domestic bird, this chicken mask is a good choice. The depicted bird is a white rooster, so wear this with an all-white outfit. You'll be looking through the open mouth of this mask. You'll be trick-or-treating for grains and grubs. And you'll want to stay away from the Bald Eagle.
This owl mask is a bit hard to pin down to species. By plumage and facial structure it looks more like a Long-eared Owl than the more common Great Horned Owl. Since owls have front-facing eyes, you'll be looking out of small holes near the eyes for this one. A dirty brown or tan outfit would go well with this mask. A tan camo ensemble would also work. You'll probably be trick-or-treating for small mammals.
Dress up as a Mallard with this green duck face mask. I'd give the structure of this one a C, coloration is a solid B. There are small eyeholes at the sides of the duck's bill so you can see when you're swimming around on Halloween night. Pair this with a brown top, tan pants, and orange shoes. Bonus points if you have a white collar and blue chaps. If more than one of your buddies wants to be a duck, this mask also comes in domestic duckling yellow. You'll be trick-or-treating for duckweed and other aquatic vegetation with the occasional worm or snail.
Dress up as the most recognizable bird in the world when you sport this fun full face pigeon mask! This one looks great and makes such an easy costume -- plumage variance in this bird means you can pair the mask with virtually any outfit for a plausible look. If you'd like a cleaner look or have more friends who want to go as a flying rat, this pigeon mask also comes in an all-white version. You'll be trick-or-treating for French fries, popcorn, pizza scraps and whatever crumbs you come across.
This mask is a pretty good likeness of a Scarlet Macaw. These big loud birds have amazing rainbow plumage so you can have fun with the clothes you wear with this one. On top you could wear a red shirt with a big yellow belt or a yellow shirt with a red bolero. On the bottom you could wear blue or green shorts over red tights. You'll be trick-or-treating for fruits, nuts, and seeds.
Why are Northern Cardinals depicted with yellow beaks in popular culture and novelty masks? Chicks have brownish grey beaks that become red when the bird reaches maturity. It's never yellow. On this mask I'd like to see the black around the beak a bit darker. Otherwise this is certainly recognizable as a Northern Cardinal, one of the most common neighborhood birds found in the eastern United States. This is an easy costume -- just wear red. You'll be trick-or-treating for sunflower and safflower seeds.
This mask of an Emperor Penguin is spot-on as far as plumage and structure go. A+. You'll be able to look out of the bird's open mouth. Wear this with a white outfit topped with a black jacket (a traditional tuxedo would also do nicely) to complete the look. You'll be trick-or-treating for squid and fish.
You'll be the saddest one in your group of bird friends -- you're dead! The flightless Dodo is an icon of extinction. Wear this Dodo mask with a greyish outfit and yellow shoes. You'll be trick-or-treating for fruits and nuts, probably -- accounts are murky.
This is a fun one! Match up this flamingo mask with your best pink outfit to complete the look. You'll be trick-or-treating for brine shrimp and algae, which give you your pretty pink plumage. You'll have to bend your neck to feed upside-down, though.
Halloween is just weeks away, so you better get cracking if you're going to come up with a costume idea for your group! With the release of The Incredibles 2 a couple of years ago, the animated superhero franchise is as popular as ever. Group costumes featuring the iconic characters have been an easy, affordable, recognizable, and popular choice. The endurance of the Incredibles in our popular culture means that Incredibles costumes will be wearable for years to come, making them even more affordable long-term.
If you're looking for a more modest look than the traditional skin-suit or catsuit style costume for the Incredibles, choose this comfortable skirted costume outfit. The skirt is detachable so the outfit can be worn traditionally or with skirt.
Want to be a superhero but not an Incredible? You have options, like going as Syndrome. You'll need crazy hair like his -- get this wig if you can't make your own coif do this madness. Pick up Syndrome's T-Shirt too.
Let your furkid join in the group costume fun with this superhero costume made just for dogs! The Incredibles costume for four-legged furry friends includes a jumpsuit available in six different sizes and a matching hero face mask.
Let others use their imagination while you remain comfortable in these funny costume-style t-shirts. What makes them costume t-shirts? They say they are, right in the design. Each funny shirt proclaims the wearer is actually another creature, imaginary character, or animal -- and that they are just wearing a human costume. Pick your favorite alter ego and get ready to rock Halloween in your human costume.
Let out a few bleats and maahs here and there to add to the authenticity of this funny costume t-shirt. Bold text reads "I'm a Goat" in all caps, with the parenthetical subtitle "In a Human Costume". A small tan silhouette of a goat is shown underneath.
Tip: wear these dark grey hoof shoe covers along with this shirt for an added layer of authenticity while keeping the costume easy and comfortable.
Exude the magic of the ocean when you wear this funny costume t-shirt. Here the main slogan is "I'm a Narwhal" with the funny parenthetical add-on below: "in a human costume". The text is accompanied by a cute cartoon drawing of a narwhal, the unique species of whale known for its protruding horn-like tusk.
Tip: wear this shirt with this costume horn headband for added authenticity. You'll still be comfortable in your t-shirt costume but you'll turn more heads with the simple and affordable added accessory.
Wear this costume t-shirt for an out of this world easy look for Halloween. The black shirt (also available in a wide variety of colors) features white and alien green text that reads "This is my Human Costume I'm Really an Alien" in all caps. The text is accompanied by a typical "little green man" face icon.
Tip: Wear a pair of alien style novelty sunglasses like these along with this funny costume t-shirt for some added humor.
You don't have to dress up like a sexy Wonder Woman ala Gal Gadot in recent popular films, or the revealing outfit worn by Lynda Carter in the 1970s television show.
You can be comfortable, and even cozy and warm, dressing up as Wonder Woman for Halloween with this costume ensemble. Wear a hoodie with a pair of leggings to get the look without the unnecessary reveal. You can be a superhero in complete comfort!
You'll be warm while cosplaying the strong female superhero character. This is a fitted style zip-up hoodie with all of the patriotic stylings that make Wonder Woman recognizable. The red bodice is framed by blue sleeves with white stars. The zip costume hoodie also has handy pockets, a sparkly W logo at the chest, and yellow cuffs that replicate the arm cuffs typically worn by the comic book character.
These comfortable blue costume leggings are made of a sporty blend of polyester and spandex. The stretch material is comfortable to wear, has a slim fit, and is easy to don and doff. The full-length hero leggings has white stars along the outside of the legs and the iconic Wonder Woman logo printed at the waist. Note the size of these is made as "one size fits most"; for further guidance, shoppers have shared their sizing experiences in the reviews.
