What Costumes Should Girls Who Are 10 & 11 Wear for Halloween?

Save

When it's time to choose a Halloween costume for your 10 or 11-year-old, prepare for a conflict of interest. At this age, she might want to wear an outfit similar to one on a television show that is a little on the risque side for her age. As a parent, it's your job to steer her away from those overly revealing short skirts and low cut tops. That doesn't mean she can't wear a costume with a little "sass" to it. There are many costumes that are flirtatious without crossing the line.

If your daughter wants to wear something cute, but you want to avoid cute crossing over to "too revealing," choose the Tinkerbell Classic Rescue costume. This costume features a dress that is knee-length, instead of some of the shorter ones for other costumes. It's form fitting on top, but not low cut enough to be too revealing for 10-year-olds who are starting to develop. The wings add a little bit of fantasy for her, helping her remember the Disney films of her childhood without wearing a mask or heavy costume. You can choose with her the amount of makeup she wears to accent the costume.

Pirate costumes are not just for boys. The Elizabeth costume from "Pirates of the Caribbean" allows your daughter to wear a costume based on the popular pirate movies. This costume also lets her feel "international" as it features a kimono adding the Asian touch to the costume. Under the kimono is a dress — these two combine to reveal very little skin, helping you feel comfortable your daughter is not revealing too much.

Dress your daughter up like a cowgirl to celebrate the Wild West theme. She can wear a pink cowgirl hat and a vest. You can purchase the best, or make it yourself so she can choose her own material pattern. A pair of jeans and T-shirt can finish off the costume. Don't forget the boots though, a pair of pink ones will help show that boys aren't the only ones who can tame the Wild West.

Cheerleader Halloween costumes range from classic to ones that are way too revealing for a 10-year-old girl to wear. If your child is a cheerleader, you don't have to worry about buying a costume, just use the uniform she wears for her cheerleading activities. If it's cold in your part of the country, have her wear sweatpants under the skirt and possibly a sweatshirt under the top. If you must purchase one instead, choose one with the skirt that is knee-length or longer. Let her accessorize her costume by choosing a pair of boots or sneakers and some jewelry.
