Cosplay is one of the best things about going to a convention. Kids love dress ups at the best of times but it’s so much better at a con, where they can see the adults joining in the fun too and come face to face with their favourite characters. Here’s my favourite fantabuously easy kid cosplay ideas so the whole family can join in!
Easy Kid Cosplay Ideas
Kara Danvers (from Supergirl)
Layer tee under dress shirt and pants/skirt. Unbutton dress shirt halfway to show logo. Pop on some fake glasses for a perfect Supergirl.
Dagobah Luke & Yoda (from Star Wars)
This one is perfect for babywearers! If your little one is old enough for a back carry, pop them on with some Yoda ears and you is done man!
Kiki (from Kiki’s Delivery Service)
One for the Studio Ghibli fans! Kiki is a wonderful character, and such an easy cosplay for your little one.
Tintin (from Tintin)
Tintin is a classic for a reason. What really sells this cosplay is the hairdo, and luckily there are some fantastic tutorials around to help you get that classic fringe.
Casual Princess Bubblegum (from Adventure Time)
Princess Bubblegum has a lot of looks out there, but I’m a big fan of her casual one particularly, because it’s so easy to put together. Her crown looks challenging, but it’s actually a breeze. Check the tutorial. .
Peter Parker (from Spiderman)
Layer Spiderman tee under dress clothes, unbuttoning shirt slightly as with Supergirl. Pop a camera around your neck and you are done! If you want to make this a family cosplay, wear a grey wig in a bun and a floral dress to be Aunt May!
The Eleventh Doctor
The Doctor is one of the most popular cosplay characters at a con, and it’s primarily because he’s so easy to copy! What really sells this are the accessories – luckily fezzes are pretty easy to DIY – just remember the Doctor’s doesn’t have a tassel.
Elliot & ET
This is possibly the easiest cosplay of all time because most kids will already have the stuff in their closet with the exception of the ET doll, which can usually be found at an op shop. If you can’t locate one, just print out a mask and pop it on a teddy bear. Once you wrap it in the blanket, no-one will know the difference!
Coraline is one of my absolute favourite kids characters of all time. She’s tough, scrappy and above all, easy to cosplay!
Obscure, yes. Easy, definitely! Just get your kid to walk around complaining about the lack of tea to make this cosplay come together!
